Wake entertains UNC commit

Durham (NC) Hillside safety Korrin Wiggins verbally committed to North Carolina Wednesday, Feb. 8, but enjoyed a visit to Winston-Salem for Wake Forest's Junior Day Saturday, Feb. 25.

"It was nice," Wiggins said. "I went down there just to check out the campus and see what Wake Forest had to offer. Me and my mom had a discussion and we said that since they had interest in me that it would be only right to go see what they had to offer, see what the school was like, so that's why we did that. I'm still with Carolina, but Wake, the coaches, everything was pretty cool. Wake is a great school, nice campus, everything about Wake. I like Wake. It's nice."

After arriving to Wake Wiggins and his mother were greeted by coaches at the Deacon Tower where they saw a presentation about the university, then watched a team highlight video.

Wiggins and his mother had to leave before the basketball game against Boston College, but came away impressed with Wake Forest after spending the morning with Jim Grobe and his coaching staff.

"He's a good guy, has a lot of personality, very professional about what he's doing for the program," Wiggins said. "They just talked about how I was as a player and how they liked me and I was a great person and everything like that. She liked Wake Forest. She said it was a nice school, and she liked the coaches and how passionate they were about the school and how interested they were in me, so she liked Wake Forest."

The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder added that he may make another trip to Winston-Salem.

Derrick Jackson is recruiting Wiggins for the Demon Deacons.

"He's a pretty nice guy," Wiggins said. "He has a very good personality. He was cool."

Wiggins said he may attend the Nike Combine in Charlotte later this month, and will be back in the Queens City next month for the Shrine Bowl Combine.

He notched 80 tackles, six interceptions, and two fumble recoveries to help Hillside advance to the third round of the state playoffs and finish with an 11-2 record.
