Wiggins Shows His Wares at Camp

Kendrick "Reese" Wiggins attended North Carolina's One-Day Camp over the weekend in hopes of landing a scholarship offer from one of the schools he's most interested in.

"Everything went pretty well," Wiggins said. "I read pretty good routes, I caught the ball really well, did really well in one-on-ones, and the coaches said they liked me."

Wiggins, a 5-foot-10, 176-pound wide receiver from Durham (N.C.) Southern, only participated in Friday's night session working out exclusively as a wide receiver under the coaching of Everett Withers.

"It was really fun," Wiggins said. "He wasn't like normal coaches up and yelling and stuff. He's pretty calm about everything. It seemed like he knew what he was talking about. I really liked the routes we were running, because there were some double moves."

Following Friday's camp session, Wiggins briefly spoke with Kenny Browning, his primary recruiter.

"He was telling me the things Carolina had to offer, it's a great place to play, and it's a good environment," Wiggins said.

Before leaving campus Friday night, Wiggins met with Butch Davis.

"He told me that I looked really good out there and he's looking forward to coming to one of my games and seeing me play," Wiggins said. "He mentioned something about he wants to see me play cornerback a little bit. But I didn't get a chance to do that."

Wiggins has no game experience at cornerback. He has exclusively playing wide receiver for Southern during his high school career.

"I would prefer [receiver], but if I had to play corner I'll do it," Wiggins said.

As a junior, Wiggins caught 24 passes for 491 yards and four touchdowns. He also returned a kick-off 98 yards for a score.

One of Wiggins' best assets is his speed. At the Shrine Bowl Combine held in Apex, N.C. he posted a blazing 4.38-second 40-yard dash. He also ran a 4.1-second 20-yard shuttle.

After camping at UNC on Friday night, Wiggins headed over to Duke on Saturday and participated in the Blue Devils' camp. He has also camped at Wake Forest.

East Carolina is the only school to extended Wiggins a scholarship offer thus far. He said he would like to have more offers on the table before really attacking his recruitment.

"Right now, I don't have a favorite or plan on making a decision," Wiggins said. "I'm just letting it all play out and hoping for the best. I'm hopping I get more [offers]."

If UNC would offer, Wiggins said "it would put them up in the top."

"I'm really interested in UNC," Wiggins added. "I like the educational part of it. It's close to home. And they always produce successful athletes."
