Aguilar hoping to play basketball

UW freshman receiver Devin Aguilar said today that he is hoping to walk-on and play for the Husky basketball team once the football season has concluded.
The native of Denver was the Class 5A State Tournament MVP in 2006 as a guard at Mullen High and received some significant basketball recruiting interest before deciding to concentrate on football.
But he said his plan was always to try to walk-on to the Huskies. And he said with the football team’s season likely ending after the Cal game on Dec. 6, he will have the time to make it work to play both sports this year.
“I think as far as now I will walk-on to basketball,” he said today. “Because I was making that decision based on how our season went in football and right now, since it’s real shaky, I might as well go out and do it.”
Aguilar said if there was a bowl game to play in and prepare for, it would make it difficult to try to do both. He said he won’t walk-on to the basketball team until after the football season ends.
Aguilar said he has talked with basketball coach Lorenzo Romar to keep him up to date.
“He knows I’m trying to come out and want to play,” he said. “I told him the same thing, that I was just basing it on the (football) season and how things go.”
Aguilar, listed at 6-0, 195 on the football roster, describes himself as “just a guard” and not specifically a point or shooting guard.
He said one of his best friends at UW is Husky guard Venoy Overton, who has been trying to convince him to play basketball.
“Last winter when I came in, he was one of the first persons I met and we just communicated,” Aguilar said. “We’re real good friends and he gives me the scoop (on the basketball team) sometimes.”
The Huskies currently do not have any walk-ons on the roster.
