Alabama (6-1, 3-1 SEC) moved to No. 8 in the recent AP Poll following a 41-23 victory over now No. 15 Texas A&M (5-1, 2-1 SEC) on Saturday. SEC Country caught up with a handful of commits and targets from both programs for their reaction from this weekend’s matchup.
Check them out below:
David Marshall, DL, Upson-Lee High School, Ga. (Undecided) — “Alabama had the first half of the game. Texas A&M didn’t give up in the second half, but they should have come back.”
Tate Martell, QB, Bishop Gorman High School, Nev. (committed to Texas A&M) — “You can’t turn the ball over. That’s the difference in the big games.”
Still love my Aggies though! #2017??
