Quick Take: Andrew Wiggins took an official visit to Florida State at the beginning of December and at this point all signs are pointing to the Seminoles as the leader in the one. Kentucky, who has had him on campus a couple of times for unofficial visits, is certainly still in the mix. Roy Williams met with Wiggins on Thursday. According to his high school coach – Rob Fulford – Wiggins informed the UNC head coach that he would visit the Tar Heels. Kansas and Kentucky will likely get official visits as well, according to Fulford.

Quick Take: Randle has already taken official visits to Florida and Kentucky. Now he's scheduled to visit North Carolina State the weekend of January 26th and then he'll visit Kansas and Texas in February. Oklahoma is also on his list, but at this point doesn't appear to be getting an official visit. His overall recruitment is tough to handicap as all five schools getting official visits appear to be in play at this point.

Quick Take: Aaron Gordon, a top 10 recruit, is down to a trio of schools – Arizona, Kentucky and Washington. He's taken official visits to all three and contemplated making a commitment and signing early. Gordon just wasn't ready so he's opted to wait it out. He'll likely evaluate the schools over the next few months and make his college choice. As far as a leader goes, many believed Washington had the edge early on, but things have evened out it seems.

Quick Take: Dakari Johnson, one of the best centers in the country, surprised reporters when he cut his list to Georgetown, Kentucky and Syracuse at the City of Palms. Johnson went to middle school in Lexington, so there are some obvious connections with Kentucky. He's also developed good relationships with both Syracuse and Georgetown. He'll likely take official visits before he makes his college choice; so don't expect a decision in the near future.

Quick Take: Last week Jermaine Lawrence, a five-star recruit, cut Syracuse from his final list. That leaves Cincinnati, St. John's and UNLV on his list. Word on the street is he's going to visit St. John's in January. He's been to both Cincinnati and UNLV. Lawrence isn't in a hurry with his college recruitment. He'll likely wait this deal out until the spring.

Quick Take: Keith Frazier's recruitment is getting tough to figure out. He opted to wait until the spring to make a college choice. The schools recruiting him the hardest appear to be SMU, LSU, Texas A&M and Texas. Arizona is dabbling with him, but the interest doesn't appear to be all that serious. At this point, many are starting to think that Frazier will likely look to stay closer to home, which makes sense with the list of schools showing the most attention.

Quick Take: Rysheed Jordan is down to three schools – St. John's, Temple and UCLA. According to his travel team coach – Kamal Yard – Jordan won't make his college choice until following his senior season. He took an official visit to UCLA in early December and he's already taken trips to St. John's and Temple. According to Yard, he won't add any more schools and is currently trying to decide if he wants to stay on the East Coast or go away for college.

Quick Take: Demetrius Henry isn't in a hurry to make a college choice. According to his high school coach Kenny Gillion, Henry won't decide until after the season. He's taken official visits to Rutgers and Clemson and he's been to USF unofficially. The plan is to likely take official visits to Texas, Miami and South Carolina. According to Gillion, he won't start taking those visits until late February or early March.
