Recruiting: Archbishop Rummel running back Logan Diggs commits to Notre Dame
Another outstanding local prep standout is heading to an outstanding university and football program.
Archbishop Rummel running back Logan Diggs has committed to Notre Dame.
One of the most underrated, if not the most underrated player in Louisiana in the Class of 2021, Diggs (6-0, 195) chose the Fighting Irish over offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas, Arkansas State, Colorado, Florida International, Houston, Kansas, Louisiana (Lafayette), Louisiana Tech, Louisville, Memphis, Michigan State, Nebraska, Nicholls, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Purdue, SMU, Southeastern Louisiana, Southern Miss, Texas State, Toledo, Tulane, Vanderbilt, Virginia and USC.
The 6-foot, 195-pound Diggs has split time at running back for the Raiders the last couple of seasons.
In 2019, Diggs rushed 165 times for 923 yards and seven touchdowns and he caught 27 passes for 201 yards and two more scores, helping Rummel go 13-0 as the Raiders captured the school’s third Division I state championship since 2012.
Rummel coach Nick Monica is very high on Diggs and very happy for him.
“Logan is a versatile back,” Monica said. “He can be a power guy but he can also make you miss in the open field. He is a tremendous pass catcher out of the backfield. At his age, he also takes a lot of pride in pass protection and you don’t see that very much at the high school level. He’s a good student with a 3.4 GPA and a good young man from a good family. We are very happy that it worked out for him.”
On the Rummel track and field team, Diggs participates in the hurdles and long jump.
CCS recruiting analyst Rene Nadeau notes the versatility of Diggs.
“He’s a complete back and one of the most versatile in 2021 class nationally. He squeezes every yard out of each carry. As a cutback runner with great vision, Diggs runs north/south and finishes each carry as a violent, physical ball carrier. He squats 445 pounds and cleans 270. Plus, he has 4.5 forty speed, is a very willing blocker and shows soft hands as a receiver.”
Up in South Bend, Diggs will join Rummel baseball star Jackson Dennies, who signed with Notre Dame in November.
