Andrew Wiggins cancels visits; HS coach says, 'It means nothing'

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

The top-ranked amateur basketball player in the world isn't ready to make a college decision just yet, but it looks like he's making progress.

Andrew Wiggins canceled his scheduled in-home visits with Florida State, Kansas and North Carolina for this week, as first reported by our own Jeff Goodman.

What this means is that John Calipari and Kentucky essentially got the last in-person visit with Wiggins -- and as a result, many are reading into this latest piece of news as a major sign that he is Lexington-bound.

Not so fast, Wiggins' high school coach said.

“It means nothing,” Rob Fulford told CBSSports.com Monday morning. “He's just tired. He doesn't want to deal with it.”

Wiggins played for the World Team at the Nike Hoop Summit this past weekend, and is still stuck in Portland after his flight home was canceled.

“He's just drained,” Fulford said. “He is shutting it down.”

Wiggins, a 6-foot-7 Canada native who attends Huntington Prep (W.Va.), is the No. 1 player in the class of 2013. He had 17 points, nine rebounds and four assists to lead the World Select team to a victory over Team USA on Saturday.
