Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE
The Aggies are using their regular season finale to host another impressive group of recruits. As we head down the stretch of the recruiting season, the picture should begin to clear up as to how the Ags will finish their 2013 class. The following guys are expected to be in town this weekend:
WR - Jeremy Tabuyo
The Hawaiian native committed to Kevin Sumlin back in July without ever visiting campus. After an ACL injury ended his junior season, Tabuyo has bounced back with an impressive senior season, earning an invitation to play in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl. Tabuyo has 49 receptions for 770 yards and 10 touchdowns this season.
OLB - Myke Taverres
The 6'2" 220-pound College of Siskiyous linebacker committed to the Arkansas Razorbacks back in August. With the current Razorback coaching situation, Taverres is keeping his options open. The Aggies and Arizona Wildcats will be the main competitors to Arkansas for his signature. Taverres is an exciting player who is not afraid to leave his feet to make a play. He also packs a punch as evident by his three forced fumbles. On the season, Taverres had 51 tackles with 4.5 sacks and an interception.
OLB - Tommy Sanders
The four-star is ranked as the #1 JUCO outside linebacker by 247sports.com. The rangy 'backer from Butler Community College visited Mississippi State last weekend and came away from the visit with the Ags still his leader. Sanders has 63 total tackles this season and 7.5 sacks. He also has an interception returned for a touched as well as a fumble recovery.
OLB - Rahmon Swain
The Aggies will also bring in Butler C.C.'s other outside linebacker. Swain is 6'2" 225 pounds and 76 tackles with 4.5 sacks and three fumble recoveries on the year. I think it's safe to say that Swain is a backup plan at this point.
DE - Sione Sina
The 6'4" 250-pound weak-side end from the College of San Mateo already officially visited the Oregon Ducks and has plans to visit Oregon State after his trip to College Station. Sina has 22.5 total tackles including 2.5 sacks on the season. I would guess that Sina is insurance in case the staff doesn't feel good about where things stand with La'Darius Smith.
DT - Troy Boyland
Sina's defensive line teammate will also be making the trip this weekend. Boyland is 6'3" 300 pound run-stuffer who could play both tackle positions in Aggie DC Mark Snyder's defense. Besides Texas A&M, Boyland also has offers from Oregon State and Washington State.
ILB - Joe Walker
Walker is 6'3" 230 pounds and was a full qualifier out of high school. He visited Duke early this month and also has an offer from the Syracuse Orange. Walker is a very productive player with 102 tackles on the season.
