There may not be much high-level momentum in the 2018 recruiting class for the Texas A&M Aggies, but the 2019 received another boost on Sunday with the addition of Houston Madison cornerback Bobby Wolfe:

The 6’3, 190-pounder was also a target of the Texas Longhorns after picking up his offer on January 23. At the time, the offer seemed to make an impression on Wolfe, but the new coaching staff in College Station was able to convince him to end his recruitment for a second time while visiting for a Junior Day.
With the latest rankings update, Wolfe took a big jump — he gained his fourth star and moved from No. 37 nationally at cornerback to No. 24, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
The size of the Texas defensive backs class in 2018 and another strong year of talent in state in 2019 means that the Longhorns can’t sell early playing time to the same extent and can afford to miss on a few top prospects.
Clearly, that’s already happening with Wolfe and Dallas Bishop Dunne safety Brian Williams, the state’s No. 2 prospect, having already committed to A&M.
Now the question is whether the staff chooses to keep on pursuing those two prospects or opts to focus on uncommitted players like Cuero’s Jordan Whittington and Mansfield Legacy’s Jalen Catalon, who were both on campus this weekend.
