Continuing our daily look at top recruits in each SEC state, we’ll stop in the Lone Star State where Texas A&M has received verbal commitments from two five-stars but is trying to lure several others to College Station.

Top 10 recruits by SEC states

Based on 247Sports’ 2015 composite rankings by state, here are the 10 best prospects in Texas and where they’re headed:

  1. Malik Jefferson, LB, 6-2, 215, Mesquite (Five-star, uncommitted) — Considered a 50/50 lean between the Aggies and Longhorns at the start of the dead period, Jefferson would boost the linebacking corps at either program and be a near instant impact player. He’s athletic, covers well and could hold another 20 pounds of muscle.
  2. Kendall Sheffield, DB, 6-0, 180, Missouri City (Five-star, uncommitted)
  3. Daylon Mack, DT, 6-1, 330, Gladewater (Five-star, Texas A&M commit)
  4. Kyler Murray, QB, 5-10, 180, Allen (Five-star, Texas A&M commit) — Murray’s expected to challenge both Kyle Allen and Kenny Hill at Texas A&M — if he’s not drafted in the first round of the amateur baseball draft before his arrival. The 2014 Gatorade National Player of the Year will not enroll early in College Station.
  5. Jarrett Stidham, QB, 6-4, 190, Stephenville (Five-star, uncommitted)
  6. Maea Teuhema, OL, 6-4, 340, Keller (Five-star, LSU commit)
  7. Soso Jamabo, RB, 6-3, 210, Plano (Five-star, uncommitted)
  8. Damarkus Lodge, WR, 6-2, 190, Cedar Hill (Five-star, uncommitted)
  9. Delonte Thompson, DB, 6-2, 180, Orange (Five-star, Alabama commit) — Potentially a cornerstone of the Crimson Tide’s 2015 class defensively, Thompson covers a ton of a ground as a safety and has the perfect build at 6-foot-2, 180 pounds.
  10. Chris Warren, RB, 6-2, 235, Rockwall (Four-star, uncommitted)
