Vols to get instant help at cornerback from graduate transfer Shaq Wiggins

The Tennessee Vols just got great news in the form of former Louisville cornerback Shaq Wiggins announcing that he is coming to Tennessee as a graduate transfer and will be available to play immediately this fall. Wiggins earned an All-ACC honorable mention in 2015, a season in which he started all 13 games and returned two interceptions for 52 yards. He also had 13 passes defended and 11 pass breakups.

Last season, Wiggins played in only eight games and started one due to injuries, and he sat out the 2014 season after transferring to Louisville from Georgia when former Bulldogs defensive coordinator Todd Grantham left for the Cardinals. Wiggins started eight games as a freshman in Athens.

A former Under Armour All-American in high school, Wiggins looks to mix things up in the secondary for the Vols this fall camp. He’ll compete with Emmanuel Moseley, Justin Martin, and the other cornerbacks on the roster for a starting spot.
