A week ago, Maryland head coach Randy Edsall confirmed that star wide receiver Stefon Diggs was testing the NFL waters. With the Terps’ final game of the 2014 season looming on the horizon, that testing will continue.
Saturday, Edsall told reporters that he had met Thursday with the receiver and his mother for an hour earlier this week and shared with them all of the pertinent information he had received from NFL types. The coach said Diggs will make a decision at some point after their game against Stanford in the Foster Farms Bowl next Tuesday.
“I gave them all the information that I had,” Edsall said. “I asked them if they had any questions, and they did. And they asked me for my opinion, and I gave them my opinion of what I think he should do. And I asked him if he’s leaning any way at all, and he said that he wasn’t, that he wants to play the game, and he’ll worry about it after the game is over. So we’ll see.”
Diggs missed the last three games of the regular season after sustaining a kidney injury in the Nov. 1 win over Penn State — he also received a one-game suspension stemming from his pregame antics the same day. He was cleared to return to practice in early December, and Edsall again confirmed Diggs will play in the bowl game.
Despite missing one-fourth of the season, Diggs still leads all Terps players in receptions (52), receiving yards (564) and receiving touchdowns (five).
