Texas A&M football had 23 commits sign during the early signing period, the most in the class, so we’re dishing out some grades for each position.

Jimbo Fisher has put together one of the more successful recruiting classes in Texas A&M football‘s history. They are currently ranked No. 3 in the class and should finish no lower than  No. 5 given the amount of recruits who’ve already signed their national letter of intent during the early signing period.

Headlined by 5-star offensive tackle Kenyon Green, 5-star defensive tackle DeMarvin Leal, and a few other top 100 recruits, this class will give the Aggies weapons to compete at a high level.

It was a very diverse class. Jimbo and his staff picked up talented players on both sides of the ball and at most positions. He signed 11 offensive players, 11 defensive players and one kicker.

One of the stories of the day was Fisher flipping a Florida State commit. 4-star defensive tackle Derick Hunter joins a very stout list of incoming recruits at defensive line. The Aggies will need it with Daylon Mack, Kingsley Keke and Landis Durham all graduating.

A&M’s class finished third overall, but also third in the SEC. Alabama and Georgia wiped the floor with everyone once again. Alabama’s class is firmly in first with two 5-star and a ridiculous 22 4-star recruits — Penn State is second in 4-star recruits with 16. Georgia has more elite talent than anyone, picking up five of the 34 5-star recruits in the 247 Sports Composite.

Now that the dust has settled, we’re dishing out grades for each position.
