Stick with All Aggies for all of the latest updates in recruiting below:
AUGUST 8 UPDATE
Elite Fort Lauderdale (FL) WR Hykeem Williams is set to announce his commitment on September 23rd, and the Aggies are in contention.
Williams will decide between Texas A&M, Pitt, FSU, Georgia, Miami, and Alabama.
Williams was most recently in College Station (TX) for an unofficial visit on June 10th.
The Aggies have been trending favorably in this recruitment for some time.
The Aggies need an elite wide receiver presence in 2023 to go on top of their strong 2022 receiver haul. Williams would be that elite presence if he chooses the Aggies on September 23rd.
As a junior at Stranahan High School (Fort Lauderdale, FL), Williams caught 40 passes for 750 yards and 11 touchdowns.
AUGUST 6 UPDATE
One of the top wide receivers in the 2023 class, Catholic (Baton Rouge, LA) star Shelton Sampson Jr., has made his college decision... and he is heading to the SEC.
On Saturday, Sampson Jr. committed to the LSU Tigers, picking Brian Kelly's new-look program over the likes of Texas A&M, Alabama and Florida State.
Sampson has been on the Catholic varsity squad since his freshman season, helping to lead his team to a 33-4 record, with three state title appearances and two state championship wins in three seasons.
Sampson also held offers from Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, and Tennessee, among others.
AUGUST 4 UPDATE
David Hicks may be the top in-state target left on the board for Texas A&M football recruiting in the class of 2023. And while the Aggies have been hot on the trail, Hick maintains his patience in working towards a decision later this year.
Jimbo Fisher's program has been viewed as the team to beat for some time, and the on-field product is a big reason why. A&M's No. 1 class last cycle featured a bevy of defensive linemen recruits, so the sell is about the rising-senior being able to challenge for immediate playing time without being the focal point of the positional unit.
The off-field angle from A&M is still selling, too.
“Just everything about the school just really stands out very much,” Hicks told Chad Simmons.
As for that timeline, Hicks confirmed to Simmons he was still several months away from a decision. December or January could be announcement points for the Katy (Texas) Paetow star.
Hicks is also considering the likes of Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, Miami, Michigan State and Oregon in addition to A&M.
AUGUST 3 UPDATE
Official offer day began August 1 and they have been rolled out and promoted via social media ever since.
For Texas A&M, red-hot on the recruiting trail after the big pool party over the weekend, was as busy as any program in the mix. Interestingly enough, official tenders were sent out to all Aggie commitments, but also some key recruits committed elsewhere that TAMU continues to push for.
Among them are LSU wide receiver commitment Jalen Brown, UCLA running back commitment Roderick Robinson II, South Carolina linebacker commitment Grayson Howard, Alabama defensive back commitment Tony Mitchell and others.
Mitchell, of course, was among the weekend visitors to College Station.
JULY 31 UPDATE
An elite wide receiver has included the Aggies in his final four group ahead of his commitment date.
Baton Rouge (LA) WR Shelton Sampson Jr. is down to four schools and has locked in a decision date of August 6th.
Along with Texas A&M, LSU, Alabama, and Florida State made the cut.
Sampson was in College Station (TX) on July 30th for the Texas A&M pool party event.
Sampson will make his decision known precisely at 3:06 PM CT on August 6th.
The Baton Rouge native helped Catholic High School to back-to-back Louisiana Division 1 state championships .
JULY 25 UPDATE
A new name to know at quarterback to Texas A&M is Chris Parson.
The former Florida State commitment, who grew up in the Dallas area before moving to Tennessee last year, told Sports Illustrated's John Garcia, Jr. the Aggies made contact with him over the weekend.
Many programs have been in on the Elite 11 Finalist, who still has three official visits to take before his recruitment is over.
An Aggie offer has yet to materialize, but Parson could be next man up depending on top target Austin Novosad's final decision. The current Baylor commitment is considering A&M, Notre Dame and Ohio State along with the Bears.
JULY 20 UPDATE
An elite wide receiver has locked in a visit date to Texas A&M.
Baton Rouge (LA) Shelton Sampson Jr. will visit Texas A&M on July 30th.
July 30th is the date of the big Aggie pool party. Other top athletes will attend the pool party including Ryan (TX) LB Anthony Hill.
