Louisville Football: Shaq Wiggins Announces He Will Transfer

Shaq Wiggins just can’t seem to find somewhere worth calling home.

For the second time in his amateur career, Wiggins will transfer to another school in search of greener pastures and more playing time.

His winding college career started as a Bulldog at Georgia, where he announced that his intent to transfer to another school following the 2013 season, his Freshman year. Then, after sitting out a year due to the requirements set by the NCAA for students transferring from one school to another, he finally saw the field in 2015 and 2016.

Unfortunately, he battled injuries and was never able to fully establish himself. He appeared in only six games in 2016.

Wiggins announced his decision on social media.

He will now look for a fresh start elsewhere, though it’s not yet known exactly where. Because he has received his degree and is transferring as a graduate student, he will not be subject to the transfer rules that once made him sit out a year; he will be able to play immediately.

If he can return to the form he had in the 2015 season, and hopefully improve upon it, Wiggins might be able to make the case for himself as a viable NFL player.
