OT: Stefon Diggs to... MD??

Submitted by invisiblespoon on February 10th, 2012 at 7:56 AM

106.7 the fan in DC is reporting that Stefon Diggs will hold a press conference today at Looney's in College Park MD to announce where he will attend college.

Just passing along the info but apparently MD is now a favorite due to the recruiting of coach Locksley.

Interesting, had a feeling that Ohio was gonna be his choice with Urban opening the spot up at the exact same time.  I guess the two are unrelated.  Huge get for the terps.

Who doesn't dream of wearing a uniform that resembles the state flag of Maryland. I can only hope Michigan does the same thing in the future, I would love to see those deer on the helmet of Shane Morris.

Had a client in NC take me to one of their local HS football games.  We got there a little after kickoff and had to park a ways from the stadium.  While walking I hear the PA announcer say what sounds like first down _ucking Elks.  The client can tell I'm shocked by this and says to me it just sounds like that from here the school's nickname is the Bucking Elks.

is a train wreck right now. Their QB is seriously thinking about transfering. A place called Looney's is the right place to announce going to MD if that happens.

Let's not just assume he's a lock for Maryland just because he's announcing in College Park. About a week ago Jeremy Liggins of Oxford, MS announced at a restaurant in the middle of Oxford Square that he was choosing LSU over Ole Miss. That is some mighty advanced trolling for an 18-year old.

He definitely had a rough first year, but I think given time he's a pretty good coach and can turn Maryland around.

He did about as well as could be expected at UConn with absolutely no talent, and now he's in a much better recruiting hotbed with more tradition.

I saw Stefon and his teammate, Wes Brown, play in a playoff game in person and they seemed to have a tight connection on the sideline as good friends. Since Wes Brown committed to the Terps already, Stefon may have Wes in his ear to play with him so not only the pull of staying close to home is on Stefon's mind, but also the chance to play with a good friend for up to four years. Now obviously observing friendship from a sideline point of view with high school kids is something to take with a grain of salt, but I'm just saying it wouldn't shock me if Stefon did indeed pick the Terps tonight.

As a Maryland fan who has continued to follow his recruitment I will gladly take you up on that bet.  The reason diggs didn't announce on signing day was because he was going to visit MD that weekend and that was his last visit, all the chatter right now has the terps as his favorite and while I know MD is joke and edsall is a terrible coach MD currently has more players in the NFL than michigan so its not like going there is the end of his career.

This list only has michigan with 28 but I'd be happy to be wrong since i'm well a michigan fan.  My post was mainly to point out that MD is actually near the top in terms of putting players into the nfl including a couple top 10 picks in the last few years, and just used michigan since I figured it would impress people here more.
