One of the expected visitors for Texas A&M's season-opening showdown with Florida who wasn't able to make the trip was Westlake (La.) High School junior tight end Jacory Washington.

And though he wasn't present for the festivities, Washington said he likes the Aggies, who are one of a dozen schools that have offered scholarships.

"I really like the Aggies," Washington said. "There's no top five because I'm keeping everything open. But they have a really nice coaching staff. I like all the coaches and we hit it off real well. Real, real nice facilities. Great fan base, just an all-around great program."
