Kicker picks the Big Ten

One of the nation's elite kickers has made up his mind.
According to national kicking expert Chris Sailer, Grand Prairie (Texas) South Grand Prairie kicker Carson Wiggs has pledged to the Purdue Boilermakers.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder picked the Boilers on Tuesday over interest from several Big 12 and Big Ten programs.
"Carson is simply an outstanding kicker," Sailer said.
"He has great form and kicks with ease off the ground. Add huge 4.2-second kickoffs, the ability to punt, and great mental toughness to his abilities, Carson is without a doubt one of the nation's best kickers."
Wiggs, who has a 3.92-grade point average, will be one of the nation's top ranked kickers by Rivals.com when it releases the kicker rankings on Wednesday.
Wiggs kicks field goals off the ground and his kickoffs are off the 1-inch tee.
