As National Signing Day approaches, Texas A&M recruiting is going the wrong way in the national rankings.
The Aggies haven’t had any de-commitments, but with a class size of 26 commits, Kevin Sumlin and Co. haven’t added anyone to the class. Meanwhile, teams like Auburn, Michigan and Florida State have added a number of blue-chip recruits and thus risen in the rankings.
Texas A&M has less than a month until signing day, and the Aggies still have a number of highly-touted targets out there. But if the Aggies miss out, the recruiting season would resemble the disappointing end to the 2016 football season.
Where Texas A&M’s 2017 recruiting class ranks
