The BCS era started in 1999, and Texas A&M has signed its fair share of top recruits. The Aggies haven't always been the dominant recruiting power they are now, but they've done well for themselves in the past.
College Station and Kyle Field are great places to be, which is part of the reason why Texas A&M signed a great dual-threat quarterback in 2002. A pair of franchise offensive tackles came in 2010, while a running back in the 1999 class was a good one coming out of high school.
Also, keep in mind this list focuses on recruiting. That means studs like quarterback Johnny Manziel and defensive end Von Miller were left off due to not being top-rated recruits in high school.
