Trevon Diggs, the brother of former Terps standout Stefon Diggs isn’t worried about being in his older brother’s shadow.
In fact, Trevon says he is the most talented of the Diggs brothers.
“Yes I am better than my brother… stop asking,” Trevon, a 4-star recruit who is a senior in high school, tweeted Sunday night.

Trevon, who plays wide receiver among other positions at The Avalon School in Gaithersburg, Md., is considering offers from schools such as Maryland and Alabama. He was set to announce his commitment in early July, but postponed the announcement.
If Trevon does decide to follow in his older brother’s footsteps at Maryland, he’ll have big shoes to fill.
Stefon was a 5-star recruit out of Our Lady of Good Counsel High School in Olney, Md., and was a second-team All Big Ten Conference selection for the Terrapins in 2014. He totaled 2,227 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns in college before being taken by the Minnesota Vikings in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
Sure, the friendly jab at his brother was all in good fun, but it showed Trevon certainly isn’t intimidated by his brother’s collegiate accomplishments and is aiming to do even better.
