Dean's List 2013 True Freshmen #3

Dean Legge counts down his top five incoming true freshmen who will impact the 2013 season.

3. Shaquille Wiggins

Shaq Wiggins' sparkling personality went a long way to hide some of his questions about the amount of defensive backs Georgia was signing in 2013. But eventually Wiggins came fully back into the Bulldogs' fold in January.

By the time the 2013 season is over Georgia fans will be very glad Wiggins didn't leave the Dawgs' tent.

Make no mistake, Wiggins is small. That's his #1 weakness. Tavarres King used to be small, too. Wiggins is long and can run like the wind – and that's very important in the secondary. He's not bad with the ball in his hands, either.

He's smaller physically than Damien Swann, but the two are in the same ball park in terms of size at which they entered the program at Georgia. Wiggins could be a clone of Swann, too, but perhaps with a little less in the ball skills department.

Wiggins' contribution to the team could come in the form of depth (or even as a starter) against Clemson's powerful offense. He will almost certainly play a fair amount of snaps on special teams, too. Expect the future to be very bright for Wiggins.
