Cincinnati Football: Bearcats land former Louisville senior wide receiver Dee Wiggins

After suffering a season-ending foot injury in September, former Louisville and Miami receiver Dee Wiggins entered the portal last month and transferred to Cincinnati on Tuesday.

The Miami native was a 4-star prospect coming out of high school in 2018 and began his career with his hometown Hurricanes before transferring to Louisville prior to last season.

Wiggins racked up 791 receiving yards and seven touchdowns on 62 catches during his time at Miami including a 40-yard touchdown in a 52-10 win over rival Florida State in 2020.

Even though his lone season at Louisville got cut short, Wiggins showed off big play ability and will remain under Bearcats first-year head coach Scott Satterfield next year.
