Texas A&M Signs Top 100 Basketball Recruits J'Mychal Reese, Alex Caruso

Coaching turnover didn't prevent the Aggies from continuing their run of basketball recruiting success.

The Texas A&M men's basketball team signed another solid recruiting class Wednesday despite the turnover and tragedy that has affected the Aggies coach staff this year.

After Mark Turgeon left for Maryland, new coach Billy Kennedy was able to keep the program's two most important commitments -- Top 100 guards J'Mychal Reese and Alex Caruso -- in the fold despite being diagnosed with the early stages of Parkinson's Disease.

Reese, a 6'2 170 guard out of Houston and Caruso, a 6'4 shooting guard out of College Station, both have significant ties to the A&M program. 

Caruso's father is a long-time associate athletic director, while Kennedy recently added Reese's father as an assistant to his coaching staff.

The Aggies 2012 class is ranked No. 19 in the country by Yahoo!, another sign of the rise of the A&M basketball program, which has now made six straight NCAA Tournament appearances. Only two SEC schools -- Kentucky and Florida -- are currently ranked higher.
