It is called the dead period for a reason. And with weeks like this past one for Texas A&M recruiting, it’s easy to see why.
With no face-to-face contact currently allowed between college coaches and prospective recruits, there’s very little recruiting done this time of year. That’s why you’ll see weeks like this last one, where the Aggies had no commitments and no de-commitments.
And given that the Aggies are tied with Tennessee for having the SEC’s largest class with 26 commitments, there won’t be too many more Kevin Sumlin tweets like the ones below in 2016.
