Louisville lands two huge transfers
Louisville's collection of top-rated transfers from the SEC got a big boost Thursday with the addition of transfers from Texas A&M and Georgia.
Former Georgia cornerback Shaq Wiggins and former Aggie wide receiver Ja'Quay Williams committed to Louisville via tweet.
Wiggins, a 5-foot-10, 166-pound cornerback who started eight games as a true freshman at Georgia, visited Louisville with Williams earlier this week.
Wiggins finished his first season with 19 tackles and three tackles for loss. Wiggins had two interceptions, returning one for a touchdown, and broke up four passes. He was rated a four-star recruit in the 2013 class by Rivals.com.
Williams (6-3, 215) signed with Auburn in 2012 as a four-star, Rivals100 recruit. After a year at Fork Union Military Academy in Virginia, he committed to Texas A&M in the 2013 class and was rated the No. 2 prospect nationally in the prep school ranks by Rivals.com. He played as a true freshman and had four catches for 71 yards and a touchdown this season at Texas A&M, but chose to transfer at the end of the season.
Louisville is no stranger to taking talented transfers from the SEC. The Cardinals currently have four SEC transfers on campus in tight end Gerald Christian and wide receiver Robert Clark from Florida, running back Michael Dyer from Auburn and receiver Matt Milton from Tennessee.
Wiggins will join former teammate Josh Harvey-Clemons as transfers from Georgia and Williams is Louisville's first transfer from Texas A&M.
