Andrew Wiggins will arrive in Lexington for his official visit at Kentucky on Wednesday.
Wiggins will visit Kansas and North Carolina next week.
Wiggins has narrowed his choices down to Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina and Florida State. Wiggins visited Florida State in December.
Wiggins attended Big Blue Madness last season, as well as that season's North Carolina game.
"He's excited, and he doesn't care who they're playing," Huntington Prep Coach Rob Fulford told the Herald-Leader. "I know it's probably not the greatest game in the world for Kentucky. But he was at the Carolina game last year, so he's seen the atmosphere when it's at its highest."
Wiggins will be accompanied by his parents, who are coming down from Canada for the visit.

Andrew Wiggins scored 57 points on 24-of-28 shooting, grabbed 13 rebounds and blocked 4 shots in Huntington Prep's 111-59 win over Marietta College JV on Thursday night.
Earlier Thursday, Wiggins caught wind of a Sports Illustrated article that portrayed him as a player who doesn't go full-tilt against lesser competition.
"I just had to respond to the negative outlook that the reporter gave me," Wiggins said. "I thought I responded well. Negative media happens to everybody. You just have to work through it and respond."
Just hours earlier, Wiggins was named one of three finalists for the Naismith Player of the Year Award, given annually to the nation's top high school basketball player
The other Naismith Award candidates are Simeon's Jabari Parker and Aaron Gordon of Archbishop Mitty.
"All three are great players and I think Andrew separates himself from the other two in that he can dominate games in ways on both ends of the court," Huntington Prep coach Rob Fulford said.

Andrew Wiggins has gained a reputation for only playing hard against top competition.
"When the big games come, I show up," Wiggins said. "I'm more than ready to play. When we play a team I know we're going to blow out or anything like that, I'm not as motivated."
One assistant coach summed up Wiggins this way: "He has the highest ceiling I've seen in high school for a long time. Once he figures out how to play with a motor all the time, I think he'll be an NBA All-Star. I'm not saying he doesn't play hard, but he knows he's good enough to turn it on and off."
Wiggins has struggled on the court lately, something that's been attributed to everything from a case of bronchitis to apathy to the pressure of his college choice.
"I think it's the lack of competition that has him disinterested,” said Nolan Shulman, a Canadian recruiting analyst. “He is driven by competition. When it isn't there he turns his effort off and goes through the motions."
