Texas A&M signed four-star CB Travon Fuller.

Fuller called HC Kevin Sumlin to inform him that the fax was on its way Wednesday. The 5-foot-11, 165-pound corner indicated that he's just happy to be done with all this recruiting, saying, "It is official and I am glad it is official. It has been a long process and I am glad it is over with." He received a scholarship offer from the Aggies in August, 2014, before he had even begun his junior campaign at Athens High School.

FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman reports that Cal will hire former Texas A&M OC Jake Spavital.

Cal's looking to replace Tony Franklin, who (in something of a surprise move) took the OC gig at Middle Tennessee earlier this month. As for Spavital, the three-year Aggies coordinator exited stage left in early January, after A&M and the 30-year-old "mutually decided to part ways." The Aggies struggled/fell apart at times last season, but we'll withhold judgment on the hire for the time being. He's entering an uncertain offensive situation, with Jared Goff heading to the NFL. As Feldman notes, the Golden Bears also have to replace their six leading receivers.

Four-star ATH Aaron Hansford signed with Texas A&M.

Hansford ranks as the No. 137 recruit in the country per ESPN 300. The 6-foot-3, 209-pounder out of Washington D.C. took a January visit to UCLA, but Kevin Sumlin ultimately secured the prize here. The World Wide Leader's scouting department writes that Hansford is "an impressive prospect and athlete on the hoof--long, thick and rangy." While it'll be up to the Aggies to figure out his best positional fit, ESPN notes that his receiving more resembles that of a tight end than a wideout. They see him as a defender at the collegiate level.

Pro Football Focus noted the big strides Texas A&M sophomore DE Myles Garrett made as a run defender last fall.

"He ranked third among all edge defenders behind only [Joey] Bosa and [Derek] Barnett in our PFF grades, and while the majority of that grade came from his ability to pressure the quarterback, he improved significantly as a run defender from his 2014 performance," wrote Jeff Dooley. "He started off the season with his highest grade of the year versus Arizona State, and finished it with his second-best in the bowl game against Louisville." The site ranked Garrett as the sixth-best player returning to campus. Garrett acquitted himself well in a marquee October matchup against No. 1 overall candidate LT Laremy Tunsil.

NFL.com's Lance Zierlein ranks Texas A&M P Drew Kaser as the No. 94 overall draft prospect.

"Possesses a booming right leg," he wrote. Typically, specialists aren't ranked this high, especially at this point in the process. But Zierlein loves him some Kaser, who he compares to Donnie Jones. Kaser had punts of 53 yards or more in 17 of his past 24 games. In the nitpick department, Zierlein thinks Kaser has to work on not out-kicking his coverage and adding a bit more hang time. All in all, though, he likes what he sees. "Draftable punter with the leg strength to dig his team out of a field position hole and the touch to be effective once he hits midfield," he wrote.

Texas A&M OL Germain Ifedi met with the Cleveland Browns "for an extended time," TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports.

"Well spoken and impressive," Pauline noted. That's fine and dandy, but we are among the group that feels Ifedi made a mistake by leaving school early. The 6-foot-5, 320-pounder struggles with both power and speed, a fact that for us overshadows his physical gifts. The NFL seems to disagree. Ifedi reportedly received a second-round grade from the advisory committee last winter before returning to school.

Texas A&M graduate QB Trevor Knight is set to compete with Jake Hubenak for the starting job in spring practices.

The 6-foot-1, 202-pound Knight transferred over from Oklahoma earlier this month -- he lost his starting job to Baker Mayfield last season -- but it eligible to play immediately as a graduate. The Aggies were wise to add Knight as a stopgap option and/or depth insurance following the shocking transfers of Kyle Allen and Kyler Murray. "Three quarterbacks have transferred out of A&M over the past two seasons," wrote ESPN's Andrea Adelson, who ranked Knight as the second most important transfer for next season. "Can Knight solidify the spot and make Kevin Sumlin happy?"

Four-star DE Justin Madubuike committed to Texas A&M in September.

