Junior Day Produces Four Commits

The TExas A&M football staff welcomed over 40 top junior prospects from Texas and Louisiana for the first major recruiting campus event of the Sumlin era. Aggie WEbsider's David Sandhop discusses the four commitments the Aggies' received on Saturday

Kevin Sumlin and the new Texas A&M football coaching staff rolled out the red carpet for over 40 of the top Class of 2013 prospects from Texas and Louisiana on a rainy Saturday. The Aggies ended the day with four new commitments, and others could be on the way in the coming days.

The plum of Saturday's haul is Dallas Bishop Dunne offensive lineman Ishmael Wilson who holds offers from every major football program in the region including LSU, Alabama, OU, and Texas. The 6-foot-5, 280-pound offensive tackle is a four-star prospect considered by many experts to be a Top 15-20 recruit in the state of Texas.

While Wilson was a high profile offensive lineman, the staff went the opposite direction with their second OL commit of the day when Joas Aguilar of Birdville accepted Sumlin's scholarship offer on Saturday. The 6-foot-5, 300-pound prospect combines a fluid knee bend with solid footwork and power. He had a breakout junior campaign in 2011.

Killeen Shoemaker speedster Johnny Jefferson informed Aggie Websider Saturday afternoon that he had accepted a Kevin Sumlin offer. "They talked about winning, and winning big now. They are walking the walk," Jeffereson said. "I liked everything about the university and I told Coach that I was all in." Finally, 6-foot-2, 180-pound free safety Victor Davis called Coach Sumlin after briefly weighing his options and verbally pledged to the Aggie staff.

The Aggies may not be finished reaping the benefits of Saturday's junior day and could receive commitments from players such as Johnathan Wiggins of Alief Taylor, DE Jay Arnold of Rockwall-Heath, and DE/OLB Deon Hollins to name a few.
