Kentucky Wildcats Basketball Recruiting News: Updates on Andrew Wiggins and Dominique Hawkins

Big time recruiting updates.

Let’s first start with Dominique Hawkins. The Madison Central guard will get a scholarship offer from John Calipari tomorrow, at least that’s what the twitter world is saying:

Jerry Meyer:

(#173 247Sports/#255 247Composite) Dominique Hawkins committing soon to Kentucky? Update by 247Sports’ Chris Fisher.

Don Bodner:

Rumblings that there is going to be space for both Andrew Wiggins and Dominique Hawkins next year. That would mean 4 returning scholarships.

Louisville Magic (Hawkins’ AAU Basketball Team):

Dominique Hawkins will sign with UK tomorrow!

Exciting news for the Kentucky native if this is all true. The addition of Hawkins will leave questions about roster space and the number of point guards that John Calipari has on the team. Ryan Harrow is currently on the roster and Andrew Harrison is committed to Kentucky. Does Cal need three PG’s on scholarship? I’m hoping we will get more answers before the day is over.

Now, on to Andrew Wiggins. Evan Daniels is reporting on twitter that John Calipari will meet with Wiggins sometime early this afternoon after Huntington Prep’s send off for him as he travels to the McDonald’s All American Game. No other coaches are named as also visiting Wiggins.

Is this Cal’s last big push for Wiggins? Is he discussing an announcement date? Nobody knows, but I am taking this as a good sign.

Check in for more news as it develops.
