A&M Recruiting Targets in Baton Rouge

A lot is on the line for the Texas Aggie football team this weekend as they battle the LSU on Saturday. Not only is a potential BCS bowl berth on the line, but the outcome on the field could affect where future prospects will go to school. Here's a rundown of the top A&M targets expected in Baton Rouge this weekend.

A lot is on the line for the Texas Aggie football team this weekend as they battle the LSU Tigers in Baton Rouge. Not only is a potential BCS bowl berth on the line, but with the Aggies and Tigers going head-to-head on several recruits, the outcome on the field could affect where future prospects will go to school. Here's a rundown of the top A&M targets expected in Baton Rouge this weekend.

Houston Westside WR Frank Iheanacho, who has become a high priority target for the Aggies with other receiver targets leaning elsewhere, will be taking an official visit to LSU this weekend. Because LSU is openly recruiting him as a tight end, it would be a little bit of an upset if LSU overtakes A&M as his leader after the weekend. In fact, his parents aren't coming on the trip so that has to make you wonder how serious the Tigers are on his list. Iheanacho will probably take another visit or two before he chooses at the Army Game in San Antonio...but his relationship with Ifedi and the opportunity to take over Mike Evans' spot gives A&M the current lead.

As far as unofficial visits, three big 2014 A&M targets will be at the game...

DL Gerald Willis
WR Speedy Noil
CB Tony Brown

The general buzz from the bayou suggests that Gerald Willis will be a tough get at this point. Speedy Noil appears to be a more realistic target because he does like the A&M offense, but the usual LSU factor is in play. But, a strong performance by the A&M offense could sway him to the maroon side. Tony Brown still plans to take an official visit to A&M regardless of what happens tomorrow. LSU still seems to be the odds-on favorite, but I keep hearing that Coach Henry is keeping the Aggies in the hunt and Coach Sumlin has taken a personal interest in his recruitment.

Several 2015 Louisiana prospects on A&M's radar will be there, most notably LB Arthur McGinnis and Easton HS teammate Deshawn Capers-Smith. There are others but those are the highlighters.
