    On defense, we're losing a 2 LB's and a DB that were great contributors and possibly Demontre Moore.

    Kingsbury did a pretty good job for us, but he's just 3 years removed from being a G.A. at UofH and this past season was his first as an OC. Prior to coming to A&M he was a Co-OC with Jason Phillips who's now at SMU.
    Moving up so quickly in ones career is not always a blessing.

    Good for him. 3 years ago he was making $20,000 a year, now he's making 100 times as much. One of Leach's first really productive QBs.

    TAMU is currently ranked #7 on Rivals with 34 commits. they have 15 4 *. TAMU is currently ranked #1 on Scouts with 2 5* and 15 4*.

    I don't think recruiting talent is a problem. how they will develop under Sumlin remains to be seen.

    as mentioned before, TAMU is in prime real estate for recruitment. with their instant success in the SEC this season, I expect them to be in the Top 10 in recruiting rankings for awhile.

    OTOH, a school can consistently be in the top 10 nationally and still be 5th in the SEC.

    Especially if you are number 7 and 4 other SEC schools are ahead of you.

    Texas Tech hires Texas A&M Offensive Coordinator for head coach

    If he can give them winning records, bowl games, and an occasional run for the conference title, they will be happy in Lubbock.
