Shaq Wiggins' graduate transfer isn't as easy as he thought it would be.

The former Louisville cornerback told Edward Aschoff of ESPN the Cardinals are blocking him from transferring to Kentucky, Mississippi State, Purdue, Notre Dame, and Western Kentucky.

Purdue and Kentucky are on Louisville's schedule next year, but the other three aren't. Former Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Grantham left to join Mississippi State earlier in the offseason, which could be a reason head coach Bobby Petrino doesn't want Wiggins to end up at MSU.

"When (Petrino) said Mississippi State, I was like, it had to be deeper than what it seems to be because Louisville doesn't play Mississippi State," Wiggins said. "It just so happened to be Mississippi State on there, once Coach Grantham left. I really don't know what's his state of thinking or why he chose to put Mississippi State on there. It's something personal, but I have no idea why. It's really not fair."

Wiggins added that he's interested in the Bulldogs because former Cardinals cornerbacks coach Terrell Buckley is now with the program, but the play is also eyeing Tennessee and South Carolina.

Wherever Wiggins ends up, he'll be immediately eligible to take the field next season.
