The Aggies continued to add elite talent to an already spectacular class when four-star defensive lineman Justin Manning selected an Aggie hat over others from Oklahoma and TCU.
Manning is Kevin Sumlin's third highest rated recruit according to 247Sports Composite rankings. The 6'3" 275-pounder is also ranked as the 5th best defesnive tackle in the country. When you add Manning to Carthage's Isaiah Golden, Westfield's Hardreck Walker, and Dallas Skyline's Kerrick Huggins, there is no question Texas A&M will have the talent and depth to compete long-term in the SEC.
By adding him to the class, Texas A&M jumps LSU as the 7th best class in the nation.
Dallas Kimball DT Justin Manning just committed to Texas A&M, choosing the Aggies over TCU and OU. The 2013 rich get 2013 richer. #txhsfb— Dave Campbell's TF (@dctf) December 6, 2012
A&M's DT class: Kerrick Huggins, Isaiah Golden, Hardreck Walker, now Justin Manning. Great for a three-year span; ludicrous for one class.— Greg Tepper (@Tepper) December 6, 2012
Manning passed up Oklahoma and TCU. He's Texas A&M's 33rd recruit. @coachsumlin has a top-3 recruiting class!— rolandsmartin (@rolandsmartin) December 6, 2012
