New No. 1 national prospect for 247Sports, and Aggies will be happy


Hot off his dominating performance in the Under Armour All-American Game, Texas A&M defensive end commit Myles Garrett moved past LSU RB commit Leonard Fournette into the No. 1 spot in 247Sports’ individual ranking.

Garrett was amazing in the all-star game, racking up four negative yardage plays in the first quarter alone, making it impossible for the opposing quarterbacks to get any kind of momentum.It was one of the more dominant individual showings in recent all-star game memory. The 247Sports website said that this will be its final ranking of the 2014, and Garrett will go down as its No. 1 player of the 2014 class.

The website also posts what it calls a “composite ranking”, which averages the major recruiting services–247Sports, Rivals, Scout and ESPN. Until all of the services finish their final evaluations, Fournette will likely remain atop the composite ranking. For the record, Scout and ESPN still have Fournette as the No. 1 player in the nation, while Rivals has Alabama defensive lineman Da’Shawn Hand.
