The Big Flipper

In January, Clemson snatched two commitments away from N.C. State.

Korrin Wiggins is a three-star addition to the secondary for Clemson.

Now, the Tigers have gotten another flip, but this time from North Carolina.

Korrin Wiggins, a three-star safety from Durham (N.C.) Hillside, announced on Wednesday morning that he has de-committed from the Tar Heels and signed with Clemson.

The move was a significant blow to North Carolina, as Wiggins had been committed to the Tar Heels since last April.

For Clemson, landing the 6-feet-1, 190-pound Wiggins is a major score.

He's a player the Tigers had coveted for some time. The feeling inside the Clemson program was that if it could get Wiggins on campus for an official visit, the Tigers could have a real chance of landing him. He took that official to Clemson on Jan. 11, then made it to North Carolina the following weekend.

Down the homestretch, Wiggins did few interviews, so information about him was difficult to gain.

That said, Wednesday's move isn't a huge surprise. Had he been 100% to North Carolina, he probably wouldn't have made the Clemson official so late. Also, he recently had an in-home visit with the Tigers.

Clemson assistant Robbie Caldwell was Wiggins' primary recruiter for Clemson.

Ohio State also was involved in Wiggins' recruitment. But as of Tuesday, it was still uncertain if he was a "take" or not for the Buckeyes.
