CB Shaq Wiggins announced he is transfer from the Georgia Bulldogs three days ago, now his father tell The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Monday night that Louisville is the leader for his son. Wiggins played under Louisville’s new defensive coordinator Todd Grantham last year at Georgia.
“You have to consider them,” Al Wiggins, told AJC writer Chip Towers.“Coach Grantham is there and that’s where Josh Harvey-Clemons is at. You know, they played on the same side (of the secondary). So that’s definitely something Shaquille and I feel comfortable with. But we haven’t really made a firm decision yet. We’ve still got to put everything on the table.”
Shaq Wiggins started eight games last season as a freshman. He had 18 tackles, four pass breakups and two interceptions, including a 39 yard pick for a touchdown against Vandy.
The 5’10″ corner from Tyrone, Georgia was considered the 13th-best CB in the 2013 class by 247Sports.com when he committed to the Bulldogs over Texas A&M, South Carolina, Auburn, Florida and several other top D-I schools. Louisville had also offered him.
Wiggins would have to sit out the 2014 season, but would be a fantastic addition to Louisville’s secondary for 2015.
