5 Storylines to Watch: Top recruit Andrew Wiggins visits UNC

Here are the top five storylines for this week.

1. Wiggins taking it all in.

The country’s top senior, Huntington (W.Va.) Prep swingman Andrew Wiggins capped off his visit schedule this past weekend at North Carolina for its big game against archrival Duke. Wiggins had already visited Kentucky, Kansas and Florida State.

But now that the “Wiggins college tour” is over, don’t expect to hear how each visit affected his recruitment. Wiggins told us back in December that he hates the attention the recruiting process brings.

Still, this week will be interesting as rumors fly about Wiggins’ favorites.

2. Meadows vs. Frazier on the diamond

Wednesday, Grayson (Loganville, Ga.) pitcher Austin Meadows, a Clemson signee who is widely regarded as the country’s No. 1 prospect, will go head-to-head against Loganville (Ga.) infielder Clint Frazier, a Georgia signee who is widely regarded as the country’s No. 2 prospect.

Both teams have opened the season strong, but we’re picking Grayson and Meadows to ultimately prevail in this one.

3. Is Wilson’s offer coming this week?

Robinson (Fairfax, Va.) running back Joe Wilson led the AAA Northern Region with 2,358 rushing yards and 33 touchdowns last season.

But the Washington Post reports that all that production has yet to produce any college football scholarship offers.

Is this the week that Wilson, a 5-foot-10, 195-pound junior, gets his due?

4. Millbrook removes all doubt.

Millbrook’s (Raleigh, N.C.) girls’ basketball team left no doubt about who was tops in North Carolina, handily knocking off Southeast (Raleigh, N.C.), 58-39, last week in the state 4A Final Four.

Both teams came into the game undefeated.

Saturday the Wildcats will make their third-straight appearance in the state title game against Page (Greensboro, N.C.). Can they bring home their second-straight title?

They can and will.

5. What’s Freeman got for an encore?

Rocky Mount Prep (Rocky Mount, N.C.) forward DeShawn Freeman racked up 25 points and 16 rebounds in Prep’s, 77-58, win over East Carteret (Beaufort, N.C.) last weekend in the 1A state Final Four. Jacob Barrett added firepower from the perimeter with 22 points in the win, but it was Freeman’s eight monster dunks that took the wind out of East Carteret’s sails.

Can Freeman top that production in the state title game against Statesville (Statesville, N.C.) Saturday?

Of course.

Freeman is a major matchup problem. Expect another dominant performance from him and another dominating win from Prep.
