Look who’s footloose and fancy free again.
Louisville senior cornerback Shaq Wiggins announced on Twitter Monday afternoon that he is transferring from the Cardinals, who begin spring practice on Tuesday.
Wiggins has earned his bachelor’s degree and presumably will be eligible to play right away at a new school next season.
“I would like to thank the University of Louisville for allowing me to be apart of such a great University and football program, but I have decided to part ways and transfer else where. I am very thankful and blessed for all opportunities but this decision is for me and my family,” Wiggins posted in a series of tweets.
So where might the grass be greener for Mr. Wiggins?
A former transfer from the University of Georgia, Wiggins was close with former U of L defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, who left for the same position at Mississippi State. It wouldn’t be a surprise if the Bulldogs become an option for him now if they have a scholarship available.
No, it wouldn’t. We all know Grantham loves experienced DBs and Wiggins would sure fit the bill in that department. If it happens, Mississippi State’s trip to Athens gets a little more interesting than it already is.
