2018 wide receiver Caleb Chapman commits to Texas A&M

The Aggies’ first commit of the day was also a wide receiver.

Top 100 recruit Jalen Preston of Manvel just committed to Texas A&M Aggies a little while ago, but he was not the first wideout to pledge to Kevin Sumlin and the Aggies on Saturday.

Fellow Texan standout Caleb Chapman of Friendswood committed to the Aggies earlier in the day, giving Sumlin the first of his two 2018 recruits on the day.

The three-star wide receiver currently attends Clear Brook High School in Friendswood, less than 35 miles away from the city of Houston. Nearly all of A&M’s 2018 recruiting class is from The Lone Star State, with only Suwanee, Georgia’s Cade Fortin, a three-star pro-style quarterback, being the lone non-Texan in the group.

Chapman is 6-foot-5 and weighs 206 lbs., standing as one of the taller wideouts in the country and certainly the largest in this class as of now. The aforementioned Preston is listed at 6-foot-2 and Dickinson wide receiver Montel Parker also checks in at 6-foot-2 as well. The Friendswood native is listed 61st overall in the state of Texas, ranked 79th at his position and is the 429th overall recruit in America for the class of 2018.

With Chapman and now Preston in tow, Texas A&M’s class still sits among the best in the nation. Sumlin’s group of now 15 commits for 2018 is ranked 14th in the nation and fourth in the SEC behind Tennessee, LSU and Florida.
