Fort Myers (Fla.) Bishop Verot junior safety Jordan Diggs already holds two offers, from Maryland and South Carolina. The 6-foot-1, 191-pound defensive back regularly hears from Don Brown of Maryland and G.A. Mangus of South Carolina. While those are his only offers, they are not the only schools interested.
"Right now those are the two I have," Diggs said. "I do think I will get some more, from Miami or South Florida, both of them have said they want to see more film and I am talking to them a lot."
Diggs, who has previously visited South Florida, South Carolina, and Miami, is hitting the road this weekend for a short trip to see a big game.

"I am actually going to see Miami play this weekend," Diggs said.
He has hopes that Miami will tender an offer for him after they see more of his junior film. An offer from the Hurricanes would immediately throw them into major contention for his services.
"Miami would mean a lot, that would be good," Diggs said. "Some of the best safeties ever played at Miami. I like Miami. Coach (Randy) Shannon is a defensive guy, so it would be great to play for him. Coach (Wesley) McGriff is a real cool guy. I have been there, gone to a few camps and met with the coaches, so I like hearing from those guys. Everybody is good up there."
While Diggs lives close to the Miami program, it is an out-of-state program that he has major ties to. Jordan's father, Shed Diggs, was a linebacker for the South Carolina Gamecocks in the 1980's. Despite his father's ties to the program, he says it isn't a certainty that he ends up playing for Steve Spurrier and company.
"Not really," Diggs said. "South Carolina has always been the family school because my Dad went there but he isn't really pushing South Carolina on me. I know there are plenty of schools out there, so I have to give everyone a chance. I am open to all schools."
As a sophomore, Diggs racked up over 60 tackles and had three interceptions. He is looking to improve upon those numbers as a junior.
"My season has been going good and I have been making plays, so hopefully I will pick up some more offers," Diggs said. "We are 4-1 and 0-1 in district play, we had a big-time game with South Fort Myers, but they really came in and put it on us. Hopefully we will win out the rest of our games in district play and we get to play South Fort Myers again."
At this time, Diggs does not know when he wants to make an eventual decision.
