2013 Texas A&M Football Recruiting: Aggies Land Defensive End Jay Arnold

Make that 14 recruits for Kevin Sumlin and the Texas A&M Aggies for the class of 2013, as defensive end Jay Arnold was the latest to join the list, as he confirmed via his personal Twitter account.

Arnold is the only defensive end commit thus far in his class for A&M, and chose the school over offers from others that included Baylor, Ole Miss, Tulsa and Purdue.

The school has been on Arnold's - who is from the Dallas area - radar for some time, and he said this about his decision:

My first visit to A&M was my sophomore year when Sherman was still the head coach. I was really impressed with the program but something really didn't click. I pressed on but then Coach Sumlin's staff came in and I went down to their junior day on the 18th of February and I just hit it off with the staff. Then, I realized this is the place I wanted to be at. I took some more trips but my feelings for A&M never changed. I decided it was time to commit to A&M.
