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. After making 35 tackles, nine interceptions and 10 pass break ups last year, Wiggins picked up offers from 10 schools, but he still did not see No. 11 coming.

“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. I know they all came by the school this week and told my coaches they wanted to offer me this weekend, but I did not think they were being serious. I guess they were sticking to their word, so Garner was ribbing me pretty good for not going. Then I spoke to Coach [Scott] Lakatos and he said they wanted to offer me today at the school.”

Wiggins was caught off guard by the news.
