• Earned an offer from Notre Dame May 5, 2020 and committed to the Irish July 29, 2020 despite never visiting campus.

• Took his first visit to Notre Dame last December for a self-guided tour.

• Received an offer from LSU one week before the early signing period and decided that he wouldn’t announce his destination until the February signing period.

• Secretly signed with Notre Dame in December but seemingly second-guessed his choice in January after former Irish safeties coach Terry Joseph, his main recruiter from ND, left for Texas.

• Was not directly in contact with LSU as he had already signed a letter of intent with Notre Dame, but he could have potentially been released from his LOI. However, Diggs stuck with the Fighting Irish.

Kyren Williams and Chris Tyree will lead a strong 1-2 punch at running back once again next fall, but Diggs can compete for the No. 3 spot and potentially play a role on special teams.


"I believe my future in South Bend will be great. You can expect someone who’s gonna come in with a chip on his shoulder ready to work. I am going to compete and work hard for everything I want. I'm ready to prove everyone who has doubted me wrong." - Diggs


“Diggs is a well-rounded prospect who specializes in outside runs and can be an effective receiver out of the backfield. He has quick feet and is elusive in space, can quickly change direction, and has great burst and is super twitchy. Diggs has a second gear when he reaches the second level of the defense and flashes a ton of home-run potential.” - Rivals South Central recruiting analyst Sam Spiegelman
