*2022 DB Bobby Taylor - Katy (Katy, TX): “The SEC has the best football in the nation, don’t blame them for wanting to come and join but I’m not worried about them. We’ll take those 15 yards penalties because it’s still horns down."

Aggies In The NFL; 'Miller Time' In Denver

During week 2 of the young NFL season, several Aggies shined on the field.

2022 DL Aaron Bryant - Southaven (Southaven, MS): "I feel like it Would be great for football because it would just make the SEC more competitive and we’d be able to see great historic rivalry’s spark up again."

2022 DL Jadon Scarlett - Argyle (Argyle, TX): "I’m surprised to hear the news. I thought OU and Texas would stay big 12, but if they join it’ll make the SEC a bit more interesting."

2022 OT Malik Agbo - Todd Beamer (Federal Way, WA): "Yeah I think it’s a pretty interesting decision, but I am really excited to see the outcome and how things play out now!!!"

2022 DL KJ Miles - St. Peters Prep (Jersey City, NJ): "This is great for the two programs moving to a more competitive conference but most recruit nation to find the best players because the Ga and Bama recruit national talent yr after yr! Also, the sec facilities are top-notch from top to bottom. The Big 12 is the loser if this happens from a big-name perspective. But I guess it's an opportunity for other schools to rise."

2023 RB Rueben Owens - El Campo (El Campo, TX): "It would be good to know another in-state program is in such a competitive conference. I think it would add credibility for a lot of recruits nationally."

2023 DE Jayden Wayne - Lincoln (Tacoma, WA): "I think that would change a lot. SEC is the best conference so that would make it more competitive. I love it."

2023 ATH Bruce Mitchell - Lonestar (Frisco, TX): "I’m excited about it. Iron sharpens iron so the opportunity to compete against the best in the country in the best conference is definitely something I’m interested in!!"

2023 WR/TE Ethan Davis - Collins Hill (Suwanee, GA): "It's crazy, two more powerhouse schools joining a powerhouse conference. It was just unexpected"
