Schools still chasing SEC commit

Jordan Diggs is a standout safety prospect from Island Coast High and Scout caught up with him to discuss the latest.

Jordan Diggs talked about his senior season, his first at Island Coast High.

"My season went good, we didn't make the playoffs though. I sat out our first four games because I was ineligible (due to the transfer). But when I came back I had three pics and three sacks."

Diggs, 6-feet and 195 pounds, became one of the most heavily recruited safety prospects in South Florida. He committed to South Carolina at the US Army All-American Game a few weeks ago.

"South Carolina had a great season. I feel like their program is in right direction. With a couple new young guys next year helping out we can do big things."

Despite the commitment, Diggs says he's still being actively recruited by a few other schools.

"Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and Nebraska still call me and have come by," he said. "Just the South Carolina coaches came to my house though."

Diggs, who checks in at No. 53 on my Florida Top 100 list, says despite their late efforts, recruiting is done for him.

"I already took all five of my visits. My last was the South Carolina/Clemson game, that pretty much did it for me. Since then it's been Gamecock Nation all the way. The schools I visited were Nebraska, Michigan State, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, and South Carolina. After taking all of them, I knew South Carolina is where I wanted to be."

Inside the classroom Diggs claims a 2.97 GPA and an 18 ACT score so he projects as a full qualifier.
