ORIGINAL STORY
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Top basketball prospect Andrew Wiggins is set to go public with his college choice.

Wiggins will sign a letter-of-intent at a private ceremony Tuesday afternoon in Huntington. He previously narrowed his choices to Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina and Florida State.

The Canadian star averaged 23.4 points and 11.2 rebounds per game this season for West Virginia's Huntington Prep.

Initially rated as a 2014 prospect, Wiggins shot to the top of recruiting charts when he decided last October to reclassify into his original high school class of 2013. The four major recruiting services have rated Wiggins as the No. 1 overall prospect.

Although his parents both attended Florida State, the Toronto-born Wiggins has kept quiet about his intentions. He had until Wednesday to sign with a Division I school.

WSAZ.com will have a crew at the announcement. Be sure to follow @KeithMorehouse for the the latest information on Wiggins' choice.
