Louisville Football: Former Georgia DB Shaq Wiggins visiting Cardinals Tuesday night

It came as a bit of a surprise a few weeks ago when Georgia sophomore defensive back Shaq Wiggins announced that he would be transferring from the program after starting more than half of the games in 2013 as a freshman. There was really no specific reason given for the move other than Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt saying that Wiggins just wanted a “fresh start.”

Whatever the case really is, Wiggins is in search of a new home and on Tuesday night, according to Jeremy Fowler of CBS, he’s visiting with Bobby Petrino and the Louisville Cardinals.

It’s very likely that Wiggins will end up with the Cardinals when all is said and done, and that has to do with the presence of former Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham at Louisville now. That effect has already been felt as former troubled Bulldogs safety, Josh Harvey-Clemons, announced last month that he would be transferring to the Cardinals, so Wiggins shouldn’t be that far behind.

Also in the report from Fowler, former Texas A&M wide receiver Jaquay Williams is also visiting Louisville Tuesday night as a possible transfer destination. Last season, Williams amassed 71 receiving yards on four catches with one touchdown.

Petrino is trying his best to keep Louisville near the top and he seems to love going the transfer route to make sure that the program continues to prosper under his watch.
