Shaq Wiggins skips UGA Jr. Day, gets offer 

January, 28, 2012
When 2013 defensive back Shaq Wiggins heard the news of his teammate Demarre Kitt getting an offer Saturday from Georgia, he knew he should have been in Athens as well.

“Demarre got an offer and they called me telling me I was so dumb for not going and that they were trying to offer me,” Wiggins said. “So I called Coach [Rodney] Garner and he said they were looking for me all day.
