Top cornerback can see himself at A&M

Missouri City (Texas) Fort Bend Marshall cornerback Toney Hurd Jr. has found himself a wanted prospect early in the recruiting process. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound junior holds three offers and was one of the top performers at the U.S. Army combine earlier this month.

Hurd has been a frequent visitor at Texas A&M for camps, games and junior days in the past, but has always maintained that he would like to play his college football outside the borders of his home state. However, after another visit to College Station on Saturday for a junior day, his tune has changed dramatically.

"It went well; I enjoyed myself," said Hurd about the junior day. "Actually, Texas A&M is in the running.

"Of course I could see myself there. I mean, I'm not narrowing it down yet to just A&M, you know. But they are way up there and way more than before."

Hurd had already seen all the facilities and everything the Aggies had to offer in that department, so it wasn't anything of that sort that made him reconsider his earlier statements. He said it is the relationships he has forged with people in Aggieland that did it.
