Good Counsel WR-DB Stefon Diggs visits Cal, plans Ohio State trip next

Stefon Diggs enjoyed his official visit to California this past weekend and has his next trip tentatively scheduled for this coming weekend to Ohio State.

The All-Met wide receiver-defensive back said the trip was not set in stone because Good Counsel has midterm exams coming up.

Diggs said that Ohio State was among the horde of schools that recruited him early in his high school career, but that the Buckeyes “eased up because I didn’t show much interest.”

That changed, however, when Ohio State last week hired Urban Meyer as its coach.

“We’ve opened up the lines of communication,” Diggs said, noting that he has spoken twice with Meyer since he was hired, including once on Monday.

“I told him I was thinking about coming down this weekend,” Diggs said. “And he said, ‘We need to make that happen.’ ”

Diggs does not have any other official visits scheduled yet.

“I was going to go to Michigan, but as of now, I’m not sure,” he said. “Maybe Auburn or Florida. I’ve got four left, so we’ll see how it goes.”

As for Cal, Diggs said: “It’s a place I can see myself … I like where they’re at right now with football. They have a lot to offer.”

Diggs, who is 6 feet 1 and 190 pounds, caught 36 passes for 808 yards and scored 13 touchdowns this past season as the Falcons went 12-0 and won their third consecutive Washington Catholic Athletic Conference title.
