5 Reasons Why 5-Star WR Speedy Noil Could Sign with Texas A&M

0 of 6


    Speedy Noil is a 5-star athlete who will likely play receiver in college. At 5'10.5" and 176 pounds, the New Orleans native is the most exciting player to watch in the country with the ball in his hands.

    Noil does his damage as a quarterback these days, but his exceptional speed and quickness will make him a nightmare for college defenses on the perimeter. 

    A coveted prospect, one of Noil's top schools is Texas A&M, according to Chad Simmons of Scout.com (subscription required). While the Aggies are a great option for any recruit in the country, several key reasons regarding Noil could lead to him opting to play in College Station.

    Player evaluations are based on review of tape at Scout.comRivals247Sports and ESPNU.

Best of Both Proximities

    Texas A&M is in College Station, which is just over six hours from New Orleans in a car. Playing for the Aggies would give Noil the best of both worlds from a proximity standpoint.

    He would be relatively close to home but would still be far away enough to be able to stand on his own feet and spread his wings. Living in College Station would keep him close to the South, but Noil would still get to experience new things.

Still Can Play in the SEC

    The Aggies moving to the SEC was a shrewd move for recruiting, as they have the advantage of telling talented Texas prospects they can stay in their native state while playing in the best conference in the nation.

    Although Noil would be moving to Texas by signing with Texas A&M, he still would be able to play in the mighty league. The SEC is said to be the closest thing to the NFL in college football, so if Noil wants to face great competition to prepare him for the pros, the Aggies can award him that. 

Chance to Play with Kyle Allen

    With Noil likely playing receiver in college, he would be wise to study the quarterbacks of each of his top schools. 

    Texas A&M has a commitment from 5-star passer Kyle Allen, who could start for the Aggies as early as 2014. Allen, who is nearly 6'3" and 185 pounds, is an accurate quarterback who has great anticipation skills.

    A great distributor of the football, Allen would surely get Noil the ball early and often in College Station. The pair could develop instant chemistry at Texas A&M.

Kevin Sumlin

    A reason why Texas A&M recruits so well is due to the charisma of head coach Kevin Sumlin. He's a likable coach whom players seem to love.

    Noil would be able to play for a coach who runs a loose program and likes his players to have fun. Sumlin is fantastic off the field, as he genuinely cares for the well-being of every person in his program.

    The Aggies' head coach would make sure Noil is comfortable during his stay in College Station. Plus, Sumlin just signed a six-year extension with Texas A&M, according to Sam Khan Jr. of ESPN.com.

Great Offensive Scheme Fit

    A big part of Noil's decision could be how he'll be used in an offensive scheme, as showcasing himself to get to the NFL is a main goal of his, per Chad Simmons of Scout.com (subscription required).

    With his speed, quickness and elusiveness, the best fit for Noil is a spread offense. Texas A&M just so happens to run that type of scheme, as its high-octane passing attack is based on throwing the football. 

    Playing with several other talented young receivers already on the roster, Noil would be able to produce huge numbers in the Aggies' offensive attack.
