Wiggins to announce decision Tuesday

May. 12, 2013 @ 11:49 PM

HUNTINGTON -- For months, all eyes have been on Huntington Prep's Andrew Wiggins, picking apart his words and actions in hopes of getting an edge on where he may end up going to college.

Now, the speculation is about to end.

On Sunday, Huntington Prep coach Rob Fulford announced that Wiggins, the nation's No. 1 prospect, will sign his National Letter of Intent at 12:15 p.m. Tuesday in a closed ceremony at Huntington St. Joe.

"Andrew is going to have a ceremony, but he wanted it to be those closest to him," Fulford said. "It's just going to be classmates, friends and family."

No one -- not even Fulford -- knows where Wiggins will end up at this point, but his final four schools are Florida State, Kansas, Kentucky and North Carolina.

On Tuesday, one of those schools will gain a player who is considered the No. 1 overall NBA Draft Pick for 2014.

Wiggins' announcement has been anticipated since Wiggins reclassified from the Class of 2014 to the Class of 2013 in the fall prior to his final season at Huntington Prep.

It was quite an impressive season as he earned several accolades, including Naismith Player of the Year and Gatorade Boys Basketball National Player of the Year.

Wiggins averaged 23.4 points, 11.2 rebounds, 2.6 blocks and 2.5 assists on the season and led Huntington Prep to a 30-3 overall record.

Once Huntington Prep's season ended, Wiggins participated in the McDonald's All-American Game and the Jordan Brand Classic -- both of the nation's prestigious high school all-star events.
