Depth Chart Overview
Wiggins was the No. 76 player in the nation coming out of high school according to the 247Sports Composite, and he committed to LSU on early signing day in December 2021.
He appeared in five games, but the bulk of his action came against Purdue in the bowl game when he recorded four of his five tackles.
In 2023, he’ll likely compete for a role at defensive end alongside Sai’Vion Jones and Arizona transfer Paris Shand.
