A pair of former SEC football players who were high school teammates are headed to Louisville as a package deal.
Former UGA cornerback Shaq Wiggins and former Texas A&M wide receiver JaQuay Williams announced on Twitter that they are headed to Louisville together.
“It was the chemistry,” said Williams’ uncle, Kevin Ofchus. “The chemistry is right at Louisville. They just enjoyed the visit. They like the staff, the location and the school. It makes them happy.”
Wiggins and Williams, who played together at Sandy Creek High School, also considered transferring to Miami and West Virginia.
At Louisville, Wiggins will be reunited with former UGA defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. He’ll also play with former Bulldogs safety Josh Harvey-Clemons, who transferred after last season.
Wiggins started eight games at UGA as a freshman last season, while the little-used Williams caught four passes for 71 yards and one touchdown.
Both Wiggins and Williams will sit out the 2014 season and have three seasons of eligibility remaining.
