National Signing Day usually provides some excellent bulletin-board material for the upcoming season.

Too bad Wednesday’s war of words between recruits from Texas and Texas A&M will be limited to Twitter, considering the longtime rivals aren’t slated to play one another anytime soon.

Leave it to Colin Cowherd to light the fuse. For a whole segment of his program, the Fox Sports Radio host ripped the Aggies lack of success on the field.

B.J. Foster, one of the top recruits in the state of Texas and a prize of the most recent Longhorns’ recruiting class, agreed with Cowherd with some cry-face Emojis.

Texas A&M recruit Leon O’Neal Jr. responded in kind.

Jaylen Waddle, who ultimately chose to attend Alabama over Texas A&M, retweeted and tagged Foster. He also pointed out the last time the Aggies played a Big 12 team, they lost.

O’Neal countered by saying A&M could be Texas if the two played each other. He also mocked the quality of defenses in the Big 12.

Caden Sterns, another one of the Longhorns’ top recruit, then reminded O’Neal about the Aggies high-scoring game against Wake Forest from this past season.

O’Neal countered by bringing up Texas’ brutal 51-41 loss to Maryland from early last fall.

Sterns put an exclamation point on his argument by referencing A&M’s brutal blown lead against UCLA, which occurred on the same day.

O’Neal finally “ended,” the internet fight, but not before taking one more parting shot.
