Dubbed the "Twin Towers" by their teammates. Evangel's Brandon Jackson and Jermauria Rasco took in the sights and sounds of Kyle Field this weekend. Jackson and Rasco arrived in College Station around noon on Saturday so they could take in everything Aggieland has to offer.

"I really enjoyed it. We got there at noon so I had a chance to go into the locker room and talk to some of the guys I have established good relationships with, guys like Von Miller, K.J. Williams, and Jerrod. I wanted to show Rasco all the great guys I am going to be teammates with next year and continue to build relationships with the coaches."

"I talked to all the coaches. Coach Wyatt talked to me for a few minutes and we talked about next year and what they wanted to do with me. Right now they want to keep me at the 3 technique position, which is where I feel the most comfortable, but if they were to move me it would be to the strong end position."

Jackson feels A&M is the perfect fit for him.

"I was shocked to see all of the freshmen playing at such a high level. I can only imagine how this team is going to be next year. The coaches said I have a really good shot at coming in and starting next year. Thats one reason why I chose A&M. Not only will I get to play early, but I have a chance to contribute for the team. Its like a perfect storm."

Jackson has a very unique relationship with teammate Jermauria Rasco and the two would like to play together in college.

"Jermauria is such a freak athlete. He is so soft spoken off the field, but he lets his play do the talking on the field. He moved into third place in sacks all-time with his 38th of his career this past week. He has a goal to break the school record in sacks that currently stands at 57. He is only a junior and we have only played 3 games this year so I think he has a very good shot at breaking the record."

Jackson and Rasco had a long talk on the way back to Shreveport about their visit.

"A&M immediately moved up on Jermauria's list after this weekend. Actually we already planned on making it to another game this year. He was blown away with the campus and the facilities. He is starting to become really good friends with the same guys I am. He wants to major in business and the coaches talked to him about the Mays school and how good it is. We would like to play together on Saturdays. I wouldn't say I am pressuring him but I am trying really hard to get him to play at A&M. He has to feel comfortable with the town and situation because thats where he is going to be living for the next four years. I told him he would be able to come in and play immediately. He saw how many freshman were out there and I think he knows he can come in and make a huge impact as a freshman."

Brandon and Jermauria could potentially be a dominant force for the aggies down the road. Jackson is going to continue to do his part, but Rasco will be highly recruited by some of the most elite schools in the country. The "Twin Towers" would be a tremendous addition for the Aggies in a few years.
