S Brandon Jones – A&M
Most of the perceived momentum for Brandon Jones to the Longhorns came directly after Kyle Allen and Kyler Murray transferred from A&M. With the negative perception surrounding A&M, several Horn writers “crystal-balled” Jones to Texas. Jones’ recruitment has been very quiet thus far, and with a Baylor visit looming this weekend it’s anyone’s guess where he will land. However, he seemed to have a pretty good time on his in-home visit yesterday, and the Ags have been the long-time favorite throughout his recruitment.
WR Quartney Davis – A&M
A little over a month ago, Davis decommited from A&M and began exploring other options. On Monday, Sumlin sent out his most cryptic “Yessir” tweet yet. No major recruiting service was able to completely verify which recruit had committed, but most believe it to be Quartney Davis. Other options of major A&M targets in the Houston area include Jeffrey McCulloch and D’Vaughn Pennamon.
RB D’Vaughn Pennamon – A&M
Pennamon to A&M seems to be picking up more and more steam every day. He is currently committed to Ole Miss. But just this morning, he cancelled his upcoming visit with them. The Aggies already have two running backs committed in Trayveon Williams and Rakeem Boyd. They’ll not only have to pull off the flip, but also hold off Alabama for Pennamon.
LB Jeffrey McCulloch – Texas
It sounds like McCullough had his mind made up before arriving this past weekend on his official visit. By all indications, he had a great time. However, rumor has it that he informed a current A&M commit of his intention to sign with Texas. This one is certainly not over, but all signs point to McCulloch going to Texas.
LB Aaron Hansford – A&M
Luckily, McCulloch isn’t the only blue-chip linebacker being heavily recruited by A&M. Hansford is a 4-star outside linebacker out of Washington D.C. that is down to A&M and UCLA. It sure doesn’t hurt that his primary recruiter at UCLA this past year, Noel Mazzone, is now A&M’s offensive coordinator. He took an official visit to Aggieland on January 22nd and left very impressed.
DB Eric Cuffee – Texas
A couple weekends ago, Texas hosted a huge recruiting weekend and claimed to have landed several “silent-commits”. This is basically someone who says that they are committed but don’t want to make it publicly known yet, usually so they can have their moment on ESPN. However, in some cases those recruits then go visit other schools and start recruiting against the school they are visiting. Shady tactics for sure, but this is exactly what happened when Cuffee visited Arkansas this past weekend. Stay classy Texas.
DB Greedy Williams – LSU
The coaches have made a last minute push on the Williams brothers and offered them something that LSU hasn’t, a chance to play together. Greedy took an official visit to Aggieland this past weekend. And although the visit went really well, it seems like it’s all a little too late. Barring a last minute development, Greedy will likely stick with his initial pledge to LSU.
DB Rodarius Williams – OSU
If Greedy sticks with LSU, it’s likely that Rodarius will keep his current commitment to Oklahoma State. That being said, Rodarius takes his official visit to A&M this upcoming weekend and could leave with plenty to discuss. One thing is for certain, the coaching staff is giving them a tough decision to make.
S Cam Lewis – LSU
One recruit that could surprise a whole lot of Aggies is LSU 4-star safety Cam Lewis. A&M was reportedly his best visit. Furthermore, Sumlin didn’t mess around on his in-home visit yesterday bringing darn near every defensive coach that A&M has. This one should come down to the wire, but don’t get your hopes up on flipping a blue-chip from LSU in the 11th hour.
DT Chris Daniels – A&M
A&M has been hard pressed to find a defensive tackle for this 2016 class. However, it’s consistent pursuit of Chris Daniels may pay off come signing day. The 4-star defensive tackle chose Oklahoma back in December. However, he opened things back up last week when he decommitted. With an official visit to A&M looming this weekend and the lack of a defensive tackle in this recruiting class, things are looking very good for the Aggies.
ATH Jack Jones – USC
The 5-star athlete out of California is possibly the most difficult to figure out. USC makes the most sense, however they already have five wide receivers committed in the 2016 class with two already enrolled. If he were to pick USC, he would likely play cornerback. Bama, UCLA, and A&M are also in play, but all seem like long shots.
