Quandre Diggs does it all for Angleton HS and the Texas commitment wouldn't have it any other way.…
Impact Analysis: Quandre Diggs
Profile: Quandre Diggs High School: Angleton (Texas) Class: 2011 Position: CB/RB/WR Jersey: #10 Size: 5'9/190 The Good - Diggs is one of the most versatile players that you will come across. He could literally play running back, receiver, safety or corner back on the next level. It seems like he will get his first look in the defensive backfield for the Longhorns, but because he is such a weapon with the ball in his hands they may also try to find some more creative ways to use him. He should also be a potential weapon in the return game if he can beat out some other talents for the spot. Diggs best weapon is speed. He may be the fastest player in pads in the state of Texas for the Class of 2011. He has straight line break away speed and once he gets a crease you can just forget about catching him. On defense he is not afraid to come up and lay a lick, but he will still need to work hard on his techniques, especially if he has to match up with much taller receivers. But Diggs is strong, especially in the lower body, so he can play some bump and run coverage and jam receivers off the line. Like Asher Allen (above, Quandre Diggs could end up playing in the NFL with the right development. Scout.com Areas for Improvement - Diggs plays quarterback when he is on offense in high school and that has to have been his primary focus to help his team win ball games, so no matter what position he ends up at he will have to learn to perfect the position. His versatility is a bonus, but hopefully he can stick at the position the coaches set him at first once he gets to college, because players who have to switch sides mid-career usually lose a year on the transition. On offense he sometimes tries to use his speed to his advantage to try to get the corner to often bypassing some solid short gains as he looks for the home-run play. Teams have learned to key on him and spy him constantly. Pro Comparsion - Asher Allen, Minnesota Vikings Allen was a star on offense and defense coming out of high school and settled in on the defensive side of the ball once he landed in college. The plan looks like it will unfold similarly for Diggs as he is initially slated to get his first looks in Austin at corner or maybe even as a nickel back. Both players have elite speed and star or starred in track.
