SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Defensive back Cody Riggs, who started all 12 games for Florida last season, is transferring to Notre Dame for his final year of eligibility.

Riggs can play immediately because he is scheduled to graduate from Florida this spring.

The 5-9, 190-pound Riggs ranked fourth for the Gators last season with 51 tackles playing safety after previously playing cornerback. He also had three pass breakups and 1.5 sacks. He played in 40 games over three seasons, totaling 107 tackles, two sacks, an interception and eight pass breakups.

The Irish lose starting cornerback Bennett Jackson to graduation and started five players at safety last season.

Riggs is the son of former Atlanta Falcons standout running back Gerald Riggs Sr. and the nephew of former Notre Dame wide receiver Bobby Brown.

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly called Riggs an outstanding player.

''Cody definitely brings veteran leadership and versatility to our team and defense,'' Kelly said. ''He will help us immediately but, more importantly, Cody is a great kid with a tremendous focus on both football and academics."

Riggs said he was looking forward for the chance to be a leader for the Irish.

''I am very thankful for this opportunity,'' Riggs said. ''I fully intend to make the most of this opportunity by not only giving my absolute best effort, but also leading by example both on and off the field.''

Riggs received a medical redshirt for the 2012 season after playing in just two games.
