The Missouri Tigers are reeling a bit from the loss of one of the their commits earlier today when the reports came out that Texas A&M actually won the battle to keep the star recruit in state rather than lose him to the other Big 12 team jumping to the SEC. Edmund Ray was a great defensive end/defensive tackle prospect that Pinkel had supposedly secured, but today is National Signing Day for that reason — players haven’t completely committed or even made up their mind yet. That fax is the golden ticket.
Tom Lemming says, “He plays both DE and DT but looks more comfortable inside where he can use his strength to his great advantage. Dominates the point of attack, shows enough quickness and body control to pressure the QB, and is able to keep his feet under him and make tackles when in pursuit. A four-star player with five-star potential.”
Texas A&M certainly picked up a nice bonus there.
