The nation’s number one overall prospect, and the easy choice for the top player in the class of 2014,  is expected to attend Kentucky’s event this weekend at Rupp Arena.   Over the last few days reports have surfaced that have said that Wiggins will be cancelling that visit to head to his hometown of Toronto to spend time with his family. On Monday afternoon, Cats Illustrated caught up with Wiggins high school coach, Rob Fulford of Huntington (W.V.) Prep to get the real scoop on what Wiggins’ weekend plans are.   “We’re still not exactly sure what Andrew is going to do this weekend,” coach Fulford said, “He had told John (Calipari) that he would be coming to their event when they were down here a few weeks ago. I’ve heard all the reports out there, but Andrew hasn’t told me that anything has changed.”  As a seventeen year old who lives far away from home and his family, Wiggins obviously would like to take advantage of every situation that he can to return to Toronto and spend time with family members. With practice starting up a week from Tuesday at Huntington Prep, this could be Wiggins last chance to get back to Canada until well after his team finishes their high school season.
