WHEELING, W.Va. — A month after his first official visit, there have been no new developments in the recruitment of No. 1-ranked high school basketball prospect Andrew Wiggins.
Wiggins and Huntington Prep suffered their first loss of the season — a 59-46 defeat to Prime Prep (Texas) — Friday night at the Cancer Research Classic.
Wiggins declined to talk to reporters after the game, but Huntington Prep Coach Rob Fulford said nothing had changed in his recruitment.
"He's still planning to visit the ones he said he was going to visit," Fulford said. "The only problem is when. We don't have any open dates until March."

Wiggins took a trip to Florida State in early December, which remains his only official visit. Officials to Kentucky, North Carolina and Kansas are still being planned. Wiggins met with UNC Coach Roy Williams last week, but no specific visit date was set.
Some reports have Wiggins leaning toward FSU — the school where both of his parents were star athletes — but Fulford said there's still no leader.
And Wiggins isn't saying anything.
"That's not coming from Andrew," Fulford said. "He still doesn't talk about it. Anyone that puts anything out right now — that's pure speculation. Andrew, he doesn't communicate with anybody. It's not like he's told Kentucky or anyone else, 'I'm leaning toward Florida State.' He doesn't communicate like that."
