2012 Intro: Aaron Valdes

2012 Intro: Aaron Valdes

Aaron Valdes is getting some recruiting attention late in the process. Here's an intro to his game and recruitment.

A senior getting some late recruiting attention comes from La Jolla (Calif.) Prep in 6-foot-4, 190-pound 2012 small forward Aaron Valdes.

Thus far, Valdes has heard from Idaho, Maine, LMU, Pepperdine and NAU, and schools will certainly be in attendance to watch him over the spring evaluation period.

Valdes is hopeful he can make a relatively quick commitment.

"Hopefully I can make a decision this spring," Valdes said. "I plan on playing through the summer but hopefully I can get a good offer before then."

Education will be an important part of Valdes' decision.

"I want the school to have a teaching program, because I want to become a teacher. I want to go somewhere I can make a difference right away," he said.

The ability to go up and down the court is a strength of Valdes.

"I rebound and push the ball up the court," he said. "I'm still working on my ball handling."
