Texas A&M lands 2016 OL commit Colton Prater

The offensive line for the Texas A&M Aggies struggled last season after the loss of two top ten tackles, but the Aggies may have found their replacement to Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews.

Enter three-star offensive lineman Colton Prater.

Prater made an official announcement of his commitment to the Aggies on social media over the weekend. The commitment gives the College Station university some life and they are excited for the future.

The 6-foot-4, 275-pound Louisiana native had offers from other SEC schools Mississippi State as well as in-state rival TCU, but ultimately decided to go with A&M.

With the commitment, the Aggies now have the 19th-ranked recruiting class in the country for the 2016 season.

That high of a ranking usually means good things, but unfortunately, the Aggies are still ranked only eighth in the SEC. It may be a tough road ahead for the Aggies, but at least they have a big guy to lead the way.
