Andrew Wiggins has canceled his in-person visits with the head coaches from North Carolina, Kansas and Florida State that were scheduled for this week.

Huntington Prep Coach Rob Fulford confirmed to the Herald-Leader that Wiggins would not meet with Roy Williams, Bill Self or Leonard Hamilton. Williams was scheduled to be in Huntington today, Self on Tuesday and Hamilton on Wednesday.

Instead, Wiggins will talk to all three coaches over the phone.

Fulford told the Herald-Leader that Wiggins was “drained” from his recent trip to the Nike Hoop Summit in Portland, Ore., which included two canceled flights on the way home. As of 10:15 a.m., Wiggins had not returned to Huntington due to the travel problems.

UK Coach John Calipari visited Wiggins in Huntington on March 28.

Fulford added that there is still “no timetable” for a college announcement from the No. 1-rated prospect in the class of 2013.
