On what was already expected to be a big day for the Aggies on the recruiting front Thursday, Cedar Hill (TX) four star receiver Damarkus Lodge shocked the world with a mid-day commitment to head coach Kevin Sumlin and staff.
Thursday was already set to be a haul for the Aggies as Lodge's teammate at Cedar Hill, linebacker Richard Moore is set for a late afternoon commitment announcement as well and most already believed it would be to the Aggies, even before Lodge's announcement.
In Lodge the Aggies pick up the 39 ranked player in the nation in the most recent Rivals.com rankings. The physically gifted Lodge held offers from every major program in the country after an expected but impressive junior season that saw him catch 72 passes for 1255 yards and 22 touchdowns in helping lead Cedar Hill to the State Title.
By securing the commitment of Lodge the Aggies continue their recent run of landing high level targets in the last month that started with the commitment of their top quarterback target in Allen (TX) dual threat standout Kyler Murray who knows a thing or two (literally) about winning state titles in Texas.
Since Murray's commitment on May 28, the Aggies have now added two four-star receivers in Lodge and Kemah Siverand as well as another four star offensive prospect in offensive lineman Keaton Sutherland and a couple high three star defensive prospects in defensive tackle Kingsley Keke and linebacker Landis Durham. The incredible run has vaulted the Aggies solely into third place in the Rivals.com national recruiting rankings.
Now, the Aggie fans will patiently wait the few hours until they almost certain to add their next commitment of the 2015 recruiting class in Moore, which will only continue to fuel the Twitter gloating marked heavily by the hash tags made popular during the recent run on talent including the popular #WRTS (We Run This State) and #WhosNext
