DeSoto 2025 RB Deondrae "Tiger" Riden (5'10, 195) committed to Texas A&M over offers from Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, and Texas, he announced on social media. 

The Aggies have always had a strong connection with Riden, who bonded with the new Texas A&M coaching staff during a recent unofficial visit to College Station. 

Riden is rated as the No. 1 RB in Texas in the 2025 DCTF Rising Hot 100, checking in at No. 21 overall. The four-star is one of the five most-offered prospects in Texas. 

DCTF Scouting Report: When he decides to change directions, it's with suddenness, making it extremely difficult for defenders to get a clean tackle. Riden has helped lead DeSoto to back-to-back 6A Division II state titles, so he's proven versus top competition.

Riden rushed for 1,023 yards and 12 touchdowns to earn second-team all-district honors in 2023.
