Texas A&M received a verbal commitment from three-star 2019 QB Zach Calzada.

Calzada said he is "110-percent committed" and isn't "taking any more visits." He was deciding between Texas A&M, North Carolina, NC State, and Georgia but ultimately sided with the Aggies due to "Coach Fisher's history as a winner and the way he's developed quarterbacks."

Texas A&M received a verbal commitment from three-star 2019 OT Adrian Medley.

Medley adds to the second-best recruiting class in the nation, currently only behind Alabama. He was one of four commitments for the Aggies since the start of June, joining five-star OT Kenyon Green, three-star Linebacker Tarian Lee Jr., and three-star offensive tackle Blake Trainor. Medley also drew interest from top programs around the country and received offers from Alabama and Clemson.

Texas A&M has hired Leah Knight as their new Director of Recruiting.

Knight graduated from Alabama, and previously worked on Nick Saban's staff in a similar position before leaving in March. She's also worked for Willie Taggart at USF, and Mike Bobo at Colorado State. It's just another in a series of big hires for Jimbo Fisher since he took over at Texas A&M.

Texas A&M received a verbal commitment from four-star 2020 G Akinola Ogunbiyi.

Ogunbiyi (6'4/310) is viewed as one of the best guards in the country for the 2020 class, and ranks seventh at the position in 247 Sports rankings. He was also considering LSU, Oklahoma and Texas, among others. He already has prototypical guard size, which is scary considering he'll be just a junior in high school next year. He's already the fourth offensive lineman to commit to the Aggies in the 2020 class.

Texas A&M received a verbal commitment from five-star 2019 T Kenyon Green, who was previously committed to LSU.

Green decommitted from the Tigers in December, and while he was still strongly considering LSU, he'll instead be playing for the Aggies in 2019 -- assuming he honors his current commitment. The 6-foot-5, 265-pound tackle is considered one of the best players in the class, and ranks 15th overall in 247 Sports composite rankings. He'll have to put on weight, but he gets rave reviews for his quick feet and ability to mirror defensive ends. This is another high-end commit for Jimbo Fisher and company.

247Sports analyst Greg Biggins referred to uncommitted three-star 2019 QB Zach Calzada as "as pure a thrower as you'll see."

Calzada (6'3/190) is taking part in the Elite 11 Finals and showed off in a big way on Friday, with Biggins writing that he was "able to spin the football consistently through a pretty decent head wind." The analyst is particularly keen on his technical and mechanical prowess, as many high school prospects will require a fair amount of work to tap into their athletic upside. At least on that front, Calzada is looking good. While he only draws three-star love on the 247Sports composite as of current, the signal-caller has been performing well on the spring camp circuit and may well receive a fourth star later this summer.

Athlon Sports referred to Texas A&M junior LB Tyrel Dodson as a "rising [star]."

Dodson (6'2/242) got his feet wet as a four-star freshman in 2016, then came out in 2017 to blow the doors off the competition. During that most recent campaign, the linebacker posted 104 tackles (10.0 for loss), 5.5 sacks, three interceptions and a healthy eight passes defended. Athlon believes that the Aggies have a real chance to coalesce defensively under DC Mike Elko -- swiped from Notre Dame -- after they struggled mightily for long stretches of the 2017 season.

Texas A&M HC Jimbo Fisher has yet to sign the 10-year, $75 million contract he agreed upon with the university this winter.

There would appear to be nothing amiss about this, odd as the timing (or lack of timing) might seem. Per Aggies officials, the delay has come about due to changes in the federal tax code as well as Fisher's early focus on recruiting. No need to start up a Go Fund Me with this one, though, as the big-dollar coach has a "memorandum of understanding" with the school and is being paid at the large, large rate stipulated in the initial deal. Presumably Fisher will sign on the dotted line for real at some point in the near future.

Texas A&M sophomore DT Jayden Peevy (undisclosed) was limited to non-contact work during the spring.

