We Are Family: Bagley Leaves Corona del Sol

By the time Marvin Bagley III ends his prep career he could go down as the greatest basketball player in Arizona history.

It just won’t be as a Corona del Sol Aztec.

The highly decorated 6’11 sophomore star who is already one of the most skilled big men in the country took to social media Monday night to announce his future.

Marvin Bagley, Jr. is joining the coaching staff at Hillcrest Academy and MB III’s younger brother Marcus will also be playing at the north Phoenix prep school.

Bagley III already holds offers from Duke, Kentucky, Arizona, UCONN, UCLA and other high-profile programs after helping lead the Aztecs to their fourth-straight state title.

Corona will be starting fresh this season on the bench as well after veteran coach Sammy Duane stepped down in the spring. The Aztecs replaced Duane less than a month later.
