NCF On The Trail: B.J. Anderson

As if four commitments in a week and two in one day wasn't enough, Texas A&M made yet another recruiting splash on Friday. And it might turn out to be its biggest in recent weeks, both figuratively and literally.

The Aggies landed the commitment of one of the premier prospects in the 2016 class, Allen (Texas) High School offensive tackle Greg Little.

Juco OT Eluemunor flips to Texas A&M

Is the third time the charm?

Rockaway (N.J.) Lackawanna College offensive tackle Jermaine Eluemunor flipped his commitment from Arkansas to Texas A&M on Monday afternoon, continuing the strong momentum the Aggies have built recently on the recruiting trail.

Eluemunor, a 6-foot-5, 300-pound prospect who is originally from England, chose the Aggies after an official visit over the weekend as Texas A&M hosted Vanderbilt. It is the third team Eluemunor has committed to in his recruiting process, originally choosing UCLA on June 9 before switching to the Razorbacks on July 26.


The Aggies long have been on the hunt for a junior college offensive tackle to help add depth at the position. Texas A&M currently has two upperclassmen starting at the position: senior Jake Matthews at left tackle and junior Cedric Ogbuehi at right tackle.

Eluemunor, who was recruited by offensive line coach B.J. Anderson, can help bridge the gap to the three high school tackles the Aggies currently have committed in their 2014 class -- Kealvin Davis, Zachary Ledwik and Koda Martin -- if he can develop quickly enough.

A host of power programs offered Eluemunor, including Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Ohio State, Oklahoma and USC. He is the Aggies' 17th commitment in the 2014 class and the fourth commitment, regardless of classification, in the last 10 days, joining defensive ends Myles Garrett, Qualen Cunningham and 2015 defensive tackle Daylon Mack.

Eluemunor emigrated to the United States from London in 2009 with little football knowledge or experience. He didn't become a starter on his high school football team until his senior season. In the aftermath, Eluemunor went from unrecruited high school prospect to one of the most heavily recruited junior college offensive tackles, with more than 20 scholarship offers, in the span of about a year.

Eluemunor announced via Twitter that he's shutting down the recruiting process.

ESPN Watch List tight end Koda Martin (Manvel, Texas/Manvel) is using his time this spring to evaluate the options he has at the next level.

The 6-foot-6, 245-pound prospect has plenty of options and it seems that his offer count will only continue to increase. His father, Manvel head coach Kirk Martin, said coaches from schools across the country have been by the Manvel offices to check on Koda. Just last week, Alabama stopped by and expressed interest, though the Crimson Tide are one of the few who haven't yet offered.

But Koda Martin has his focus on three schools right now: Baylor, Oklahoma and Texas A&M. On Sunday, he attended Texas A&M's junior day to get a closer look at the campus.

Texas A&M has landed its second commitment of the 2014 class.

Timing takes Aggies out of Benenoch race

Katy (Texas) Seven Lakes offensive lineman Caleb Benenoch felt good about Texas A&M. The Aggies were the first Texas program to offer the four-star prospect and they were in his top five when he narrowed down his list of schools.

But for now, it appears the Aggies won't be in the mix when Benenoch decides where he's going.

The 6-foot-6, 321-pound recruit, who had a final five of Baylor, Oklahoma, Texas, Texas A&M and UCLA, said that the timing won't match up for the Aggies to be in the mix when it's decision time for him. Benenoch told RecruitingNation last week that timing could be a concern because he wants to wait to make a decision after he takes an official visit to UCLA.
