A little $485 million fixer-upper project isn't the only thing that has fans in College Station excited this weekend. Fresh off an impressive performance against Arizona St., a number of highly-recruited athletes will be in town to see just how loud this new stadium can actually be.
It's hard to choose a headliner from this group, but North Shore defensive back Eric Monroe will be back on campus less than 48 hours after receiving a visit from the Swagcopter. Currently an LSU commit, Monroe is considered one of the top defensive backs in the country, however getting him away from a historically anti-A&M North Shore coaching staff will be difficult.
Fellow National Top 100 recruit Michael Divinity will be making his official visit to A&M this weekend. Hailing from Marrero, Louisiana and thought by many to be an LSU lock, Divinity has been following the Aggie defense closely.

Joining Monroe and Divinity on the defensive side of the ball is Aldine Davis linebacker Jeffery McCullough. A huge Longhorn lean for much of the past year, McCullough has slowly warmed up to the idea of playing on a suddenly resurgent A&M defense, as well as watching highlights of the Texas defense against Notre Dame.
The fourth National Top 100 recruit in town this weekend is former A&M commit Tyrie Cleveland, the top wide receiver in Texas. He'll be looking to spend some more time with Aaron Moorehead, as well as have questions about the depth chart answered. Cleveland is most likely looking to major in Philosophy.

Amen Tyrie. Amen.
Representing the class of 2017 is Richmond defensive back Adam Beck, a big press corner in the Chavis mold who already boasts offers from Houston, SMU, and Texas Tech.
Finally, A&M received a surprise bit of good news as Brandon Jones, the #1 ranked safety in the class of 2016 shared his September 19th travel plans earlier this week.
