Texas A&M football set to host 5-star CB Dijon Lee in early June, adding to impressive visitor list shaping up for next month

The reach of this Texas A&M football staff when it comes to recruiting continues to impress. The Aggies have been bringing in high-quality prospects from all over the state of Texas for a while, and now they are going more nationwide.

Five-star defensive back Dijon Lee confirmed today that he would be taking a visit to College Station in June. Lee, from Mission Viejo in California, is ranked 26th in the composite ratings, earning him the coveted status of five-star.

Lee will also be visiting Washington, Georgia, Texas, and Alabama. He is an extremely long and lanky player at nearly 6’4”, cutting a quite different figure than the CBs that the Aggies already have committed in this class. The word has been that Elko prefers the longer defensive backs, all else being equal, so this could be one that the head man focuses on in particular.

Because of his different physical profile, not to mention his elite skillset, this would be quite the pickup for the Aggies if this were to come to fruition. The ability of the Aggies to get elite defensive backs from across the country on campus, like Lee and Trey McNutt, bode well for the program moving forward.

Aggie fans are used to pulling in top defensive line talent from across the nation, but I have a feeling that it will be the secondary where we see a prodigious amount of talent pouring into Aggieland moving forward. That position group is Elko’s specialty, and I think he commands a lot of respect nationwide there. That’s not to mention the work guys like Ish Aristide and Jordan Peterson do for the Aggies.

Of course, there’s still a ways to go. Can’t be putting the cart in front of the horse. That said, I’m really growing excited about what this staff can do on the recruiting trail. Sometimes, all you need is a foot in the door.
