Diggs doing it all again this season
Quandre Diggs does it all for Angleton HS and the Texas commitment wouldn't have it any other way. The Wildcats are now 2-1 on the season after losing their opening game of the season to Friendswood. Diggs has been a star on offense, rushing 65 times for nearly 500 yards and eight touchdowns. He also has over 100 yards passing, 10 tackles, and racked up kick/punt return yards. "The first three games I take the time to get into game shape, that way I can be ready to play both sides of the ball," said Diggs to LonghornDigest.com. "Starting next week, I'm going both ways all the time. Much like I have done since my freshman year. My tackles should be going up here soon, within the next three games or so, they should be where they need to be. I just haven't played much defense yet." The all-around athlete is projected to play in the secondary for the Longhorns. The Scout.com 4-star player is currently ranked the 7th best corner in the nation according to Scout.com. "I don't feel any different, but it's a great honor and blessing from God that I got the scholarship offer from Texas. I'm just trying to continue to play each and every Friday the same way I have always done," said Diggs. "There is a lot of weight off my shoulders compared to last year. I don't have to impress anyone, even if there are coaches in the stands. I know that I'm committed to Texas and I'm not looking at or visiting anywhere else. It's helping my game and my teammates out a lot." Last Saturday, Diggs made the trip to Austin to watch the Texas take on Wyoming. Like many fans, the offense is the first thing that jumped out to the 2011 recruit. "You can tell the offense is in a bit of rebuilding mode. They are trying to gel with each other, but once they do it's going to be the same old Texas. I'm excited for when that day comes. It won't be long. Texas always wins 10 games in a season and it's not going to stop there this year. I'm going to one of the best schools in the nation." Diggs and the Wildcats will take on Alief Elsik this week. A team hurt by graduation last year, Angleton is starting to see their youth take over games. "I never had doubts about us. I knew that there would be some growth from last year's team. We had a lot of upper class-men that we lost, so I knew there would be some times that we adjusted. We have a lot of sophomores playing, but we are growing up. We are getting better each and every day," said Diggs. "It's been a full 360 turn since the 1st week of the season. We have a lot of guys coming back from injury and guys are practicing the right way. They are going hard in practice. I can tell they are taking the game more serious every week." Diggs says his leadership skills were the No. 1 thing he worked on this season. He has always felt like a leader, but with actual younger class-men this year, he had to take a different approach. LonghornDigest.com will continue to monitor Diggs and inform Texas fans of his player during his senior year.
