The Texas A&M Aggies received more good news on Monday night when 4-star quarterback Kellen Mond chose College Station as his future home beginning in 2017.

Mond, at 6'2 1/2", 201 pounds, is the nation's No. 3 dual-threat passer and No. 7 overall quarterback, according to 247Sports.

Mond's commitment is the latest in a flurry of recent pledges to A&M. Since May 13, the Aggies have received 10 commitments after wide receivers coach Aaron Moorehead's misguided Twitter rant in early May cost A&M some potential recruits. This, of course, came just months after the Aggies saw a pair of former big-time QB prospects—Kyle Allen and Kyler Murray —transfer and 2017 commit Tate Martell decommitted.

Mond's arrival will make everyone forget about the recent issues at the quarterback position. He's the ideal quarterback for head coach Kevin Sumlin's fast-paced spread offense. Mond has an excellent arm and is a fantastic athlete who throws well on the run. His pocket awareness is much more advanced than the typical dual-threat passer.

He's the second QB commit to the class of 2017, joining 3-star passer, Connor Blumrick. Mond is a polar opposite of Blumrick, as Blumrick is more of a traditional pocket passer. Both quarterbacks are on track to graduate early and in enroll in January.

With Mond's addition to the class of 2017, the Aggies have now moved up to No. 8 in 247Sports Composite Rankings.

With the momentum of Mond's addition as well as his teammate, linebacker Santino Marchiol who committed last week, the Aggies are on a roll and could be headed for Sumlin's top class since he came to Aggieland back in 2012.
