Quandre Diggs is one of the most versatile juniors in the state of Texas. The 5-10, 190 pound starting quarterback and safety for Angleton High School will be one to watch in the coming year. Diggs has 4.3-4.4 speed and has already received many respectable offers.

"I got six offers right now. A&M, Baylor, U of H, Missouri, Tulsa, and Arkansas. Right now no one is sticking out for me. We are trying to win a state championship so I'm focusing on that. I mean I love the state Texas, but I have a lot of favorite schools."

As mentioned above, Diggs plays both sides of the ball for Angleton and he enjoys the defensive side the most.

"To be honest I like playing free safety the most. I like hitting people. That's my favorite thing to do when I am on the field, hitting people."

Quandre could also see himself being an elite cover corner at the next level.

"I could be a real good cover corner. I feel like I have great hips, and with the flexibility I have, I feel like that could be a position I play in college. I watch a lot of film with my brother and I feel like I could be a great cornerback."

Diggs can work out at many different positions and formations. If you go watch an Angleton game you probably will see him lined up in the slot, runningback, quarterback, free safety and corner. His coaches will try to find different ways to get him the ball or in a position to make a play on defense. Diggs has over 1,100 yards rushing, 13 rushing TD's, 4 passing TD's for over 400 yards in the air, close to 40 tackles, and 4 INT's on the year.

"I feel like I know the game better than anyone I play against. I love watching football and football is my love and its what I like to study. With football I feel comfortable and I can make plays whenever I need to. Whatever my teams needs is what I am willing to do."

The University of Texas will have a distinct advantage with Quandre because of his family ties to the football program.

"I grew up being a big Texas fan and I never miss one of their games. If Texas really came at me they would be at the top of my list. They are the top school on my list right now. I visited twice and I loved it."

Texas A&M was one of the first schools to offer Quandre but with his family being big longhorn fans, he doesn't quite know where the Aggies stand on his list.

"A&M is a real good school. They are not always winning but they are getting better. I don't know if it's that my family doesn't like A&M because there has always been a rivalry in my family with A&M and Texas. So I don't really know about A&M."

Despite being an avid Longhorn fan, it's not out of the question that Quandre could land in College Station and that is because of his relationship with Van Malone.

"You know Coach Malone is a real cool guy. I like Coach Malone a lot. He is a great coach and was a great player at Texas. When we do talk about sports he really gets me into the conversation but a lot of times it's just about family and how I am doing. I like how he can separate football from real life. I like that about coaches because we need our family time and it's nice that they aren't focused on football all the time. "
