A night of bad recruiting news for Texas A&M could benefit the Texas Longhorns

Well, thanks for screwing this up, Texas A&M, even if it's just for us to see you screw this up...

Last night was quite eventful for Texas' poor little brother from College Station, Texas A&M, as five-star quarterback Tate Martell decommitted from the Aggies. This sparked a chain of reactions that ultimately let to another commit, four-star wide receiver Mannie Netherly, realizing Texas A&M isn't the place for him, either.

The "future coach" Netherly is referring to is Aggies wide receiver coach Aaron Moorehead, who took to Twitter for a rant about loyalty and accountability and being scared for the next group of kids, among other things, which was seemingly sparked by Martell's decommitment. The entire situation was then followed by Tyjon Lindsey, a five-star wide receiver from California, marking Texas A&M off his list of potential landing spots, but later deleted the Tweet.

Where Texas comes into play in all of this is with Netherly, who picked up a Longhorns offer following his visit for Texas' Junior Day. Even following Netherly's change of plans, the Longhorns still have some catching up to do for the Crosby product, but is that really an issue for Charlie Strong? Go get 'em, coach!

All the laughable chaos can be found here.
