Just one day before getting set to start their spring camp, we’ve learned that the Louisville Cardinal football team has lost one of their more experienced defensive backs.

On Monday afternoon cornerback Shaq Wiggins announced via his Twitter account that he’ll transfer from Louisville and finish his career elsewhere.

Wiggins played two seasons for Louisville after transferring from Georgia after his freshman season. The Georgia native was a full time starter in his first season with the Cards in 2015. Wiggins tallied 30 tackles, led the team with 11 pass break-ups and was named All ACC Honorable Mention. During the 2016 season Wiggins had a much smaller role due to nagging injuries. He played in a total of eight games and started just one.

Wiggins has graduated from UofL and earned his bachelors degree, which means he’ll be able to transfer to another school and play right away. Considering Wiggins followed Todd Grantham from Louisville to Georgia, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him once again reunite with Grantham who is now at Mississippi State.
