Former Rummel, Notre Dame RB Logan Diggs transfers to LSU
Some may contend that Logan Diggs should have ened up at LSU when he signed out of Archbishop Rummel in 2021. His path took a detour but he’s a Tiger now, joining the coach who successfully recruited him the first time around.
The former Notre Dame running back announced Tuesday that he will join LSU for the 2023 season.

Diggs visited LSU’s campus this past weekend.
Brian Kelly has been adamant that Louisiana talent is a high priority to target in the transfer portal if they are the right fit, confirming that the individual would more likely recognize the value of the benefits of playing for their homestate school.
Diggs accumulated 821 yards and four touchdowns at Notre Dame last season in 12 games, finishing behind only Audric Estime’s 920 yards. He rushed for 122 yards including a 51-yard scoring jaunt against Boston College. His 75-yard touchdown catch-and-run against South Carolina in the Gator Bowl was a highlight of bowl season.
The 6-foot, 214 pounder is considered a complete back with good hands and blocking skills.
His 2022 rushing total with the Irish would have been second best at LSU in that category behind quarterback Jayden Daniels wholed the Tigers with 885 yards.
When recruiting a prospect, you want someone who will embrace the challenge of competition and has confidence in his skills and abilities. It is apparent that Diggs does not shy away from competition as he joins a crowded backfield in Baton Rouge. As attritions at the position (and in the transfer portal era in general) in the past year have proven at LSU, you never have too many quality backs.
As it currently stands, the LSU running back room includes:
-Josh Williams, 11 games in 2022 with 532 yards and 6 scores
-Noah Cain, 11 games with 409 yards
-Amani Goodwin, injured so just 7 games with 267 yards
-John Emery, Jr., not available during spring drills but expected back in the fall
The 2023 class welcomes a pair of runners who look to have promising futures with the Tigers. Trey Holly impressed in the spring and Kaleb Jackson arrives this summer.
Diggs has two seasons of eligibility remaining while Williams, Cain and Emery, Jr. are all seniors.
