HOUSTON -- Injuries haven't been kind to safety Jonathan Wiggins (Houston/Alief Taylor).
He missed significant time in 2011 with a foot injury and missed spring football with a high ankle sprain. But the 6-foot-2, 195-pound Wiggins has been working this summer to prepare for the fall grind.
"I've just been working on getting back to 100 percent," Wiggins said after a recent practice with his team. "Just bonding with my team and getting all that team chemistry back."
Wiggins, a Texas A&M commitment, said he is feeling good, and isn't concerned about his health going into the fall. He also isn't concerned with other colleges' interest in him, as he remains a solid commitment to the Aggies.
He did, however, recently receive a written offer.
"Utah sent me a scholarship letter," Wiggins said. "But I haven't talked to them in awhile."
Does that affect his thoughts moving forward?
"No," he said. "I'm 100 percent A&M."
Wiggins said he keeps in regular contact with Texas A&M secondary coach Marcel Yates and running backs coach and recruiting coordinator Clarence McKinney. And the reasons he likes A&M haven't changed, either.
"It's close to home," he said. "They have a new, good coaching staff and they're going to the SEC."
Playing on an Alief Taylor team loaded with college prospects and carrying high expectations, Wiggins knows the Lions must have a strong focus on the season.
"Because of that there are a lot of targets on our back and everything," he said. "It makes us have to work harder."
