The Texas A&M coaching staff wasted little time in replacing all-American receiver Mike Evans when 6-foot-6, 220-pound four-star prospect Frank Iheanacho announced he will be playing for Kevin Sumlin and the Aggies next season.

Texas A&M jumbo receiver Mike Evans had been Johnny Manziel's number one pass catching target for the past two years. Two days ago, the 6-foot-5 Evans announced he would forego his final two seasons and head to the NFL.

The Texas A&M coaching staff wasted little time in replacing the all-American receiver when 6-foot-6, 220-pound four-star prospect Frank Iheanacho announced he will be playing for Kevin Sumlin and the Aggies next season.

The Houston Westside product started his high school career as a basketball player, but transitioned to football his final two years. In fact, Iheanacho was not on anybody's recruiting radar heading into his senior campaign. But when his high school coach sent out his three-game highlight tape in September, just about every major program immediately offered including Texas A&M.

The early offer combined with an existing friendship with Texas A&M starting OL Germain Ifedi and the opportunity to replace Evans and play close to him were all factors in his decision.

Iheanacho's commitment gives the Aggies two nationally-elite pass catchers in the past two days. On Thursday, Texas A&M garnered the commitment of five-star mid-term burner Speedy Noil.
