Recruiting can be a cruel, cruel world. And the Aggies surely are feeling the pain today. If you visit TexasAgs, then you saw when 4-star DE Mark Jackson flipped from A&M to OU. The fans went into panic mode. They even went so far as to say the kid just wouldn’t be good in the SEC. But no worries, their top target was still on the board, safety Brandon Jones.
The Aggies had to feel good about their chances with Brandon. I mean, after all, TexAgs did shell out a ton of money to produce a documentary about him called “On An Island: Brandon Jones.”
From Good Bull Hunting:
So when popular Texas A&M website TexAgs.com used their considerable resources this year to produce a high-quality film about one recruit, a top target for Texas A&M’s 2016 class, the stage was set.
You can watch the trailer HERE. The film documents the process that Jones went through during his recruiting, including interviews with the man himself. The trailer even features an A+ quote.
He’s gonna have to tell everybody no. Except for one.
Well, it turns out that he had to tell A&M no.

Huge plot twist that A&M was not expecting. So many Aggie tears right now. Has to sting that a blue chip player who lives in a town filled with Aggies would rather join a 5-7 team than go to College Station?.
