Wiggins, part of UNC’s No. 2-ranked freshman class, reportedly in transfer portal

By R.L. Bynum

Carolina’s Morasha Wiggins, who played only 181 minutes in 21 games during her freshman season, has reportedly entered the transfer portal.

The news was first reported Thursday by Em Adler of The Next, then by WBB Blog publisher Raoul. Adler reported that Wiggins’ finalists are Michigan State, Ohio State, DePaul, Georgia Tech, USC, Kentucky and Oklahoma.

Wiggins, a 6–0 guard from Kalamazoo, Mich., was the third-highest ranked player in UNC’s four-player, No. 2-ranked Class of 2021 at No. 18, behind No. 9 forward Teonni Key and No. 17 guard Kayla McPherson.

Key and McPherson each missed the entire season with torn right ACLs. The fourth member of UNC’s class, No. 20-ranked forward Destiny Adams, steadily got more playing time as the season wore on.

Wiggins, who scored 32 points and pulled down 30 rebounds on the season, played more than seven minutes only three times during the ACC season. Her season-best game was a 10-point, four rebound effort in the Nov. 17 win over Appalachian State. She didn’t play in any postseason games.

Adams played 232 minutes in 28 games, getting double-digit minutes in nine ACC games and collecting 85 points and 72 rebounds for the season.

Should Wiggins transfer, that would give Carolina two open scholarships after the NCAA denied Carlie Littlefield’s appeal for another season of eligibility.
