HOUSTON (CBS-Houston) – Johnny Manziel, Heisman Trophy winner and one of the most electrifying football players in college football history, is now in the NFL; so are Jake Matthews and Mike Evans. What’s eyebrow-raising is that all three were taken in the first round of the draft.

That’s not a bad resume line if you’re Head Coach Kevin Sumlin. He can also add these. For only the second time in school history, three Aggies were selected in the first round of the NFL Draft. It’s the fourth time the program has produced two top-ten selections. Here’s a footnote the Aggies will circle in red; Texas A&M was the only school to have two players selected in the top 10.

However, as the NFL Draft ends, the college football recruiting battles continue at a more expeditious pace. Aggie football coaches such as running backs coach, Clarence McKinney, are out on the front lines seeking talent to fill the gaps. They have a message to deliver to young and talented high school players who they’ve identified with the potential to play football at Texas A&M.

McKinney lends insight about the departure of Manziel, the questions posed from NFL coaches and GM’s, and how the Aggies look to fill the shoes of the departed through recruiting.
