Stefon Diggs Spurns Ohio State, Decides On Maryland Terrapins

Stefon Diggs was the one player the Ohio State Buckeyes coaching staff still planned to add to its football roster next fall, but that unfortunately will not be the case. Diggs spurned the Buckeyes on Friday night, opting instead to announce that he'll be playing for the Maryland Terrapins during his college career.

It wasn't exactly a surprise announcement considering Diggs decided to move the location of his decision to a Terrapins' sports bar, but it certainly can't be making the Buckeyes coaching staff happy as they find out it's official.

SB Nation's Bud Elliott has more on Diggs and what Buckeyes fans could've expected:

At 6'0" and 185 pounds, Diggs has great speed and surprising toughness in tight spaces. He was selected as a U.S. Army All-American, and showed well in the game in San Antonio. He could be deadly on the deep routes for the team he ends up with this year. Diggs isn't perfect, however, as he lacks polish and must do a better job being consistent and catching the football, but you just can't teach this speed at this size.

It'll be interesting to see if this means Davonte Neal now ends up at Ohio State.

National Signing Day: Davonte Neal Not Signing With Ohio State Buckeyes, According To Report

The Ohio State Buckeyes were expected to be in the lead for Davonte Neal, a four-star recruit, but National Signing Day came and the team decided to pass on him. Though the early reports don't indicate an exact reason why, it seems the Buckeyes might be saving a scholarship for someone down the road.

It seems, according to early rumors, that the team might be waiting to see what fellow wide receiver Stefon Diggs decides to do. Diggs, a top 15 recruit, is expected to wait until Feb. 10 to make his decision with a visit to the Maryland Terrapins still on tap.

It's unclear if that's the exact reason Neal won't be signing with the Buckeyes on Wednesday, but Rivals' Mike Farrell reported late Wednesday afternoon that Neal won't be in this year's recruiting class.

It's going to be interesting following this little saga, especially if Diggs doesn't end up signing with the Buckeyes.
