Up and Down Morning For Aggies

Up and Down Morning For Aggies

It was an up and down Signing Day for Kevin Sumlin and the Texas Aggie football program. Texas A&M went into Wednesday's big day with some unfinished business. Aggie Websider's David Sandhop discusses how the Aggies fared in the morning's race to secure the few remaining targets still undecided.

It was an up and down Signing Day for Kevin Sumlin and the Texas Aggie football program. Texas A&M went into Wednesday's big day with one soft verbal commitment in Bralon Addison, one big uncommitted receiver prospect in No. 1 receiver in the state Thomas Johnson, and a possible high profile switch from Texas in defensive lineman Hassan Ridgeway.

In the end, four-star athlete Bralon Addison picked the Oregon Ducks at his morning signing ceremony while Ridgeway stuck with the Longhorns and faxed his letter of intent to Mack Brown.

However, the disappoints from early in the morning were erased when on national television Dallas Skyline four-star wide receiver Thomas Johnson picked the Aggies. Considered the top receiver in the state and a Top 10 prospect, Johnson has great acceleration off the line and he gains separation in and out of cuts which something that was a weakness with last year's receiver group.

In a big surprise, Texas A&M received the signed letter of intent of Ritenour HS (St. Louis, MO) defensive lineman Edmund Ray, previously committed to Missouri. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound interior lineman addresses a big need for the Aggies with the graduation of three defensive linemen and moving to the 4-3 defensive scheme.

Otherwise, there were no other surprises on Signing Day with the staff adding 15 signees to the four mid-term enrollees already in College Station. While other schools are waiting on a few big name prospects to sign that could change the latest national rankings, it appears the Aggies' class will land somewhere between Top 10-15 in the nation.
