It’s never too early to work on next year’s mythical national recruiting title. Texas A&M certainly knows that.
The Aggies added their first cog in the 2016 class, rising junior offensive tackle Patrick Hudson out of Silsbee (Texas). He’s 6-foot-6, 325 pounds and has been flirting with the Aggies for several months now. Hudson is from a small high school, but it hasn’t kept other schools like Oklahoma, LSU and Texas from checking him out too. His obvious size doesn’t hurt. He has said before that the Aggies were his top school, and he’s on campus attending Friday Night Lights as we speak.
As usual, Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin sent out his usual Tweet after a commitment. “#YESSIR!” he Tweeted around 7 p.m. EST. Per NCAA rules he can’t comment publicly about a commitment, but he can certainly put out a cryptic message that everybody who follows recruiting news understands–including other recruits. Sumlin also retweeted somebody else’s message shortly after Hudson’s commitment … “#WHOSNEXT!”.
Don’t be surprised if Texas A&M lands a few more elite commitments before this weekend’s event is over. That’s usually how it goes.
The Aggies currently lead the nation in the team rankings for 2015, now they have a good start for 2016.