Sampson recently dropped his top six schools, and the Aggies are in the mix. Along with Texas A&M, Alabama, Michigan, LSU, Oregon, and Florida State are in contention for Sampson's signature.
JULY 19 UPDATE
An elite linebacker is down to seven schools with a decision date in mind, and the Aggies are in contention.
Baton Rouge (LA) LB Jaiden Ausberry dropped his final seven schools on Tuesday and has set a commitment date of August 4th.
Along with Texas A&M, LSU, Michigan, Alabama, Notre Dame, Florida, and Auburn made the cut.
Ausberry took an official visit to College Station on June 17th. He took official visits to Michigan, Notre Dame, and Auburn as well.
Aggie fans can watch Ausberry make his decision live on CBS Sports HQ at 6:30 PM CT.
JULY 16 UPDATE
One of the top offensive linemen in the state of Texas is down to five schools.
Austin (TX) OL T.J. Shanahan released his final five group on Saturday, and the Aggies are in the mix.
Along with Texas A&M, Texas, USC, Georgia, and LSU made the cut.
Shanahan is an Orlando (FL) native. He moved to Austin in the summer of 2021, where he attends Westlake High School.
Shanahan projects as an interior offensive lineman at the next level.
Shanahan recently took an official visit to College Station (TX) in June. The Aggies have been trending well in Shanahan's recruitment for some time.
If Shanahan were to commit to the Aggies, he would become the second offensive line commit in their 2023 recruiting class, joining Colton Thomasson.
JULY 14 UPDATE
Once Austin Novosad took a pause from his busy recruitment, thanks in part to the Elite 11 event to end the month of June followed by a recruiting dead period stretching until July 24, a new timeline would emerge.
Throw in a new offer from Notre Dame, and now four programs are in contention for a final decision from the current Baylor Bear commitment. A&M, BU, the Irish and Ohio State are the finalists for the Dripping Springs (Texas) High School star.
Notre Dame has yet to host him as a priority prospect, though there is a small window of opportunity at the end of July as the Irish host prospects two weekends from now. Novosad told SI All-American's John Garcia, Jr. he has not yet penciled in a visit, though he is vetting the Irish as much as possible after taking official visits to the three additional contenders.
Once looking like a late July decision-maker, Novosad could now stretch his recruitment just a bit longer to give the Irish its due diligence, he added. He originally picked Baylor back in December.
JULY 11 UPDATE
The Aggies remain in contention for one of the nation's top defensive backs.
Saint Louis (MO) safety Marvin Burks Jr. dropped his top five schools on Monday, and the Aggies are in the mix.
Along with Texas A&M, Missouri, LSU, Oklahoma, and Ole Miss made the cut.
Bruks released a top 15 in April which excluded Missouri, LSU, and Oklahoma. The trio of schools are new additions to his top group.
Burks recently tripped to College Station (TX) for an official visit. He has taken official visits to Ole Miss and Missouri as well.
JULY 9 UPDATE
The nation's top defensive back in the class of 2024 has included the Aggies in his top ten group.
Bradenton (FL) defensive back Desmond Ricks is down to ten schools, and the Aggies remain in the hunt.
Along with Texas A&M, LSU, Oregon, Miami, Ohio State, USC, Alabama, Florida, Jackson State, and Oklahoma made the cut.
Ricks has yet to visit Texas A&M.
The Virginia native transferred to IMG Academy in 2020.
Ricks is the number one defensive back in the class of 2024. He is likely the top non-quarterback in his class.
JULY 9 UPDATE
Texas A&M is in the mix for one of the top wide receiver recruits in the country.
Andy Jean, the Miami (Fla.) Northwestern star, announced his top five programs on Saturday via social media to commemorate his birthday.
In addition to A&M, Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Miami made the cut for Jean, who de-committed from Miami program on March 30.
Jean has been busy of late on the visit front. Florida received the most recent official visit to date, taking place in late June. He was in College Station for an official visit earlier in the month, hosted by fellow wide receiver and Miami native Yulkeith Brown. Miami and Florida State also got him on campus in June.
As a junior, Jean led the Northwestern Bulls with more than 700 receiving yards and eight touchdowns to his name. He also excels as a sprinter on the varsity track and field circuit.
JULY 8 UPDATE
The Aggies lost out on another top passer in the 2023 class on Friday, when Martin Luther King (Detroit, MI) quarterback Dante Moore committed to the Oregon Ducks.

