Right now, the college basketball world is hanging on Andrew Wiggins’ every move. Today, CBS’ Jeff Goodman tweeted out that Andrew Wiggins had canceled his final meetings with Roy Williams, Leonard Hamilton and Bill Self.

BBN freaked out. The feeling was that Wiggins knew needed all he needed to know and had possibly made his decision. The last coach that he met with in person was John Calipari. So, how could this news be anything but good?

And then Wiggins high school coach put on the breaks:

Andrew Wiggins has cancelled his in-home visits this week with North Carolina, Kansas and Florida State.

The 6-foot-7 Wiggins was to have met today with Roy Williams,Tuesday with Bill Self and Wednesday with Leonard Hamilton.

“He will be doing them by phone,” Huntington (W.V.) Prep coachRob Fulford told SNY.tv. “He’s drained and didn’t want to meet.

“There is no timetable. He’s not back from Portland. He has had two flights cancelled.”

The NCAA Recruiting period ends Wednesday, and a Quiet Period starts Thursday. After Wednesday, he can’t do any off-campus contact visits.

So, there ya go. Wiggins was stuck in Portland and is drained from three weeks worth of All Star Games. And don’t expect anything out of him anytime soon. He plans on chilling out for a while when he finally does return home:

I’m looking forward to shutting down for a couple of days, getting some rest, getting some ‘me’ time and just chilling with my friends and cherish the last few days I have of summer before it all gets crazy,” he told Michael Grange of sportsnet.ca. “I’ve been travelling for like three weeks straight so I’m just looking forward to being able to relax and watch TV for hours for hours and lay in my bed for hours and just be me

Still, his last coach-to-player in person visit was with John Calipari. And he has been hanging out with UK guys for three weeks. I have a good feeling about this.

Happy birthday Ryan Harrow. No matter what we may think of the former Kentucky point guard, he was still a Wildcat, for better or for worse. Harrow is transferring to Georgia State after struggling as Kentucky’s point guard on and off the court this season.
