The Texas A&M football program is celebrating one of its most successful national signing days ever. The Aggies brought in one of the top recruiting classes in the country, which will allow them to compete for SEC and national championships.
Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin and his staff have used the Aggies' position as the only SEC school in Texas to their advantage. They have sold recruits on the opportunity to play in the top conference in the country while still remaining close to home.
Sumlin did an outstanding job in 2014 of going out of state and cherry-picking elite recruits to supplement the in-state talent. He reeled in multiple nationally ranked prospects from other states.
This class was ranked No. 5 by 247Sports.com. The Aggies' 2013 class was ranked No. 8 in the nation by 247Sports.com. You build an elite program in the SEC by stacking top-10 recruiting classes on top of each other, and that is exactly what Sumlin and the Aggies are doing.
This is a position-by-position breakdown of the Aggies' 2014 recruiting class.
