Wiggins has been committed to the Tar Heels since February. Clemson offered on the first day of March.

"They're in my top three. It's between them, UNC and Ohio State," Wiggins told CUTigers on Monday, after the first Shrine Bowl practice at Spartanburg High School.

Offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell and former defensive backs coach Charlie Harbison travelled to Durham's Hillside High School earlier this month to see Wiggins play basketball.

Harbison has since moved on to the same position at Auburn.

"That puts a big impact on what I was going to do, too," Wiggins said, "Because coach Cheese, he had a big impact on my decision. He was a great guy, a great coach, my parents loved him. I liked him.

So it depends on who they've got coming in and what kind of relationship we have, if I'm going to still keep considering them. I like coach [Dabo] Swinney and what Clemson has to offer."

What else stands out about Clemson?

"I've been up there twice. The first time I went, it was just like home. It was a home away from home, so to speak. The coaches and atmosphere at the school feel like it fits me. I feel like I could fit there."

"They always stayed in contact with me, and stayed on me. They wanted me," Wiggins said.

An official visit to Clemson is schedule for the Jan. 11. North Carolina will have him in for an official the following weekend.

"So when they get the coach in, [who] the coach is going to really decided if I really go or not," Wiggins said of his official visit to Clemson.

"I'm still debating," he added. "But I like Clemson. I always liked it, so I'm probably going to take it."

Ohio State hosted Wiggins for an official visit the weekend of the Michigan game.

As a senior, he had over 90 tackles, seven interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown, and three forced fumbles.

As a junior, Wiggins had 80 tackles, seven interceptions and scored a touchdown. Earlier this year, he was picked to play in the Shrine Bowl, and he certainly is enjoying the experience.

"It's fun representing the state, but it's really not about us. It's about the kids in the hospital," he said. "It's just some great players coming together for a great cause. It can't get any better than that." Top Stories
