Texas A&M has a high-profile quarterback committed for the Class of 2017, but Kevin Sumlin’s staff clearly knows from experience that one might not be enough.
Roshauud Paul, a 2017 dual-threat quarterback from Bremond, Texas, committed to Texas A&M on Saturday night. Paul, listed at 6-foot and 170 pounds, is rated as the No. 40 athlete in the nation and the No. 73 player in the state of Texas for the Class of 2017, according to the 247Sports’ composite rankings.

Paul passed for 2,412 yards and 29 touchdowns as a junior in 2015, according to 247Sports. He also ran for 2,193 yards and 40 touchdowns. As Cody Coil of KBTX in College Station noted, Paul is a dynamic player.

Whether or not Paul plays quarterback for the Aggies remains to be seen. Texas A&M also has a commitment from Tate Martell, who is the No. 1-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the Class of 2017.
There could be multiple openings on the depth chart after the 2016 season, though, considering three quarterbacks who started games for Texas A&M have transferred since the end of the 2014 season and graduate transfer Trevor Knight, the favorite to start in 2016, has only one year of eligibility left.
