2022 College Recruiting - 16 Commits

Last Player Grade Published on Feb. 5, 2022
Texas A&M logo S Jacoby Mathews (Ponchatoula, LA) commits to Texas A&M  View Class

It was impossible to ignore Texas A&M during this cycle because the Aggies were seemingly in on every top prospect. Mathews (6-2, 191), the top safety prospect in the nation, put an exclamation point on Texas A&M's class Wednesday night. The Aggies signed three of the top-seven safety prospects in the nation. It's a tall, rangy group led by Mathews, who has a perfect combination of size and speed and is built like a linebacker but has the athleticism to do so much more.

Jacoby Mathews' Player Grade: A+
Texas A&M logo DL Shemar Stewart (Opa Locka, FL) commits to Texas A&M  View Class

Stewart (6-5, 268), the No. 5 defensive tackle prospect, was a long-time lean to the Aggies, and although Miami made it interesting in the end, the final result wasn't a big surprise. How good is Texas A&M's defensive line class? The Aggies signed three of the top-five defensive tackle prospects in the nation. All three prospects are potential inside/outside guys. It's an incredible haul of talent that shouldn't be understated. Stewart has elite physical traits with only some injuries slowing him down at times over the past two years.

Shemar Stewart's Player Grade: A
Texas A&M logo ATH Deyon Bouie (Bainbridge, GA) commits to Texas A&M  View Class

Bouie (5-11, 190) is probably the top-rated athlete in Georgia and a type of player who can do everything you ask on a football field. He can line up on either side of the football and make an impact. Bouie's speed is top level, with his burst allowing him to get to the edge and then outrun a defense to the end zone. Some are projecting Bouie as a defensive back, but when you have his type of speed and quickness most coaches want the ball in your hands, so I think Bouie might end up at wide receiver. Even if he does play defense, Bouie will have to get involved in the return game.

Deyon Bouie's Player Grade: A
Texas A&M logo S Bryce Anderson (Beaumont, TX) commits to Texas A&M  View Class

Texas A&M beat out Texas and Alabama in a tough recruiting battle for Anderson (6-0, 190), one of the gems among the secondary prospects in Texas. Anderson is tremendous athlete who plays quarterback in high school, and I think he could end up in the secondary or at wide receiver. Anderson has track speed, and it translates well to the football field. Without a ton of snaps on defense, it's hard to evaluate the individual skills. But Anderson is a special athlete who has all the physical tools necessary to see the field in a variety of ways. He's going be put in the secondary first, but if it doesn't work out, Anderson will be an asset on offense and special teams.

Bryce Anderson's Player Grade: A-
Texas A&M logo DL Jadon Scarlett (Argyle, TX) commits to Texas A&M  View Class

Scarlett (6-2, 260) was an early target for the Aggies and someone they wanted to get committed during the summer. Scarlett has the body to put on more mass and work his way into being an interior guy who can play the three-technique or possibly the nose guard. He is a decent interior pass rusher who will make a mark on passing downs. Scarlett is good with his hands and has quick feet. He will gain strength as he ages, and that will assist him in fighting through blocks at the next level. I think Scarlett can work himself into a starting role or at least a consistent presence in a rotation of interior linemen.

Jadon Scarlett's Player Grade: C+
Texas A&M logo K Ethan Moczulski (Mead, WA) commits to Texas A&M  View Class

Moczulski (5-11, 185) gets a five-star rating from Kohl Kicking and a rare six-star rating by Chris Sailer's kicking website. Sailer's site also has him as the top-ranked kicker in the nation. The website says Moczulski "gets the ball up quick off the ground and easily has 55+ yard range. His kickoffs are amongst the best in the country, FBS read. Moczulski is a big-time competitor that thrives under pressure."

Ethan Moczulski's Player Grade: B
Texas A&M logo LB Ish Harris (Pilot Point, TX) commits to Texas A&M  View Class

Harris (6-3, 195) is a two-way player in high school and had a few programs interested in using him as a running back or possibly an outside wide receiver. But defense is more likely to be Harris' calling, and I think he could work out as an off-ball linebacker or a standard middle linebacker. He could also work as a safety/linebacker hybrid who will defend in the box. Harris is an aggressive, and that will serve him well as he goes to defense full time. He has length and is good enough in space that playing on the weak side looks like a natural fit.

Ish Harris' Player Grade: B-
Texas A&M logo S Jarred Kerr (Lexington, TX) commits to Texas A&M  View Class

Kerr (6-0, 187) is listed as a wide receiver, but all I see is a safety eager to lay painful hits on wide receivers who come in his space. He looks physically strong, and he's a two-way player who tries to play nearly every snap in the game, including special teams. Kerr rushed for consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, and his athleticism goes beyond the football field - winning the Texas long jump title in his classification. Kerr can run, but his long speed is a bit of a question mark. He is not a technically sound tackler yet, probably because he plays so many positions. Once Kerr is allowed to commit his focus to playing in the secondary, he could be a good tackler.

Jarred Kerr's Player Grade: B
Texas A&M logo LB Martrell Harris (The Woodlands, TX) commits to Texas A&M  View Class

Harris (6-2, 210) is a solid, no-nonsense type of prospect who will get the job done on the second level of the defense. He can do a variety of things; I think Harris generally fits well as an off-ball linebacker, but I see a lot of potential when he's in a pass-rushing role. Harris should do well as a designated blitzer coming off the edge or through the middle. His backside pursuit grades out very well. Harris has a great burst, but his overall speed is a question mark. He is primarily a north-south player, and I would be conservative when using him in space.

