One of five players in Nebraska's recruiting class from the state of Arizona, Eric Hagg is a versatile player who could impact the Huskers at multiple positions. A product of Ironwood High School in Glendale, Ariz., Hagg is part of Nebraska's largest ever influx from the state of Arizona, including his high school teammate defensive end William Yancy. Hagg starred at receiver and defensive back for Coach Larry Allen at Ironwood. On offense, he caught 49 passes for 920 yards and nine touchdowns, while making 33 tackles and intercepting four passes on defense. Hagg's efforts as a senior earned him first-team Arizona 5A all-state honors from the Arizona Republic. Hagg's impressive senior season came on the heels of a strong junior campaign, when he had 37 catches, including 12 touchdowns and made better than 40 tackles on defense. He also had seven interceptions and blocked a punt. Hagg is ranked as a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, which also listed him as the No. 15 prospect in the state of Arizona. Scout.com listed Hagg as a three-star wideout, while SuperPrep Magazine ranked him as the No. 14 recruit in the Grand Canyon State. In addition to his outstanding accomplishments on the gridiron, Hagg is also a top basketball player, starting for his Ironwood High team. Hagg only visited Nebraska, but had numerous other offers including Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon and Oregon State. Hagg is the son of Eric Hagg Sr., and was born on Sept. 15, 1989.
