Crab Cakes and Football, that's what Stefon Diggs does.
The five star, Army All-American from Olney (MD) Good Counsel, decided to stay home and help rebuild a struggling Maryland program, committing to the Terrapins moments ago.
Diggs chose Randy Edsall and the hometown school over other finalists consisting of Ohio State, Florida, and Auburn. His decision was delayed from Signing Day after he made late trips to Columbus and College Park, the latter of which may have sealed the deal after students showed him "much love", chanting his name at the UMD-UNC basketball game and making "Wanted" posters with his name on it.
Joining teammates RB Wes Brown and OL Mike Madaras, Diggs goes to play for head coach Bob Milloy's alma mater where he immediately gets labeled the "savior" of a program that went just 2-10 overall and 1-7 in the ACC in Edsall's first season. Diggs is expected to start from day one on campus and should be a high impact player to watch in 2012.
This loss definitely stings a bit as Urban Meyer and his staff gave Diggs their best chance, but we won't be losing sleep over this one as it gives another scholarship towards the count in an excellent 2013 class. Diggs could have been a fascinating player for the Buckeyes this upcoming season, but now focus shifts to next year's group of starts, which is extremely talented in their own right.
