U of L football add two SEC transfers

The University of Louisville football staff scored a major coup on Thursday morning, landing a pair of high-profile transfers who are coming from the Southeastern Conference. Former Georgia cornerback Shaq Wiggins and ex-Texas A&M wide receiver Ja'Quay Williams are transferring.

The University of Louisville football program has added two more high-profile transfers.

Former Georgia cornerback Shaq Wiggins and ex-Texas A&M wide receiver Ja'Quay Williams - teammates in high school at Sandy Creek, Ga., - are both transferring to U of L.

Cardinal Authority confirmed the news through two sources, while Wiggins then confirmed the news on his Twitter account. The players visited on Tuesday and informed the coaches today.

Both players - under NCAA transfer rules - will sit out the 2014 season. Each is expected to have three years of eligibility.

The 5-foot-10, 165-pound Wiggins started eight games as a freshman at Georgia. He recorded 19 tackles, two interceptions and four pass breakups before leaving the Bulldogs program.

He was an Under Armour All-American at Sandy Creek and ranked the No. 150 prospect in the country by Scout.com. He was ranked as the No. 15 cornerback in the country.

The 6-3, 215-pound Williams had four catches for 71 yards and a TD as a freshman at Texas A&M. He was originally committed to Auburn out of high school but spent one season at Fort Union, Va., Military Academy. He was ranked as the No 16 wide receiver in the Class of 2012 by Scout.com.

Wiggins played last season at Georgia under new U of L defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. The Cardinals will also have former Georgia safety Josh Harvey-Clemons sitting out this season after he transferred in April.
