Twitter Reacts to 5-Star WR Ricky Seals-Jones Commitment to Texas A&M

Top high school recruit Ricky Seals-Jones has made it official: The 5-star prospect will be attending Texas A&M in the fall of 2013 (per Sam Khan of ESPN). 

Seals-Jones was one of the most sought-after recruits this year. He was a do-it-all athlete for his high school team, spending time at quarterback, wide receiver, safety and special teams. Despite that versatility, he is going to play wide receiver in college.

In addition to Texas A&M, Seals-Jones had offers from several top schools, including LSU, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon and Stanford. 

As is always the case when a high-profile recruit makes a decision like this, the social media reaction is just as informative and entertaining as the actual announcement itself. Here is what the analysts have to say about Seals-Jones' decision.

Of course, if you are going to look for an enthusiastic response from someone involved in the recruiting process, who better to go to than Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin?

Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports summed up the weekend for Texas A&M, which also included a Heisman Trophy for freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel on Saturday night:

Kris Hughes of Rant Sports sees Seals-Jones' decision as being the first big chip to fall in an offseason that should be filled with good news for the Aggies:

Angel Verdejo of the Houston Chronicle wrote that Seals-Jones will not keep his two-sport status going as he moves to the college ranks:

Mark Dore of The Battalion, which is the official student newspaper for Texas A&M, brought up how much the Aggies have won this weekend without ever stepping onto the field:

Indeed, it seems it was. And there should be plenty more successful weekends to come for the Aggies.

Billy Liucci of talked about the remarkable job that Sumlin has done recruiting in just one year on the job. 

Jeff Howe of 24/7 Sports wrote that regardless of where Seals-Jones ends up playing, the Aggies are going to be thrilled with the football player they got. 

Jeff Tarpley of talked about the unique athleticism of Seals-Jones and his new teammate Mike Evans, who just had 72 receptions and 1,055 yards as a freshman, and what it does for them on the field. also provided a quick snapshot of the new recruiting rankings after Seals-Jones announced that he was going to be attending Texas A&M.

Considering the success of the Aggies, that ranking could keep going up the deeper we get into recruiting season. 

Finally, Texas A&M student Doug Chipponeri provided a glimpse at the ridiculous size of all the Aggies wide receivers that the SEC has the misfortune of trying to cover starting in 2013. 

If anyone was worried about the Aggies falling off a cliff, or being a one-year wonder, landing a player like Seals-Jones to go with all those big weapons on the outside, not to mention the progression of Manziel, should alleviate those fears.
