As the entire college hoops world awaits the decision of the consensus No. 1 recruit in the 2013 class, Kansas' Bill Self might have one last chance to make a good impression.

According to SNY.tv, Self will travel to Huntington to meet with Andrew Wiggins and his family on Tuesday, April 23, with UNC's Roy Williams scheduled to visit a day before.

Wiggins, the 6'8" dynamic small forward from Huntington Prep (Huntington, WV), is still considering the Jayhawks along with Kentucky, Florida State and North Carolina.

Florida State and Kentucky have been considered by many to be front-runners, with his older brother, Wichita State's Nick Wiggins, giving a slight indication their parents are pushing for the Seminoles, their alma mater.

"I think both my parents would like him to go to Florida State University," Nick Wiggins told SNY.tv two weeks ago. "I believe they would be happy with that decision."

Self has already signed a deep five-member recruiting class for 2013, headlined by two five-star players (via Rivals.com) in Wayne Selden and Joel Embiid. Four-star guards Conner Frankamp, Brannen Greene and Frank Mason round out the group.

With Ben McLemore's departure for the NBA, the Jayhawks will lose their entire starting five from a team that won the program's ninth-straight Big 12 regular-season title before falling to Michigan in the Sweet 16.  

As National Signing Day approaches on Wednesday, April 17, Wiggins has not announced a date for his college decision.
