    One of the big additions of the offseason for Tennessee might be having second thoughts.

    Cornerback Shaq Wiggins, a graduate transfer from Louisville, committed to Tennessee in late April, but now he’s taking a visit to Mississippi State, according to reports.

    Wiggins, who will be eligible immediately, is looking for a new home following stints with both the Louisville and Georgia. The Tyrone, Ga., native had an injury-plagued 2016 season where he appeared in just eight games, but was an honorable mention All-ACC player in 2015 for Louisville after recording 30 tackles, 11 PBUs and a pair of interceptions in 13 games for the Cardinals.

    The former four-star and top-200 recruit had a big impact for Georgia in 2013 as well after he started eight games as a freshman in 2013 with 17 tackles, four PBUs and two touchdowns that season. He had one of his most productive games against Tennessee that season, recording a season-high six stops against the Vols in 2013.

    Wiggins (5-10, 175) chose the Vols over several other SEC opportunities including Mississippi State and South Carolina this year, but is now giving MSU, which has his former defensive coordinator Todd Grantham on staff, a longer look.

    Tennessee begins summer school in early June, meaning Wiggins will likely need to make a final decision before then.
