Kennedy Meeks and Nate Britt members of the North Carolina 2013 class are both putting their recruiting hats on and going after the nations #1 prospect Andrew Wiggins. Wiggins is considering UNC along with Kentucky, Florida State and Kansas, if Meeks and Britt have their way, Wiggins will call Chapel Hill home next season.
Wiggins recruitment is anybody’s guess. Some insist that Kentucky and Florida State are ahead while Wiggins and his high school coach insist that is simply not true. Wiggins is planning on taking visits after his season is over in March and should sign in April. It is well documented that he is not a fan of the whole recruiting process and is not the typical attention seeking upper echelon prospect. Wiggins recently went off for 57 points after a critical column published by SI. Although he might not like the national attention the respect from his peers has to be flattering.
If Kennedy Meeks doesn’t help lure Andrew Wiggins to UNC it won’t be for lack of effort: “I am going hard at that man! I don’t know though.”

Nate Britt had this to say on the subject.
“That’s who we’re trying to get,” said Britt on Monday following a loss to Simeon at the Hoophall Classic. “I talked to him as much as possible. I know coach goes and sees him as much as he can.” NBC Sports
Adding Wiggins would be huge for the Tar Heels who have struggled this season without a perimeter player who can create his own shot at will and put the team on his back when things are going wrong. Wiggins simply embodies everything this team needs and could take them from an NCAA Tournament bubble team to a true national title contender.
