We have two interesting pieces of news concerning Andrew Wiggins, the best high school basketball player in the country. Both come from Rob Fulford, his head coach at Huntington Prep.
— Fulford told Cats Illustrated that Wiggins could decide as early as next week whether or not he’ll reclassify to the 2013 class. Wiggins is the top ranked player in the 2014 class and he’ll likely be the top ranked senior if he makes the jump. Fulford, the one person with a legitimate reason to think Wiggins should remain a junior, said his suggestion is for him to reclassify. That says a lot.
— In a response to a tweet from @UKBigBlueNation, Fulford said Huntington Prep will play a home game in Lexington and Louisville next season. That means Cats fans will get a chance to see Wiggins and Xavier Rathan-Mayes in person without having to travel to West Virginia. The dates aren’t set in stone but Fulford said they’re exploring possibilities in November.
