"Anything could happen," Diggs tells The Washington Post. He predicts Dwayne Haskins remains committed to Maryland and the Terps put together a big 2016 class.

Four-star Avalon School athlete and Alabama commit Trevon Diggs, in a ranging interview with The Washington Post's Mark Giannotto, says "anything could happen" in his recruitment and predicts "a lot of people" will commit to Maryland.

The entire story is worth reading, but a few things are of particular import to Maryland. With DJ Durkin assembling a local assistant-heavy coaching staff, Giannotto writes that Diggs "can't help but re-consider his options."

"It's hectic," Diggs said Tuesday in an interview. "You build relationships with coaches and they end up going somewhere else. What are you going to do? Are you going to follow them, or stay where you committed to? It's a hard decision."

Diggs, who's close with former Alabama assistant and new Terps defensive backs coach Aazaar Abdul-Rahim, said he's having ongoing conversations with Abdul-Rahim.

"I'm trying to deal with it day-by-day, but anything could happen," said Diggs, who finished 1,269 receiving yards this fall. "I do have a close relationship with [Abdul-Rahim]. I am committed to Alabama, but I am talking to Aazar about some things."

Here's something else really interesting:

"I understand why [Abdul-Rahim left Alabama]. It's a good fit. He's home now," Diggs said. "I feel like it's going to attract a lot of talent here and I feel like a lot of people are going to end up going to Maryland."

Diggs, the younger brother of former Terrapins star Stefon, committed in November to Alabama, to the surprise of many recruiting analysts. But verbal commitments are technically worthless, and there's no doubt Maryland would be elated to add him to its 2016 class.
