Ricky Seals-Jones: Odds 5-Star Commits to Texas A&M After His Visit
This will be the third time Seals-Jones will have seen A&M play live recently, which has to be very encouraging for Kevin Sumlin and his staff, considering that they are in Seals-Jones's top two according to 247Sports.
With a win on Saturday, the Aggies can finish the regular season with a 10-2 record, have high expectations for bowl season, and be arguably the most exciting team in college football—led by freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel. The Aggies have a lot to offer the five star wideout, especially considering their dynamic offense. So what are the odds that Seals-Jones commits after his visit?
While the Aggies do appear to be the favorite in the long-term, Sam Khan Jr. of ESPN.com is reporting that Seals-Jones is still planning on taking official visits:
Both trips to LSU and Texas A&M recently were unofficial visits and Seals-Jones' trip back to Kyle Field on Saturday will also be an unofficial. He said Monday that he plans to take official visits to both schools after the season is complete.
"That's what both coaches want," Seals-Jones said. "They said that's the best, when they can show me everything and bring out the red carpet and everything. So I'll probably wait until their season is over with and go see how it is."
Therefore the odds are very low that we'll see a commitment from him this weekend.
Taking these official visits is bound to be a determining factor in his decision, and to be frank, if he was going to rush to a decision, why would he pick the Missouri game of all weekends to do so?
Who has the better chance of landing Seals-Jones?
Committing after his first visit to College Station or even the weekend of the Alabama win would have made more sense because of the emotions involved. The fact that he's yet to commit despite Texas A&M's dominance and popularity as of late leads me to believe that he's committed to the process, and that an official commitment won't happen until after these official visits.
That's not a bad thing for Texas A&M, because they have the most to offer Seals-Jones, but it does offer LSU a bit more time to try to win him over. Still, there's not much to worry about if you're an Aggies fan.
The idea of playing with Manziel in an offense that's currently scoring 43.5 points per game, while still remaining in Texas and playing in the SEC should be too much to pass up on for the 6'5'', 230 pound receiver from Sealy, Texas.
If that's not enough, A&M certainly put themselves in great position to land Seals-Jones with their win over Alabama a few weekends ago.
It's just not going to happen ... yet.
Having already waited this long, why not take the extra time, officially sit down with both programs, and then make a decision?
Unfortunately for Texas A&M, Seals-Jones will likely not make a commitment this weekend.
Fortunately, though, the odds seem to be in their favor when it comes to eventually landing the 5-star wide receiver.
