A look at A&M's chances in the Rivals 250
Here's how A&M currently stands with the uncommitted prospects who have offers from A&M within the most recent Rivals250. As the Aggies already have five commits within the Rivals250, there's a good chance that they will exceed last year's total, when they nabbed ten commitments from this elite group.
3. RB Leonard Fournette: The New Orleans has never made it to campus and this appears to be a battle in which A&M is in on the outside looking in.
9. CB Adoree' Jackson: West Coast five star prospect who is being recruited by the world. A&M simply needs to get him on campus before they can be considered a serious player for him.
14. CB Tony Brown: This appeared to be a three team race at one point (A&M, LSU, and Texas) but now Alabama (where he took a recent visit) is also in the picture. No one is going to press him to make a decision so he's not in a hurry to do so. However, A&M already has commitments from four star quality corners such as Collins and Watts and is in on others. Thus, not getting his commitment will hurt but not as much as it would have in other years, when it would have been Brown or bust.
15. RB Joe Mixon: Another West Coast product and basically he's in the same boat as Jackson -- get him on campus and anything can happen.
22. OL Braden Smith: The Kansas lineman visited the A&M campus and reportedly enjoyed the visit. However, the world has offered Smith and he is no hurry to make a decision. The Aggies, however, are known to still be in the hunt as his list begins to be whittled down.
27. QB Kyle Allen: Visited A&M for the spring game and the Aggies are currently among his top schools. However, he's visited a number of other programs as well this spring and plans to visit Notre Dame over the summer. He's still a ways from making a decision.
30. DE Solomon Thomas: A quality prospect who (like Brown) is expected to take his time. He's taken visits to a number of places this spring (A&M, Arkansas, Oklahoma State, Baylor) and he's going to take more this summer (Alabama, Baylor, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Oregon). He says he's not even close to naming a top five.
36. DE Myles Garrett: Word is that A&M is the team to beat. He has a sister who runs track for the Aggies and he's been there multiple times this year. Even so, he's going to name a top eight by the end of the spring and he may well take his time on a final decision.
39. S Jamal Adams: The Hebron product didn't seem that interested in A&M early on but after an unofficial visit this spring the Aggies have vaulted into a place among his top schools. He's going on more visits this summer but the Aggies are certainly in good shape with him.
44. DE Gerald Willis III: The Louisiana product has consistently had the Aggies in his top three, along with Florida and LSU.
53. WR KD Cannon: the Aggies are on the outside looking in for now.
54. DE Deondre Clark:the Oklahoma City Douglass product has A&M in his top five along with Alabama, LSU, Ole Miss, and South Carolina. The Tigers are reportedly the team to beat.
55. LB Clifton Garrett: A&M is outside the top five of this Illinois product right now.
59. S/LB Dillon Bates: Ags are not in the top five for this Florida product.
68. WR Demare Kitt: Aggies are not among his top schools right now.
71. WR Mark Andrews:Aggies need to find a way to get him on campus as they have done with his teammate, QB Kyle Allen.
74. OL Casey Tucker: last report is that A&M was in his top three after he decommitted from USC. It helps that he plays at the same school as A&M target and fellow 250 member Qualen Cunningham.
75. Speedy Noil: The Ags are in his top three, according to a tweet last week, with USC and Florida. His coaches say it's closer to A&M and Southern Cal, but LSU always plays a factor with Louisiana prospects.
83. Nyles Morgan: says that he will take a visit to A&M this summer. He's in no hurry to name a top five at this point.
86. Qualen Cunningham: His father played at A&M with defensive line coach Terry Price in the late 80's. They are reported to be in good shape with him going into the summer when he will take more visits.
92. DT Josh Frazier: the Arkansas DT expects to visit A&M this summer.
104. WR Trey Quinn: A&M has been unable to get him on campus during the spring while other schools have.
121. S Steven Parker: the Oklahoma product visited A&M in the spring and thoroughly enjoyed himself but he's given up AAU ball to take more visits this summer.
126. S Edwin Freeman: no one really knows what's going with him but if A&M can get him on campus, they should wind up amongst his finalists.
133. Davion Hall : committed to Baylor, seems enamored with Alabama. Wasn't blown away by his trip to A&M for the spring game.
143. Marquis Ware:West Coast product who A&M needs to get on campus.
150. CB Quincy Wilson: Florida product not close to making a decision or even deciding where he is going to take trips this summer.
151. DE Davon Godchaux: This Louisiana lineman will visit A&M this summer. He's pretty open right now and will take his time on a decision. LSU and Alabama have yet to offer.
186. QB Brandon Harris: A&M is one of several schools battling for him right now including LSU and Alabama. The Ags still need to get him on campus but this could get interesting as he plans to visit fairly soon.
199. LB Kenny Young: another in a long line of outstanding prospects from River Ridge John Curtis in Louisiana. However, he's not in a hurry to make a decision and has yet to see A&M's campus.
205. OL Roderick Johnson: Texas A&M has been by to check out the Missouri product. He may visit the Aggies over the summer when he makes a swing through the Southeast.
221. Chad Johnson: the Florida product has a top three of Miami, Florida State, and LSU.
239. WR Dominique Booth: the Indianapolis product has the Aggies in his top six and he wants to make a decision by the end of May. He's already seen the A&M campus and the Aggies are competing with Alabama, Florida State, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and West Virginia. This appears to be one, though, where A&M is on the outside looking in.
248. Armani Foreman: the Texas City receiver visited A&M for the spring game and liked what he saw. However, he's indicated that he will not name a list of top schools until the fall or even after football season.
