Four-star 2017 LB Santino Marchiol committed to Texas A&M.

Speaking with 247Sports, Marchiol said, "At Texas A&M, I felt like it was the only place where they wanted me to be the first to commit but they never pressured me into it like these other places. I had a great relationship with everyone there, the players and the coaches." LSU, Ole Miss and Tennessee were just a few other SEC squads looking to secure the 6-foot-2, 222-pounder's commitment. He ranks as Rivals' No. 22 outside linebacking prospect for the 2017 cycle.

ESPN's Tom Luginbill called Texas A&M three-star 2017 RB Travis Etienne "one of the more exciting prospects in the second phase of evaluation."

"Etienne is a powerful and explosive back who has long-field speed and the ability to be a home run threat every time he touches the ball," Luginbill wrote. The Louisiana native racked up 2,938 yards and 50 touchdowns as a junior at Jennings High in 2015. Luginbill believes that while he "[m]oves like a scatback," he also "has the build to develop into an every-down carrier at the next level."

If Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett's testing numbers had taken place at the 2016 NFL Combine, he would've finished No. 1 among defensive linemen in the 40-yard dash and broad jump and No. 2 in vertical leap.

"He's 6'5", 265 pounds. He runs a 4.46. What are we talking about? That is ridiculous," ESPN analyst Tim Tebow said. "He broad jumps a 10-foot-9. That is ridiculous. Oh by the way, his vertical jump is 38.5 inches. He can leg-press 1,100 pounds." That athleticism is why Garrett is generation Jadeveon Clowney-level buzz. Garrett, ranked No. 1 in the class by Mel Kiper, has 132 tackles, 33.5 TFL, 24 sacks and 20 quarterback hurries over two seasons on campus.

Four-star 2017 ATH Keldrick Carper committed to Texas A&M.

Carper took to Twitter to announce his commitment. He has potential as both a wide receiver and corner at the collegiate level, though 247Sports' Brian Perroni noted that the 6-foot-3, 185-pounder "will likely play in the secondary for A&M, much in the same role that Donovan Wilson currently plays." He ranks as Rivals' No. 30 prospect at the mythical "athlete" position.

Three-star 2017 RB Travis Etienne committed to Texas A&M.

Etienne might not be considered a four- or five-star stud at this point in his recruitment, but the numbers the 6-foot, 195-pounder posted as a junior at Jennings High in Louisiana are downright terrifying. Last season, he rushed for 2,938 yards and -- you might want to sit down for this one -- 50 touchdowns. "I really didn't notice what I was doing, or what I had accomplished. It was after the season when people started asking me and telling me about it," Etienne said. He is an absolute burner who has been unofficially clocked at 4.24 and 4.33 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

An NFL personnel executive who spoke with NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah compared Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett to Julius Peppers.

"I wouldn't put [Garrett] in [Peppers'] class just yet," Jeremiah wrote, "but he's still very young and his best football is ahead of him." A sign of the analyst's respect for the 6-foot-5, 260-pounder -- in writing up Garrett's weaknesses, Jeremiah opened with the sentence, "Garrett is a complete player." He would like to see the Aggies star improve his consistency in disengaging from blocks. We will have a chance to see him in a spotlight showdown with UCLA come the first weekend of September. As Jeremiah noted, "Garrett is the premier edge rusher in college football and he'll be squaring off against one of the best offensive tackles in the country, UCLA's Connor McDermott. This will be a good test for Garrett, and I think his quickness and power will allow him to harass QB Josh Rosen for four quarters."

NDT Scouting's Kyle Crabbs believes Texas A&M senior WR Josh Reynolds could see a rise similar to former TCU WR Josh Doctson in 2016.

Crabbs wrote that there was a "legitimate possibility" that Reynolds takes that next step. He noted that the "skill-set is there" for the 6-foot-4, 190-pounder. Last season, Reynolds hauled in 51 passes for 907 yards and five touchdowns. In October, NFL Media's Chad Reuter called him "one of the best receivers in the country." As Reuter noted then -- and it is just as true now -- Reynolds' statistical output has a natural handicap on it, with fellow wideouts Ricky Seals-Jones and (especially) Christian Kirk siphoning off targets. He will also have to navigate the quarterbacking wilds that will come with transferring Oklahoma QB Trevor Knight taking over at signal-caller. Though Texas A&M's quarterback situation was such a mess down the stretch in 2015 that any sort of stability at the position should help everybody involved.

Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett has reportedly run a sub-4.5 second 40-yard dash.

