Aggies pull in Texas' top prospect
By Chris Low
Johnny Manziel has some newfound celebrity status after winning the Heisman Trophy, and he's also getting a new receiver target.
Ricky Seals-Jones, the top prospect in the state of Texas and No. 13 nationally on the ESPN 150 list, announced Monday that he would sign with Texas A&M. The 6-5, 230-pound Seals-Jones could end up playing a number of different positions in college.
Manziel's future recruiting stable is coming along nicely. In addition to Seals-Jones, Fork Union (Va.) Military Academy's Ja'Quay Williams, Cedar Hill (Texas) High School's Quincy Adeboyejo, Manvel (Texas) High School's Kyrion Parker and Honolulu Saint Louis School's Jeremy Tabuyo are also receiver commitments in the 2013 class. Athlete commits LaQuvionte Gonzalez (Cedar Hill), Cameron Echols-Luper (Auburn, Ala./Auburn) and tight end commit Derrick Griffin (Rosenberg, Texas/Terry) could all wind up as receivers as well.
That's not to mention Mike Evans, who led the Aggies in receiving this season as a redshirt freshman with 75 catches for 1,022 yards.
