Former Louisville corner Shaq Wiggins announced on Twitter Wednesday he will join the Tennessee Volunteers for his final year of eligibility.

Wiggins chose Tennessee over his other two finalists, Mississippi State and South Carolina. His commitment comes after attending last weekend’s Orange and White Game.

Shaq Wiggins joins a secondary with plenty of talent, but one looking to replace starters Cam Sutton and Malik Foreman.

Wiggins started his career at Georgia in 2013, before following defensive coordinator Todd Grantham to Louisville. After sitting out the 2014 season, he started all 13 games for the Cardinals in 2015 while recording 30 tackles and 11 pass breakups. Wiggins started eight games last season due to nagging injuries.

He figures to earn a significant amount of playing time in Knoxville, along with fellow senior corners Emmanuel Moseley and Justin Martin.

Congratulations to Shaq and welcome to Rocky Top!
