Stefon Diggs was the headliner of Maryland’s 2012 recruiting class, the first big-name local prospect to sign with the Terps after Randy Edsall's hiring in 2011.
Other top local prospects such as offensive lineman Damian Prince and outside linebacker Jesse Aniebonam have followed Diggs' lead in recent years, and Maryland is now selling some of the top local players from the 2015 and 2016 recruiting classes on the idea of staying home and building something special with the Terps.
Diggs tweeted his thoughts Monday night about what he, Aniebonam and others have referred to as a hometown "movement."
