Andrew Wiggins, the No. 1 recruit in all of high school basketball, will be in Rupp Arena for Big Blue Madness on Oct. 12.
Huntington Prep coach Rob Fulford confirmed the visit in a text message to the Herald-Leader on Tuesday. The news was first reported by Scout.com’s Evan Daniels.
Wiggins joins a growing list of expected guests for the season-opening event.
UK’s only 2013 commitment, Derek Willis, will use the weekend for his official visit. Marcus Lee, another 2013 forward, will also be in Lexington on an official visit. Class of 2014 targets Cliff Alexander and JaQuan Lyle said on Twitter that they were planning to attend. If Andrew and Aaron Harrison choose UK over Maryland on Thursday, they too would be likely visitors for Madness.
Wiggins is currently a member of the class of 2014, but he could reclassify to 2013 soon. If he makes the move, he would likely be the unanimous No. 1 recruit in that class.
