Andrew Wiggins Considering Kentucky, Florida State
Andrew Wiggins, a 6-foot-7, 200 pound small forward rated as the No. 1 prep prospect in the 2014 class, is considering Kentucky and Florida State.
Andrew is the son of Mitchel Wiggins, a former NBA player who played six seasons in the late 80s and early 90s, and Marita Payne, a former Olympic track athlete. Wiggins is currently attending Huntington Prep in Huntington, W.Va., playing for coach Rob Fulford.
“He would like to go to Florida State to follow his parents, but at the same time he knows it would be a lot of pressure to follow in his dad’s footsteps, so I think it just depends on what day of the week it is,” coach Fulford said.
As for Kentucky, Fulford said: “I think Kentucky’s obviously in it. They’re close to where we’re at. He went up to the North Carolina game. He went up to the Florida football game. He’s been there a couple times, and obviously Coach Cal was at a game a couple weeks ago.
“So I think right now Kentucky’s right now, as far as recruiting purposes, they’re probably a little bit more involved than anybody else.”
Of Kentucky, Wiggins said, “It’s an honor. That school’s a great school, great environment, great fans, players and coach.”
