With a slew of Junior Days scheduled by programs across the country, this weekend figures to be a pretty busy one on the recruiting trail. Tyrone (Ga.) cornerback Shaquille Wiggins decided to start things off early however, committing to Georgia on Friday afternoon.

“It felt right; it’s the place for me,” Wiggins told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The 5-foot-10, 160-pound defensive back is one of the Peach state's top 10 prospects for the class of 2013 and has shown he can cover receivers of any size on the field. Though he needs to add weight, he showed a lot of toughness at the Rising Seniors Bowl late last year when he battled injuries to be one of the game's top defenders.

Wiggins held offers from schools such as Tennessee, Michigan, Ole Miss and others. He is the fourth class of 2013 commitment for Georgia and joins Newnan (Ga.) safety Tray Matthews in the secondary.

"It's a little bit of everything," Wiggins told CBSSports.com about what he was looking for in a program. "The school itself, the education, the environment - I want to be surrounded by good people. Just things like that. Coaches, players and the team overall too."
