Ranked No. 2 nationally by 247Sports.com, the Texas A&M 2019 recruiting class certainly has some future stars. But the big question will be just how many of these newcomers will make a mark on the Aggies in their first season.

Head coach Jimbo Fisher is still building the foundation of what he and all of Aggieland hope will be a championship program. Continuing to bring in superior talent is the essence of that foundation, and the 2019 class has an excellent head start on the competition.

Here are five recruits who can help Texas A&M right away.

1. DT DeMarvin Leal

Rank: 5 stars

Why he’ll play immediately: At 6-4, 280, the Converse Judson standout is just what the Aggies need to plug the hole at defensive tackle that will be left by the departure of senior Daylon Mack. A district defensive MVP as a junior, Leal had already piled up 112 tackles over two seasons, including 7 sacks and 27 tackles for loss, before even entering his senior year. Ranked third in the nation at his position by 247Sports.com, Leal is also rated the fourth-best player coming out of Texas.

2. S Brian Williams

Rank: 4 stars

Why he’ll play immediately: The Aggies weren’t very good at covering the pass this season, and that problem will only be exacerbated by the departure of senior free safety Donovan Wilson after the Gator Bowl on New Year’s Eve. So opportunity knocks for this 6-11, 211-pounder from Bishop Dunne in Dallas. He is ranked No. 2 in the nation at his position by 247Sports.com and is the No. 30 overall recruit. Williams is among the top 10-rated players coming out of the Lone Star State.

3. DE Braedon Mowry

Rank: 4 stars

Why he’ll play immediately: The 6-4, 225-pounder from Katy, Texas, racked up 127 tackles in two high school seasons, including 16 sacks and 36 tackles for loss. With a nose for the football, he forced 2 fumbles and recovered 3. The Aggies will be thin at the position with ends Landis Durham and Kingsley Keke departing following their senior seasons. Freshmen back both on the depth chart, meaning the opportunity is there for Mowry to step in and make an immediate contribution.

4. ILB Andre White Jr.

Rank: 4 stars

Why he’ll play immediately: Senior middle linebacker Otaro Alaka will leave some gigantic shoes to fill when he leaves after the Gator Bowl. The Aggies will need a strong presence in the middle to help fill that void. That’s where White comes in. The top-rated recruit out of Pennsylvania according to 247Sports.com, White is 6-3, 224 and runs a 4.7 in the 40. Last season alone he racked up 87 tackles, including 10 for loss (3 sacks). If the Aggies can keep this verbal commit from the northeast, it could solve the issue in the linebacking corps.

5. OT Kenyon Green

Rank: 5 stars 

Why he’ll play immediately: The need is at right guard, where two-deep Aggies seniors Keaton Sutherland and Connor Lanfear will be departing upon the completion of the current season. But Fisher is not opposed to doing some shuffling along the offensive line, and that could serve Green very well. The 6-4, 300-pounder from Atascocita, Texas, is considered by 247Sports.com as the prize recruit out of Texas. Surely one of the nation’s elite offensive linemen, Green could very well find himself in a key role along the Aggies’ offensive front by the time the 2019 season rolls around.
