Stefon Diggs won’t let brother Trevon rush recruiting process

Stefon Diggs wouldn’t mind it if his younger brother follows in his footsteps at Maryland.

Trevon Diggs, a sophomore wide receiver at Wootton, is already receiving interest from some Football Bowl Subdivision schools, despite the fact he still has three full seasons of high school football ahead of him.

Maryland and Virginia have offered Trevon, vying for the youngster to be a part of their class of 2016. But the attention is nothing new for the younger brother of Maryland’s dynamic sophomore playmaker.

“He was with me throughout my recruiting process so he knows how it goes,” Stefon Diggs said. “It’s all about picking a university for you. He tells me all the time, ‘I like Maryland,’ stuff like that, but at the end of the day, I want him to make the best decision for him.”

Trevon was a standout receiver as a freshman, catching 37 passes for 769 yards and six touchdowns a season ago. He’ll be Wootton quarterback Sam Ellis’s go-to option in the passing game.

On the recruiting front, Diggs still has a long way. With that in mind, the two brothers won’t play together in college regardless of the decision Trevon Diggs makes. When Trevon is ready to enroll, Stefon will be leaving, and that doesn’t consider the fact the older brother could leave early for the NFL draft after his junior year.

Even so, Stefon would want the family legacy to continue at Maryland.

“I’m not going to lean him towards anybody,” Stefon Diggs said. “[But] hopefully we can get him here.”