Auburn, Baylor and Colorado were among the schools chasing a commitment from Madubuike. The No. 75 player on ESPN 300 will be taking his talents to College Station, though, and should provide them a "wrap-up and drag" tackler, per the Worldwide Leader's scouting report. The 6-foot-3, 250-pound lineman relies largely on brutal bull rushes at this point, with some refinement needed in his techniques and moves.

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt believes Texas A&M OL Germain Ifedi should have returned to campus.

"The Aggies had a tackle taken in the first round in each of the last three drafts," Brandt wrote. "Many thought Ifedi would make it four consecutive years, but I don't believe he will. He was hurt some this year. He needs to improve his strength and get more experience as pass protector." We agree with Brandt. Ifedi struggles with both power and speed, so we're not even overly excited about him as a guard. The 6-foot-5, 320-pounder reportedly received a second-round grade from the advisory committee last winter before returning to school. We wouldn't advise using a Rd. 2 selection on him.

While at Steve Clarkson Field Generals Camp, 2017 five-star Texas A&M QB commit Tate Martell spoke with UCLA freshman QB Josh Rosen about OC Noel Mazzone.

Mazzone was UCLA's offensive coordinator during the 2015 campaign, but shifted over to the Aggies earlier this month. Rosen gave Martell the scoop. Said the 5-foot-10, 192-pound baby Aggie, "When I was in [Rosen's] group, he would change the routes to the UCLA stuff, so I could go through that stuff and he was helping me fix a bunch of stuff." He also indicated that he already has a nice working relationship with HC Kevin Sumlin. Martell currently ranks as the top dual-threat quarterback in the 2017 class.

Texas A&M senior C Mike Matthews accepted an invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Matthews was named to the preseason Rimington Trophy watch list each of the last two seasons. The award's handed out annually to the best center in the country. While the 6-foot-2, 290-pound senior wasn't able to snag the award this past season, he's been among the best center prospects dating back to high school, when Rivals ranked him the No. 2 center recruit in the country. He's the son of NFL Hall of Famer Bruce Matthews and the younger brother of current Atlanta Falcon Jake Matthews.

Four-star Texas A&M WR commitment Clyde Leflore-Chriss reminds ESPN's Tom Luginbill of Notre Dame WR William Fuller.

"Both prospects were lean and lanky at this stage with a large catch radius and late bloomer type qualities," Luginbill wrote. More specifically, he noted that Leflore-Chriss is "savvy, quick and versatile as a route-runner and shows both big-catch and big-play ability. He plays bigger than his measurables suggest and is a strong competitor and has a high ceiling." The 6-foot-1, 170-pounder was ranked No. 223 on the ESPN 300.

Four-star WR Clyde Leflore-Chriss committed to Texas A&M.

Leflore-Chriss was already leaning toward Texas A&M over the likes of LSU, Ole Miss and Tennessee, but the deal was sealed on Thursday thanks to a few surprise visits from the Texas A&M coaching staff. Said the freshly committed 6-foot-1, 170-pound baby Aggie, "Coach Terry Joseph was in the house along with four other coaches. I was planning on committing before they showed up. It was very exciting. We had a couple of my friends over and my girlfriend." He's listed as No. 223 in the ESPN 300 and offers a fearlessness across the middle, though he still needs to work on his catch-consistency.

Texas A&M has hired Washington AD Scott Woodward to serve in the same capacity.

Woodward's slated to remain with the Huskies through the end of January before taking over the A&M gig for the resigning Eric Hyman. He had been Washington's athletic director for the last eight seasons. In a released statement, the Louisiana native said, "I can promise the Aggie faithful that we will compete for championships across the board and we will do so with integrity, class and a commitment to our student-athletes. I couldn’t be more excited to get started." For its part, Washington will be naming an interim AD in the coming days.

Both ESPN.com‘s Joe Schad and FOXSports.com’s Bruce Feldman are reporting that UCLA OC Noel Mazzone has been hired for the same position by Texas A&M.

Not many assistant coaching changes take us off guard, but this one did. On the surface, it's rather puzzling: While Kevin Sumlin and the Aggies have run a freelancing, adaptable spread system over the past few years under the direction of OC Jake Spavital, Mazzone's Bruins offenses have been rigid, predictable, conservative and mostly run out of NFL-like formations. If this isn't a sign that there's serious heat on Sumlin, nothing is.
