Monday was a great day for Texas A&M fans. The Aggies landed a great wide receiever in Ricky Seals-Jones.
Although many Texas A&M fans are excited that Seals-Jones chose them over man top football programs, fans are especially excited to see Seals-Jones and Johnny Manziel (aka Johnny Football), the freshman Heisman Trophy winner, working together.
“A lot of talent is starting to come there (Texas A&M)…Hopefully we can bring a national championship to A&M,” says Seals Jones.
The 6’5, 230 lbs receiver from Sealy, Texas is the 33rd member of the Aggie’s 2013 recruiting class. According to many experts, Texas A&M is ranked the seventh-best in the FBS, but many believe the recent recruitment of Seals-Jones might boost them up a bit.
Texas A&M’s recruiting has picked up since Kevin Sumlin was hired last winter, but the Aggies 10-win debut, as a member of the SEC, has hit a new gear. Sumlin and his coaching staff have picked up six verbal commitments since November 10, when the Aggies beat No. 1 ranked Alabama 29-24 in Tuscaloosa.
Although many are highly anticipating the new recruits in 2013, nothing is official until national signing day. Seals-Jones commitment will go a long way towards addressing a position of need, receiver, as Texas A&M looks to build up an awesome 2012 season.
The Aggies are looking to give Seals-Jones a lot of responsibility on offense. Texas A&M is loosing Ryan Swope, one of their best receivers in school history, as well as fellow senior Uzoma Nwachukwu. The Texas native joins a young receiver core headlined by freshman Mike Evans.
