AUSTIN, Texas — Texas A & M is looking to recruit players from a range of high schools in Texas’ deep-red state.
The Longhorns are considering several candidates in Texas to fill several positions in the program, including offensive line coach and tight ends coach, recruiting coordinator and wide receivers coach, and offensive line and tight end coach.
The Aggies have long been considered a contender for the 2019 national championship, but they’re looking for help at many positions on the depth chart and are exploring the possibility of taking a quarterback or wide receiver.
They could also consider a quarterback coach and offensive coordinator if they need a replacement.
Other names that are on the table are defensive line coach Matt Jones and defensive backs coach Steve Rolle, both of whom are in their fifth years as head coaches.
The job listing for Texas A McAllen is not complete yet, but the Aggies’ search for a quarterback is already underway, with a number of candidates in the area, including Texas Tech’s J.J. Dubose, Texas A’s Brandon Brooks and Texas A.M.’s Joe Wickline.
The recruiting trail is long, but Texas AMcAllen has made major strides in recent years, bringing in a number players in the class of 2018.
In the 2019 class, the Aggie class had 12 commitments and had one player commit in the 2018 class.
The Big 12 is the only conference with a full-time coach in Texas and has a history of recruiting from the Lone Star State.
The Longhorns have recruited from all corners of the state, and the Aggieland is ranked No. 1 in the country in most major recruiting categories.
Texas A&M, which has a home stadium in the Alamodome, will be one of only two teams to play in the 2019 Cotton Bowl.
The Aggies are scheduled to play a non-conference game in the Cotton Bowl against Texas State in Houston, Texas, on Dec. 2.
Texas is one of the last undefeated teams in the nation and has been ranked No, 1 or 2 in all but three of the past seven seasons.
The defending national champion and two-time defending Big 12 champions will be looking to build on a 10-2 record this season and improve to 10-3 next season.
