Texas A&M football signed the No. 7 class in the country in the early period, but there are still some top targets left on the board.
Jimbo Fisher is an elite recruiter and while he’s bringing in plenty of talent, there’s a part of the Aggie fanbase that’s growing impatient with the lack of titles.
Texas A&M seemed to turn a corner in 2020, though. The Aggies went 9-1 with an Orange Bowl win over North Carolina and many believed that this team deserved a spot in the College Football Playoff along with Alabama. Notre Dame and Ohio State got the nods over the Aggies and they responded with a two-touchdown win in a New Year’s Six bowl.
Things are looking up for Texas A&M and the 2021 class should carry that momentum over and it’s off to a heck of a start but it’s not done yet.
Who are the top remaining targets for Texas A&M in the 2021 class?
Texas A&M has plenty of young talent at the defensive tackle position such as Derick Hunter, McKinnley Jackson, Dallas Walker IV and Isaiah Raikes but adding someone like Tywone Malone wouldn’t hurt.
The line is going to be dominant for the next few years with a few elite defensive ends coming in as well so do the Aggies really need Malone? No, but he’d be the icing on the cake.
Right now, it seems like Ole Miss is trending with the four-star tackle from New Jersey but Texas A&M looks like the Rebels’ biggest threat. He would probably have an immediate impact in Oxford while waiting for his opportunity in College Station, but he’d have a chance to be part of one of the best defensive lines in the nation if he chose the Aggies.
Malone is currently uncommitted and ranked the No. 61 prospect and fifth-best defensive tackle in the 2021 class, via the composite.
