Las Cruces High's Andrea Aragon

Las Cruces High's Andrea Aragon signed last week to continue her basketball career at New Mexico Junior College in Hobbs, N.M.

It's good to see Aragon sign and get a chance to play at the next level, I'm surprised she didn't sign with a four-year school. Aragon is a very good all-around player, a fierce competitor and a big reason the Bulldawgs were a Final Four team in Class 5A in two of her final three years in high school.

Aragon is a good shooter, has a good feel for the game and can pass the ball well. I wouldn't be shocked if she started or played major minutes at NMJC next year. And don't be surprised if she lands a scholarship to a four-year school down the road.

Aragon came a long way during her time at LCHS and is a fun player to watch. As with all players, she'll need to continue to work on her game in all facets and must step things up a notch at the college level.

It's always good to see a player with talent and a good work ethic be rewarded and Aragon has certainly been rewarded.
