Louisville cornerback Shaq Wiggins is leaving the school. The former Georgia defender could be interested in enrolling at Mississippi State.


Not only will Louisville have to replace Josh Harvey-Clemons in the defensive backfield in 2017, but Shaq Wiggins is also leaving a void for Bobby Petrino to fill.

The senior cornerback announced via Twitter on the eve of the start of Cardinals spring practice that he is transferring from the school. Wiggins has earned his degree, thus he is expected to be eligible to play right away at his new school in 2017.

“I would like to thank the University of Louisville for allowing me to be a part of such a great university and football program, but I have decided to part ways and transfer elsewhere,” Wiggins posted in a series of tweets. “I am very thankful and blessed for all opportunities, but this decision is for me and my family.”

The former Georgia Bulldog was close with ex-Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, who left for the same position at Mississippi State. Dan Mullen’s squad could be a legitimate option for Wiggins as long as he isn’t blocked by Petrino and the Cardinals from choosing the Starkville school.

A former four-star high school recruit and Under Armour All-American, Wiggins started as a true freshman at Georgia in 2013 before transferring to Louisville once Petrino and Grantham were hired in early 2014.

Wiggins had a mostly forgettable 2016 campaign after being a starter in 2015 and earning all-ACC honorable mention. He fought through nagging injuries during last year’s 9-4 season, and Jaire Alexander took his place in the starting lineup. He played in eight games (one start), logging eight tackles.

The defender was listed on the team’s active roster for spring practice on Monday, and his status did not get mentioned in Petrino’s news conference to preview spring football because it was held before Wiggins made his announcement.
