For Texas A&M to begin competing for the SEC title on an annual basis, Jimbo Fisher has clearly identified the lines of scrimmage as an area of need for the Aggies. Despite the fact that seven of the program’s 18 commitments for the 2019 recruiting cycle project to play on the line of scrimmage, the Aggies continue to look for additional help up front.

You can now up that figure to eight of 19 as Virginia Beach defensive lineman Adarious Jones committed to Texas A&M over in-state program Virginia Tech on Saturday. While the 6-foot-3, 280-pound Jones may only rate as a three-star prospect at the moment, he’s seen his recruitment pick up in recent weeks. Georgia, South Carolina, N.C. State and Georgia Tech have all offered Jones a scholarship this spring but their efforts appear to be too late, as the Aggies got Jones on campus leading up to his commitment.

247Sports Composite ranks Jones as the No. 14 overall prospect from Virginia and the nation’s No. 36 defensive tackle. Texas A&M currently has the nation’s No.2-ranked recruiting class, sitting behind only Alabama in the 2019 team recruiting rankings.

Jones made his decision to commit to the Aggies public with the following message on Twitter:
