Texas A&M football picks up commitment from three-star offensive lineman Tyler Thomas

Texas A&M football has placed a huge emphasis on recruiting the offensive line this year. After years of missing quality depth and struggling up front at the position, this new staff for the Aggies has clearly come out with a mission on the offensive front.

To that end, the Aggies picked up yet another commitment today in Dickinson three-star OT Tyler Thomas. Thomas chose the Aggies over offers from LSU, Ole Miss, Texas, Penn State, and other schools.

Thomas stands at 6'4" and 325 LBs according to his social media. Dickinson high school, where he attends, is the alma mater of current Aggie player Donovan Green and former Aggie TE Jalen Wydermyer.

Thomas becomes the fifth commitment in an Aggie OL class that could grow as high as seven players if things fall right. The Aggies have the luxury of being extremely picky at this point—in fact, that was true even before Thomas pulled the trigger on a commitment, which should tell you of what they think of this guy.

He does have great size despite not being a highly-ranked prospect, and the staff clearly saw something in him that they liked. Thomas joins Jonte Newman and Marcus Garcia as tackle prospects committed to the Aggies.

Moving forward, I'd expect the Aggies to focus their offensive line recruiting on four prospects: Michael Fasusi, Ty Haywood, Lamont Rogers, and Andrew Babalola. All four visited campus this spring. Of that group, I think they have the best chance with the first three, and Rogers could be the biggest Aggie lean of that bunch.

Odds say you're unlikely to end up with more than two out of that four, and even that would be quite the haul. Whatever happens, though, this is shaping up to be a deep and skilled offensive line haul for Adam Cushing's first cycle in College Station.
