Texas A&M has landed one of its most important recruiting pieces for the Class of 2019. The Aggies now have their quarterback.
Zach Calzada gave his word to the Aggies on Thursday night via Twitter.
“This journey has been incredible,” Calzada said on Twitter. “I owe thanks to my parents, who have provided me with the opportunity to follow my dreams.”

He flew to College Station on Wednesday so his mom could see the campus, according to TexAgs.com’s Ryan Brauninger.
The Aggies have found their QB in the 2019 class, and it comes in the form of @ZachCalzada. He cancelled a midweek trip to Clemson and weekend visit to LSU to fly into College Station yesterday so his mom could see what A&M had to offer.

TexAgs.com’s Billy Liucci called Calzada very accurate with good mechanics. Calzada, from Lanier High School in Buford, Ga., stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 195 pounds, which gives him a good base with plenty of room to grow.
He ranks as the No. 46 player in Georgia in the 2019 class and the No. 439 player nationally.
New commit @ZachCalzada possesses a big-league arm, very accurate with the ball, good mechanics, is athletic and checks all of the boxes when it comes to intangibles. Total package under center.

Calzada’s offer list was massive with North Carolina, Tennessee and N.C. State considered among the other favorites, even though his home-state school of Georgia also extended an offer.
The Aggies now have 17 commitments in their 2019 class, which ranks No. 2 nationally behind Alabama, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
