National Signing Day 2012: Stefon Diggs To Maryland A Possibility, Ron Zook Says

Stefon Diggs, a five-star athlete from Our Lady of Good Counsel High School in Olney, Md., will not be announcing his college decision on National Signing Day 2012, but he remains a major topic of discussion. Why? It appears that Maryland is making a late push to sign him, as he's scheduled to take a visit to campus this weekend.

One analyst even believes that Diggs could ultimately choose Maryland. Former Illinois coach Ron Zook, who is now a CBS Sports analyst, said he thinks the Terps have a legitimate shot. Via MaxPreps:

Former Illinois head coach Ron Zook, who was impressed with Diggs even as a ninth grader, believes there's a chance that Diggs will stay at home to play for Maryland.

Zook said that Maryland assistant Mike Locksley has a great relationship with Diggs and his family and could convince the nation's No. 2 athlete to sign with Maryland.

Zook and Locksley have worked together, so it's possible Zook is just giving him dap. Most analysts believe Florida is in the lead for Diggs' services, with Auburn chasing behind him.
