In the middle of the offseason, Texas A&M Football fans don’t have much to look forward to for a while. The season won’t start for another few months, meaning recruiting is in full force right now.
With the 2022 class slowing down, Aggie fans will be hoping to see an onslaught of commitments to their program. Even though the team only has a single commit since February, there are a handful of elite players who are trending toward Texas A&M Football.
Today, I’m going to go through three of these elite prospects, starting with a bonus fourth prospect who could become the team’s best 2022 commit.
Bonus: 5-star linebacker Harold Perkins is trending toward Texas A&M Football
Harold Perkins gets a half slide because Gig’Em Gazette dedicated an entire post to this player earlier this week, which will be linked at the end of this article. That said, this is a player that I could fill a ten-slide post about.
Right now, Perkins is ranked as the best linebacker in his class. At 6-2.5 and 200 pounds, the linebacker is built for instant playing time at the next level, which he may find on a TAMU roster that just lost its leading tackler. He’s not limited to any particular position as a linebacker and has even spent time as a runningback in high school.
His speed and athleticism will allow him to succeed if he commits to Texas A&M. He has been clocked running a 4.49 40-yard dash, which almost seems slow compared to what he does out on the field.
As the best player at his position in his class, Perkins would be a huge pickup to gain recruiting momentum as the 2021-22 season approaches.
