Johnnie Harris has landed her first commitment as a head coach, a transfer guard from a familiar place in Harris’ coaching career.
Xaria Wiggins announced that she was transferring to Auburn from Mississippi State on Friday via a post on her Twitter.
Wiggins will reunite with Harris, who was an associate coach at Mississippi State from 2012-2020.
Hailing from Virginia Beach, Virginia, Wiggins was ranked as the No. 54 high school prospect in her class by ESPN.
In the summer of 2019, Wiggins was a part of the USA Team that won a silver medal at the World University Games. She scored in double figures in five out of the seven contests in the event, ranking third on the team in scoring.
