CB Shaq Wiggins: From Georgia to Louisville to … he’s transferring again

Shaq Wiggins

Cornerback Shaq Wiggins is on the move again. Wiggins, who began his career at Georgia before transferring to Louisville, announced Monday — the day before Louisville opens spring practice — via Twitter that he is planning to transfer again.

The Louisville Courier-Journal reported that Wiggins has his bachelor’s degree from Louisville, which means he can play this fall as a graduate transfer.

Wiggins transferred from Georgia after his freshman season in 2013. He made eight starts that season and finished with two interceptions for the Bulldogs. After sitting out 2014, he played the past two seasons for Louisville.

He is said to strong relationship with Todd Grantham, who was the defensive coordinator when he got to Georgia. Grantham left UGa after the 2013 season, as well, for Louisville. He now is the same position at Mississippi State, leading to speculation that Wiggins is headed for Starkville. Mississippi State’s secondary played poorly last season.

While with the Cardinals, Wiggins played in 21 games. He missed much of the 2016 season with injuries and eventually was replaced in the starting lineup by Jaire Alexander.
