COLLEGE STATION – Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin and defensive line coach Terry Price continue to reel in top talent along the line.
Arlington Lamar defensive tackle Bobby Brown on Friday verbally pledged to play for the Aggies.
A&M’s class of 2018 now sits at 16 commitments and is considered one of the nation’s top early hauls.
“One, it’s close to home,” Brown told 247Sports. “Two, they’ve got a really good program – they’ve got a good alumni status. If you’re an Aggie, once you graduate, if you don’t have a problem working for an Aggie, you’ll have a really good life. They take care of their people.
“Also, it’s a good school. I like the campus. I had liked the environment when I went there.”
Brown is a four-star prospect and ranked as the nation’s 152nd player in the class of 2018 by 247Sports. He intends to graduate from Arlington Lamar in December and enroll at A&M in January. Verbal pledges are nonbinding.
The A&M defensive line has been a strength for the past few seasons, and Brown should add to it starting next season.
