Crootin: Nevada Week Edition.

After a star-studded week to open Kyle Field, the Aggies play host to a small, but important group of visitors.

The biggest piece of weekend recruiting news floated down from the twitterverse early, as McKinney North defensive lineman Justin Madubuike unexpectedly announced his commitment to A&M on Friday.

Madubuike's commitment came as a surprise to both A&M fans and Dave South, who now has another reason to stare confused at a pronunciation guide. The fast-rising senior picked A&M over offers from Alabama, Auburn, Notre Dame, Ohio State, UCLA, and just about every member of the Big 12.

The visitor list to the Lobos, Gamblers, Runnin' Rebels, Wolf Pack is smaller than last week, but still vitally important to the Aggies' 2016 recruiting class.

Expected visitors include:

Recent A&M running back commit Rakeem Boyd, seeing campus for the first time since sending the #YESSIR beacon to Kevin Sumlin.

Frankston wide recevier commit Kendrick Rogers, who quietly might be the single most underrated member of the 2016 class.

There are two huge uncommitted visitors in town, one being Brandon Jones, considered by many to be the #1 safety in the country. He'll be visiting College Station alongside North Mesquite offensive lineman Jean Delance, who has become a huge priority since Greg Little decommitted.

Look for the recruiting numbers to increase as SEC play begins, but if A&M reels in another top-10 class, it began with the small but loaded Ball State and Nevada weekends.
