Maybe the program isn't as out of control as we were led to believe.

Contrary to what the internet may tell you, Texas A&M football will continue to recruit talented players to Aggieland. The most recent example is four-star Manvel safety Derrick Tucker, who committed to the Aggies on Friday.

Tucker chose Texas A&M over offers from a long list of schools including Alabama, Arkansas, Ole Miss, TCU and Texas. Wait, he chose A&M over Texas? They can still do that? Tucker is A&M's first verbal commitment since the uproar just over a week ago caused by wide receiver coach Aaron Moorehead, who vaguely tweeted about the lack of commitment and honesty of young players after Tate Martell decommitted from Texas A&M.

Tucker becomes the highest rated commit in Texas A&M's 2017 class, and the third commitment of a defensive back, joining cornerbacks Myles Jones and Devin Morris. The 6'2", 195-pound safety is rated as the 20th-best player in Texas according to Texags' 2017 Texas Top 117.

Take a gander at his highlight video and be restful that despite what rival fanbases say on Twitter, the Aggie football program will, in fact, continue to function.
