The whole #WRTS (We Run The State) mantra that has become synonymous with Texas A&M recruiting took on a larger embodiment with the verbal commitments of offensive linemen Austin and Riley Anderson out of Mineola High School yesterday.
The dynamic duo had just come off a visit to Ole Miss and Auburn just a day before making their commitments via Twitter. The fact that they decided to pull the trigger after visiting two higher level schools academically and athletically shows how much of an impact their visit to College Station and time with Kevin Sumlin had just a week prior to the commitments.
The twins were also highly considering Charlie Strong and the Texas Longhorns, but to no avail. That marks 4 of the top 5 offensive tackles in Texas that OL coach Joe Wickline has missed out on, which could possibly turn into 5 of the top 5 with North Mesquite OT Jean Delance highly considering the Aggies also. Mark Passwaters of Rivals.com shows that their might have been more of a sting to the Longhorns than we originally realized.
Ouch. Austin and Riley Anderson committed to #TAMU on their way back from visiting Texas.

The twins hold down both the tackle positions for Mineola and are a force to be reckoned with. Austin recorded 131 pancake blocks as a junior while Riley notched 120. A stellar junior season will only improve into their senior years with brute strength and good hand placement.
The Aggies landed a pair of gems, as the current 3-stars have plenty of time and room for improvement and a bright future ahead of them in Aggieland.
Texas A&M already had my number one player in the nation committed in Allenâ€™s Greg Little. Now with the Anderson twins committed, and possibly future commitment in Jean Delance, the Aggies are set up for a huge haul in 2016 already. Not to forget, former Aggie and now Baylor Bear commit Patrick Hudson still being on the fence with an unstable recruitment. Despite what could be happening in the future, Greg Little and the Anderson twins are a very solid current foundation
