The cycle continues for the Texas A&M football program as players graduate and move on to the NFL, while new recruits are brought in to try to replace the departed talent. The Aggies have multiple top recruits who will break out and make a name for themselves during the 2014 season.
Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin and his staff have done a tremendous job of adding talent to the program since they arrived in December of 2011. The Aggie coaching staff has signed consecutive top 10 recruiting classes.
The Aggies are building the kind of depth needed to compete at an elite level in the SEC. In order to consistently compete on the field with LSU and Alabama, you need to be three deep at every position.
In 2012, the Aggies' first season in the SEC, they had great starters but nothing behind them on the depth chart. In 2013 their depth improved, but it was a very young team. In 2014 they should have improved depth and better experience across the board.
The Aggies are still going to be a young team, but the experienced gained during the 2013 season should pay off on the field in 2014.
This is a look at some former blue-chip recruits who will become difference-makers in 2014.