Martrell Harris' Player Grade: B
Texas A&M logo WR Isaiah Sategna (Fayetteville, AR) commits to Texas A&M  View Class

Sategna (5-11, 172) comes from an extensive track background. His father has been a college track and field coach, and his mother competed for Jamaica in the 1992 Summer Olympics. Sategna is also a track star and runs the 100-meter dash in under 11 seconds, but he's also a football player and quite the playmaker. He averaged over 22 yards per catch as a junior while doing a lot of work on the outside.

Sategna's work on the track transfers well to the gridiron. He is fast and explosive right off the snap, makes sharp cuts and looks smooth coming out of his breaks. Sategna is a guy who you give a certain number of touches per game because you know he will break one of them. As good as the Texas A&M offense has been, I think the team has been missing that explosive element. Maybe Sategna can bring that to College Station.

Isaiah Sategna's Player Grade: B+
Texas A&M logo WR Noah Thomas (League City, TX) commits to Texas A&M  View Class

Thomas (6-5, 185) has great size, and he's a multi-sport athlete who also plays cornerback. At this stage, Thomas is more of an athlete than a football player, so the question is going to be how much that raw athleticism can be developed into a football player.

Thomas has played plenty of football in high school and proved to be a big-play guy in his junior season. He is a pretty tough, and with his size and frame, Thomas could easily grow into being a tight end. Thomas has decent hands and good footwork off the line. There's still a ways to go for him on the football field, but this is the type of prospect who will reward the coaching staff that has the opportunity to develop him.

Noah Thomas' Player Grade: B
Texas A&M logo OT Hunter Erb (Haslet, TX) commits to Texas A&M  View Class

Erb (6-6, 300) is one of those players than kind of wins you over with pure effort and aggression. He goes all out on his blocks and has quite the nasty streak. I think Erb does a lot of things pretty well - he is good with his hands and good at the initial point of contact. He has experience playing left tackle and will continue to do so as a senior, so he'll be facing the best defensive linemen in his area. Erb is a big athlete with a good wingspan and natural tools that will be developed further at the college level. I think Erb should be able to improve his pass blocking with summer camps and a full set of reps in the fall. He has a lot to offer and a ton of upside.

Hunter Erb's Player Grade: B
Texas A&M logo QB Connor Weigman (Cypress, TX) commits to Texas A&M  View Class

Two weeks after making their offer, the Aggies got the arm of their 2022 class with highly regarded in-state prospect Weigman (6-3, 200). As quarterbacks in this cycle go, Weigman might have the best overall tools from arm talent to athleticism, and he can combine everything into one package.

Weigman can move very well and makes strong throws on the run. He isn't a natural running quarterback, but he can be very productive on designed scrambles and has the agility to get the extra yards in the open field or extend the play in the backfield. I have some occasional concerns about Weigman's accuracy and his tendency to make some throws more difficult than the need to be. Weigman has to learn how to take the easier option even when the big play can be challenged. Some adjustments there are the only things holding Weigman back from a full 'A' grade.

Connor Weigman's Player Grade: A-
Texas A&M logo DE Malick Sylla (Katy, TX) commits to Texas A&M  View Class

If you are one of the many bettors who check this site and want some value on a 2021 CFP Champion ... you could do a lot worse than Texas A&M. The Aggies are stacking strong recruiting classes together, and Sylla (6-6, 233) promises to be one of the best defensive linemen in the 2022 class. He is very much a quick-twitch athlete with a lot of length. He has a big frame, but I think Sylla should stay in the 250-255-pound range so he can have the ability to play on the end or do some stand-up edge rushing. Sylla will have to get better with his bend, but he has the motor and the explosion on the snap to be a top-end pass rusher.

Malick Sylla's Player Grade: A-
Texas A&M logo OL/OT P.J. Williams (Dickinson, TX) commits to Texas A&M  View Class

It was a hot week on the recruiting trail for Texas A&M, which is quickly putting together the foundation of a special class. Williams (6-4, 262) is a well-built lineman with good strength and a great frame with no bad weight on him. He has next-level movement, especially with his lateral slide step, which keeps edge rushers out of the backfield.

Williams is showing more aggressiveness in the run game too, and he is a good enough athlete to consistently get to the second level. As he continues to put good weight on and gain comfort playing with that additional size, we'll get a better idea of whether Williams will be a guard or a right tackle.

P.J. Williams' Player Grade: B+
Texas A&M logo TE Donovan Green (Dickinson, TX) commits to Texas A&M  View Class

Green (6-4, 220) joined his teammate, offensive lineman P.J. Williams, in making a pledge to the Aggies. On early viewing, I have Green as the best tight end in the nation. He's a true pass-catching flex tight end who can lineup at multiple positions and provide mismatches all over the field.

What separates Green from most flex tight ends with his skill set is that he's also a willing blocker and very productive in doing his part for the run game. Green is an all-around tight end, and it's a position that Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher has shown he will spotlight when he has a special talent. Green fits the bill of a special talent.

Donovan Green's Player Grade: A-
