Jordan Diggs

RS Junior


6'0" 210 lbs.

Fort Myers, FL


Diggs was ranked as the 27th best safety in the 2012 class and 59th ranked overall player in Florida.

College Career:

Diggs had a brief showing in his freshman year, when he appeared in two early-season games before being sidelined by a left calf strain. In his redshirt freshman year, Diggs managed to stay healthy, appearing in all 13 games as a reserve defensive-back.

Last year Diggs made two starts at the spur position, which is a hybrid defensive back/linebacker position in the Gamecock defense.

2015 Outlook:

Diggs is expected to start at the spur in the 2015 opener. Diggs has the ability to play either the spur, or pure safety and linebacker, making him a very interesting professional prospect should he have a breakout year with increased snaps.


Diggs fielded a whopping 25 offers in total coming out of high school. How many other SEC schools were in pursuit of Diggs?
