Everyone said A&M was going to suck in the SEC and they were going to get hammered, etc, etc
To be fair, without Johnny Football they would have, no one could have predicted his impact as a freshmen even their coaches.
As to Texas recruiting, RSJ probably would have ended up at LSU had A&M and Johnny Football not started putting up video game numbers, so there has been an impact. That said, Lecouture is from Texas and was at one time committed to Texas A&M. In fact, he played ball at A&M Consolidated High School in College Station before his family moved to Nebraska, so LSU won that battle. Also, LSU already has a Texas commit for 2014, Chris Hardeman a CB from Houston (Alief Taylor).
