Texas A&M football recruiting rumors: Can the Aggies land both Penn State's KeAndre Lambert-Smith and Houston's Sam Brown?

With the spring window open, this Texas A&M football staff has already shown their willingness to be the aggressor in attacking the transfer ranks. They've already brought in a big commitment from Utah C Koli Faaiu, and have been linked to several other top targets.

Two of those top targets are some of the best receivers the portal has to offer: Penn State's KeAndre Lambert-Smith and Houston's Sam Brown. Lambert-Smith is reportedly, at the time of writing, on the ground in College Station for his visit, while Brown looks like he will be visiting soon.

Rumors are emerging that the Aggies are in great shape for both guys. I think the need at receiver is evident, and that showed up big time in the spring game. The injury to Jabre Barber has increased the need at that spot, so an easy path to playing time has to factor in here for both Lambert-Smith and Brown.

Could the Aggies go two for two here? It may be too big of a dream, but it would certainly provide an immediate and noticeable boost to the Aggies' receiving corps.

As I've mentioned before, even after the departure of Evan Stewart, the Aggies' top-line talent in the receiving room is second to none in the nation. Noah Thomas's amazing play in the Maroon and White spring game testified to that. However, the other side of that coin is that the depth is a huge concern—something else that showed up in yesterday's contest.

Were the Aggies to add both of these prospects, that evaluation would be completely flipped on its head pretty much immediately, It's an exciting idea, for sure, but there's a lot of work to be done before it comes close to being a reality. The Aggies have done a great job with portal players once they get them on campus, though, so we'll have to see how things transpire when the visits conclude.
