Andrew Wiggins Possibly Headed to Kentucky?

Andrew Wiggins declined to talk about his recruitment after taking an official visit to Kentucky this week. “He’s not going to give up much,” Huntington Prep coach Rob Fulford said. “You guys know him well enough.” Wiggins’ parents, both of whom attended Florida State, accompanied him on the trip to Kentucky. Fulford addressed a popular narrative in recruiting circles that Wiggins is already sold on Kentucky and that this week’s trip was about selling his parents on the Wildcats. “That could be. It could be. I don’t know,” Fulford said. “There’s no doubt about it that it could be. The fact that his parents are on his visits is crucial. Had they not gone to any of the other ones, I would have said that Florida State was a lock. Because they wouldn’t have had anything to compare it to. The fact that they are going says a lot about the process and that they had a chance to see different places.”

Something's definitely up here. I have to agree with the author of the article in thinking that the only reason that Wiggins' would take his parents with him to UK, is to try and convince them that it's the right choice for him. Calipari has been raking in the top high school prospects over the years, and the 6'8 small forward out of Toronto, Canada could be his latest prize.
