Stefon Diggs VS Harrison Twins

ok guys... I've finally got a little time and feel the need to tell you guys why I think the twins are more important than Diggs.

First my thoughts on Diggs. He's a GREAT player, a GREAT Maryland player. A play maker and a 5 star football recruit at a skill position. We've probably never gotten a recruit of this magnitude in football... ever. But say Diggs commits. What are the chances other big time in state recruits follow in the upcoming years? Better for sure, but I don't think it's a slam dunk by any means. The team would have to impress in Edsalls second season or we'll be right back to square one. Diggs is also only ONE guy. One guy out of 11 on the offensive side of the ball and one guy out of 22 on both sides of the ball, not counting special teams.

I understand the Booth and Walt comparisons, but in football one guy isn't as big as it is in basketball. It's a lot harder to convince people to join one other guy in an 11 man offense. In basketball it's so much different. One guy can be the difference between a NCAA tourney second round loss or the final four. Which brings me to the Harrison twins.

Imagine getting two of the top 10 high school players to play on your 5 man team. These guys play offense and defense. It's possible they could be on the floor for 30 minutes a game each. It's one thing to have two top ten guards that have been friends since grade school playing for your team, but an entirely different thing when they are twins. These guys were probably playing one-on-one in the womb! They know exactly what each other is going to do, well before they do it. There have been several bigs that were twins: Plumlees, the dudes that played for Stanford back in the day. But it is not the same. Twin guards! The fast break would be like free throws. People are saying if we don't get the Harrison twins well get two other top 30 guards. This is great, but it's NOT the same. These kids are 6'5" guards that are TWINS! Ok, I think I've made my point.

While I think Diggs would be HUGE for the football program, I do not think he puts Maryland in a BCS game. I do however, think the Harrison Twins can WIN a national championship at Maryland. And I think they WILL.
