Top University of Kentucky basketball recruit Andrew Wiggins will be back on the national stage Saturday.

Wiggins and Huntington (W.Va.) Prep are scheduled to face Cape Henry (Va.) at 4 p.m. in a game that will be televised on ESPN.

The 6-foot-8 senior forward is the No. 1 overall prospect in high school basketball and has narrowed his list to UK, Florida State, North Carolina and Kansas.

John Calipari and UK assistant Orlando Antigua watched Wiggins play in Wheeling, W.Va., last week. There is no timetable for his college decision, but he is expected to wait until after the high school season.

The regular signing period begins April 17.

Huntington Prep also includes sophomore forward Montaque Gill-Caesar, who has drawn some early interest from UK.

The Express (15-1) suffered their first loss of the season last week and fell to No. 5 in ESPN's national rankings.
