Midlothian HS ATH Eric Agbaroji (Midlothian, TX) became the tenth verbal commitment for the 2011 Boise State recruiting class back in August and he'll be visiting The Blue in just a few weeks. In the meantime, his goal is to be the best he can possibly be both on and off the field. When will he visit Boise State? "I'll be going up there on October 9th," he said. "I'm looking forward to seeing everything. It's going to be cool to see them play on the blue turf," he added.

The future Bronco had a minor scare a few weeks ago as he began to experience some chest pains. He went to the doctor and was told there appeared to be some swelling around his heart. He was sidelined for the first couple games of the season and received a medical release a little over a week ago. Now he feels 100% and is ready to lead his team to the state playoffs. "It started about three weeks ago," he stated. "I was having some chest pains. I got my release and the doctor says I'm good to go. I feel fine now."

The Boise State staff kept in touch with Eric and he told (DBs Coach) Marcel Yates that there's nothing to worry about. "I spoke to Coach Yates last Sunday. He asked if I was alright and I told him it's nothing to be concerned about," Agbaroji said. "Coach Yates is probably the coolest coach I've met in the recruiting process. He's the type of guy that will have fun with you."

The Midlothian Panthers are currently 2-2 on the season. The talented DB uses his 4.4 speed to clamp down on the opponent's best WR and QBs rarely throw the ball his way. "I'll run with the receiver wherever he wants to go," he said. "I'm a pretty balanced DB. My zone coverage skills are real good."

The Panthers haven't been to the state playoffs in five years. To break that streak is their main goal. "It'll be big for us to make the playoffs this year. That's our team goal," he said. "Personally, I just want to be the best I can be," he added.
