(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.

Swope leads the Aggies, who face Iowa State on Saturday, in yards receiving (619), receptions (40) and receiving touchdowns (6) this season.
