Where's Wiggins stand?

Shaquille Wiggins took his first official visit this weekend and it was to UGA. He has been committed to the Dawgs for almost a year, but he will take four more visits. Where does he stand? Find out here.

"I really just hung out with the players, bonded more with them, and I had a good time at Georgia. I had been there and seen everything, so it was more about hanging out this time," Shaquille Wiggins told Scout Sunday afternoon.

Wiggins has become close friends with many of the players and the UGA commitments over the last couple of years and that bunch was together often over the weekend.

"Tray Matthews, Shaun McGee, Brice Ramsey, Jordan Davis, J.J. Green and even more commitments stayed together everywhere. We were always together, we talked a lot, we went downtown together, and it was cool.

"I also hung out with Damian Swann, Sheldon Dawson, and some of the current players too. I talked to them a good bit, asked them a few questions, and it was cool hanging around those guys."

That bond is what Wiggins likes most about being a Bulldog commitment.

"Man, we have a great bond, and I have a lot of great friends that are either going to Georgia or that already play for them.

"I love those guys and it would be hard for me to go anywhere else because of them."

Georgia still has to worry that this highly ranked cornerback could go somewhere else though.

He has had many in-home visits with coaches from other schools over the past couple of weeks and he has official visits to Florida, Ole Miss, South Carolina, and Texas A&M set up for January.

Where does Wiggins currently stand with his commitment to Mark Richt and the Dawgs?

"I am about the same as I have been," he said. "I am still committed to Georgia, but I do want to take my other visits, and make the right decision.

"I just want to go where I have a great chance to play, where I know I will be used correctly, and I just want to know I made the right decision."

The 5-foot-10, 160 pound star out of Sandy Creek feels good about what UGA is telling him.

"Coach [Todd] Grantham went over everything with me again this weekend. He showed me where I wold play (Field corner), how they would use me as their 'star' (Nickel back), and things like that.

"He has showed me all that before, but he just made sure I knew that. He wanted to make sure I knew they had a place for me, that they wanted me, and that I would be traveling with the team next year."

The only time Wiggins really had with head coach Mark Richt was Sunday morning before he left.

"We hugged, but that was about it all weekend. Coach Richt was really sick with the flu, so he was not around too much.

"I still had a good visit though."
