Top Texas A&M recruit misses 

January, 22, 2013
Looking back at Texas A&M’s recent recruiting misses.

No. 1 Jorrie Adams, offensive tackle, 2003: At 6-foot-7, 275 pounds, Adams had an impressive offer list. In addition to A&M, Oklahoma, LSU, Florida and Miami (a team that was routinely putting out first-round NFL draft picks at the time) were among those that pursued the five-star tackle out of Jasper (Texas) High School. The U.S. Army All-American with NFL size wound up playing defensive line as a freshman and was dismissed from the team in the summer of 2005 for violating team rules. He eventually wound up at Angelo State.

No. 2 Rod Davis, defensive tackle, 2008: The 6-2, 300-pound Davis was a ballyhooed recruit out of Houston Eisenhower, ranking No. 143 in the ESPN 150 and No. 6 nationally among defensive tackles. He was a signing day decision, choosing the Aggies over Texas. The Under Armour All-American originally chose the Aggies early in the process but reopened his recruitment after a coaching change. Florida was also among the schools that offered Davis in the recruiting process.
