Texas A&M Aggies: Justice Hansen

With the spring evaluation period fully underway, Texas A&M assistant coaches have been visiting high schools throughout the state and the country to check in on commitments, current targets and potential future targets in recruiting.

With the spring evaluation period underway, Texas A&M is making sure to cast its recruiting net far and wide.

Both on the field and in recruiting, quarterback is a position that receivers close attention. In the 2014 class, Texas A&M has offered two, but the first one the Aggies offered -- ESPN Watch List quarterback Justice Hansen -- chose Oklahoma over the Aggies on Saturday.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Throughout their successful 2012 season, the buzz around Texas A&M football built each week. It crescendoed after the Aggies defeated Alabama and peaked when the Aggies' quarterback, Johnny Manziel, won the Heisman Trophy. They kept that buzz going with a resounding win over Oklahoma in the AT&T Cotton Bowl.

That buzz has had a clear affect on Texas A&M recruiting and Kevin Sumlin and the Aggies' staff is doing what they can to ensure the buzz continues. In some instances, it's tricks or tactics that the Aggies use themselves, like when they trotted out a live disc jockey for the "Friday Night Lights" scrimmage last week.

The Nike Football Training Camp series will continue outside of Dallas on Sunday. Athletes will trek to Allen, Texas, the home of one of the most impressive high school stadiums in the country. Allen Eagles Stadium, a $60-million facility, opened last year and featured nearly 22,000 fans watching Texas powers Allen and Southlake Carroll clash.

Here are five storylines to watch on Sunday.

Talented DBs aplenty

It’s been said on multiple occasions that the 2014 class may be one of the strongest in years at producing big-time defensive backs in the region. The battle for defensive back MVP has the potential of being extremely competitive with players such as Laurence Jones (Monroe, La./Neville), Jamal Adams (Lewisville, Texas/Hebron), Tony Brown (Beaumont, Texas/Ozen), Steven Parker (Jenks, Okla./Jenks) and Arrion Springs (San Antonio/Roosevelt) expected to be in attendance. Chris Hardeman (Houston/Alief Taylor) has committed to LSU, while Dylan Sumner-Gardner (Mesquite, Texas/West Mesquite) and Armani Watts (Forney, Texas/North Forney) have pledged to Texas A&M. Deionte Thompson (Orange, Texas/West Orange-Stark), a 2015 prospect, has verbally committed to Alabama. All of the DBs will have their shots in one-on-one drills against equally talented ESPN Watch List receivers such as Malachi Dupre (River Ridge, La./John Curtis), K.D. Cannon (Mount Pleasant, Texas/Mount Pleasant) and Texas commit Lorenzo Joe (Abilene, Texas/Cooper).

It might be going too far to say ESPN Watch List quarterback Justice Hansen (Edmond, Okla./Santa Fe) is sheltered, but he doesn’t get a chance to see many schools.

A frequent visitor to Oklahoma and currently the Sooners only offer at the position, spring break allowed Hansen to venture outside the Sooner State as he visited Texas A&M on Tuesday.

Hansen was offered by the Aggies in January, and he said the school has been on his mind for a long time because they were one of his first offers.
