Wiggins cited fatigue from the Oregon trip for canceling scheduled visits from North Carolina coach Roy Williams, Kansas' Bill Self and Florida State's Leonard Hamilton. Wiggins instead talked to them by phone. Kentucky coach John Calipari had visited Wiggins in Huntington on March 28.
Rob Fulford, Wiggins' coach at Huntington Prep, has said he tried to stay out of the player's decision, other than explaining to him what to look for in a program.
"What I do during the recruiting process is make sure you understand the style of play, coaching styles and can you see yourself playing for this team, this coach and these teammates," Fulford said. "Because that's mainly what it boils down to. Don't worry about buildings. Everybody has a nice practice facility."
While mulling his decision, Wiggins had to sort out family matters and figuring out who he might have to share the court with.
His Huntington Prep teammate and fellow Toronto native, Xavier Rathan-Mayes, signed with Florida State in December. Both of Wiggins' parents attended Florida State.
His father is former NBA first-round pick Mitchell Wiggins. His mother, Marita Payne-Wiggins, was a Canadian Olympic sprinter and silver medalist. Older brother Nick plays guard at Wichita State and another brother, Mitchell Jr., plays at NAIA school Southeastern University in Lakeland, Fla.
Kentucky already has eight signees in what is considered to be its greatest recruiting class ever.
Despite the loss of Ben McLemore to the NBA draft, four of Kansas' five recruits are considered to be in the top 50 nationally.
North Carolina's recruiting class includes McDonald's All-American big men Isaiah Hicks and Kennedy Meeks.Besides Rathan-Mayes, three other Huntington Prep teammates signed at Division I schools: Moses Kingsley at Arkansas, Dominic Woodson at Baylor and Travon Landry at Tennessee.
