Aggies Dominate Final Recruit Rankings


The final rankings of the top recruits in the country were released recently via 247Sports and three Aggies are in the top six, with Myles Garrett, previously the #8 prospect, finishing the year as the #1 overall player in the country. Kyle Allen also moved up the list to the #5 overall player in the country, and Speedy Noil finished as the #6 overall player in the country.

This marks the first time in Texas A&M history that they have finished with the #1 overall player in the country. The previous high was #8 Reggie McNeal back in 2002. This historic recruiting class for Texas A&M solidifies the cultural change not only in the state of Texas, but nationally for the Aggies with the #1 overall recruits from Arizona and Louisiana committing to Texas A&M as well as the top recruit from Texas.

All the credit in the world is due to Kevin Sumlin and his staff for what they are doing at Texas A&M. Bringing in top recruits, both in state and around the country, as well as winning head to head battles with the likes of Texas and LSU, Texas A&M has established itself as a true national power.

Many speculated that with Johnny Manziel leaving for the NFL Texas A&M would struggle, but the fact is Texas A&M is continuing to grow and setting itself up tremendously for the future. Johnny Manziel did help put Texas A&M back on the map, but Kevin Sumlin is making sure they stay there.
