Aggies recent recruiting hot streak has them No. 2, inching closer to No. 1 ‘Bama–#YESSIR!!


Five-star prospects don’t exactly grow on trees. Many programs get about one five-star kid per decade. Others get none.

Texas A&M, it seems, gets one every couple of days. At least that’s the way it’s been in recent weeks. Head coach Kevin Sumlin has probably worn out his cellphone Tweeting his patented and just-cryptic-enough-to-not-violate-rules follow up to a commitment–#YESSIR!!!

This week, it was standout five-star WR Damarkus Lodge and the No. 1 overall 2016 prospect in the country–OL Greg Little. A few weeks ago it was five-star QB Kyler Murray. Also in the past few weeks, four-star prospects Kemah Siverand and Keaton Sutherland came aboard, along with three stars going on four-stars Kingsley KeKe, Richard Moore, Landis Durham and Riley Garner.

It has been a barrage of activity that has led Texas A&M to move up to No. 2 in the nation in the recruiting rankings, inching closer and closer to Alabama’s stellar No. 1 class.

“The class looks like it’s speaking for itself,” Siverand told Saturday Down South after Lodge’s announcement. “I’m not really much of a talker but more of an action doer. I’m sure the rest are too. It’s unbelievable. I’m humbled by the things that are coming our way. I know it’s a lot of expectations for us but God will help us.”

Along with the recent prospects who have come aboard, the Aggies’ No. 1 player for 2015 is actually five-star DT Daylon Mack, who has been aboard since the fall. And 2016 OL Patrick Hudson is also a five-star prospect. He joined the Aggies in March. The Aggies’ two-man group is also the No. 2 class in the early rankings for 2016, thanks to Little and Hudson both being five-star prospects.

How about that? Five five-star players on board for one program. Like we said … many BCS level programs wait a decade for a five-star kid.
