Aggies add Texas Top-100 RB

With offers from two other Big 12 schools, Lamar (TX) running back Kalvin Guyton pulled the trigger on Monday. Aggie Websider's Dallas Shipp visits with the Texas Top-100 athlete about his decision and why he chose the Aggies.

With offers on the table from A&M, Baylor, Houston, Minnesota and Nebraska, Texas Top-100 running back Kalvin Guyton decided to pull the trigger on Monday, announcing his commitment to Texas A&M.

"They've got a good football program that I think is coming up real soon and they produce a lot of players into the NFL which is where I want to be," Guyton said. "It's got a good vibe and it's right down the street from home."

Guyton, who listed Minnesota as his favorite last month, also said that the Texas A&M coaching staff's experience in the NFL had a lot to do with his decision.

"All of the coaches have something to do with the NFL and they all know what they're talking about and they know how to get to get you to the next level," he said.

After participating in the Houston Texans' 7-on-7 competition late last month, Guyton says he's spent most of his time running and lifting weights, preparing for his senior season at Lamar, posting a 4.46 40-yard dash in the process, and maxing at at 275 on the bench press.

So how solid is his commitment to the Aggies?

"I still want to take visits and see other places, and I'll sit and listen to what the coach says but I'm focused on A&M," Guyton said. "I don't think they're going to be able to top (the offer from A&M)."

Guyton plans to make the trip to College Station later this week to sit down and visit with the A&M coaches and players who are in town for the summer.
