Texas A&M may not be playing a game this weekend, but they at least picked up a recruiting win with the commitment of Fort Bend Christian Academy center Remington Strickland.

Strickland may be “only” a three-star recruit, but he appears to be a late riser who was recruited by several top programs. On Labor Day, he only had two Power 5 scholarship offers - from Purdue and Arkansas. But he saw that chance quickly as offers rolled in from Michigan, Oklahoma, Virginia Tech, Texas, Baylor and finally the Aggies on Nov. 15.
Strickland is the 18th commit in Texas A&M’s 2021 recruiting class, with the Aggies hopeful to add several more by next week’s Early Signing Period. The class currently ranks No. 15 in the country according to 247 Sports, but is ranked No. 10 when adjusted for class size. Strickland is the fourth offensive line commit for A&M in this class, joining four-star tackles Reuben Fatheree and Trey Zuhn and three-star tackle Matthew Wykoff.
