With National Signing Day less than a week away, much of the focus is on the uncommitted four- and five-star prospects. But less-heralded prospects often come through, and Texas A&M fans have seen plenty of examples in recent years.
Indeed, a strong case can be made that the Aggies have received more production from three-star prospects than any other school in the SEC this decade.
Here’s a look at the top eight Texas A&M players this decade who were rated three stars or lower in the 247Sports composite but went on to success. The players are listed chronologically by when they signed.
DE Damontre Moore
The particulars: 3-star prospect from Rowlett (Texas) High in the 2010 class.
The skinny: He was impactful from the beginning, even though he was a backup – to All-American Von Miller – as a true freshman. Moore started in each of the next two seasons and was a first-team All-SEC performer and consensus All-American in 2012, the Aggies’ first year in the SEC. Moore finished his three-season college career with 26.5 sacks, 45 tackles for loss, 197 tackles and five forced fumbles.
