January Jr day before signing day is pretty aggressive. Continuing the strategy of being the earliest to get on these kids.
Would be very disappointing to see Whitley commit.
Surprised to see that they think the Sopt DT Mack is a high probability for a commitment. The report that came out 2 days ago said he's a long ways away from making a decision.
This was also surprising
Solomon Thomas - DE - Coppell (LA) - 247Composite Ranking: 19 - Thomas already holds offers from the likes of Stanford, Texas, A&M and LSU. Texas was considered the favorite early on but the Ags 2012 season really opened the eye of the 4-star edge rusher and have pulled ahead of the Longhorns. This will be Thomas' first visit to A&M
Pulled ahead of Texas ?
Hell no!! Solomon will be a Horn - he has loved the Horns since he was small.
Agreed...with all the LB's they have this year and the two they have for 2014 it seems like Sumlin is just taking another to show us he can do it.
dont take this report too seriously..i have found many incorrect statements throughout hamm's report towards the BU recruits...and who we have and have not offered..double check before buying his aggie slant on everything.
It's either going to be us or Stanford for Thomas. I think we win due to the friendships he has made with Gresham, Knox & Heard.
Now I think is as good a time as any to remind everyone of this quote of his. Any hope to be viewed as "impartial" flew out the window with this one...

Johnny will look good in one of those really cool "Committed" shirts Baylor has out now.
All kidding aside, Baylor's 2013 class is not even in the same realm as A&M's. It won't be comparable at all, at any point during this recruiting cycle to A&M's, and if Sumlin wanted to poach any one of their current commits he could at any moment. So far, outside Jefferson, who's undoubtedly replaceable, Sumlin has passed on every one of their current pledges. Chris Johnson wants to be an Aggie in the worst way.Things will get worse from here on out in Waco. They got absolutely embarrassed by a 6-6 A&M team last year, caught OU and Texas while they were down, and they lose their Heisman trophy winner and leading receiver. Once the season starts and the cubbies struggle, which they will, all their momentum will be lost. Or if they land a big-time prospect, or an under the radar player like Adrian Colbert, schools like Texas or Oklahoma will pull the robbery Jersey Shore style. Plus they are stuck in the drowning Big-12 conference where they will always be stuck playing their favorite playschool game...Follow the leader
umm ok? I wasnt saying anything about all of that..but cool?
So... why haven't the Ags pulled Robbie Rhodes then, huh Hamm? All-time classic post imo

Just wanting to reinforce your point that as "objective" as Hamm tries to paint himself, he still has an aggy brain.
I'm agreeing with ya, my man.
EDIT: what I quoted was a post by Hamm, not my thouights.

okay i was confused as to what the hell was going on. ya hamm is a jackass in the biggest way. guy has to get his subscribers something to eat on.
Obviously we can't pull Robbie anytime we wanted. Was that post of his made before Rhodes committed? Would make a lot more sense if so.
Every site's moderators have their bias to an extent. It would make sense for the national writers to try and be 100% objective, but what's the point of a team mod to do so? If your team is struggling on the field on or in recruiting, you want to keep your subscribers happy by giving them hope. If your team is awesome on the field and pulling in a a really good recruiting class, you want to reinforce how awesome the school/team is to pull in new subscribers/fans.
the soph DT Mack was quoted yesterday saying that he was wondering why BU hasnt given him any looks like other schools.. Hamm says BU offered him?
furthermore hamm says
""Davion Hall - ATH - Liberty Eylau -247Sports Composite Ranking: 118 - Will be attending Baylor’s junior day this weekend instead. The Bears are considered the early leader with A&M slightly behind (with room to make up).""
Baylor's junior day is not even this weekend jackass!
Ya, I want someone to blow smoke up my ass and be lied to, that sounds like something I want to be a part of.
Damn, you must love texags.
Uhh, what are you talking about?
Please. Hamm is hack the likes of only Ketch, Chip Brown and Soul Patch Lucci can appreciate. I'm mildly tempted to pass judgement on anyone willing to pay $10 a month to hear read anything he writes.
Anyone have any of his posts from the Malcom Brown/Tim Cole recruitments saved by chance? I can't remember what they were verbatim, but moral of the story, the dude basically ended up taking a shit in his mouth. T'was gold if I do recall correctly.
