 Nate Wiggins, Clemson, Player News

  Clemson cornerback Nate Wiggins is declaring for the NFL draft. Tigers coach Dabo Swinney confirmed in a text message to The Associated Press on Wednesday night that the starting defensive back was heading to the next level and opting out of the team's upcoming bowl game. ESPN was first to report Wiggins' decision. Wiggins, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound junior from Atlanta, is projected as a first-round selection. Wiggins has shown that over and over again in his career. He was chosen for the all-Atlantic Coast Conference first team on Tuesday.

Wiggins was the defensive star in a 31-20 victory over North Carolina on Nov. 18 when he forced a fumble - chasing down Tar Heels tailback Omarion Hampton and stripping the ball just steps from the goal line - and had an interception on quarterback Drake Maye. When asked about catching Hampton, Wiggins responded, "I'm a fast guy." Wiggins finished his Clemson career with 60 tackles and three interceptions, two returned for touchdowns. Wiggins is Clemson's second All-ACC defender to leave for the NFL and opt out of the bowl game. Linebacker Jeremiah Trotter Jr. announced his decision to turn pro Tuesday. - AP College Football

  In a preseason typically filled with optimistic appraisals of players and their potential, how often a name receives mention holds the most weight. And the name echoing out of Clemson camp this preseason is that of sophomore cornerback Nate Wiggins. "He's the real deal," defensive tackle Bryan Bresee said. "He's a freak," receiver Will Taylor added. Clemson quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei, who has to find ways to sneak the ball past the rangy 6-foot-2, 185-pound corner, offered the highest praise: "I think he's the best cover dude, corner in college football." The buzz around Wiggins is palpable, building at just the right moment. With Andrew Booth Jr. and Mario Goodrich in the NFL, Clemson needs a corner to pair with senior Sheridan Jones. The Tigers have young talent, including freshmen Toriano Pride and Jeadyn Lukus, but potential doesn't always match production.

Wiggins himself was a prime example of that in 2021. The four-star prospect, considered a top 75 recruit in the country by 247Sports, played 130 snaps as a freshman and totaled three tackles and three pass break-ups. Booth and Goodrich averaged 571 snaps apiece, and Jones had 300. He was fourth or fifth fiddle in Clemson's cornerback room, but Wiggins' skills weren't in question. "No fly zone" Clemson coach Dabo Swinney, who smirked as he referred to Wiggins as "Nate the Great," didn't feel like his young corner was on the right track in 2021. He was missing classes and tutoring sessions. He was tardy to practices and weight-lifting sessions. In a spring exit interview, Swinney told Wiggins he wouldn't play someone who wasn't bought-in. That was a turning point. "Very immature guy last year," Swinney said. "Loves to play, incredibly talented and very competitive. But just a young guy maturing and really buying into what it takes. Because it takes what it takes. There's no shortcuts to it. "I think that was the biggest thing I saw, really buying into what it takes to not just be good but be great. He's got the ability to be great." - Charleston Post Courier
