Texas A&M picks up another Maroon Goon with commitment from in-state recruit
The Maroon Goons are on quite a run these days.
The latest example is Texas A&M picked up a commitment from Hunter Erb, an offensive tackle recruit out of Haslet, Texas (Eaton). Erb is listed at 6-foot-6 and 305 pounds and is not yet rated in the Class of 2022 by the 247Sports Composite. He has a reported 17 offers. Erb’s addition means the Aggies’ five commits in the Class of 2022 are ranked No. 3 in the SEC and No. 9 in the country by 247Sports.
Erb is the second offensive tackle in the class for the Aggies joining PJ Williams, who announced his commitment to the Aggies earlier in January. But the Aggies have also pulled in Tennessee transfer Jahmir Johnson, an offensive tackle, and JUCO offensive lineman Jordan Moko, who is 6-foot-5 and 335 pound, in recent days.
Here is his 247Sports scouting report: “Possesses the desired height and frame for a high-major offensive tackle. Verified college-ready size. Plays forward well and shows in second-level efficacy. Flashes encouraging punch power at times when hunting at the second level in the run game. Effort is there and block-finishing desire and ability show on tape. Motor and mean streak also manifest in penchant for looking for more work when it’s there. Sheer size presents difficult obstacle for edge rushers in pass pro. Started at left tackle as a junior and owns physical traits to play a number of O-line positions at the next level. Looks fairly natural in kick slide and plays aware in pass pro.”
