04/06/14 - Texas A&M's Ricky Seals-Jones charged with disorderly conduct...Texas A&M receiver Ricky Seals-Jones was arrested early Sunday morning for disordely conduct. The arrest, which took place at 2:30 a.m. Sunday, was first reported by KBTX in College Station. From the KBTX report: According to police, Seals-Jones was being "carried away by his friends" as the bars were closing in the 100 block of College Main. An officer says he saw someone bump into Seals-Jones, which led the wideout to reportedly start exchanging words with the person. As the officer moved towards the scene to see and hear what was going on, he says Seals-Jones broke away from his friends and yelled "F*** you! You want some?" The officer also says Seals-Jones motioned to the other person like he wanted to fight. The player was taken into custody on the misdemeanor charge.
Texas A&M is looking into the incident and still determining what steps to take next, though I'd imagine some kind of suspension is in the offing. Seals-Jones is the fourth Texas A&M player to be arrested this offseason, joining quarterback Kenny Hill (public intoxication), defensive tackles Isaiah Golden (alleged possession of marijuana) and linebacker Darian Claiborne (noise violation). Seals-Jones caught three passes for 84 yards and a touchdown as a freshman in 2013. - Tom Fornelli, CBSSports.com
09/18/13 - Texas A&M considering a medical redshirt for Ricky Seals-Jones...Ricky Seals-Jones showed why he was considered one of the top recruits in the 2013 class in Texas A&M's season opener against Rice, pulling in a 71-yard touchdown grab. Now, unfortunately for Seals-Jones and the Aggies, there's a possibility his next touchdown catch won't take place until 2014. The San Antonio Express-News reports Texas A&M is considering using a medical redshirt on Seals-Jones that would keep him out for the rest of the season.
“He was in there a little bit (against Alabama), but his knee is kind of bothering him, and we're going to do what's best for him,” said Kevin Sumlin during his radio show. “He's injured and he tried to go a little bit on Saturday and it's still not right. So we're looking at it from a medical standpoint … he's either going to play up to a certain point in time, which is now, or he gets a medical redshirt. "That's an ongoing conversation at this point."
In order to use a medical redshirt on a player the player has to have played in less than 30 percent of a team's games in a season, which in a 12-game season, means three games or less. At this point Seals-Jones has played in two games for the Aggies, as he sat out the game against Sam Houston State. - Tom Fornelli, CBSSports.com
08/28/13 - TOP OF 2013 RECRUITING CLASS: WR Ricky Seals-Jones (Sealy, Texas, High) It's no shock that top wideouts wanted to play for Texas A&M and catch passes for the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, and Seals-Jones is one of six who elected to do so on Signing Day. But with his size and speed, Seals-Jones may be the best of the bunch, and should contend for immediate playing time on a unit hit hard by graduation. - The Sports Xchange
08/28/13 - Father of Ricky Seals-Jones says schools offered WR $600,000...The father of true freshman Texas A&M wide receiver Ricky Seals-Jones has said that his five-star son was the subject of a pay-for-play bidding war - a war he and his son elected to avoid by committing to the Aggies. Chester Jones told Yahoo Sports' Dan Wetzel that two schools - one SEC, one ACC - had each offered to double a previous offer of $300,000 for Seals-Jones' signature on a letter of intent, bringing the total to $600,000.
The $300,000 offer is due to be reported in the forthcoming book The System: The Glory and Scandal of Big-Time College Football, by CBS News reporter Armen Keteyian and Sports Illustrated's Jeff Benedict. Per Wetzel's early preview of the book, Jones alleges that "a top-20 program" other than A&M offered "$300,000 in cash, use of a luxury suite during football season, eight season tickets and $1,000 per month for Ricky and $500 for the family." "It was higher than that," Jones said of the follow-up offers. "It was a lot higher than that."
Jones said he and Seals-Jones declined any of the offers, worried that they would threaten Seals-Jones' eligibility. At this stage, it's hard to expect any of Jones' allegations to lead anywhere, since there's no claim of improper benefits, no schools named (apparently even in Keteyian's and Benedict's account), and no indication there's the kind of evidence needed for the NCAA to look into the matter. - Jerry Hinnen, CBSSports.com
