2019 Recruiting Board/Thread

Recommended Posts

Bragg may be the most important recruit to get.  We need a stud Center in the worst way.  He could come in and RS and take over as a RS Freshman for 4 years.  He's that good IMO.  We haven't had a stud Center since Lyle Sendlein.

Board rumors are mom isn't on board yet with Texas.  Dad is all Texas.  I think Bragg wants to stay close to home as well.  Make it happen Hand and Herman.

Word is mom wants him to stay close to home, so that plays into Texas’ hand.

Is Texas A&M Commerce the former Texas A&M Kingsville?  Wow!

I never lived in Kingsville, but worked there for 3 years. It would be a terrible place to go to school, imo. Nothing to do. It is depressing. 

But OTOH, I can see why a young man would be grateful when a program reaches out to them with one of their scholarships. 

Before A&M absorbed Texas A&I, Texas A&I had a proud and distinguished program with great success under Gil Steinke. A&M, when they took over, took credit (absorbed) for much of that success, crediting it to A&M. Not so much as a footnote to Texas A&I. 

What can I say?  Aggie culture.

Was just joking with another assimilated AM campus.  Different schools....commerce was East Tx St and Kingsvle was Texas A&I I believe.

No, East Texas State University, my alma mater, class of 73 BBA. 

When A&M took it over, they wanted to know if I wanted a new diploma. I was polite about it but the answer wasn't just NO, and it wasn't just HELL, NO! I'll leave it to your imagination to figure out what it really was :)
