Bobby Petrino can never have enough quarterbacks. He just landed another one. Former Washington State quarterback Tyler Bruggman has told Insidetheville.com that he plans to transfer to Louisville. The redshirt freshman was a 4-star player in high school.
When Bruggman decided to leave Washington State, he was granted his release to Louisville, Arkansas, Duke, and Indiana. Of those four schools, Louisville was the one school that did not offer him a scholarship out of high school. But that didn’t seem to matter here, as it sounds like it wasn’t even a close race to land him.
Elite SEC transfers CB Shaq Wiggins and WR JaQuay Williams are officially headed to Louisville. Both will have to sit out this year and will have 3 years of eligibility remaining.
Wiggins and Williams join UGA LB/S transfer Josh Harvey-Clemons and Penn St. QB Transfer Tyler Ferguson as guys that will sit this season out and be eligible in 2015. Defensive Coordinator Tood Grantham couldn’t be happier:
If you didn’t already know, Louisville has been hosting a couple of SEC transfers in the last couple of days. Shaq Wiggins from the University of Georgia and JaQuay Williams from Texas A&M were teammates in high school, and both could end up at UofL. On Wednesday night, Williams tweeted this picture out.
Looks good to me!
According to this report from Jeremy Fowler of cbssports.com, both Shaq Wiggins and JaQuay Williams are visiting Louisville tonight. Wiggins is the defensive back that is transferring from Georgia. We told you about him a week ago when we said it looked like he would end up at Louisville. A visit certainly helps that.
Also with Wiggins, JaQuay Williams will be in town. Williams is the wide receiver transfer from Texas A&M that we also told you about last week.
If Bobby Petrino can get both of these guys to transfer to Louisville, those are two big time additions for the 2015 season. Remember the Cards already have Josh Harvey-Clemons transferring in from Georgia.
Wide receiver JaQuay Williams is transferring from Texas A&M after one season at the school, and Louisville could potentially be a landing spot for him. He is listed at 6’3 and 214 lbs from Tyrone, Georgia.
According to this article by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, his uncle said “It was the distance, and standard things that college kids go through. Things just didn’t work out, and that happens sometimes. It’s no big deal. There’s no issues or anything like that. He left Texas A&M on good terms and he’s looking forward to moving ahead. He’s just looking for a place to fit in.”
