Korrin Wiggins has decided to transfer to ECU

Just days after releasing a top-four of Michigan, Oregon, ECU and Maryland, Korrin Wiggins has decided where he'll play his final year of college football.

Wiggins told TigerNet Thursday night that after much deliberation, he will play for head coach Scottie Montgomery at East Carolina.

"Me and my family discussed my decision and decided that it's time for me to come home," Wiggins told TigerNet." I'm going to ECU to play my last year. It was hard to turn down those other schools, but the vision coach Mo has there is something I liked so I'm done with the process. I'm going to ECU."

He has one final year of eligibility remaining because of a redshirt season he took in 2015 after sustaining an ACL tear in the preseason. He graduated from Clemson in May, which allows him to transfer anywhere so long as the team is not South Carolina or any other team on Clemson's schedule in 2017.

Wiggins tallied 13 tackles in 194 snaps in 2016, during which he played in seven games but only started one. He had an interception in this year's spring game and leaves Clemson with 67 career tackles, four tackles for loss and four interceptions.
