June is an essential month for recruiting as teams can start to host high school student-athletes on official visits, and Texas A&M is kicking things off in style.

Texas A&M

The Aggies are set to host a massive recruiting weekend featuring at least 13 prospects on their official visits, including Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei five-star DT Aydin Breland (6'5, 290)

In-state, there will be some very prominent prospects on campus, and this weekend could ultimately set up how the cycle will play out. 

WR Ernest Campbell (5'8, 150) - Refugio: I am putting Campbell in the lean category for A&M. He has officials lined up with Nebraska and Boston College later this month, but it would not be a surprise to see him pull the trigger on a commitment if things progress well this weekend. 

TE Jordan Washington (6'4, 205) - Langham Creek: Washington's recruitment spiked in May, landing offers from A&M, Texas and Alabama. He has more official visits planned, so it will be necessary for the Aggies to get a big lead. 

OL Weston Davis (6'5, 285) - Beaumont United: Davis has a top six of A&M, TCU, Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. He has official visits scheduled with A&M, Oklahoma (June 9), Alabama (June 16) and LSU (June 23). With a decision coming before the start of his senior season, the Aggies must withstand a flurry of activity in June to win out. 

OL Coen Echols (6'4, 300) - Katy: Echols has been a dominant force this offseason, picking up OL MVP honors at basically every camp he attended and earning over 25 scholarships. If you asked a magic eight ball if it's likely Echols commits to A&M, it would probably give the 'Signs point to yes' answer.

OL Bennett Warren (6'7, 300) - Fort Bend Christian: Schools like Michigan, Oregon, Oklahoma and Texas A&M have all spent time at the top of his list. A&M and Oklahoma have remained consistent contenders, and Warren has June official visits planned with both. Michigan will also get him on campus. This one is very fluid, but getting the last visit here is better than the first. 

ILB Ty'Anthony Smith (6'2, 205) - Jasper: Smith has developed into one of the nation's most heavily recruited linebacker prospects, but three schools have been o the picture since the very beginning: A&M and Texas. A&M is a major player here and should be watched very closely. 

Other Names to Know: RB Caden Durham (Duncanville), LB Tylen Washington (Many, La.), OL Makai Saina (Arlington Martin)


The Coogs used a mid-week visit for College of San Mateo CB Demetrius Freeney (6'1, 185), who then zipped off to Miami (FL). He has also stopped at Oklahoma and Colorado with a June 9 decision pending. 


The Horned Frogs will host its Megacamp with six sessions planned for Saturday and Sunday, so no official visits are known. 


The Longhorns will host an elite camp this weekend, but it is still set to see an out-of-state official visit from Laguna Beach (Calif) four-star TE Ryder Swanson (6'5, 240). BYU and Oregon are listed as UT's primary competition. 

Texas Tech

Tech's big weekend is next weekend. One official visitor is on the books in  Olathe (Kan.) East OG Brett Carroll (6'5, 285). He will also visit Illinois, Minnesota and Oklahoma State. Tech needs to set the standard.
