Texas A&M football makes the cut for Houston WR Quanell X Farrakhan, Jr.

The evidence of the work that this Texas A&M football staff has been putting in on the recruiting trail continues to manifest itself. One of the top receivers out of the Houston area, Quanell X Farrakhan, Jr., has named the Aggies among his top group.

The Aggies, Alabama Crimson Tide, and Nebraska Cornhuskers are the three top schools for Farrakhan, Jr. Aggie receivers coach Holmon Wiggins, of course, was hired away from Alabama, but the Tide are still a top threat in this recruitment.

As things currently stand, Farrakhan is predicted to land at Alabama; however, no national experts have weighed in since a prediction by Steve Wiltfong nearly a year ago. In other words, I'd take this as a slight Tide lean right now without anything definitive yet.

Farrakhan is one of a number of highly talented receivers in the state that the Aggies are in on during this cycle. Kaliq Lockett, a five-star out of Sachse, is another name that the Ags have hosted several times recently.

Adrian Wilson, a recent Oregon decommit, could be another guy that the Aggies hone in on as the cycle continues on. Taz Williams is a highly-thought-of prospect that A&M could end up landing as well.

In all, the early returns from this recruiting cycle have to be very encouraging for Texas A&M football fans. Mike Elko and company have identified the needs of this team and are addressing them.

Further, the Aggie coaching staff have not seen nearly the dropoff in quality of prospect that some were worried that they would—they're still getting the top national recruits on campus. Whether they can land them in the end, however, is a question we have yet to answer.
