Texas CB Quandre Diggs Named Freshman All-America

Texas freshman cornerback Quandre Diggs capped off an enormously productive first season on the 40 Acres when he was named a Freshman All-American by the Football Writers Association of America on Monday.

The younger brother of longtime San Diego Charger cornerback Quentin Jammer, the Angleton native parlayed those bloodlines and hard work into a team-leading four interceptions on the season and emerged late as the best punt returner for the Longhorns, highlighted by an 81-yard return against Texas A&M that helped change the game and turn momentum against the Aggies.

Known as Quandre the Giant to his teammates, Diggs proved wrong any doubters who considered him undersized at 5-9 by recording 49 tackles, three tackles for loss, 15 passes broken up, and two forced fumbles in addition to those four interceptions.
