Louisville Football lost WR Jordan Watkins to the transfer portal. However, they appear to have filled the void left by him with WR Dee Wiggins.
Wiggins played for Miami from 2018-2021 and had two years that were decent in terms of production. In 2019, he had 20 receptions for 335 yards and 4 TDs. He averaged 16.8 yards per catch. In 2020, he caught 31 passes for 358 yards and 3 TDs. He averaged 11.5 yards per catch that season. Wiggins found his production dip in 2021 with only 4 receptions for 25 yards.
The 6’3 195 lbs product of Miami Southridge High School was a 3 Star prospect out coming out of high school. He was a top 500 player nationally per 247sports and chose Miami over Alabama, Florida, and Georgia, among others. Former UofL wide receiver coach Ron Dugans recruited Wiggins to Miami.
UofL is likely to try to utilize Wiggins as an outside receiver and a guy they try to get one-on-one matchups to utilize his size and athleticism to make big time catches. He’s got excellent speed and Miami liked to utilize him as a deep threat over the middle. UofL’s passing offense likes the deep ball over the middle and Wiggins should be a guy they look to use running the deep post.
It’s a good pickup for Louisville’s offense. Under the tutelage of Gunter Brewer, I expect Dee Wiggins to become the deep threat that Jordan Watkins had shown himself to be.
