Diggs no stranger to recruiting

Trevon Diggs just wrapped up his sophomore season and he's already got six offers on his list. The Rockville (Md.) Wootton receiver is no stranger to the recruiting process. His older brother, Stefon Diggs, was a five-star recruit in 2012 and now plays at Maryland.

Maryland, Virginia, NC State, North Carolina, Nebraska, and Penn State have all offered Trevon Diggs. The 2016 receiver was a bit caught off guard by picking up the offers at this stage in his high school career.

"I wasn't expecting all of this attention so early, but I'm grateful that it happened," he said.

"(Coaches) just say I have a given gift."

His older brother, five-star recruit Stefon Diggs, plays at Maryland. The younger Diggs does like Maryland early, but he said his brother being there doesn't give the Terps much of an upper hand.

"They don't really (have an advantage), it's kind of neutral with the other schools. Because my brother goes there, I don't think it's a really big difference," he said.

"(Stefon) doesn't particularly favor any school (for me). He just says, ‘whatever makes you happy, whatever school is going to treat you right, that's where you should go,'" Diggs said.

Now that it's Diggs' turn to go through the recruiting process, having his older brother, who's been through it, there for him is a big help.

"He tells me a lot, he helps me out with it a lot. He knows a bunch of coaches, what they say, how they treat other kids, he helps me out a lot with it," he said.

Penn State and Virginia also stand out early for the 6-foot-1, 175-pound receiver.

"I don't know (what I like about Penn State), I think it's just because it's Penn State," he said.

"Virginia, I really like their facilities and I really like their coach, coach (Mike) London. I feel like I have a good connection, a good relationship with him, I feel like he'll treat a kid like his own son."

Diggs knows he has plenty of time before he needs to make a decision and he's in no rush. When asked what he'll be looking for, his immediate answer is about the weather.

"Somewhere hot," he said.

He'll also be asking a few other questions when he evaluates the programs recruiting him.

"Are the coaches going to teach me how to be a man? Who's going to help me after football? Things like that," he said.
