It’s just a fact of life: in college football, recruiting never stops. No sooner did the Texas A&M football program ink the top class in rankings history in the 2022 cycle than they had to set their sights on the 2023 haul. Of course, said 2023 haul—though it started off promising—ended up underwhelming relative to the standard Jimbo has set since becoming Texas A&M football’s head coach, as you might expect following the worst win-loss record since joining the SEC 10 years ago.
This past class brought in some top talent, such as DL David Hicks, OL Chase Bisontis, and DB Jayvon Thomas, but lacked depth; the 15th-ranked Aggie class consisted of the second-fewest players in the top 20 at only 19 signees, coming in right behind FSU’s 20th-ranked class (which only had 18). Underscoring this idea is the fact that, despite taking on some lower-ranked players to help fill out some needs and hopefully develop them into SEC-caliber depth, the Aggies had a higher average recruit ranking than 6 of the teams in front of them. Texas A&M football ended the 2023 cycle with more than a quarter of their class ranking within the top 100 recruits—of course, more than half their class were top-100 last year.
With both national signing days now behind us for the 2023 class (though the transfer portal remains an ever-present entity nowadays—that’s a whole different beast, however), the high school recruiting machine continues to churn, with the class of 2024 already jumping off to a quick start for the Texas A&M football program. This article will cover who the Aggies already have committed, as well as some names to know on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball.
