Getting to know Cody Riggs

The commitment of Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquainas cornerback Cody Riggs was one of the most surprising of the 2010 recruiting cycle. No, not the fact that the four-star defensive back chose Florida. He had been leaning toward the Gators for some time before his announcement.

What was surprising was the fact that he committed to the Gators the evening that Billy Gonzales, the coach who had been in charge of his area, and spearheading his recruiting, left to take another job.

Riggs then later remained firmly in the Gators corner after his future position coach, Vance Bedford, left to take a job at Louisville.
