Oklahoma RB Makes It Official

12thFan said on Monday to not be surprised if Texas A&M picked up a commitment from a certain Muskogee tailback from the state of Oklahoma. And just about 15 minutes ago, it became official. The Aggies have added <b>Pete Richardson</b> to their 2005 recruiting class.

"I called Coach (Chris) Thurmond and told him I wanted to be an Aggie," Pete Richardson said. "He went over everything with me and I told him, 'Yes, I want to jump aboard.'"

According to the Midlands Hot 50 prospect, the Maroon and White recruited him as an athlete.

"Coach Thurmond said I could come in there and play wherever I wanted -- that I could play a lot of different positions."

Expect the 5-9.5, 180-pounder (with 4.42 speed) to try out at running back, cornerback, kick and punt returns and possible even wide receiver.

"Tell the A&M fans that when I come in next year, get ready for us, because we're going to be really good."
