Florida is in the running for another elite wide receiver from Maryland.
Can you Diggs it?
Wide receiver Trevon Diggs, the younger brother of former five-star recruit Stefon Diggs, announced his top schools in order Friday.
Alabama and LSU lead the pack followed by the Gators at No. 3. Diggs, a Rivals250 member ranked in the top 100 nationally by 247Sports and Scout, visited UF last month with QB Dwayne Haskins, another standout prospect out of Maryland.
Tennessee, Penn State, Miami, Clemson, Auburn, North Carolina, Rutgers, Virginia Tech and — surprisingly — Maryland round out Diggs’ list of favorites. The Terrapins were thought to be near or at the top of his leaderboard, so their last-place spot is puzzling.
His brother, projected to be a third-round pick in this year’s NFL draft, played the past three seasons at Maryland after choosing his home-state school over Florida and Ohio State. The Gators had been the team to beat for the majority of his recruitment.
The younger Diggs (6-0, 183) plans to return to Florida for a visit this year.
