Southern Durham WR shows out at Nike Camp

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Among a strong group of wide receivers at the North Carolina Nike camp was a pair of teammates from Southern Durham High School, rising junior Anthony Creecy and rising senior Kendrick Wiggins. Creecy already holds two offers heading into his junior year and Wiggins holds one from ECU.

Along with his ECU offer, Wiggins lists Wake Forest and Virginia as two other schools that he is getting a lot of attention from.

"ECU writes me almost daily," Wiggins said. "Wake Forest emails me daily and Virginia they just started giving me letters and stuff and inviting me down to camp."

As his recruitment continues to pick up, Wiggins spoke about the things he will be looking for in a program.

"Location of course because I want my family to come and see me because they're trying to come every weekend to see me," he said. "Also the atmosphere of the program and really the academics because that's going to take me farther than football."

Wiggins plans to get himself some visibility by going to several camps this summer.

"I plan to go to ECU of course," he said. "I'll go to Wake Forest, Virginia, I'm trying to go to Vanderbilt and Tennessee. I'll take an offer if it comes but the main thing is to get better."

Wiggins' performance at UNC should be enough to spark some added interest as the Spring evaluation period continues.

"I think I did pretty good," he said. "I ran some good routes. I had a good strong showing in one-on-ones and got better."

What are the things that Wiggins brings to the football field?

"My focus and being aggressive," he said. "Not taking a play off, trying to play hard every play. You never know who's watching. That's what my coach always says. I try to keep going hard every time."
