The Texas A&M Aggies have had a pretty good week. Ricky Seals-Jones, a 6-foot-5, 220-pound five-star wide receiver prospect from Sealy (Texas) High, committed to the Aggies on Monday.
“I am going to verbally commit to be an Aggie,” Seals-Jones said during a press conference at his high school with his father and mother by his side.
This announcement happened only two days after Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel won the Heisman trophy as the first ever freshman to win the award.
Seals-Jones is the #1 rated wide receiver recruit in the country and makes Texas A&M the current No. 1 in Scout.com’s 2013 recruiting class rankings.
Seals-Jones has had a roller coaster of a recruiting process. He committed to Texas in February, only to decommit in June to take a closer look at some other programs.
Schools such as Oregon, UCLA and Baylor tried to make a push, but it was the SEC’s Texas A&M and LSU who emerged as the leaders.
Seals-Jones has been named to the 2012 U.S. Army All-American Team, and though he played both ways in high school, he will likely be a wide receiver at the college level.
Seals-Jones will make the Aggies’ passing attack next year truly lethal. Johnny “Football” Manziel will have a go-to threat in the passing game and with Seals-Jones drawing double teams, Manziel will be able to open things up even more with the run. In the meantime, Manziel will try to bring the Aggies a Cotton Bowl home on Jan. 4 and then the sky will be the limit for them next year.
