After somewhat of a dry spell, the Texas A&M football team is getting right back into the recruiting trail in a hurry. Unfortunately, this began with a decommitment from the school’s top prospect in Eli Holstein. It’s still early days, so there’s no reason to sound the alarm quite yet.

Thankfully, the Aggies look like they’re already working hard to bring in more elite players, starting with one of the most promising runningback prospects in the 2023 class.

That prospect is Marquise Collins, who currently only holds a three-star status. That said, Collins seemingly came out of nowhere onto the college football recruiting scene. The RB currently holds 18 offers, including teams like Texas Tech, USC, and Baylor. He has not yet earned an offer from the Texas A&M football team.

As mentioned, Collins’ status as a high school prospect isn’t particularly complimentary. The three-star prospect is ranked by 247Sports’ composite rankings as the 40th-best runningback in the country and the 635th-best player overall — not necessarily numbers that will have you overly excited.

Here are some that might.

Collins, who plays football in the Aggies’ backyard at College Station High School, accounted for over 3,000 total yards along with 42 total touchdowns in his most recent season. To clarify, those are his stats from one single year, not his entire career.

For some unknown reason, these numbers aren’t overly attractive to college football recruiting services, but perhaps that’ll work out in the Aggies’ favor. According to AggiesToday on Twitter, Collins plans to take a visit to Aggieland this week.

The 5’10”, 195-pound runningback will get a good look at a college that has to be considered a dream school for somebody in his position. Perhaps this visit will give the Aggies’ coaching staff a reason to finally extend an offer to a prospect who is clearly elite.

The dual-sport athlete would undoubtedly be a huge addition to an already-stacked Aggie runningback room that features names like Devon Achane, LJ Johnson, Amari Daniels, and a handful of others.
