Cancelled all the in-home visits this week.
I'd say that's a pretty good sign it's a done deal to UK. I'm sure the media will run with the "he's tired...he doesn't like the recruiting process" angle, but I think this is pretty clear that it's done to Kentucky.
I guess he's had some issues getting home. Still I think UK looks good here.
Yea, sounds like he legitimately is stuck in Portland.
Sucks that Self doesn't get another face to face in-home, but I'm with you on the UK stuff.
At this point I am hoping for a full on fist fight on the Kentucky bench at some point in the season.
If Wiggins goes to UK, it's going to make college basketball pretty difficult to watch next year. I'll (obviously) watch the KU games, but even those I may have to mute.
Anything weird that happens with elite recruiting these days just smells like UK. Putting that aside for a moment, clearly there's no way to frame this as good for KU, but Self could still end up with an in-home. If you believe the kid is legitimately undecided, this could drag out and he could end up rescheduling.
I am pretty sure Wednesday is the last day to have in-homes until after the end of the late signing period. Given Wiggins has said he wants to sign during the late signing period I doubt these get rescheduled.
Sounds like a done deal to UK to me. It's rather amazing that all these top 10 kids think they can all shine on 1 team with 1 ball.
That's why I qualified it with, if he's legitimately undecided. The rules on when a coach can do an in-home are pretty dumb though. As long as the kid has reached January of his junior year (or whenever they want to put the starting line), I see no reason to limit dates of in-home visits. If anything, they should only limit it while the NCAA tournament is still on. It's different than limiting evaluation days -- that involves travel for the kids, and pushes them to make the trips to be seen. In-home only requires effort from the coaches. As long as the limit it to one per coaching staff and some number total for the recruit, timing should be between the players and coaches.

I still refuse to concede anything to UK. But what I think doesn't make a whole lot of difference.
All these people might be right, Wiggins is going to Kentucky... But I hope Self fights to the end on this one (and every recruiting battle). Sooner or later the blush is coming off of the UK rose and the coaches who coach and care about what is good for the game, the players and the fans are going to come out on top.
