COLLEGE STATION- Texas A&M University has secured the final piece of their already impressive 2014 class in a four star running back out of Georgia. The school was quick out of the gate recruiting this year and the last minute addition is an important pick up for the Aggies.
“You can’t help but pay attention to the statistics this kid has put up.” said Clarence McKinnney, running back coach for Texas A&M. “He is 34-3 in his career, you just can’t ignore a winner like that.”
The running back will be a building block in what is already a very impressive offense. According to reports from Rivals and 247Sports he is a physical specimen capable of hitting the hole fast and aggressively.
“He is still a young player and growing very quickly. We are definitely open to moving him to a different position depending on how he develops.” said McKinney.
The Georgia four star has impressive strength and agility. Recruiting highlights indicate he has great vision and a real mean streak.
“He is all lean muscle with a strong core and excellent balance. The kid is a thoroughbred—a real animal.” said Brad Clemens, his former jockey.
Some are skeptical as to how an actual racehorse will fare in SEC football, but Texas A&M has been known to take risks in the past.
Everyone remembers how the school took a player recruited as a safety and turned him into a Heisman winner. Turning a horse into a football player shouldn’t be much different.
“If Air Bud could play basketball then this horse can play football.” said McKinney.
As of press time, it is rumored that PETA has planned a protest outside the Bright Football Complex . They claim that Texas A&M utilizing both a horse and players, which PETA argues are essentially treated as animals, is both abusive and dangerous.
Although PETA officials admit they are a little excited about the possibility of seeing a horse play football.
