Joe Riggins committed to Utah State on Signing day eve! He had his official visit last weeknd and decided to switch his commitment from Akron to USU. Riggins also was committed to Northern Illinois before that. But after looking around and weighing his options he decided to sign his letter of intent with Utah State.
Riggins is a physical Safety in High School and most likely will translate to a Linebacker in College. When I watch his tape the first thing that jumps out is he hits like a truck. The guy that I would compare him to is Mo Alexander.
It just felt like a place where I could live and get a degree and play football it just felt right. The atmosphere of the city and the campus was great to see on my visit.
Riggins is a 3 Star Prospect ranked #25 in Florida also the 139th ranked Safety in the Country. The Aggies beat out mostly MAC schools for his services.
