[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Texas A&M shocked the recruiting world last year by pulling out the number one class. Coach Jimbo Fisher has landed a top 10 class in every cycle since 2019. The Aggies recruiting class currently holds nine commits entering late August and sits 47th in the 247 Sports Class Rankings. Despite having a slow start, the Aggies have landed key players like Anthony Hill, Chase Bisontis, Dalton Brooks, and Jayvon Thomas, who look to headline a rising Texas A&M class.
Five-Star linebacker Anthony Hill out of Ryan (TX) headlines the Aggies class as of now. Ranked 15th Nationally, his best tool is his physicality, but he also has outstanding speed for his size, which allowed him to take snaps at RB this past season, making him one of the most dynamic defensive prospects in this 2023 class.
Offensive Tackle Chase Bisontis from Ramsey (NJ) committed to Texas A&M on July 24th. Chase ranks as the number one player in New Jersey and the 9th OT in the nation. Bisontis excels in the run-blocking category making it his best tool, Bisontis, plays through the whistle every play allowing him to become a nightmare to opposing defenses.
Dalton Brooks, a 6-1, 185-pound Athlete from Shiner (TX), committed to the Aggies along with Anthony Hill. Brooks ranks as the 67th player nationally and 12th in Texas. Dalton is listed as an Athlete but will likely play RB at the next level. Elite vision seems to be his best tool, and with this, he should become a swift back who can back clean cuts to get past defenders.
The 4th best player in the class, ranked 79th nationally and 13th in the state of Texas, Jayvon Thomas attends South Oak Cliffs (TX) and will play cornerback in college. The 5-11 corner has an excellent frame and uses his solid speed to disrupt plays and stay on top of receivers.
The longest-tenured commit in the class, committing back in July of 2021, Colton Thomasson is a four-star linemen rank as the 342nd best player nationally and 61st the best player in Texas. A massive force already standing at 6-8 325 pounds, Colton uses his body and football IQ to dominate on the offensive line.
The 6th player in the class is linebacker Daymion Sanford. The 6'2", 210-pound Line Backer attends Paetow (TX), and is ranked 404th nationally. Sanford has outstanding speed making it his best tool. He uses his quickness and a solid frame to make plays all over the field.
The newest commit in the Aggies class, 3-star Naquil Betrand became the third commit for Texas A&M on the offensive line. Ranked 900th nationally, Naquil held over 20 offers before committing, suggesting he is underrated as a prospect. Much like the other two linemen commits, The Northeast (PA) prospect is massive at 6-7 310-pounds. While his size helps, his best tool is his hand placement which allows him to push back defenders.
Samu Taumanupepe, a 380-Pound defensive linemen from Atascocita (TX) is ranked as the 102nd best defensive linemen in the nation. Samu earned himself a 21-6A first-team all-district selection last year. Size is Samu's best trait, and he uses it to throw opposing players to the ground at any chance he gets.
Punters traditionally do not get a lot of love. However, if there is one that is worthy of it, it's Tyler White. He plays at Southlake Carroll (TX) and ranks 231st in the state and 1,520th nationally. Tyler has exceptional accuracy and shows great promise as a future college punter.
The USC Commit ranks 5th nationally and 1st as a receiver. Since his visit back in June, there has been legitimate smoke for the Aggies to flip the Trojan commit, and with Texas A&M recruiting catching fire quick, Branch could end up in the Maroon and White.
Teammates of Aggie commit Daymion Sanford, Hicks ranks 7th nationally and is one of the most touted prospects in the nation. Hicks is a monster on the defensive side of the ball, eclipsing 39 offers over his high school career. Hicks is deciding between Texas and Texas A&M, with a commitment expected soon.
Hykeem is from Stranahan (FL) and ranks as the 2nd best WR in the class. Hykeem plans to commit on September 23rd, with the Aggies currently holding most of his predictions.
Texas A&M is currently without a Running Back commit in the class, and with Rueben Owens and Cedric Baxter Jr Choosing Texas, the Aggies now look to land Love. Jeremiyah plays at Christian Brothers College (MO) and ranks as the 66th player nationally.
TJ is an in-state player the Aggies need to capitalize on and land. Texas A&M currently holds all predictions for Shanahan. The 4-star IOL ranks 150th nationally and plays at Westlake (TX).
The second WR the Aggies are targetting in this class; Texas A&M holds all predictions for Adam, who does not have a commitment date yet, would be a great land for the Aggies. Hopkins plays at Thompkins County General (GA) and ranks as the 184th player nationally.
The 4-Star safety from Imhotep Institute (PA) ranks 377th nationally and 7th in Pennsylvania. The Aggies have had trouble recruiting in the secondary this cycle, but they lead for Stewart and hold all of his predictions. Landing Stewart would be huge for the Aggies and add depth to a position of need.
The Aggies landed 29 commits last year, gaining the number one class. Due to this, Texas A&M expects to land a smaller class this year. The Aggies still have many prospects left on their boards and are hopeful to land them. Despite Texas football being a massive in-state brand, Texas A&M seems to out-recruit them for a few players each year.
With Coach Fisher, the Aggies have great recruiting tactics and know how to make College Station feel like home. Recruiting for the Aggies is rising; however, Texas A&M is still losing out on many players to schools like Alabama and Georgia. With the Texas versus Texas A&M rivalry returning once Texas enters the SEC, winning this game will affect in-state recruiting and decide which school runs the recruiting wise for years to come.
