JUNE 26 UPDATE
One of the Aggies' top targets, Pittsburg (CA) Jaden Rashada, is heading to the ACC.
On Sunday, Rashada announced his commitment to the Miami Hurricanes and new head coach Mario Cristobal.

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.
This spring, the 5-foot-10, 160-pound prospect made national news in running one of the fastest 100-meter dash times in America, clocking a 10.27 in April.
Offered by A&M in May, Evans was once committed to Arkansas in this cycle.
JUNE 24 UPDATE

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.

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."

One of the best in the country, at any position, is going to visit Texas A&M officially.

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.
