    Texas A&M signed a pair of twins and six other local student-athletes on National Signing Day.

    As if that wasn't enough, Joeckel's twin brother Matt (ranked No. 29 among pro-style QBs nationally) is also headed to College Station to play quarterback for the Aggies.

    The Aggies also came away with running back Ben Malena. Malena missed a few games due to injury in 2009 but still managed to tally nearly 4,000 yards on the ground in his three years at Cedar Hill.  Malena is ranked No. 25 in the country for running backs, according to

    Head coach Mike Sherman also secured local defensive standouts Damontre Moore and Domonique Patterson.
