Texas A&M‘s 2021 recruiting class may be coming together a bit more slowly than classes in previous years. But coming together it is nonetheless. The Aggies added another big piece on Saturday as four-star Pleasant Grove DE Marcus Burris committed to the good guys.
At 6’4” and 280 pounds, Burris already possesses the size to compete as an SEC defensive end, and that’s reflected in his rankings (#16 recruit in Texas, #9 DE in the country, #101 recruit in the country). Burris also held a few scholarship offers from some lesser-known programs like Alabama, LSU, Miami, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee and Texas.
Burris is A&M’s 14th commit in the 2021 recruiting class, and their 7th from the Lone Star State. He is also the second four-star defensive end in the class, joining Brooklyn recruit Jahzion Harris. The Aggies’ class is ranked 16th nationally, but considering their average rating per recruit is 10th in the country, it wouldn’t be surprising to see A&M rise higher as Signing Day approaches.
