2014 Millennium High School athlete Aaron Diggs is a triple threat performer who excels as a receiver, defender and returner. On the season the 6-0 170 pound prospect has scored seven times, two as a receiver and five on kick, punt and interception returns. This ability as a playmaker in multiple facets of the game is potentially Diggs’ strongest attribute.
A safety, Diggs, who last spring ran 4.47 electric at a local combine, could play multiple spots in college as a defensive back. His most natural position is free safety, but the 170 pounder looks capable of playing corner and with increased weight could potentially play strong safety. A willing tackler, Diggs can make plays in the box and has on the season recorded 76 tackles. A smart player with a good feel for the game, Diggs has recorded eight interceptions to go with five passes defended. Currently flying under the radar and awaiting a first offer, Diggs has some initial contact from Utah State and Northern Arizona. Recently a coach from San Diego State caught one of Diggs’ games. Also a member of the Millennium track and baseball teams, Diggs has the goal of playing college football stating, “I would go anywhere to play football.” With an older brother playing college football, an aunt who played in the WNBA and a dad who played for the Brewers and Cardinals, Diggs should have an understanding of what it takes to succeed at the next level.
Boasting a diverse skill set and good speed, Diggs could be an early contributor at the college level as a special teams’ player, eventually, during his college career, competing for a starting position.
