The Aggies hosted their biggest recruiting weekend of the year on Saturday. Both current commits and prospective recruits gathered in Aggieland to take in the sights and watch the #14 Aggies host #3 Ole Miss. The game itself turned out to be a dud as the Aggies got steamrolled by the Rebels. While this is certainly less than ideal with the nation as well as several impressionable recruits watching, Coach Sumlin was still able to make the most of things.
It wasn’t just the game that recruits were there to see. They came to check out the facilities, see the monstrous Kyle Field, and experience the 12th man in full force. And the fans didn’t disappoint. Over 110,000 crazed Aggies filled the stadium setting not only an SEC attendance record, but also a state Texas record. Yep, Kyle Field housed more fans than the Cowboys or Texans ever have. Recruits took notice too. Below are just a few of the comments made following their visit.
