Reception on the recruiting trail has been awesome. No disrespect to anywhere I've coached before, but Texas A&M can draw students from anywhere. When we're bouncing around the state of Texas, this logo has so much weight and cache to it. People get excited when they hear from you.

I think this quote is why you would hang your hat on this working here. Someone pointed out that TCU was considering dropping baseball, and Schlossnagle turned that program into what it is today. I'd assume he was thinking if he could do that there, he could take the next steps with some of the additional advantages offered by being a coach at A&M.
