Kevin Sumlin Talks About The Possibility Of Reopening The QB Competition At Texas A&M

How Texas A&M paid over $50,000 to get Cedric Ogbuehi back for 2014

The biggest recruiting trip Kevin Sumlin and his staff took last winter did not involve any five-star prospect. Some sites had once listed the guy as a three-star prospect, others had him as a four-star, but Sumlin's Texas A&M staff was way past any of that. They knew they were dealing with a sure-fire starter and likely All-American talent. That's why the Aggies head coach...
