Ultra-talented 6-foot-8 nationally acclaimed middle school prospect Marvin Bagley Jr. is a tremendous talent for the future, and could become the best Arizona prospect the state has ever seen. With so much fanfare already surrounding the gifted young prospect, many have wondered what high school program the talented phenom would land at for his future. With talk about Bagley considering national powerhouse Findlay Prep, he has instead decided to stay in the state of Arizona - choosing to enroll next fall at local basketball power, Corona Del Sol High School.
Corona Del Sol is no stranger to success in the state, as the basketball program has completely dominated the state's basketball competition in route of 3-consecutive Division-I state titles, including a recent Division-I state championship this season with a big overtime win over Pinnacle HS.
Bagley also will play this spring and summer with the Arizona Power club basketball program, a top-rated rising club program in the state.
Bagley is nationally recognized by many national scouts among the very elite prospects from America’s 2018 class. As a result of such early recognition, Bagley has received scholarship offers from Northern Arizona University and also the Arizona State Sun Devils, with many more scholarship offers still yet to come.
There have been many of Arizona’s elite prospects receiving major attention at an early age throughout the years. Such past Arizona star players as Matt Carlino (BYU), Nick Johnson (University of Arizona), Jerryd Bayless (Memphis Grizzlies) and Mike Bibby (Former NBA player) are just a few names of past Arizona products that have received early national recognition for their young exploits on the AAU/club circuit.
Bagley is a unique talent that is destined for big things as he already possesses tremendous size and length at such a young age. At 6-foot-8 in height already, Bagley towers over any competition in his age group. His unique and advanced skillset which allows him to play on the perimeter and around the paint, and also his left-handed shooting prowess makes him very difficult to defend for opposing players. What is most impressive is that as a mere middle school prospect, Bagley is already dunking the basketball with ease and over defenders in traffic.
Bagley’s potential as a prospect is ultra-glaring. With continued hard work throughout the remainder of his high school career, this young man should become one of the great ones to play the game in the state.
