No doubt. I just figured he would choose a team with a bigger need/less crowded QB position.

That position is far from crowded.

I would worry about team chemistry if he came this year. Both DJ and CR have been here for a full year and there is a healthy QB competition going on. DJ seems to have recovered from all accounts. I'd honestly rather go with who we have now.

And this could be being done just to send a message too!

I don't think the QB position is crowded, I'd welcome one more 4*.

Wow, what a quiet posting weekend, especially with the public scrimmage in Lauderdale and the visitors to it (Celebs, potential TRANSFERS).

Did anyone on here go, did anyone take pics or have an opinion, I have read of one comment so far.

Post people, that is what this is for and RECRUITS AND FAMILIES DO READ THIS STUFF. WE KNOW PRESIDENT KELLY DOES!

Here is some CUSA recruiting news, an article on North Texas and their situation;

College Sports: UNT football recruits with least money of Texas public schools; how do other schools break down? | SportsDay''

Intersting read!

That is pretty interesting. I would have thought UT is king of revenue and expenses just like UF. A & M contributions are double UT. That really surprised me. A & M according that article had a surplus and UT ran a deficit with about the same revenue.

Two reasons.  
1)A&M has the best Petroleum Engineering program in the country.  Lots of oil money flows their way from alumni and the companies that they work for.  They just completed a 1/2 billion renovation of Kyle Field funded by donations.  
2) Loyalty, tradition, love of campus, real bonds of Aggie friendships.  As a visitor you can spend an hour on campus and you will be greeted with "Howdy" numerous times and students will come up to you to see if they can help you find your way. The midnight yells before football game have 30,000 in attendance.  The Silver Taps ceremony held each month to honor the Aggies that were recently lost. The Muster held each year across the world in April where Aggies congregate to unite the current Aggies in each area with the ones came before them.  The Corps step off from the Quad before each home game.  
In most other contexts, the use of tradition as a motivator seems almost contrived.  At College Station, however, it is a real and tangible thing that makes the school and alumni totally unique.

Wish we would have got this kid.

Iím just nervous about the QBís because they are so inexperienced and they both have others issues with either health or off the field issues.
