Recruiting is the lifeblood of any college football program. Before they became greats on the field, many of Texas A&M's greatest players started off as unknown recruits who were not expected to do much in Aggieland. The opposite is also true, as many of the highest ranked recruits never lived up to their hype on the field.
Recruiting is not an exact science. An entire industry has sprung up around recruiting, as various pundits attempt to rank the recruits and project their future successes in college and the NFL.
On the other end of the spectrum are the recruits that are hyped beyond belief coming out of high school. They are considered "can't miss" prospects, and whoever signs them will surely achieve football nirvana for the next three years until they continue on their pre-ordained path to the NFL.
This is a look at the latter group of recruits. This is a look at the most highly thought of recruits coming out of high school who ended up signing with Texas A&M.
