Urban Meyer: ‘Stefon Diggs is one of best players in the country’

Fellonte Misher, Stefon Diggs

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer might be a little jealous of the Maryland Terrapins. The Buckeyes may be favored to win the Big Ten Conference and they’re one of the most talented teams in college football, but they don’t have a wide receiver the caliber of Maryland’s Stefon Diggs.

Meyer was quite complimentary of Diggs when asked about the receiver at the Big Ten’s media days.

“Very athletic. Diggs is one of the best players in the country in my opinion,” Meyer told the Baltimore Sun’s Matt Zenitz.

Meyer went as far as proclaiming the Terrapins could be competitive during the program’s first season in the Big Ten Conference.

If Maryland is going to live up to Meyer’s expectations, Diggs will have to be fully healthy and return to the same explosive player he was prior to breaking his leg Oct. 19 against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. Diggs missed the final six games of the season.

But Diggs says he’s fully healthy and ready for fall camp.

Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown believes Diggs will be the same explosive player seen prior to the injury.

A healthy Diggs is a dangerous player. As a freshman, he finished eighth nationally in all-purpose yards. Diggs averaged 17.3 yards per catch last season and Maryland was 5-1 before the receiver was knocked out of the lineup.

Even though Maryland was picked to finish fifth in the Big Ten’s eastern division, Diggs will be a reason to watch the Terrapins each Saturday.

    Maryland is terrible. They won’t be competitive and they haven’t been competitive since they fired Friedgen. Edsall looked like the real deal when they hired him, but he has proven to be a terribly inept HC. They should’ve fired him after last season, and I highly doubt he’ll make it through the full season.

    Oh, and those uniforms are hideous. It’s not being a hater if it’s the truth….

    Maryland is a basketball school.

    Just a thought here but could this be some posturing by Meyer? He recruited Diggs and almost had him signed before he committed to Maryland. Could this be a play by Urban to show future recruits that he cares about the players he recruits and thinks highly of them even if they go to another team? Then again there is a reason Meyer recruited the kid so maybe he really does think that highly of him.

    There are maybe only 5 competitive teams in the Big Ten. Maryland is not one of them.
