(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By KRISTIE RIEKEN AP Sports Writer Making the transition from high school running back to receiver at Texas A&M wasn't easy for Ryan Swope. He was helped by Ryan Tannehill, who arrived in College Station as a quarterback, but played almost exclusively at receiver his first two seasons. Tannehill returned to quarterback last year. But the things he taught Swope about receiving have helped the junior become a top target for the 17th-ranked Aggies, with the pair hooking up for four touchdowns last weekend. Swope leads the Aggies, who face Iowa State on Saturday, in yards receiving (619), receptions (40) and receiving touchdowns (6) this season.
