With the departure of all-everything defensive end Myles Garrett as well as his counterpart Daeshon Hall, the Aggies will have a lot of question marks at defensive end in 2017. One of those questions may have been answered on Saturday with the commitment of junior college defensive end Micheal Clemons.
Clemons, one of the top junior college recruits in the country, also held offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Missouri, Ole Miss and Tennessee, among others. The 6’6”, 240-pound defensive end, from Cisco Junior College, is eligible immediately and will have three years of eligibility remaining. He’s expected to compete for a starting job along with Jarrett Johnson, Qualen Cunningham, Reggie Chevis, James Lockhart, Landis Durham and redshirt freshman Justin Madubuike.
Clemons is the Aggies’ 25th commitment in the 2017 recruiting class, and the third recruit to choose Texas A&M this month, joining linebacker Anthony Hines and 2018 defensive tackle Dominic Livingston. The 2017 class is now ranked sixth in the nation according to 247 Sports.
