Top 100 Commits DE Max Wright and S Leon O’Neal
It was a good day in Aggieland as Texas A&M picked up two huge commitments in defensive end Max Wright and safety Leon O’Neal.
— Greg Powers and Gabe BrooksWright bounced back from his ACL injury to assemble a great junior season.
He recorded 70 tackles, 18 tackles for loss, nine sacks, one field-goal block, 15 quarterback hurries, and three pass breakups.
Wright assembled a great comeback year as a junior and re-established himself as one of the top overall prospects in Texas for 2018.
He has good feet for a prospect his size and he displays good instincts that allow him to close quickly.
Two Texas Longhorns targets are headed elsewhere after Cy Spring safety Leon O’Neal Jr. and Katy Taylor strong-side defensive end Max Wright announced their dual-commitments to Texas A&M on Friday afternoon.
While Wright, too, was considered a Texas A&M lean, but he’s a guy the Texas staff prioritized and appeared to have a shot at down the stretch.
It’s unlikely Texas remains active in O’Neal’s recruitment at all, but that won’t be the case with Wright.
In any case, Texas A&M was long considered the heavy favorite in O’Neal’s recruitment.
With O’Neal and Wright on board, Kevin Sumlin’s 2018 class ranks No.
