After closing the 2015 recruiting period with a bang, Texas A&M turned its eyes to 2016. While there’s plenty of work to be done, the Aggies may already have the biggest commitment not just for their class, but in all of college football.

Back in June 2014, offensive tackle Gregory Little committed to the Aggies. Since then, the 6-foot-5 Little has risen toward the top of recruiting rankings. He’s the consensus No. 1 player in Texas, the top offensive tackle in the country and he continues to move up in the overall player rankings. Rivals lists him at No. 8 overall, Scout has him No. 5, the 247sports pegs him at No. 2 and the ESPN 300 lists him No. 1.

While such early commitments often don’t mean much in today’s college football landscape, Little already looks like he’ll be an impact player early on in his career. He’s long, listed at 6-foot-5 or 6-foot-6 depending on where you look, and his frame has room to add to it, as he’s listed around 280 pounds. Scouts have written that his game already is built for pass protection, making him an instant fit in Aggieland.

Texas A&M has another tie to Little: the quarterback he protected throughout his high school career is Aggies signee Kyler Murray. The two were teammates at Allen High School in Allen, Texas, and Little could end up blocking for Murray once again should the QB decide to eschew a baseball career.

Could Little end up as the biggest recruit in the nation? Rashan Gary, a defensive tackle prospect from New Jersey, just jumped Little in the most recent 247 industry composite. Little’s composite score, though, is just barely behind Gary’s. With the way recruiting rankings shift around over the course of a season, if Little can protect Murray’s successor the same way he did Murray he could vault to the top of recruiting rankings.

With Cedric Ogbuehi looking like an early round pick this year, the Aggies will have sent three straight left tackles to the NFL. If Germain Ifedi lives up to his hype this year, he’ll make four in a row. And if the Aggies keep Little’s commitment, he could be the successor in that line and hold down the position for years to come.
