Wigley plans to join Colorado's secondary

Junior College additions on the defensive side of the ball helped Colorado build the talent and depth necessary to win a Pac-12 South Division title, with Jordan Carrell, Ahkello Witherspoon, Afolabi Laguda and Leo Jackson all arriving in Boulder via that route. Holmes Community College defensive back Dante Wigley announced his commitment to the Buffaloes on Thursday hoping for similar positive results in the future.

Dante Wigley, a three-star cornerback prospect, began his college career by signing with Georgia Tech. After a redshirt year with the Yellow Jackets, Wigley transferred to Holmes C.C. and excelled there as a redshirt freshman this fall.

Wigley received offers from 10 FBS programs, and in the end it came down to Colorado and Mississippi State. Wigley took an official visit to both programs, as well as Cincinnati and Western Kentucky, before choosing the Buffs.


Because the 6-foot-1, 185-pound Wigley is going to be a mid-year transfer to Colorado, he can make his commitment official by signing a letter of intent on December 14. Wigley will battle for one of the vacated starting cornerback spots with Witherspoon and Chidobe Awuzie set to graduate.

Wigley will have three years to play three for the Buffaloes.
