Over the weekend, the Ags bolstered their 2016 class with the addition of CB Travon Fuller. The consensus 4-star recruit is from Athens, TX and continues the trend of A&M snagging top talent out of east Texas. Often known as bEasts of the East, Aggie football was at its best in the 1990’s when A&M was able to hand pick talent from this area. Three of A&M’s top defensive recruits for the 2015 class all come from this area; DT Daylon Mack (Gladewater,TX), S Justin Dunning (Whitehouse, TX), S Larry Prior (Sulphur Springs, TX).
Fuller checks in at 5’11” 160lbs and is currently listed as the 132nd best overall prospect, the 12th best at his position, and the 14th best player in Texas. As a sophomore, he tallied 53 tackles with 7 interceptions. He also played wide receiver and was credited with 413 yards and 5 touchdowns in 2013. The Aggies have landed an elite playmaker in Fuller and their second recruit of the 2016 class.
Coach Sumlin and staff are getting a jump start on the 2016 class with this commitment and their unofficial recruiting day this past Saturday. With several 5-stars and 4-stars taking in A&M’s first fall practice, they all left Aggieland very impressed. Sumlin is already in good shape with his 2015 class, but is relentlessly recruiting to increase the depth and talent.
