Recruitment Rundown
COVID-19 and the dead period it brought with it complicated Diggs’ recruitment for sure. Notre Dame offered in May and he hadn’t yet had the chance to visit South Bend when he gave his verbal commitment to the Irish on July 29th. It took a team effort to get Diggs to place his faith in the Notre Dame staff and credit is due to Lance Taylor, Tommy Rees, Brian Kelly and Terry Joseph. 

Diggs finally did get to see South Bend when he visited for the Irish’s final regular-season game against Syracuse, but then LSU offered on December 9th, just a few days before the Early Signing Period. 

It took some convincing, but Diggs signed with Notre Dame in December and then the Irish held on as LSU continued to trend with the Louisiana native up until National Signing Day. 

Archbishop Rummel Head Coach Nick Monica
“He’s complete. He’s a running back who can make you miss in space. He’s a bigger back, so he’s able to break through tackles. He’s really good in pass protection, which you don’t see that often at this level, and also a pretty good receiving threat as a running back. He’s a pretty good back and a great kid to go along with it.

“He’s a good kid, good student. He gets along with everybody. He’s a good locker room guy as well. I think he’s got a pretty good head on his shoulders and comes from good parents.”

ISD Expert Jamie Uyeyama
Diggs has two critical traits that in my mind make him an elite prospect. He has the vision and lateral agility to make defenders miss and he has the strength and balance to consistently gain yards after contact. Those are so important for a back at the college level and they are why I am so high on Diggs as a prospect.

I’m fine being alone in my current evaluation with him because of that, especially because I know he is only going to get bigger and stronger. There are other backs with splashier highlights, but that has less to do with him than what he is working with in front of him.

I think he can be an every-down back for Notre Dame who can excel behind better blocking in college. He has the talent to eventually be a starter and has the traits of a back who can be a closer in the fourth quarter.

Favorite ISD Quote
“It was really difficult because I’m not really the person it’s for easy to decide on something without seeing it. I’m the type that has to see it to believe it, but I put my trust in the coaches and staff and my coaches and just did what was best for me.”
