Vols DB coach: Shaq Wiggins still adjusting to Tennessee culture
Following a winding career which featured stops at both Georgia and Louisville, graduate transfer cornerback Shaq Wiggins is still trying to learn the ropes at Tennessee.
Tennessee’s DB coach Charlton Warren was recently asked about Wiggins’ progress during his first, and only, camp in Knoxville. Warren said he likes what he sees, but Wiggins is still learning about the Volunteers’ style.
“I’ve seen a guy that’s older…a guy that’s ahead of the curve with fundamentals and technique,” said Warren. “But I think that with any transition, he’s like a rookie coming into learning the style of play here at Tennessee. I think he is adjusting to our culture here.”
Nevertheless, Warren appreciates Wiggins’ experience moving forward.
“You have a resource and a guy that’s seen live bullets,” explained Warren. “Unlike that being a freshman who’s trying to learn your culture, you have an older, more seasoned guy trying to learn your culture.”
Wiggins has appeared in parts of three seasons with Georgia and Louisville. He has 57 tackles and four interceptions in his career.
