Four-star OL commits to Texas A&M football over Longhorns, Sooners, Tide; Aggies now sit at four OL commitments

Texas A&M football is on an absolute heater on the recruiting trail. The Aggies have now added four commitments this week alone, with three of them coming on the offensive line. The latest to join the party is four-star offensive lineman Jonte Newman from Bridgeland High School in Houston.

Newman chose the Aggies over offers from Alabama, Oklahoma, and Texas. The Longhorns were the biggest competition for the Aggies in this one, but a visit to campus this last weekend pushed the Maroon and White over the top.

With Newman's commitment, the Aggies are now at four offensive linemen in the 2025 class—almost half of their nine total commits. Josh Moses, the only holdover commit from the previous staff, was the first; he was joined earlier this week by Marcus Garcia, yesterday by Connor Carty, and now by Newman. That's a great base to have at the position.

That base of four guys now allows the Aggies to be extremely choosy with the rest of their takes up front. It certainly seems they will have the ability to do just that, as they have had many repeat visitors to campus this spring who are stars along the offensive front. Notable among that group is Michael Fasusi, who has already visited campus twice this spring alone. Oh, and he'll be on campus again this weekend to make it a third time.

With the caliber of prospects on campus, including some high-leverage transfer portal recruitments, the Aggies have a chance to make some noise with another commitment or two. Not to read too much between the lines of this tweet from Shaun Cook, Assistant Director of Player Personnel, but it seems there could be a couple more in the pipeline.

Texas A&M football is rolling on the recruiting trail at the moment. Hopefully, that momentum remains into the summer as the season draws ever-nearer.
