Boise State grabs Texas OL

Arlington (Texas) Martin already has three players committed to Division I programs with defensive end Devonte Fields headed to TCU and twin defensive backs Eric Amoako and Stephen Amoako both pledged to Oregon. The Warriors can now add another member to that list.
Offensive lineman Steven Baggett has drawn quite a bit of attention this spring. However, the 6-foot-3, 255-pound senior-to-be decided to end the recruiting process on Saturday.
"I committed to Boise State today," Baggett said on Saturday afternoon. "I talked to the o-line coach, coach (Chris) Strausser, and my recruiter, coach (Brent) Pease. They were both excited. They said they think it's a great fit for me.
"I went up there on a visit a few days ago. I've always liked them and when I came back and talked to my family, my friend and my coaches I called them up and told them that I think it would be the right thing to do, to go there."
Baggett plays offensive tackle for Martin and, at the moment, the plan is for him to stay on the outside in Boise.
"They said I'll probably play tackle," he said. "They think I can really play anywhere though. They said they're looking at me as a tackle right now but that could change. As of right now, it's tackle."
Baggett chose the Broncos over a number of other programs.
"I had some other offers too," he said. "I had seven, I believe. I had offers from Air Force, Western Kentucky, New Mexico State, South Alabama, Georgia State and Texas State."
