Even with the loss of its offensive coordinator, the Texas A&M recruiting machine continues to run smoothly and churn out more commitments. On Friday, 2014 Lufkin receiver Jamal Jeffery decided to add his name to the growing list of juniors committing early to head coach Kevin Sumlin.

"I committed to Texas A&M today," said Jeffery.

Jeffery was one of the first juniors offered by the Texas A&M staff earlier in the fall in part to his playmaking speed and quickness, along with his ability to catch passes in the middle of the field from the slot position.

The 5-foot-10, 168-pound receiver finished the season with 25 receptions for 570 yards and six touchdowns. His production increased during the playoffs as he had over 230 receiving yards and four touchdowns in the Panthers' final two games. His ability to catch the ball in traffic and his extraordinary quickness and acceleration in the slot is what attracted receivers coach David Beatty. The Aggies will graduate two senior slot receivers at the end of the season in Ryan Swope and Kenric McNeal.

Jeffery marks the sixth commitment for Texas A&M in the 2014 class, and he's the first receiver to pledge to the Aggies.
