The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have a roster full of players, and we want to talk about them all. One Foot Down’s player profile series will, once again, take a look at every single one of them, and hopefully, we all learn a little bit more about these guys, and Notre Dame’s chances for the upcoming 2021 season.
#22 Logan Diggs, RB
Head coach Brian Kelly planned to add two running backs with the current recruiting class, and after the signing of Audric Estime, Logan Diggs’ commitment checked the item off Kelly’s list. This Marrero, Louisiana native not only represented Archbishop Rummel High School on the football field but also on the track and the basketball court. 247Sports.com ranked Diggs as the no. 35 running back in the nation and the no. 19 player from Louisiana. Notably, as a junior, he helped lead his team to a 13-0 season, running for 924 yards on 15 carries and five TDs and catching 18 receptions for 186 yards and four TDs. The three-star recruit received offers from names such as USC, Michigan State, and Nebraska, as well as a late but tempting pitch from the LSU Tigers from his own backyard.
The Restaurant That Fits
Diggs has a good amount of conditioning work ahead of him, especially as he joins Chris Tyree, C’Bo Flemister, and Kyren Williams. Only time will tell what impact any freshman will make. It’s still early, so to fuel up for the season ahead, we’re going with Tim Hortons.
6’, 200 lb. Diggs has a little room to bulk up in the season ahead. He has a reflexive and agile style of play, but his top end speed could use a little extra oompf. As he uses the 2021 season to work on his pace and his passing, Irish fans can expect freshman Estime to get field time ahead of Diggs, but a large reason for that is that they are two different types of backs. Diggs is much more like Kyren Williams, and has the versatility and vision to be a game changer for the Irish — just not this year.
