Georgia recruit Shaq Wiggins still has recruiting trips set up to South Carolina and Florida among other schools, despite insisting that he's "100 percent" committed to Mark Richt and the Bulldogs (via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution):

"Yes, I'm still committed to Georgia but I'm looking at other opportunities," Wiggins told the AJC. "This is a real hard decision for me. It has become real hard for me right now. I really don't know who to believe. I'm just going through the process slowly."

Wiggins has been committed to Georgia for nearly a year, but that has not stopped other schools from going hard after the talented cornerback. Along with South Carolina and Florida, the 5'9, 160-pound Wiggins is also scheduled to take official visits to Ole Miss and Texas A&M. The Gamecocks are expected to be the Bulldogs' biggest competition for Wiggins' services.

Wiggins met with Bulldogs defensive coordinator Todd Grantham when he visited Georgia last week. Grantham said there are three other cornerbacks committed in the 2013 recruiting class, but Wiggins claims that will have little to do with his final decision.

Wiggins is a four-star prospect according to the ESPN and Scout recruiting services. He is 34th in the ESPN 150 for 2013.
