Texas A&M Football Could Soon See a Huge Add in 2025 Ranks
When it comes to recruiting, much of the recent attention for Texas A&M football fans has been directed at the close of the 2024 class and the impressive portal work that Mike Elko has pulled off in the last few weeks. That's all well and good; there's still meat left on the bone there for the Aggies, though most of the pieces have fallen into place by this point. With that latter point in mind, though, attention is beginning to turn to the upcoming 2025 recruiting class.
I wrote earlier today about a list of five-star players that the Aggies could see commit to them before all is said and done. One name that I didn't include on that list—not a five-star, but a guy who has been a longtime priority of the Aggies nonetheless—is Kelvion Riggins, a LB from Forney, Texas.
Riggins has been to College Station many times over the years, as he has been a top priority dating back quite a while. It was a visit to Forney from Mike Elko, however, that immediately preceded the following Instagram post:
Insiders are playing it coy here, but many feel that the Aggies are in a great spot with Riggins. The in-state Longhorns and the out-of-state LSU Tigers have also been vying to bring Riggins in the boat as well, so this would be a big head-to-head pickup.
Riggins would not be the first commitment of the class, however. In all the hubbub of last season and a coaching change, many Texas A&M football fans might have forgotten that the Aggies actually already have a 2025 player committed in Joshua Moses, an IOL from Spring, Texas. Moses hasn't wavered in his commitment, even through the regime change. He and Riggins would be a solid base for this 2025 class, as the last staff felt like they had a diamond in the rough when Moses committed.
For now, though, we just wait and see. There are several highly-ranked linebackers that the Aggies are in on, and they finally have a top recruiter coaching the position in Jay Bateman. Riggins has cache in the 2025 ranks, so if he shut things down in favor of the Aggies this soon, it would be a big statement.
