Report: A tired Andrew Wiggins cancels his in-home visits this week

10 Comments

Jeff Goodman set the college basketball twittersphere ablaze on Monday morning when he tweeted out the following:

Wiggins is being recruited by four schools: Kansas, UNC, Florida State and Kentucky. Kentucky is the only one you don’t see mentioned above. Thus, this means he has to be going to Kentucky because totally the only reason that anyone would ever cancel visits is, like, they know where they want to go, right?

Typically, yes. That would probably be the case.

But there is nothing typical about Andrew Wiggins. And there is nothing typical about his recruitment.

Wiggins doesn’t enjoy the spotlight. He’s exhausted by the recruiting process and the incessant media attention that it gets. He’s spent the past three weeks criss-crossing the country for all-star events. He still hasn’t gotten home from the Nike Hoop Summit this past weekend thanks to flight cancellations. And he’ll still be talking to those coaches by phone.

The kid just wants a break.
