Scouting Cody Riggs

Cody Riggs

The nation's No. 7 ranked cornerback prospect in America has plenty of options but is down to four. The 5-9.5, 170-pound Cody Riggs from Fort Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas has narrowed his college choices to Florida, Georgia, Notre Dame and Tennessee.

Cody Riggs will be making his official visit to the University of Florida this weekend when the Gators host the Florida State Seminoles in what could Bobby Bowden's last trip to The Swamp.

Riggs has had an up and down year at times but has great cover skills, good speed and the attitude you want from the corner back position.

He has the Gators at the top of his list and this weekend will determine if he is indeed part of the 2010 Florida recruiting class. There will be a lot of "big fish" in Gainesville this weekend and they are coming from far away. Players from California, Oregon, Maryland and Michigan will be here this weekend and a guy like Riggs could easily get lost in the shuffle. I still believe that either Tennessee or Georgia could make for a better fit for Riggs and ultimately see him at one of those schools. However, if Riggs "feels" the love this weekend then he will be a Gator and it could be over this weekend.

Scout.com Take Chad Simmons:
Cody Riggs has good ball skills and he really understands the corner position, but he is going to have to work on his strength and ball recognition on the next level. His height is what it is and it could hinder him a little against bigger wide outs, but that is another reason why he needs to add strength. He should be a solid cover corner in college.
