We all knew it was inevitable, it was just a matter of time before it was made official. On Monday the nation’s number one athlete prospect and top wide receiver Ricky Seals-Jones announced he was going to play for the Texas A&M Aggies, the 34th commitment for the team in the 2013 recruiting class.
The decision came down to two teams for Seals-Jones, the Aggies and LSU Tigers. The Texas Longhorns, a team Seals-Jones committed to in February then decomitted in June, ended their pursuit in September.
The Aggies are looking to stack up on top recruits for their second year in the SEC and beyond. Seals-Jones is the best recruit the Aggies have been able to land this year, but below him are some talented players in their own right. Arguably one of, if not the top wide receiver in the class JaQuay Williams committed to the Aggies earlier this month. The Aggies have also landed top five receiver prospect Derrick Griffin, as well as top defensive tackle Justin Manning and linebacker Kenny Flowers on the other side of the ball.
Seals-Jones will have to fight for a spot at receiver (five wide receivers already committed), but there should be no problem getting the talented athlete on the field. He’s a type of player you create packages for and get the ball in his hands as many times as possible. Seals-Jones is a without a doubt a play maker, the guy that other defenses will try and key on but will be hard to stop.
I see Seals-Jones making an immediate impact for the Aggies. With his talent and Heisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel throwing him the ball, it’s hard not think that the Aggies will be contending for an SEC championship, even quite possibly a national championship, in the very near future.
