TYRONE, Ga. -- Ordinarily, a 5-foot-10, 160-pound cornerback wouldn't receive much attention from secondary coaches like Georgia's Scott Lakatos. With SEC receivers getting bigger every year, it's an arms race just to keep up. But in the case of the Bulldogs' newest commitment, size isn't everything.

Shaq Wiggins (Tyrone, Ga./Sandy Creek) might be slight, but his game is huge. A ball hawk with nine interceptions as a junior, Wiggins plays much bigger than his medium-sized jersey.

"He ain't as big as a minute," Sandy Creek defensive backs coach David Cooper said. "But if you get in a room with him and try to put your hands on him -- in a 10 by 10 room -- you may not ever touch him. You may just come with air all the time. That's his thing: He is as quick as a cat."
