Angleton (Texas) High defensive back Quandre Diggs has been working hard this summer in anticipation of his upcoming senior season. The 5-foot-9, 190-pound, four-star Texas commit just returned from Orlando where he and his teammates placed second in the Gridiron Kings 7-on-7 tournament.

"We got second place in the Gridiron Kings tournament this weekend in Orlando. We lost to the Southeast team in the finals. It was fun, a couple other Texas commits played with me," said Diggs.

Diggs was accompanied by fellow Longhorn commits Jaxon Shipley, Chet Moss, Kendall Thompson and Miles Onyegbule as they represented the southwest team in the tournament.

Diggs lined up almost exclusively in zone this past weekend and it served as a good chance for him to learn to play a new style of coverage.

"I'm used to playing a lot of man. We play nothing but man coverage down here in Angleton. Going to a zone was a little different for me but I have to get used to it anyways, because Will Muschamp plays a combination of both."

The Angleton standout is one of the more versatile players in the state of Texas and could play multiple positions at the collegiate level if the coaches needed him to. He currently lines up at three different positions for his high school team.

"I play both sides of the ball. I'm the starting quarterback and the starting free safety. I also line up at the nickel corner sometimes."

Coaches and recruiting experts both project Diggs as a corner at the next level. He is currently's fifth ranked cornerback in the nation. He could also see some reps on special teams returning punts and kicks.

Diggs has also been working hard this summer to improve as a leader for his upcoming senior season.

"I'm just trying to become a better leader for my teammates. I'm going into my senior year so it's all about leadership. I've shown everything on the field and it's time for me to be a leader now."

As far as any individual accomplishments for the upcoming season are concerned, Diggs says that only the team's goals matter to him.

"The state championship is my ultimate goal. I can put up individual stats all I want but individual stats don't count as a win. I want to win, that's my main thing."

Diggs finished his junior season with 62 tackles and four interceptions on defense. He also passed for 478 yards and four touchdowns along with 1,214 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns. He also plans on graduating high school a semester early being an early-enrollee at Texas.
