Diggs, a sinewy 6-foot-6, 185-pound small forward from Gwynn Park H.S. in Brandywine, Md., led the D.C. Blue Devils program to a second place pool finish and playoff appearance at the recent Nike Memorial Day Classic in New Orleans.
In the game we watched, Diggs proved to be an effective player in transition and displayed a nice stroke inside of 15 feet. If he can extend his range and add some size to his frail upper body, Diggs has the chance to be a good college basketball player.
Diggs said he's been offered scholarships by Wisconsin, George Mason and Buffalo. He said that Maryland and Clemson have also expressed serious interest, while Dayton, Duquesne, N.C. State, Virginia Tech, Syracuse and Stanford are in the mix as well.
As a junior at Gwynn Park (the same program that produced Clemson's Sharrod Ford), Diggs averaged 17.5 points, nine rebounds, four assists and five blocks per game. He said he has over a 3.0 GPA and took the ACT for the first time on June 5.
Diggs has already paid unofficial visits to George Mason and Maryland.
His summer plans include the Nike All-American Camp and a session of the Eastern Invitational Basketball Clinic. He may also suit up for the Blue Devils at various other July events.
It's likely that the Orange, waiting on decisions from other players like Eric Devendorf, will stay interested in this young man and probably scout him too during the summer AAU sessions. This could change, of course, if a player like Devendorf picks the Syracuse program as his college destination.
