Texas A&M lands commitment from No. 1 prospect from Arkansas, 4-star defensive back Dreyden Norwood
Texas A&M’s march toward another top 10 recruiting class continues as the Aggies just landed a commitment from the No. 1 prospect from the state of Arkansas.
Four-star defensive back Dreyden Norwood of Northside High School in Fort Smith, Ark., announced his pledge to join Jimbo Fisher’s Aggie program on Friday.
The 6-foot, 175-pound Norwood is rated as a four-star prospect, the No. 19 cornerback prospect in the country and a top 250 overall recruit in the 2021 recruiting cycle by 247Sports Composite Rankings. Norwood picked Texas A&M over scholarship offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Georgia, Tennessee, Duke, Miami, Notre Dame, among many others.
With Norwood joining the Aggies currently recruiting class, Texas A&M holds pledges from 12 players in the 2021 recruiting cycle. Norwood is the third defensive back to join the class, joining four-star Texas native Deuce Harmon and three-star Pennslyvania native Tyreek Chappell.
To get an idea of what Norwood brings to the Aggies, check out his junior season highlight reel with Northside High School. As you can see in the clip below, Norwood plays quarterback at the high school level and is incredibly dangerous with the ball in his hands. It’s almost unfair what he’s able to do to some of the defenders in the video below.
