When Texas A&M accepted an invitation to join the SEC, it did so with the knowledge that it was going to have to step up its game across the board both on and off the field. That means that the Aggies have to consistently reel in top recruits every single year.
It is no secret that A&M does not currently have the depth on its team to compete with the top programs in the SEC like Alabama and LSU. Kevin Sumlin and his staff are tasked with assembling enough talent for the Aggies to beat those teams.
As the new program in the conference, they need to raise their talent level so they can establish themselves as a threat to win the conference title on an annual basis.
This is a look at why it is important for A&M to sign a top class in February of 2013.
