Skylar Diggins, Notre Dame football’s secret weapon?

Skylar Diggins reach goes well beyond the confines of Notre Dame’s women’s basketball team. The Lady Irish senior point guard has been the subject of a series of tweets from everyone from Wizards’ star John Wall to chart-toppers Lil’ Wayne and Chris Brown. Diggins has led her team to two consecutive NCAA Finals appearances and now she’s lending a hand to land her school’s football team some prized recruits.  The South-Bend Tribune reports:

On the morning of their first classes, both hit a mini-milestone of sorts — they saw Irish women’s basketball star Skylar Diggins on campus.

“Got class right across the hall from Skylar Diggins #winningtothemax,” Jones tweeted.

Minutes later, Stanley followed suit.

“Skylar Diggins sighting !!” he tweeted.

The two future Notre Dame football players aren’t the first to raise attention to the campus celebrity of Diggins. High school football recruits account for a small part of the thousands of Twitter mentions Diggins gets on her Twitter account @SkyDigg4. But does the national popularity of Diggins help the Notre Dame football staff in recruiting?

It may be small, but some say yes.
