The high school teammates are both former four-star recruits according to Rivals and are transferring after their freshman seasons.
Wiggins started eight games last year for Georgia but decided to transfer after reportedly being concerned with potential playing time in 2014 after spending part of spring practice with Georgia's third-team defense. He had 19 tackles and two interceptions in 2013.
At Louisville, he'll be reunited with former Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, who left to join Bobby Petrino's staff with the Cardinals. He'll also be joining former Georgia teammate Josh Harvey-Clemons. Harvey-Clemons transferred to Louisville after he was dismissed from Georgia in February after multiple violations of team rules.
Louisville will be the third school Williams has pledged his future to. In 2012, he committed to Auburn but spent the season at a military school. After 2012, he committed to Texas A&M, where he had four catches last season.
The two players join four SEC transfers on Louisville's roster, including former Auburn RB Michael Dyer.
