Frank Iheanacho (Houston, Texas Westside) committed to the Texas A&M Aggies at the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Saturday afternoon over the LSU Tigers and Oregon Ducks.
Iheanacho is the No. 86 player in the 247Sports composite rankings and the No. 11 wide receiver recruit. Some schools were recruiting Iheanacho as a tight end in the mold of a Jimmy Graham or Antonio Gates, but Iheanacho wants to play receiver in college which is where A&M will use him.
The 6-7 receiver is a bit raw considering he has a basketball background and didn’t play football his junior year of high school before returning to the gridiron as a senior but the 220-pound wide receiver with a 6-11 wingspan simply dominated as he brought down 16 touchdowns.
The Aggies lose the 6-5 Mike Evans to the NFL but essentially fill his roster spot with a player two inches taller and with fellow incoming freshman wide receiver Speedy Noil and quarterback Kyle Allen headed to College Station this year, the trio could form quite the nucleus for Kevin Sumlin’s club in the post-Johnny Manziel era.
He was recruited by Clarence McKinney and David Beaty to A&M.
