One of LSU football‘s top 2022 signees received a massive compliment this past week at the All-American Bowl.

Four-star defensive end Quency Wiggins participated in the All-American Bowl last week and impressed folks with his elite size.

Rivals national recruiting director Adam Gorney handed out his “Gorney Awards” on Sunday and he gave the “Adonis Award”, which goes to the “best looking prospect”, to Wiggins.

Here’s what Gorney had to say about Wiggins:

"He’s all of 6-foot-6 and 273 pounds and looks like he could be a superstar defensive end over the next few years. We’ve seen a lot of great-looking defensive ends over the years who turned out to be first-rounders and many of them looked just like Wiggins."

Wiggins was actually hit by a car last week while he was driving an electric scooter. But he’s a physical specimen, so he ended up being just fine (not sure about the car that hit him, though).

Quency Wiggins should be a star for LSU football

The most important position in college football is quarterback. It makes sense that the second most important position is a pass rusher (at least in my opinion).

Being able to get after the quarterback is a key ingredient to winning games in the SEC.

And Wiggins, a former high-level basketball player, is the type of player that can consistently get to the quarterback.

The Baton Rouge native is ranked in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 15 defensive lineman in the country and the No. 7 player in Louisiana. He’s also ranked as the No. 92 overall player in the 2022 recruiting class.

247Sports midlands region recruiting analyst Gabe Brooks projects Wiggins as a second or third-round pick in the NFL Draft.

According to Brooks, Wiggins “may very well be one of the highest-ceiling 2022 prospects in the entire country”.

It sounds like the Tigers have another elite defensive player on their hands.
