A&M recruits not worried about Kingsbury

12/14/2012

Texas A&M had the nation's No. 3 offense in terms of offensive yards and scoring, so it's understandable if the loss of offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury is met with some concern.

But several recruits so far don't seem too worried about the Aggies when it comes to Kingsbury, who accepted the head coaching job at Texas Tech on Wednesday and was formally introduced Friday.

So far, the effect on recruiting doesn't appear to be negative. The fact that the Aggies received a commitment from a 2014 receiver just two days after Kingsbury left is a positive sign.

Lufkin (Texas) High School receiver Jamal Jeffery, who was the receiver that committed Friday, had no worries about the offensive coordinator situation.

"I know they'll find another good one," Jeffery said.

Other recruits have echoed that sentiment. ESPN 150 athlete Ricky Seals-Jones, who committed to the Aggies on Monday, said Kingsbury's exit won't affect his status.

"No not at all," Seals-Jones told GigEmNation via text message. "It's still coach [Kevin] Sumlin's offense. I'm 100-percent committed."

Pearland (Texas) Dawson running back James White, who was a finalist for the Houston-area Offensive Player of the Year award from the Houston Touchdown Club on Wednesday, had similar words.

"Not at all, not at all [concerned]," White said. "I'm 100-percent Aggies."
