Trevon Diggs, brother of Minnesota Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs, committed to Alabama on Saturday, a day after naming the Crimson Tide to his final five.
The four-star athlete from Rockville, Md., spurned LSU, Penn State, West Virginia and Maryland — the perceived favorite — in the process. Diggs, who has reported 21 offers, conceded to Scout.com’s Brian Dohn on Friday that he will begin taking his official visits following Saturday’s announcement. Diggs’ older brother played at Maryland from 2012-14.
The 6-foot, 183-pound senior from The Avalon School (Rockville, Md.) is considered one of the top receivers in the country. He is ranked as the No. 6 athlete and the No. 4 player overall in Maryland.
Diggs joins T.J. Simmons (Pinson, Ala.) as the second receiver to verbally commit to Alabama in this year’s recruiting cycle.
