Aggies Add Another Elite Receiver

New, 17 comments

After adding speed and elusiveness at the wideout position on Thursday, the Aggies opted for size on the outside on Saturday.

Not very long ago, Frank Iheanacho didn't see himself as a football player. In fact, he applied his skill set to the hardwood and focused solely on that as a high school junior. This year, the 6'7" 220-pounder from Houston Westside decided he might have a future and the gridiron afterall and suited up. As expected this drew comparisons to Texas A&M receiver Mike Evans, who coincidentally, just declared for the NFL draft. Like Evans when he got to campus, Iheanacho is very raw fundamentally and will need some time to refine his craft.  Where they differ is Iheanacho may be a little taller than Evans, but also gives up a little bit of speed in my opinion.

According to 247Sports.com Composite Rankings, Frank is a Top-100 national prospect (#86 to be exact), and the 11th best wide receiver in the country. He chose the Aggies over the Oregon Ducks and the LSU Tigers, who made a strong late push. He is the Ags third receiver commit and 21st overall.
