Texas A&M football recruiting rumors: WR Adrian Wilson decommits from Ducks... Can the Aggies gain his verbal pledge?

Mike Elko's initial staff with Texas A&M football has already done a lot to address the "recruiting concerns" that many fans were citing during his candidacy. Not only has the man himself done some extremely impressive work on the trail and in the portal, he has assembled a considerable roster of coaches with a reputation for elite recruiting.

Elko's staff, as I mentioned, has already gotten off to a great start. We all know about the huge success they've had in the portal, but the 2025 recruiting class is also off to an auspicious start. Since Elko turned his attention to the upcoming cycle, the Ags have already brought several priority targets into the fold in RB Deondrae Riden, CB Deyjhon Pettaway, and LB Kelvion Riggins.

Some recent developments have the Aggie faithful hoping they can add another top in-state talent soon. The news came down today that four-star WR Adrian Wilson of Pflugerville decommitted from the Oregon Ducks, and it caught the attention of Aggie fans.

Why? Well, aside from being an in-state prospect, the recruiting insiders have been talking about Wilson recently, mentioning that the Aggies have become a real player in his recruitment.

If Wilson does end up changing his pledge to the Aggies, it would be a huge get. The 247 composite has him ranked just outside the national top 100, meaning he would be the top-ranked Aggie commit were he to jump in the boat.

This is one where Holmon Wiggins can really show his stuff. The big-name WR coach now employed by the Aggies has yet to land a signature commitment (no pun intended!), though he hasn't had much time to work on the trail yet.
