"I am officially a Gator," Cody Riggs said.
Coach Vance Bedford spent the evening with Riggs and his family.
"First we were talking small talk and stuff like that and then I told him that I wanted to commit to Florida a couple of weeks ago. I told him after taking visits and speaking with other coaches that I loved everything Florida had to offer. I felt it was the best place for me to be and told him I was going to be a Gator."
As we have often heard with other prospects once they commit to the Florida Gators the head man gets the call right away.
"Coach Bedford called Coach Meyer right away and put me on the phone with him. I told Coach Meyer I was a Gator and he said welcome to the family. Coach Meyer spoke with my mother and welcomed all of us. My entire family is so excited and I can't wait."
Riggs has started the last two seasons at the nation's top high school program and has allowed only two touchdown passes over that time. This season he has more than 20 tackles, four interceptions, four blocked field goals, one blocked punt and one blocked extra point. He has in upwards of 15 pass breakups.
Riggs is a corner that likes to play press coverage. He is an aggressive player and that can hurt him at times, but he has a short term memory which you have to have at corner. His ball skills, recovery speed, ability to read the quarterback, and football smarts are four of his biggest strengths. He is a little on the smaller side, he needs to add strength, and he needs to work on his breaks, but pound for pound he is one of the top true cover corners in the country.
