The Texas A&M football team had a strong first day of the early signing period on Wednesday, notching 22 signees, including eight players who are expected to enroll in January and compete in spring football.
According to ESPN A&M’s 2019 recruiting class is ranked No. 2 overall with SEC west rival Alabama at No. 1 and at Georgia No. 3.
Those eight early enrollees include five-star defensive tackle DeMarvin Leal, four-star recruits wide receiver Kam Brown, tight end Baylor Cupp, defensive end Derick Hunter, and linebacker Andre White Jr., and three-stars quarterback Zach Calzada, kicker Caden Davis, and linebacker RJ Orebo.
Hunter was a major victory for A&M’s 2019 recruiting class, having previously committed to Florida State before announcing his switch on Wednesday.
The Aggies also earned commitments from three other wide receivers: Kenyon Jackson, Chase Lane, and Dylan Wright.
Jackson is one of eight players recruited from outside of Texas, hailing from Loganville, Georgia. Other out-of-state players include Hunter from Florida, White from Pennsylvania, Calzada from Georgia, cornerback Elijah Blades from California, linebacker Ke’Shun Brown from Montgomery, Alabama, defensive tackle Adarious Jones from Virginia, and linebacker Tarian Lee from Florida.
A&M also picked up commitments from offensive tackles Kenyon Green from Atascocita High School and Hallsville High School’s Blake Trainor. Cornerback Erick Young and safeties Demani Richardson and Brian Williams rounded out the defensive signees for the Aggies.
Also signing to A&M’s 2019 class are offensive lineman Layden Robinson and running back Isaiah Spiller.
A&M expects a few more recruits to commit before the early signing period ends on Friday.
