It’s time to crank up the rumor mill again. This time, it’s Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio with a new tidbit. He says he has reason to believe Andrew Wiggins, the nation’s No. 1 basketball recruit, will not be choosing North Carolina.
I have reason to believe that Wiggins will ultimately pick UK, Florida State or Kansas. I think North Carolina is unlikely at this point

Jones seems to think that Kentucky, Kansas and Florida State are all a leg up in the recruiting process. Of course, nothing is final until we hear from Wiggins himself, who has been silent on the matter for months.
While all three schools’ fan bases have expressed their desire to land Wiggins, Kentucky’s following seems to be making the biggest push. If the Wildcats could secure the Canadian prep star, they’d arguably have the greatest recruiting class ever assembled.
