Texas A&M football and rival fans react to latest Aggie pickup: Top-150 CB Cobey Sellers spurns Horns and Sooners to Aggies' delight, Austin and Norman in shambles

Texas A&M football just picked up another big time commitment for the 2025 recruiting class, outlasting the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners for Shadow Creek CB Cobey Sellers. This was a big win for Elko and company, as it was a true heavyweight fight where this Aggie staff ended up triumphing.

Aggie fans themselves were elated, and the magnitude of what this Texas A&M football staff is building is beginning to catch the eye of fans around the nation:

Of course, you'll have a few fans reveling in the fact that they just dealt a blow to a rival, exulting in the comments section.

Aggies can tell that another high-quality defense is inbound to College Station—the Ags should have a stellar unit this season, but with the way Elko is recruiting, A&M should be set up for quite some time.

The coaches chimed in on Twitter as well, showing their excitement at this pickup.

I found this reply from a fan pretty funny.

Of course, when you have a big win like this over some rivals, you'll have those who come out with the short end of the stick react in one of two ways: they will either congratulate the guy on the decision, or they will... let out their feelings.


I think this above tweet technically counts as fan fiction, which is weird to be writing about high schoolers. But it's not the first time Longhorn fans have done that!

Just as a point of order here, this doesn't quite make sense. Like, it's obviously untrue, but even if it weren't, why would the moment he commits be the moment he realizes all this? It just doesn't work on any level.

Technically true, I suppose!

This will certainly get him to flip his commitment... smart strategy, "jakesterr."

Not insignificantly, the following was tweeted out by Billy Granville, the father of Max Granville, another priority target for the Aggies in the upcoming class, and a good friend of Sellers:

It's not out of the question to think that this commitment could possibly avail the Aggies much in another high-leverage recruitment.
