Texas A&M lost a commit in its 2019 class late Tuesday night when ESPN Jr. 300 QB Grant Gunnell (Houston, TX/St. Pius X) announced he is decommitting from the Aggies. Gunnell, who is 6-6, 207 and the No. 2-ranked pocket passer in the nation, has an impressive offer list. He said in his announcement on Twitter that the coaching change factored into his decision but the Aggies are still "very much" in play.

Arkansas gets a big post-signing day pickup in the form of junior college defensive end Dorian Gerald. The No. 4 overall prospect in the ESPN JC 50 and the nation's top-ranked juco defensive end, Gerald was down to a final two of Arkansas and Texas A&M. New Razorbacks defensive coordinator John Chavis will certainly welcome Gerald's talents in the Hogs' front seven.

Top teams and top prospects in 2019 recruiting

The Class of 2018 was so yesterday, and recruiting never stops. With attention on 2019, top classes such as Texas A&M's are taking shape and the biggest recruiting battles have already begun.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas A&M adds another member to its signing class in the form of four-star athlete Vernon Jackson (Boling, TX). Jackson had long been committed to Alabama but in the hours leading up to signing day, it became apparent that Jackson wouldn't sign with the Crimson Tide. Instead, he becomes another key addition to Jimbo Fisher's first class in College Station.

Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher discusses the importance of recruiting nationally in order to compete for SEC championships.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

In 2017, only 19 of the top 50 prospects in Texas and only five of the top 20 prospects stayed in state. This year 31 of the top 50 stayed in state. Texas (16) and Texas A&M (7) combined for 23 signees in the state's top 50 this year after combining for just 10 of the top 50 last year.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

By adding four last-minute ESPN 300 prospects to the class on signing day, Texas A&M saw its class surge from 24th at the start of the morning to 16th at the end of the day's action. That's a solid jump for Jimbo Fisher's class, which needed a lot of difference makers coming into the week.

National signing day is in the books. Florida State and USC rallied for big finishes while other teams saw high hopes fizzle out at the finish line.

Fisher thinks A&M heading in right direction (1:03)

ESPN 300 wide receiver Jaylen Waddle has committed to Alabama. Waddle, the No. 77 ranked prospect, chose the Tide over Texas A&M, FSU and TCU among others.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

The signing of ESPN 300 QB James Foster (the fifth-ranked dual threat quarterback in the nation), gives Texas A&M a top-10 QB recruit for the fifth time in the last six classes. Only in 2016 did the Aggies fail to sign a top 10-ranked QB.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas A&M's class moving on up. After starting the day at No. 24 in the ESPN Class Rankings, the Aggies are currently up to No. 17 on the strength of additions of ESPN 300 prospects Bobby Brown, Tank Jenkins and James Foster. The seven-spot jump is the biggest today of any school.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Four-star defensive end Jeremiah Martin (San Bernardino, California), commits to Texas A&M. He's 6-5, 225 and another key addition to Jimbo Fisher's class on what continues to be a strong signing day.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas A&M commit Tank Jenkins, the ESPN 300 guard from Montgomery, Alabama, is the first ESPN 300 prospect from the state of Alabama to commit to the Aggies in the 13 years ESPN has done recruiting rankings, according to ESPN Stats and Information.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Jimbo Fisher closing this class out strong. Texas A&M adds another ESPN 300 prospect in QB James Foster, the fifth-ranked dual threat QB in the country and No. 124 overall in the ESPN 300. Foster chose the Aggies over FSU, Alabama and LSU.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas A&M's 2018 recruiting class, which was No. 24 nationally when signing day began, has moved up into the top 20 on the strength of flipping ESPN 300 defensive tackle Bobby Brown. Look for the class to continue to move up as more commitments become finalized.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Landing ESPN 300 DT Bobby Brown is a big get for Jimbo Fisher and Texas A&M on signing day. Brown was originally committed to the Aggies before flipping to Alabama in December. Not letting top in-state interior defensive linemen venture out of Texas will be important for Fisher's success in the SEC.

Tom VanHaaren ESPN Staff Writer 

ESPN 300 defensive tackle Bobby Brown flipped his commitment from Alabama to Texas A&M on signing day. Brown had previously been committed to the Aggies, decommitted in December and pledged to the Tide. He now reverses that decision and signed with Texas A&M.
