The 6’7″ and 190 pound forward from West Virginia has yet again narrowed his list down and has begun to schedule visits with those five schools.

His current list of top school choices is as followed: Florida State, North Carolina, Kentucky, and Kansas. He has eliminated Syrcause and Ohio State, leaving the four schools mentioned above as his only remaining top choices at the moment.

Wiggins has tentatively schedule visits to Kentucky on February 27 when they play Mississippi State, Kansas on March 3rd when they play West Virginia, and March 9th when North Carolina hosts Duke. All of the visits are pending, per parents approval that they can make the trip. Wiggins’ visit to Chapel Hill will be a bit tricky as he has a AAU game on that day with a TBA starting time.

Wiggins has already visited Florida State and is widely expected to commit to the Seminoles.

After facing some public criticism, Wiggins returned with a rebuttal of 57 points in a game last week.

It appears that he is getting closer to making a college decision very soon and seems that a decision could come shortly after the March 9th North Carolina v. Duke game.
