No. 4: Shaq Wiggins

Year – 2013
Position – Defensive Back
Why he’s a bust – Transferred

Wiggins was one of the few bright spots in Georgia’s secondary during a tumultuous 2013 season, and was living up to his 4-star rating, starting eight games and coming up with two interceptions as a true freshman.

But after defensive coordinator Todd Grantham opted to leave the Bulldogs and teammate Josh Harvey-Clemons was dismissed from the program, Wiggins decided to take his talents elsewhere – namely, to Louisville, following coach Grantham. Richt and his staff had a lot of hopes invested in Wiggins, and certainly Jeremy Pruitt could have used his services.
