Posted this a few weeks ago but a lot has changed even since then. And I figured the asterisk's in the title mean it's important.

I have put all the players on there, and tried to hypothetically go through scenarios that allow us to optimally fill the spots. I by no means want any guys to not qualify, but I also don't want to leave some studs in the wind. The guys below are who I think are our primary targets left. I put asterisk's next to committed players that might not be signing with us in Feb for whatever reason, and matched them to remaining targets to account for spots. I broke the remaining targets down by position, with the primary target listed first and if we happen to miss, we might move to the second if there ends up being room. All I can say is I couldn't be happier about this class.
Now that there is no more speculation, here are the Early Enrollees that have signed.
1. Brett Wade
2. Kenny Flowers
3. Alex Sezer
4. Jordan Points
5. Reggie Chevis
6. Jeremey Stuckey
7. Cam Clear
8. JaQuay Williams
9. Tommy Sanders

BTW, I think we can get every one of the primary uncommitted guys if certain spots open.
Win we shall, yes we can, yes we will.
Nice update. Thanks
What's the news on huggins' qualifying status?
If you are asking me I have no idea. I was just saying who has been repeatedly brought up, but we will likely get a lot clearer of a picture next month as midterm grades come out and stuff like that. Hamm also mentioned a couple other possible grade casualties but I dont even want to speculate on that. The only thing I can guess is that certain players that have questionable grades know this and the coaches are handling the situation as well as they can. At some point, the coaches will have to make a decision that the risk isn't worth the reward, and if a players feelings get hurt, that might be a casualty but more importantly, the high school coaches will hopefully understand and maintain positive relationships with the A&M coaches.
As Hamm has said, the Master plan is falling into place.
I will still bet that since Kohl's family is Aggies there has been a deal worked out and if he comes he will play BB 1 year then go to MLB. Remember we only signed 9 for BB and he would make 10, otherwise it's stright to MLB if he becomes a millionaire and if it doesn't work out, he enroll at a later date and get an education.
Furthermore, the situation with Sanders and Hall is dependent upon what happens with Damonster and Za'Darius. Sanders is also dependent on the Savage to a degree and there is always Lark. It is very different to think we have options instead of everyone on pins and needles praying we get anyone. Also, trying to envision the "ifs" and "what ifs" is certainly a unique experience over the evnts of the last 15 years. I've started saying a little prayer each night to keep this Staff safe from harm, especially with all the stress and push-push they do trying to build a dynasty here. Thank you Kevin Sumlin and Staff.

I've heard that Jay Arnold is also a mid termer... So, can't get a true answer yet we will know soon enough.

So if we sign a full 2013 class of 25, does that mean we can't sign juco or midtermers next year? Sounds like common sense but these rules...
If he comes to A&M to play baseball he has to stay until he completes his junior year. The MLB uses the rules the NBA should follow - you're free to jump to pros out of HS but if you get on campus you have to stay for 3 years minimum.
And personally, I'd rather pick up Prevot than Stevens/Larue.
I think we can sign guys early but they still count towards the current class, so if we sign 5 early we can only sign 20 in Feb.
Jay Arnold is not a midterm guy.
If we sign 25 in Feb and they all qualify then yes we can still sign midterm guys next year, they just can't count back. This means next year's midterm guys plus guys who sign in Feb 2014 cannot exceed 25 total signees. We're only going to have about 12 seniors so that's not going to be an issue though.
Kohl has to stay for 3 year in baseball but with JFF being a freshman that throws a wrench in any plans Kohl had of playing football here. The reason is that by the time he gets a real chance to compete for a starting spot in football he'll be eligible for the baseball draft again as a true junior. Really if we sign Kohl we not only need a commitment that he's willing to turn down millions of dollars this summer so he can come to A&M but he needs to be willing to do the same when he's a junior so he can come back and compete for a starting spot in 2016.
