After a few weeks of bad news, there was plenty of positive developments on Wednesday.
Texas A&M wide receivers Ricky Seals-Jones and Josh Reynolds announced they will return to the Aggies next season via Twitter.
Seals-Jones first made his announcement, and Reynolds followed suit minutes later.
“To put a rest to the rumors, I will be returning next season,” Seals-Jones said in a tweet. “I love the 12th man and the G’s and I have some work to do. #GigEm”
“I am with my team all the way!” Reynolds said in a tweet. “I have decided that I am going to be staying for my senior year as a Texas A&M Aggie. #GigEm”
Seals-Jones and Reynolds were two of three positive headlines to come out of College Station, Texas on Wednesday. The talented wide receiver duo joined defensive end Daeshon Hall, who also made his decision public via Twitter on Wednesday.
As a 5-star recruit coming out of high school, Seals-Jones had a ton of pressure to contribute early in his collegiate career. However, an injury caused him to miss most of his freshman season.
Since then, Seals-Jones has been a steady contributor in the Aggies passing attack, and the 6-foot-5, 225-pounder totaled 45 receptions for 560 yards and four touchdowns this season.
Reynolds has been a huge playmaker for the Texas A&M offense in his two years with the program. After putting up over 800 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns in 2014, Reynolds totaled 51 receptions for 907 yards and five touchdowns this season.
Seals-Jones and Reynolds will join freshman Christian Kirk and sophomore Speedy Noil in a talented wide receiver group for the Aggies in 2016.
