Texas A&M football recruiting rumors: Aggies gaining momentum with 2025 quarterback

Texas A&M football has done a great job already with recruiting in the 2025 class, landing an offensive and defensive prospect from both Houston and Dallas. This is an auspicious start in their efforts to lock down the state ahead of a cycle with outstanding talent all across Texas.

If recent signals can be trusted, however, Mike Elko and Collin Klein may be venturing outside the state’s borders to snag one of the premier quarterbacks in the entire nation. A target of this staff since very early on, California QB Husan Longstreet has announced his commitment date, and Aggie fans quickly took notice.

Longstreet attended a junior day in College Station at the beginning of last month, his last recorded campus visit according to 247Sports. Not only that, but as soon as he set his commitment date, Steve Wiltfong, Director of Football Recruiting at 247, entered a prediction for Longstreet to commit to the Aggies.

Longstreet is a top-100 player according to both the in-house rankings for 247 as well as their composite rankings, so this would be a major victory. This is not to mention that this would be a major inroad being established in one of the top talent-producing states in the nation. The previous Aggie staff got recruits from California here and there, but never closed the deal on a major prospect from the state.

If the Aggies do indeed land Longstreet come April 14, it would be a commitment that takes the potential of this class into the stratosphere. He’s a name player, and it’s well known that quarterbacks often draw in top talent at other positions to join them in the class. A nationally-known player with a cannon for an arm, as Longstreet has, would be the perfect guy for this first cycle. Here’s hoping that Wiltfong is correct, and that Elko and Klein have their guy.
