Coming off a 10-2 regular season and Johnny Manziel’s Heisman Trophy, the Aggies arguably have the most momentum of any team in the SEC heading into the bowl and recruiting season.
Ricky Seals-Jones, the top overall receiver in Texas, committed to the Aggies earlier today. Seals-Jones is 6-5 and 230 pounds, and he could play a variety of positions for the Aggies during his college career. He’ll be electric.
Seals-Jones joins an already stellar recruiting class, and you can see the Texas A&M brand, backed by the SEC, gaining the most momentum in arguably the country’s top state for high school prospects. Texas is left in a cloud of dust, and it’s tangible to see the Aggies emerge out of the Big 12’s shadow and start to control the state of Texas.
Not only are the Aggies threatening Texas, but they just gut-punched LSU for Seals-Jones, too. That’s the first time LSU has felt the threat of the emerging Aggies.
A couple weeks ago, former Auburn receiver Ja’Quay Williams committed to Texas A&M. Ja’Quay decommitted from Auburn and was thought to be leaning Georgia’s direction. But Texas A&M came out of nowhere and scooped him up.
Currently, the Aggies are ranked 7th in the country in recruiting, according to Rivals.com, and they aren’t showing any signs of slowing down either.
With a great coach, a passionate fan base and a great conference, look for the Aggies to continue to flex their muscles in the near-distant future.
