Wolverines early leader for Wiggins

The good news for 2013 cornerback Shaquille Wiggins of Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek is that he has five interceptions in four games (including three in one outing). The bad news is that because of his hot start this season he's beginning to get a lot less action.
"This game [last Friday] I was looking forward to them throwing to me a lot, but obviously they didn't," Wiggins said. "I guess teams are going to stop throwing at me now."
The 5-foot-10, 160-pound Wiggins not only is getting attention from opposing teams, he's getting it from college programs.
To date, he claims seven offers. Cincinnati was the first to pull the trigger.
"Tennessee offered [Thursday] night," Wiggins said. "Florida is very close to offering."
According to Wiggins, in addition to those who have offered he also is hearing from schools such as LSU, Nebraska, Oregon and Wisconsin.
"I'd probably say Michigan is my leader," Wiggins said. "I like their style of play and they're on the rise with a good 2012 class. They play pretty good defense and they need corners, so I'm liking Michigan. I talk to [secondary coach Curt] Mallory on Facebook."
Wiggins said he plans to attend Michigan's home finale against Ohio State on Nov. 26.
Asked what his strengths are, Wiggins replied, "I'd probably say my technique and my hips sticking on receivers."
That said, he admits he needs to work on his power and build.
"Matter of fact, after this football season, that's going to be some of the main things I focus on," Wiggins said.
