Transfer Update: Shivaughn Wiggins Ends Up at Coastal Carolina

USA TODAY Sports

The last couple of days have been quite a whirlwind in terms of Coastal Carolina commitments. They lost a big man, only to gain a potential combo guard to lead the team in 2014.

Coastal Carolina had an open scholarship for less than 24 hours. The Chanticleers had seemed like the destination for Illinois-transfer Ibby Djimde, given a number of reports in the national media.

But Djimde decided to go in another direction and head back to Illinois, just a few miles south. The front-court player will now be looking to man the inside for Southern Illinois in late 2014.

Stepping right in to take his place on the Coastal Carolina roster though is Shivaughn Wiggins, the Northeast Newcomer of the Year who unexpectedly left Mount St. Mary's a couple of weeks ago.

Wiggins will fill a big deficiency for the Chanticleers when he is eligible for the 2014-15 season. The graduation of Kierre Greenwood after this past season left the roster with no player who had a assist-to-turnover ratio greater than 1.0.

The team managed to plug the hole with the addition of graduate student Eric Smith, who is transferring in from South Carolina. But he is really a short term fix with a roster that remains very young, and lacking a real impact player.

Wiggins will be eligible just as all those players are set to become upperclassmen, and that could be the spark that takes Coastal Carolina to the top of the Big South.
