The Texas A&M Aggies pulled in a Top 100 player in the Class of 2019 on Saturday. Mansfield Legacy HS cornerback Jeffery Carter committed to the Aggies, giving new head coach Jimbo Fisher the 23rd hard commit for the 2019 cycle.

Carter announced his commitment to the Ags via Twitter.

Carter joins an already loaded group that’s heading for College Station next year. He’s the 12th player in the class that’s rated four stars or higher, with 11 four-star players and one five-star, that being offensive tackle Kenyon Green. Unsurprisingly, he’s one of several from the state of Texas to join the Aggies. Carter becomes the 17th player from the Lone Star State to have committed to A&M in this cycle.

As he enters his senior season, Carter is listed as both a cornerback and a wide receiver. At 6 feet tall and 186 pounds, he will likely need to beef up a bit before heading into college. But, we’ve seen that type of thing work out in the past, and that should be expected here, as well.

Prior to committing to the Aggies, Carter held offers from the Alabama Crimson Tide, Oklahoma Sooners and Oregon Ducks, among many others.

As we mentioned, Jeffery Carter is a four-star player via 247Sports Composite. He ranks 84th in the nation per those rankings, 11th among all cornerbacks and 16th in the loaded field of Texas recruits. 247Sports’ standalone service, however, views Carter as a much loftier prospect. They rank him 25th in the country and 3rd among both cornerbacks and Texas recruits.

Jeffery Carter is set to play in the All-American Bowl on January 5, 2019 as part of the West team. He’ll join the aforementioned Green, as well as defensive tackle DeMarvin Leal as Aggie commits in the event come next year.

Jimbo Fisher is building something pretty big out in College Station. With Carter in tow, the Aggies remain ranked as the 2nd-best recruiting class in the nation for 2019. Only Alabama, who also has the best in the SEC of course, ranks higher at this juncture.