Peevy (6'6/279) linked up with the Aggies as a four-star recruit last winter. During his first year on campus, he registered 16 tackles over the course of 11 games played. Assuming he can get back to full speed on the health front this summer, he'll be jousting for starting honors with Justin Madubuike in August camp.

Texas A&M sophomore T Dan Moore is a prime contender to earn significant playing time during the upcoming season.

Moore (6'5/317) appeared in seven games last season, making one start at right tackle along the way. He may well be in for a significant boost in playing time this year (if not an outright starting role), as the Aggies are working to replace Koda Martin on the line following his transfer to Syracuse earlier this offseason. The Dallas Morning News' Alex Miller forwards that one potential iteration could see Carson Green move from right tackle to left tackle, with Moore then taking over Green's previous spot. We'll have a more clear idea of what Aggies HC Jimbo Fisher and staff plan on doing along the offensive line once August camp gets underway.

UCF sophomore RB Cordarrian Richardson reaffirmed that he will be transferring to Texas A&M this summer.

Richardson (6'0/248) appeared to be ready to rock and roll his way down to College Station with this transfer over the winter, but there have since been mixed signals in this case, with the sophomore back not only remaining in Florida through the spring, but even going so far as to participate in spring practice with the Knights. That UCF even allowed him to participate to begin with is odd in-and-of itself. Regardless, this Texas A&M move still appears like it will be a full-go. He told 247Sports this month that he plans on enrolling in Jimbo Fisher's program in June. Richardson is something of a different cat -- his recruitment saw him back off multiple pledges, including a National Signing Day show in which he committed to Maryland via a weather balloon before flipping to sign with UCF (not in his top four programs) the next day. As a true freshman, Richardson rushed for 161 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 40 carries.

ESPN's Alex Scarborough lists Texas A&M senior Daylon Mack as the player who stood out the most during the Aggies' spring practices.

Mack was a huge get for the Texas A&M defense in 2015 -- he was ESPN's sixth ranked player -- but as Scarborough notes, he hasn't stood out on the field. That could change this year. "This spring, the defensive tackle showed up in better condition," writes Scarborough, "and that was clear during the spring game, in which he had a sack on his first play of the game." This could be the breakout season for Mack that Texas A&M fans have been waiting for.

Rivals analyst Chad Simmons tagged uncommitted three-star 2019 QB Zach Calzada as a prospect whose stock is on the rise.

Simmons notes that Calzada has "one of the strongest arms in [the Southern region]" and that the 6-foot-3, 190-pounder out of Sugar Hill, Georgia, is "off to a great start in 2018" when it comes to the spring camp circuit. For now, mid-tier programs such as Minnesota, Northwestern, Pitt and West Virginia are the ones wooing him most heavily, but Georgia and Penn State have also been sniffing around Calzada this offseason and we're guessing that he's going to start to see heavier interest from blue-chippers such as the Bulldogs and Nittany Lions as we head into the summer.

Chargers signed Texas A&M P Shane Tripucka.

Tripucka (6’3/211) took over as the Aggies’ punter his final two years in College Station and was sensational as a senior, ranking second in the NCAA in net-punting average (43.4 yards) with 46.1 gross yards per punt, the fifth-best mark in Texas A&M history. The nephew and grandson of Notre Dame basketball and football stars Kelly and Frank Tripucka, Shane is a big-legged athlete who will have to iron out his ball placement to make it in the pros.
May 3 - 5:08 PM

Browns signed Texas A&M DT Zaycoven Henderson.

Henderson (6’1/298) was a two-year starter and four-year contributor on the Aggies’ defensive line, tallying 21.5 career tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks. He faced multiple suspensions at TAMU, including an indefinite ban last December after an arrest on felony charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, tampering with evidence, and marijuana possession. Still invited to the Combine, Henderson tested as a 32nd-percentile SPARQ athlete. If he avoids further off-field trouble, Henderson is capable of becoming a useful rotational three-technique tackle.
