Sleeper defensive back Aaron Bagsby (6-0, 170, 4.55) from Henderson (Nev.) Green Valley has worked hard in the off-season to get himself ready for his senior season. The athletic Bagsby brings a lot to the table and he can't wait for his senior season to start so he can show D-I schools what he can do.
Bagsby improved his knowledge and skill level by attending the five-day camp at Michigan. He attended the two-day skills camp at USC and attended a Green Valley high school team camp at Nevada where he made all-camp defensive back.
Bagsby is also an outstanding in track and field at the triple-jump. In early June, he placed fourth and medaled at the Great Southwest Track Meet that was held in Albuquerque, New Mexico that had seven states participating.
Though Bagsby hasn't received any offers yet but Nevada, Utah, San Diego State are all showing interest and are just waiting to see some senior film and if they like what they see, offers could be forthcoming.
Even though Bagsby had a busy summer, he still found time to hold down a job and pass his ACT test with a 22 score while currently holding a 2.8 GPA.
"I am a play-maker on both sides of the ball," Bagsby said. "I'm a true team player who will do whatever it takes to help my team win."
"Engineering will be my major so a school will need a solid program in that field," Bagsby said. "Stability with the coaching staff will also be a factor."
"My goal for the season is to bring chaos to the opposition," Bagsby said. "Pure chaos. I will try to enforce my will in every game."
One of the reasons that Bagsby is a sleeper is now at a new school.
"I love my new school and I love the coaches," Bagsby said. "They are tough and nasty, just the way I like my coaches. I'm just trying to be what they and my teammates need me to be."
"I think about not having an offer yet, but it does not define me as a player,' Bagsby said. "If I ball the right way, the offers will come. It's only about winning with me."
"I just want to win," Bagsby said. "Time will reveal all."
What can you say about your three favorites Nevada, Utah and San Diego State?
"Coach Wilson from Nevada is a good man," Bagsby said. "I like him a lot."
"Coach Anderson from Utah is easy to talk to, and I like him a lot as well," Bagsby said. "Both of those schools would be a great choice."
"Where I end up will be my choice, and my parented won't try to sway me one way or the other," Bagsby said "My dad loves the city of San Diego though so I'm sure he wants me to look at them real hard."
As a junior Bagsby earned the label of being a lethal hitter by causing seven fumbles, five of them on special teams. He also had three receiving touchdowns.
The waiting for his senior to start is almost over for Bagsby.
Bagsby and his Green Valley teammates will hook up with Las Vegas (Nev.) Sierra Vista a week from Friday on August 26th.
