Maryland: Improper Appellation for Stefon Diggs

Prior to Maryland’s shift to the Big Ten Conference, the Atlantic Coast Conference has had the pleasure of hosting two of the nation’s finest wide receivers in Sammy Watkins and now, Stefon Diggs. With that said, the sheer nomenclature — wide receiver (Diggs’ listed position) is rather duplicitous, as it fails to encompass his entire skill set.

In 2012, Rivals listed him as the No.2 high school wide receiver prospect, and the No.8 overall prospect in the country. The same publication rated the currently troubled star, Dorial Green-Beckham ahead of Diggs as not only the No.1 wide receiver prospect, but the No. 1 overall high school prospect in country. Conversely, Diggs’ production has been greater than Green-Beckham to this point. Diggs was recruited by the likes of Ohio State, Auburn, and Florida, but he ultimately chose to stay in his home state and attend the University of Maryland.
