"I think, at least, for a day it made him think,'' Fulford said.
The Division I basketball signing periods runs from April 17 to May 15.
For now, Wiggins is preparing to play in the McDonald's All-American game on April 3 in Chicago. What might play a part in his decision is that five players in that game have verbally committed to Kentucky, two to North Carolina and one to Kansas.
"I don't think he's in any rush,'' Fulford said. "He'll play it out and continue to think it over, communicate with his parents, and figure out what the best fit for him is.''
The city of Huntington produced basketball Hall of Famer Hal Greer in the early 1950s and has revived itself lately as a hotbed of talent. The Dallas Mavericks' O.J. Mayo and the Sacramento Kings' Patrick Patterson were teammates at state champion Huntington High in 2007.
Fulford founded Huntington Prep in 2009. His teams have produced college-bound talent such as Gorgui Dieng (Louisville), Javontae Hawkins (South Florida), and Stefan Jankovic and Negus Webster-Chan (Missouri).
Fulford didn't have to go anywhere to get his first look at Wiggins. As an eighth grader, Wiggins played on an opposing high school team that had come to play Huntington Prep in January 2010.
And so Fulford's pursuit began.
After about two dozen trips to watch Wiggins play AAU basketball, the player being labeled as "The Great Canadian Hope'' headed south in fall 2011. Ontario natives Jankovic and Webster-Chan were on Huntington Prep's roster, and Wiggins credited their presence for making his transition easier.
"Once it was time for him to make a decision on which high school he was going to come in the United States and go to, he was comfortable with us,'' Fulford said. "We outworked everyone else, to be quite honest. I think it was an easy decision for him. It's worked out great for both.''
Initially rated as a prospect for 2014, Wiggins decided in October to reclassify into his original high school class of 2013, joining the likes of Jabari Parker of Chicago Simeon Academy, the Morgan Wootten Player of the Year winner, in this year's senior class.
