Devin Aguilar knows that a difficult decision will have to be made in the near future. The 6-foot-2, 175-pound point guard from J.K. Mullen High School in Denver, Colo., is being recruited by a number of high-major basketball programs. However, several football programs have also expressed an interest in Aguilar. Right now, he is focused on improving his game throughout the spring and summer AAU circuit.
"Devin is playing with the Colorado Hawks this summer," said J.K. Mullen head coach Porter Cutrell. "He was in Houston last weekend and I have heard that he played pretty well. Devin is going to the Rumble in the Bay during the weekend of May 28-30, he will be in Denton, Texas, during the weekend of July 7-11, the Big Time during July 22-26 and will then finish up at the Double Pump event during the weekend of July 27-31.
"Devin has four more events to attend before the AAU circuit ends," he added. "I was in Las Vegas last weekend with my team, so I didn't get to see him play in Houston. I did hear that Devin played well."
As far as his recruitment goes, Aguilar is being recruited by the likes of Arizona, California, Colorado, Colorado State, Providence, Washington, Wyoming, Denver, SMU and Wichita State.
Additionally, several Division 1 football programs have also expressed an interest in the extremely talented prospect. As it stands right now, Aguilar is leaning towards playing college basketball.
"Wichita State, Denver and Colorado State are the schools that have shown a lot of interest in Devin lately," he said. "I would say that Wichita State and Denver are showing the most interest right now. I would say that Devin is leaning towards playing basketball in college.
"Devin does plan to take some official visits in the fall, but he has not talked about what schools he is going to visit," he added. "He just wants to get through the AAU season and then decide on what schools to visit."