Last season, Moore completed 177 of 244 of his passes (72.5 percent) for 3,046 yards and 40 touchdowns with just three interceptions, all while leading his team to a 13-1 record and a state title.

JULY 6 UPDATE
One of the top passers in the 2023 class, Martin Luther King (Detroit, MI) quarterback Dante Moore, has revealed the date of his commitment, and it is coming soon.
Moore is set to announce his decision on Friday, July 8, when he will make his final choice between Texas A&M, Oregon, Michigan, LSU, Notre Dame, and Penn State.
It is unknown whether Oregon's seemingly inevitable move out of the Pac 12 will have an impact on his decision.
JULY 6 UPDATE
One of the nation's top wide receivers has included the Aggies in his final five group and has set a decision date.
Miami (FL) wide receiver Jalen Brown in down to five schools ahead of his July 8th commitment date.

The 6-5, 190-pound pass-catcher from Lakeland, Florida received over 40 total offers.
JUNE 30 UPDATE
The Aggies are in the running for one of the nation's top corners, in South Oak Cliff (Dallas, TX) defensive back, Malik Muhammad, who released his final three on Thursday.
Alongside the Longhorns, Muhammad listed Texas and Alabama as his other finalists.
Standing 6 feet tall and weighing 170 pounds, Muhammad also has offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas, Auburn, Baylor, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Missouri, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Oregon, Penn State, South Carolina, TCU, Tennessee, Texas Tech, USC, West Virginia, Wisconsin and many more.
Muhammad played at IMG Academy (Bradenton, FL) his sophomore year, but came back to Texas to play for South Oak Cliff where he won a state championship this past season.
During the state title run, Muhammad finished with 68 tackles, six pass breakups three interceptions and one defensive touchdown.
Labeling him as just a defensive back, however, would be doing Muhammad an injustice. He's likely to remain at that position in college, but Muhammad is a terrific athlete that can make plays as a receiver, consistently lined up on the numbers for South Oak Cliff as a junior.
JUNE 29 UPDATE
The Aggies have found themselves as one of the finalists for the top defensive players in the 2023 class, in Ryan (Denton, TX) linebacker Anthony Hill.

JUNE 29 UPDATE
Texas A&M is one of two finalists for one of the most talented prospects in the 2023 class, Gaither (Tampa, FL) athlete, Eugene Wilson III.
The Aggies are one of just two schools in the running for the 5-foot-11, 165-pound speedster along with the Florida Gators.

Rashada picked Miami over Oregon, LSU, Ole Miss, Florida, and Cal.
JUNE 25 UPDATE
Texas A&M just hosted Anthony Evans, so it's no surprise the Aggies made the cut among his top schools on Saturday.
The football and track standout from Converse (Texas) Judson High School made the announcement via social media, including the Aggies along with Georgia, Oklahoma, Arkansas, TCU, Penn State, Houston and UTSA.
Evans, a projected wide receiver, visited College Station last weekend for his final planned official visit. Georgia and Oklahoma have also hosted him officially, to date.

JUNE 24 UPDATE

JUNE 23, 12 PM UPDATE
Arch Manning has committed to the Texas Longhorns.
“There’s a LeBron-like feeling about Arch Manning. LBJ’s high school games got national television exposure in the early 2000s,” Sports Illustrated's, Chris Mannix tweeted following one of Manning’s 2021 games. “Betting ESPN will give Manning — a sophomore — a lot of run on its networks, too. He looks like a special QB.”More than that, however, the impact on the Longhorns, will almost instantly turn that program into the nation's premier destination for top-level recruits.
With the nephew of Super Bowl winners Peyton and Eli, comes star power, publicity, and excitement; an excitement that has not been seen around the 40 acres since the signing of Chris Simms in 1999. - LonghornsCountry.com

One of the best quarterbacks in America isn't quite ready to decide.
Chatter around Jaden Rashada not following through with his June 18 commitment date has been prevalent since his comments at the OT7 event in Las Vegas last weekend and they have more merit now.
Multiple sources tell SI that Rashada will instead commit on June 26. It means he could theoretically take one more official visit before making the final call, if true, between Miami and Oregon.
Rashada has already visited, in order, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, LSU and Florida for officials. Cal makes the other program in his final list of top schools.
"They've got something pretty good building up there," Rashada said of College Station. "Maybe they're a trigger man away. But they made a real good impression on me and my family, so I thought it was a real good, valuable trip."
JUNE 15, 12:20 PM UPDATE
One of the best in the country, at any position, is going to visit Texas A&M officially.
While it could seem like a longshot given his commitment to USC and standing with the program that also has his brother on the roster, Zacharriah Branch will give Jimbo Fisher's staff a closer look.
According to Chad Simmons of On3, the Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman standout will be in College Station the weekend of June 24, and it will be his first time in town. Alabama and Florida also continue to court the Lincoln Riley commitment.
Branch was targeted by A&NM with an offer from Dameyune Craig and Tommie Robinson back in May of 2021.
JUNE 10, 2:30 PM UPDATE
One of the top prospects in the 2024 class will soon be in College Station.

MAY 31 UPDATE
Jaden Rashada has a date to get that first impression of College Station.
According to Sam Spiegelman of On3, the Pittsburg (Calif.) High School star will make an official visit to Texas A&M the weekend of June 3-5.
The Aggies, a program Rashada referred to as a 'dream offer,' will be among the last visits he will take before a verbal commitment is to be expected on June 18.
"Playing the biggest football, just that crowd and being in Texas is a unique opportunity," Rashada recently said. "It's something to try to make the most of, so that's kind of why I called it that."
