The Texas A&M Football team currently has the No. 1 rated recruiting class in the nation for 2014. If the Aggies want to have the No. 1 class on signing day, then head coach Kevin Sumlin and his staff are going to have to convince a few more of the nation's top recruits to come into the fold.
Recruiting rankings are ever-changing. When Aggie signee Ricky-Seals Jones decommitted from Texas in June of 2012 he was ranked as the top wide receiver recruit in the country and a top 10 national recruit.
By the time Seals-Jones signed with the Ags in February, he had dropped down to the No. 8 wide receiver recruit and No. 61 overall. Seals-Jones played quarterback and wide receiver as a senior at Sealy (TX) High School and evidently dropped because he was injured for much of the year.
It is impossible to accurately predict who will finish with the No. 1 ranked class in eight months in advance. The rankings of the individual recruits change as the "experts" fall into and out of love with multiple prospects.
Some recruits will see their rankings skyrocket, while others will see them tumble. Sometimes this will happen without the recruit playing in an actual game.
College coaches just have to hope that they can identify and sign the best players for their systems. The Aggies are off to a nice start in the 2014 class with 14 players committed who will fill some of their needs.
The Ags will have to finish strong if they want to have the top ranked class in February. This is a look at some of the recruits the Aggies have to land in order to have the No. 1 class on signing day.
