Closer Look at the Texas A&M Aggies' 2017 Recruiting Class Entering the Fall

With the 2016 football season looming, Scout and take a look at the Texas A&M Aggies' 2017 recruiting class ...

2017 Commitments

Known Commodity -- Grayson Reed, OT, Cypress (Texas) Creek

He's not the Aggies' highest-ranked recruit at the moment, but offensive tackle Grayson Reed is highly ranked, nonetheless, and is a potential position-versatile player with a high floor as he projects to the next level.

Reed is projected to offensive tackle, but could potentially play either tackle or guard position subject to his development in college. The 6-foot-4, 290-pounder is Scout's No. 3 offensive tackle in the Lone Star State's 2017 class and the No. 20 tackle nationally. He plays with good body control and balance for somebody approaching 300 pounds, and he's also a strong, physical player at the point of attack.

Texas A&M has three offensive tackles committed so far in the 2017 cycle and Reed is the best of the bunch.

Commit I Want to See -- Carson Green, OT, Southlake (Texas) Carroll

Several players come to mind for this category, but the one I'll go with here is Carson Green from perennial Texas powerhouse Southlake Carroll. Green possesses outstanding frame potential thanks to his 6-foot-6, 260-pound measurements. He'll need to bulk up, but there is a ton of space to do so. He could very well be a recruiting late-bloomer because of that potential, so it's good for the Aggies that they identified him early. Prior to Texas A&M's offer, his only other was from SMU, to which he was committed early in the spring before flipping in mid-April to Texas A&M.
