No. 6 Texas A&M may have five schools ahead of it in the national recruiting rankings for 2015–but the Aggies are still five spots ahead of the Texas Longhorns.
And that’s mighty satisfying if you ask Aggies fans who sat around for years watching the Longhorns dominating the recruiting landscape of Texas. Those days are no more. They have to share … or in many ways, they’ve had to move out of the way. Five-star targets like Malik Jefferson, Kendall Sheffield, Demarkus Lodge and Kyler Murray are still out there and eyeing the Aggies. In fact, Murray will make his college decision known this week on Wednesday–and it’s down to Texas A&M and Oregon.
Texas A&M has landed two commitments in May to up its total to 10 commitments. Safety Justin Evans is a Top 25 ranked junior college transfer, while linebacker Riley Garner is a local kid who dreamed of playing for the Aggies.
“Moving to the SEC automatically bumped up the recruiting, now everybody wants to go to A&M,” Davis told SDS. “Tight ends like me want to go there. They run a great offense and they throw the rock. It’s close to home and are a good school. Texas is also a good school, but they didn’t move to the SEC … that’s just my opinion.