He also reportedly boasts a 38 1/2-inch vertical jump and a broad jump of 129 1/2 inches. "Whether the Aggies star is draft-eligible in 2017 or 2018, his athleticism and combine testing as a defensive end will generate a scouting buzz on a level with 2014 No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney," NFL Media noted. ESPN's Mel Kiper says Garrett is the best draft-eligible NFL prospect in college football.

College Football 24/7 writer Chase Goodbread wrote that Texas A&M redshirt junior RB Keith Ford is "primed to electrify the Aggies' backfield."

"Ford's raw talent merits listing higher [on the list of impact transfers for 2016]," Goodbread explained, "but we'll anchor him here until Kevin Sumlin's offense brings the position out of relative anonymity." The 5-foot-11, 211-pounder was a five-star recruit out of high school and signed on with Oklahoma as part of the 2013 class. In 2014, his last year with the Sooners, he rushed for 392 yards (5.5 YPC) and five touchdowns on 71 carries. With the Aggies in 2016, he will be reunited with former Sooner QB Trevor Knight, who himself transferred over to A&M (and subsequently won the starting job) earlier this offseason.

CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang ranked Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett as the No. 2 underclassman prospect for 2017.

Only fellow SEC-bruiser Leonard Fournette ranks ahead of Garrett among Rang's underclassmen. The analyst referred to the 6-foot-5, 260-pounder as "explosive off the edge." The stats he has posted through just two years with the Aggies are downright terrifying. He is coming off a 2015 campaign which saw him record some video game numbers, including 19.5 tackles for loss, 11.5 sacks and five forced fumbles. He stated earlier this offseason that he wants to be one of the best who ever played. Rivals ranks him as the No. 2 draft-eligible player while ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. bests that by placing him at No. 1. Don't expect him to stray far from the top-5 on most boards this coming season.

Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett enters his junior season with 26 career sacks.

NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter pegs him as the fifth-best player in college football. "His burst, flexibility, length and acceleration make him a tough ask for any left tackle," Reuter wrote. ESPN's Mel Kiper has Garrett atop his first Big Board.

Four-star S Derrick Tucker committed to Texas A&M.

Hey, look at that, the Aggies didn't screw this one up. Signs and wonders. Not only did they land the commitment, they also landed a nice punch to the likes of Alabama, LSU and TCU. That power troika believed they were in line to possibly snag the commitment, but no such luck. Tucker stands at a lanky 6-foot-3, 180 pounds and ranks as Rivals' No. 112 prospect for the 2017 recruiting class (No. 10 safety). Outlet editor Mark Passwaters noted that "[h]e's got excellent speed and anticipation, and he's not afraid to play on the other side of the line of scrimmage if he's up in run support."

Rivals tagged Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett as the second-best draft-eligible player for 2017.

"Garrett is a freaky athlete who needs to improve his inside pass rush but his length and quickness make him an NFL franchise pass rusher," wrote recruiting director Mike Farrell. Colleague Adam Gorney added that the 6-foot-5, 247-pounder is a "phenomenal athlete who also hits." Last season, Garrett recorded 59 tackles (19.5 for loss), 11.5 sacks and five forced fumbles. As Gorney notes, if a quarterback like Deshaun Watson or Brad Kaaya is not selected with the No. 1 overall selection in 2017, Garrett could well be in play for it. He is a legitimate wrecking ball of a defender.

Browns signed Texas A&M C Mike Matthews.

Matthews (6'2/290) is the son of Hall of Famer Bruce Matthews, brother of 2014 Falcons first-round pick Jake Matthews and cousin of Pro Bowl linebacker Clay Matthews. He's flattered by the conflation, but that doesn't mean Mike's NFL dreams are DOA. He can't fix the poor athleticism (5.45 forty, 8.09 3-cone, 24.5-inch vertical), but he's as smart, technically sound and tough (has played through a broken foot) as you'd expect from an apple shaken off the Matthews tree. For those reasons, NFL Media's Gil Brandt believes he'll develop into a long-time NFL starter. Matthews received a signing bonus of $7,500 from the Browns. He'll head to summer camp No. 3 on the center depth chart behind Cam Erving and Garth Gerhart. Party on.

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranked Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett No. 1 on his first 2017 Big Board.

No big surprise here. The 6-foot-5, 247-pound Garrett is the edge rushing savant every franchise salivates over. He combines mouthwatering measureables with huge production, producing 24 sacks and 33.5 tackles for loss in his true freshman and sophomore campaigns. That run came in the sport's toughest conference, often facing chips or double teams.
