Texas A&M breaks drought, picks up in-state linebacker commitment
Texas A&M is building its linebacker depth back after the Aggies didn’t sign anyone at that position in 2021. Martrell Harris has helped to change that narrative with a commitment on Sunday.
Harris is a 3-star recruit out of The Woodlands, Texas, and is rated the No. 39 linebacker in the country by the 247Sports Composite. He reportedly had an official visit this weekend, and committed to coach Jimbo Fisher before he left, and announced it on Instagram.
Harris developed a strong relationship with linebacker coach Tyler Santucci and felt Texas A&M was the place for him.
“I talk to coach Santucci the most of anybody,” Harris previously told GigEm247. “I talk to him a lot and he just tells me how much they want me there. We get along a lot.”
As for how A&M would use him, the Aggies see Harris as comparable to one of their starting linebackers for this coming season.
“They like how I would fit in there,” Harris said in the spring. “I did a Zoom with them and they were showing me Aaron Hansford. That’s where I’d be playing if was to go there, at WILL.”
Though he’s recovering from a collarbone injury, Harris said he is good to go for his senior season, and looking to get himself in shape to transition to college.
