Everybody knows Texas A&M scores a ton of points, but if the program wants to consistently win in the SEC, the program must start stockpiling elite defensive talent. That was evident in this past weekend’s loss to Alabama.
So far so good in that department. The Aggies are doing well, especially with the secondary and linebacking corps. And another thing? The Aggies are clearly beating out Texas for recruits–something that didn’t happen a few years ago. The Longhorns are still getting talent–but they aren’t getting all of it in one of the nation’s top hotbeds and they have to work harder to get it.
Cornerback prospects Nick Harvey and Cedric Collins are as good as they come, and safety prospects Armani Watts and Dylan Sumner-Gardner are also studs. This could be the nucleus of the future for the Aggies.
The Aggies have room to add some more talent, so look for uncommitted targets like DE Myles Garrett to be a major focus.
And here’s whats even more amazing–the 2015 class is already assembling and looking amazing. Class of 2015 TE commit Jordan Davis can tell you all about it.
“Our class is probably the most talked about class in awhile,” Davis told Saturday Down South. “I think about us coming in and making a big change in college football. I guess it will make the older players work …. I’ll be ready.”
