Speedy shocks with A&M
Noil had plenty of chatter surrounding Thursday's decision, with various made its way around the recruiting trail, but in the end, the number two receiver in America in the Class of 2014 landed on the Aggies, throwing up TAMU gloves on ESPN.
The Edna Karr phenom, who almost exclusively played quarterback on the prep level, has enjoyed a great week of practices as an outside receiver in Orlando during the Under Armour festivities, drawing rave reviews.
"His nickname is ‘Speedy' for a reason, but you could also throw in ‘Mr. Explosive' or ‘Plays much bigger than he is' to counter it," Scout.com recruiting analyst John Garcia Jr. wrote in a recent evaluation. "He does it all, despite a 5-foot-11 frame. It was evident all day in how much separation he always seems to have on the defender, but he proved his true worth by leaping over two taller defenders for a score in the combo route drill. Even parents of other All-Americans simply said ‘wow' upon seeing it."
"The biggest thing for me and A&M is Coach [Kevin] Sumlin," he told Scout's Chad Simmons this week. "He is a cool coach, he is fun to be around, and I like him a lot. The offense is one I like too because of how I could be used. I think I could get the ball a lot of ways there."
