Alabama is coming to College Station to play the Texas A&M Aggies in arguably the most hyped up game of the season. Texas A&M made waves in its first season in the SEC with a Hesiman Trophy winning quarterback and a Cotton Bowl win over Big 12 powerhouse Oklahoma.
The impact of the move to the SEC for Texas A&M has already been established, now head coach Kevin Sumlin is planning on bringing recruits to the Alabama game.
From the Dallas Morning News:
“It’s already had an impact,” Sumlin said. “We’ve got a large number of prospects that are going to be here. The move to the SEC has been a boost for us. I think it wouldn’t be as big of a boost if we didn’t have some sort of success in the league as we did last year.”
Bringing recruits to the biggest game of the year is a big deal. If you were ever going to try and show case a big Aggies game and the incredible atmosphere at Kyle Field and College Station, that would be the weekend. It could be considered a risky move if the Aggies lose to Alabama. That could have recruits leaving more impressed with Alabama than A&M. On the other side the atmosphere, which surely will be one of a kind and incredible, could be a lot to sway some recruits there way.
