After a couple of years away, Shaq Wiggins is back in the SEC.
The defensive back took to his Twitter account Wednesday afternoon to announce that he “will continue to finish my career at the University of Tennessee.” The move to Rocky Top comes a little over a month after he decided to transfer from Louisville.
As a graduate transfer, the defensive back will be able to play for the Vols in 2017.
I have made my decision and I will continue to finish my career at the University of Tennessee !!!!! 🍊

The transfer to UT continues Wiggins’ well-traveled collegiate career.
In early May of 2014, Georgia announced that Wiggins had decided to transfer from the Bulldogs; later that month, he followed former UGA defensive coordinator Todd Grantham to the U of L. With Grantham departing this offseason for the same job at Mississippi State, it was thought that, after a successful appeal of an initial barring, the Bulldogs would be a potential landing spot for Wiggins.
Wiggins started at corner for the Cardinals in 2015, earning honorable mention All-ACC honors. Injuries plagued him throughout the 2016 season.
