The 5-foot-11, 181-pound safety held offers from several Ivy League schools, most notably Dartmouth, Princeton and Yale. Rigby ultimately chose Harvard over Georgia Tech, Yale and Princeton, per his family.

There was speculation that Rigby committed to Georgia Tech last June, but he wasn’t ready at the time to make a college decision. 

Rigby becomes the second Tucker product to play for Harvard in the last few years. Former Tucker standout Norman Hayes, a cornerback while with the Crimson, served as the team’s captain in 2014-15.

Rigby, who’s ranked as the No. 88 safety in the country, is being primarily recruited at safety, although Rigby did receive offers to play quarterback.

His family says he chose Harvard for both academics and athletics. Rigby will pursue a degree in mechanical engineering.
