The Texas A&M football coaches have the nucleus of a solid recruiting class committed for 2016. The Aggies still need address some specific needs in their recruiting class in order for it to be considered a success.

College football recruiting is a never-ending process. Coaches constantly have to sell their program to new athletes in order to keep their roster stocked with talent.

The physical nature of the Southeast Conference requires a team to be three-deep in order to compete for a championship. Players get hurt so often in the SEC that coaches have to have viable options on the second and third team.

Look no further than the running back position at Texas A&M to witness this phenomena. Walk-on Kwame Etwi has received significant playing time at running back due to injuries to three of their five scholarship backs.

It is not good enough to be two-deep in the SEC. There is a constant demand for talented players, and that demand can only be met through recruiting.

Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin has done a tremendous job of turning over the roster since he took over the program in 2012. The Aggies finally have the depth required on the defensive line in order to be competitive on a weekly basis in this conference.

Sumlin needs to continue the cycle of adding elite talent to the roster on a yearly basis. This is a look at the five players who are atop the Aggies’ recruiting wish list for the class of 2016.
