Texas A&M Aggies
- SEC TEAM RANK: No. 3
- NATIONAL TEAM RANK: No. 5
- LAST YEAR’S FINISH: No. 5 in SEC; No. 9 in nation.
- NO. 1 CURRENT RECRUIT: DE Myles Garrett (No. 2 in nation).
- SDS ‘SLEEPER’ STAR: LB Josh Walker is hardly ignored by the recruiting services, but he’s not a top 100 player either. He’s rated in the middle of the Aggies’ class, but this is a true leader, and he’ll excel in college. Very mature.
- SUM THE DAY UP: There has been some chatter that the Aggies didn’t have a good national signing day. Maybe it wasn’t loud, but they didn’t have a bad one either. They weren’t expecting to pick up any superstars–they already have plenty of them on board. One item of note, Cedric Collins will come to the school on scholarship, even though his football career is over because of medical issues. It was a class move by Coach Kevin Sumlin.
- OVERALL: The Aggies finish things up with a top five class, that’s hard to complain about. They have outstanding defensive talent coming in, including the beast otherwise known as Myles Garrett at defensive end. He’ll be making big plays in oh, say, seven months. Texas A&M covered all its bases with this group.
