Texas A&M had a very good haul on Signing Day with their 14th-ranked recruiting class and it looks like the Aggies might be able to best that effort based on their start with the 2013 class. Dallas (Texas) defensive tackle Kerrick Huggins was the latest to commitment to the SEC-bound program, picking A&M on Saturday.

"I like the tradition, the coaches, the academics, all of that," Huggins told AggieYell.com. "Really, I like everything."

A 6-foot-3, 280-pound interior presence also held offers from Colorado State, SMU and Texas Tech with plenty of others showing interest.

Huggins' Skyline High teammate, wide receiver Thomas Johnson, signed with Texas A&M and it looks like the Aggies are getting two impact players on both sides of the ball in consecutive years.

"I'm a straight defensive tackle," Huggins added. "I like to take on blockers and get in the backfield after whoever's got the ball."

The pledge gives new head coach Kevin Sumlin six commitments for 2013, three of whom play along the defensive line.
