The rumors about Andrew Wiggins announcing his collegiate choice on Tuesday have now been verified, per Wiggins’ high school basketball coach, Rob Fulford:
Andrew Wiggins will sign Tuesday at around 12:15. He will not hold a press conference type ceremony. Just classmates, family and friends

The highly anticipated Andrew Wiggins decision saga is officially coming to a close. It’s interesting that, like Fulford said, there is no press conference. This means that his announcement will not be streamed on television or the web. Twitter will become our best source for information through the rest of this process. However, there will be one reporter allowed at the ceremony. That reporter is Grant Taylor, a sports reporter for The Herald-Dispatcher in Huntington, West Virginia. As you can probably guess, Taylor has become quite the follow on Twitter.
Just for the record, I was at 1,968 followers about an hour ago. Lol

To put this in perspective for you, as of 9:20, Taylor is at 4,325 follwers on Twitter.
All we know is that the Canadian star has narrowed his collegiate decision down to Florida State, Kentucky, North Carolina and Kansas. Wiggins is a 6-foot-7 small forward who will make a significant impact on the basketball program of his choice. He is the No. 1 recruit for the 2013 class and is already being predicted as the No. 1 NBA draft pick for 2014.
At least after Tuesday, the Wiggins anticipation will be over and we will finally know where he’s headed.
