2025 Five-Stars Who Texas A&M Football Could Land: LB Jonah Williams

Stop me if you've heard this one before: Texas A&M football has an early inside track with a five-star, in-state linebacker.

In fairness, that might be scarier if Santucci was still around.

The 14th-ranked player in the nation per the 247Sports Composite, Jonah Williams has been a priority for the Aggies for quite some time. Hailing from Ball High School in Galveston, which you may remember as the alma mater of Aggie All-Pro WR Mike Evans, Williams has had his eye on the Ags for quite some time.

An elite athlete, Williams has played both safety and linebacker in high school, which earned him the ATH designation for some time on 247. Recently, though, they have changed him to a straight up linebacker, which is where he projects anyway. Currently at 6'3" and 203 LBs, Williams could still add a lot of weight to his frame.

This one figures to be an in-state battle between the Aggies and Longhorns, as things stand. A&M has been harder after Williams for a while, but the staff change and disparity in final 2023 records didn't help their case. Jay Bateman will have his work cut out for him in this recruitment, but he has shown that he's more than up to the challenge of a heavyweight fight of this nature. Landing Williams would exorcise a lot of ghosts for Texas A&M football fans, and I think they have a great chance to do just that.
