Alabama commitment and top wide receiver prospect in the East, Trevon Diggs talks Tide, coaching changes and more.

Maryland legacy prospect Trevon Diggs has been one of the more talked about recruits in the class of 2016 despite a commitment to Alabama, will he make additional visits?

It's been nearly a month since Trevon Diggs shocked many by announcing a commitment to Alabama at halftime of one of his games for Gaithersburg (Md.) The Avalon School.

Many figured Maryland would factor heavy into the mix for the four-star wide receiver considering his older brother, Stefon Diggs, starred there and the program's previous staff had been courting him heavily.

Citing the desire to create his own path over following another, Diggs maintains the decision he went public with that Saturday afternoon.

"It's been good," he said of committed life. "Everything has chilled out. I'm just trying to focus on school right now."

In the meantime, Scout confirmed D.J. Durkin is the next man up at Maryland amid plenty of additional rumors surrounding the Crimson Tide coaching staff on both sides of the ball.

"From what I know, he's a defensive coach. I play offense, so I didn't really pay it no mind, it doesn't change my decision," Diggs said of Durkin. "I'm still committed to Alabama. 

"I like the coaches there right now, but 'Bama is always going to remain 'Bama. It's going to be the same, and that's what most of my decision went towards. Coaches changing and stuff like that, it doesn't effect me." 

Diggs, who maintains his Alabama solidity despite ongoing contact with LSU and Maryland, says he's not likely to make any visits to campuses other than to Tuscaloosa.

"Most likely not, because I'm committed to 'Bama," he said. "I'm taking an official visit in January, I think it's the 23rd, something like that. I'm just getting ready for college, working out and training as hard as I can. Just want to be prepared."
