Texas A&M football lands bigtime cornerback commit in Shadow Creek's Cobey Sellers; chose Aggies over Texas, OU

Texas A&M football is looking to start some major momentum on the recruiting trail this summer, and they may have just seen the spark to light a massive fire. Elite corner prospect Cobey Sellers made his commitment today to the Aggies, choosing A&M over the new SEC additions Texas and OU.

Sellers ranks 124 in the nation according to 247Sports's in-house rankings, which is good for 20th in the state of Texas and 14th at the cornerback position overall. He becomes the second-highest rated member of Texas A&M football's 2025 recruiting class. Standing at just under 6 feet and around 175 LBs, Sellers also runs track, where he is an absolute flash in the 200 meters.

This is a statement recruitment for Mike Elko and company, as any will be when it's a straight-up battle with regional rivals. It seemed for some time that the Sooners and Longhorns were battling with the Aggies running a distant third, but a recent visit to campus for Sellers really turned the tide—credit Elko as well as secondary coaches Ish Aristide and Jordan Peterson.

Sellers joins Katy Paetow CB Deyjhon Pettaway and speedy Arizona CB Jamar Beal-Goines as members of the secondary in this class. All three are listed as corners, but the Aggies look as though they could close soon with some big names at the safety postion as well.

Cobey himself seems pretty excited about the news, tweeting out the following hilarious photo this afternoon:

With three commits at the position, you'd think that the Aggies are done at that position. However, if you can bend the ear of a high-level, top-10 prospect such as Devin Sanchez, there's no way you turn a guy like that away. A result like that isn't completely out of the question, either.
