A veteran member of Alabama’s secondary will return next fall.
Trevon Diggs, who missed nine games of the 2018 season due to a foot injury, announced via social media that he will return to the Crimson Tide for his senior year. The former four-star athlete and Maryland native totaled 20 tackles, six pass breakups and one interception.
The 6-foot-2, 199-pound cornerback hurt his foot against Arkansas in a 65-31 win for Alabama inside D.W.R. Razorback Stadium. With Diggs returning, the Tide will have depth and experience at the position.
His range, athleticism and toughness earned him a starting spot left corner in 2017, until Levi Wallace emerged and took the spot after the matchup against Florida State.
Both Saivion Smith and Patrick Surtain II started at corner, with Surtain earning All-Freshman Team honors from the Southeastern Conference, Associated Press and Football Writers Association of America. Alabama’s defensive backfield totaled 11 interceptions this season, but having Diggs back will make a huge difference.
He has 31 total tackles in three seasons.
