Texas A&M Football Signs LB Jordan Lockhart out of St. John Bosco
Texas A&M football has inked one of their three linebacker commitments, as Jordan Lockhart has now officially signed with the Aggies. Younger brother of Aggie junior linebacker Danny Lockhart Jr., Jordan was originally committed to the Ole Miss Rebels before flipping his pledge to the Aggies in June of this year.
Lockhart officially visited the Aggies on June 9 and committed on the 22nd. He has remained one of the most loyal pledges in the class, and very vocally so as well. He and his father, even through the coaching change, have been on Twitter in solid support of Coach Elko, and have spoken very highly of him since getting to visit and book some facetime with the new head man for Texas A&M football.
Lockhart measures about 6’3” and 230 LBs, possessing ideal height for an SEC linebacker. Adding a couple more pounds through Tommy Moffit’s S&C program will be a boon for Lockhart as well, but he comes in with a frame that means he’s ready to see the field sooner rather than later if he performs well in practice.
Ole Miss is obviously one of the teams that was battling with the Aggies for Lockhart’s signature, given that he was previously committed there. Alabama was another program that was showing interest—it’s not too often that Texas A&M football and Alabama are the top two programs fighting for a west coast prospect, but you can rest assured that when that is the case, the kid in question is pretty good.
Lockhart has proved himself well this year, justifying his lofty ranking. He has developed well and can play both on and off the ball at the linebacker spot. The Aggies need a solid class at this position both from the high school ranks and from the portal, and closing the deal with Lockhart and Tristan Jernigan (Tyanthony Smith is expected to flip to Texas) would go a long way there.
