DB Jordan Diggs of Cape Coral, FL has had more on his mind that recruiting in recent weeks. Diggs transferred to Island Coast High School but has not been approved for eligibility. Diggs has been practicing with his new teammates and is awaiting word on his appeal. That has taken precedent over recruiting. “I have not narrowed my list because I’ve been focused on the appeal and on the season,” Diggs said. “I’ve been talking to everyone. I don’t want to burn any bridges. I’m still wide open. I’m definitely doing my homework to cut down my list.” Diggs said he called USC recruiter John Butler last week but missed him, and Gamecock recruiter GA Mangus recently wrote to him on Facebook. “Everything is still good with USC,” he said. “I’m more than likely sure I will take an official visit to USC. I definitely feel like USC will be on my list. My five official visits will be my top five.” Diggs said he’ll take his official visits in season. Diggs has nearly 30 offers. Some of them are USC, Maryland, Ohio State, Boston College, Nebraska, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Auburn, Notre Dame, North Carolina and Louisville. Diggs said if he goes to any games this season it will be to the local schools. He plans to make a decision either before the US Army All American Game or at the game.
Junior WR Ahmad Fulwood (6-4 200) of Jacksonville, FL has offers from Clemson, USC, Florida, Miami, Tennessee, Boston College, Arkansas, Duke, Wake Forest, Notre Dame and Ole Miss and is hearing from Florida State, Alabama, Georgia Tech, LSU, Oklahoma, Oregon and Mississippi State. “Those are the schools showing the most interest right now,” Fulwood said. This summer, Fulwood attended camps at Clemson, Miami, Florida, Tennessee and Wake Forest. “I really liked Clemson,” he said. “It’s a small town with a nice campus.” While driving home from the Upstate, he stopped in Columbia to visit USC. “It’s so nice, Fulwood noted. “We were looking for the stadium. It was in the middle of nowhere and then, boom, there it is. It was so big! I thought it was awesome….just like Clemson.” Fulwood has no favorites and is showing interest in several schools including the Tigers and Gamecocks. “There are a lot of schools that really impressed me,” he added. As a sophomore, Fulwood caught 29 balls for 441 yards and eight touchdowns. He added two more scores on defense returning two interceptions to pay dirt.
Junior WR Ryan Jenkins (5-11 170) of Alpharetta, GA has an offer from Clemson, his first. “I went to a camp there back in June and I performed really well,” Jenkins said. “Coach (Tony) Elliot called me the next week and told me they were really happy with the way I played. He handed the phone to coach (Jeff) Scott and he offered me.” Jenkins is not unfamiliar with the Tigers. “My brother is a sophomore defensive back there, Martin Jenkins,” he said. “I’ve been going up there since I was in eighth grade when they started recruiting him so I’ve got a pretty good relationship with a lot of the coaches.” Jenkins also camped at USC, Georgia and Georgia Tech. “That was my first time in Columbia,” he said. “The thing that stood out to me there was Steve Spurrier, Jr. He was my favorite wide receiver coach of all the ones I’ve met.” Other schools showing interest in Jenkins are Georgia Tech, Alabama, Auburn and Florida. Clemson takes the early lead for Jenkins with their offer. “They’re obviously my favorite right now but as I get more offers and take more visits, it could change,” Jenkins said. He plans to attend several games in Death Valley this season.
