Donnie Baggs (Clear Springs) is a legit 6-2, and 205 pounds. The junior played safety as a sophomore, but moved to his more natural position of linebacker in the spring of 2009 and has taken off as a defender and prospect. Baggs recorded 91 total tackles, 4 sacks, 4 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries, and 1 touchdown his junior season. He will be a major target for Texas A&M in 2011.

Baggs is hearing from Baylor, TCU, Alabama, and Nebraska the most, with Baylor and Arizona being his only two offers at the moment. Baylor was Donnie's first offer which could go a long way in his final decision.

"Most definitely," said Baggs when asked if Baylor's early offer could help them down the road. "Baylor is one of my top choices that I put on my list of schools that I want to play at. It definitely makes a difference to me that they were the first school to offer me."

Baggs has a short list of schools that he would consider early favorites. That list includes; Alabama Baylor, Nebraska, TCU, and Texas A&M.

"Probably so,"said Baggs when asked if he is going to attend the A&M junior day on the 27th. "I planned on going to the Texas junior day this past weekend but we had a banquet this weekend. I'm going to the Oklahoma junior day on the 20th. Out of all of the schools I like, the one I really want to go see is TCU."

Baggs didn't grow up a fan of Texas or Texas A&M, but that is because he wasn't born in Texas. Having lived in Houston for a decade now, he is looking for a place close to home.

"Growing up, UCLA was really my favorite because I was born in California. I was born in San Diego and moved here when I was five or six. I'm looking for a school closer to home though. I'm looking for a good football team, of course. I want to go to a place there will be a variety of people on the campus and at the school," Baggs said.

Donnie is doing his due diligence on A&M and is figuring out what is attracting him to Aggieland.

"I haven't gotten the chance to visit A&M yet but they are definitely one of my top choices and I like the school. I did a little research on the diversity of their campus and how College Station is a true college town. Plus it's a short drive back home so A&M is looking good. I called Coach Malone a week ago and he told me that he is no longer with the A&M staff. He told me that the coaching changes have slowed down the process of evaluating defensive targets and to be patient."

Baggs, who has legit 4.6 speed, also runs track. Donnie runs the 4X100, 4X200, and throws shot-put.
