Prospect Cites SEC As Reason For Choosing Texas A&M

Colin Blake is technically committed to a Big 12 school.

But the safety from Brandeis High School in San Antonio clearly had the SEC on his mind when he committed to Texas A&M on Tuesday.

The school officially announced last week that it plans to leave the Big 12 by next summer. That has led many to believe the SEC will invite Texas A&M into the conference, perhaps as early as Wednesday.

And that’s a big reason Blake decided to commit to the Aggies.

“I think it makes them more attractive to me because that’s the best conference in college football so I would love to have a chance to play in the SEC,” Blake told AggieYell.com. “They look real good going into the year this year and I think they are going to do well in the Big 12 this year. I like A&M a lot, so I want them to win the Big 12.”

Blake, who’s considered the 14th-best safety in the nation and 23rd-best prospect in the state of Texas by Rivals.com, chose Texas A&M over schools such as Oklahoma, Missouri, Texas Tech, Arizona and California.

Four of Rivals.com’s top 25 players in the state of Texas have committed to Texas A&M for 2012. How many of the top 25 players in Texas did the Aggies sign in 2011? Zero.

We had to suffer through Fran and the subsequent rebuilding of a gutted program. If $Bill had asked me (but he didn't for some strange reason), Fran would have been out of there at the end of Year 2 irrespective of the buyout. Hell, we alums offered to pony up the cash to remove him - more than once!

Now if my Aggies can DO something with the talent. They've been underperforming as a team for a decade now...

Also, A&M not being in the SEC over a month ago was listed as the deciding factor by Dalton Santos when he commited to UT. Look forward to more of this as we would like to contribute to SEC's success. Gig'em
