Notre Dame Football Recruiting: Cody Riggs To Visit Notre Dame Tomorrow

Notre Dame Football Recruiting

Former Florida Defensive Back Cody Riggs announced 4 days ago that he would transfer from Florida to further his academic career.

Riggs told SI.com that he wanted to search for a graduate school where he could earn his MBA or master’s in science in business.

This is where Notre Dame comes in. The Irish have one scholarship remaining and they have a one-year MBA program that Riggs could enroll in.

Tomorrow, Cody Riggs will visit South Bend. 

This will not be Riggs’ first trip to South Bend. He originally visited South Bend in 2009 when he was a undecided high school Senior and Notre Dame was one of four finalists. The other finalists were Florida, Georgia and Tennessee. Riggs hails from St. Thomas Aquinas High School.

Riggs started 26 games at Florida in his first three season at Cornerback and Safety. He would immediately compete for starting time at Notre Dame if he choose the Irish.

Notre Dame should be considered the early favorite for Riggs. He will join any team he chooses in May.
