The Texas A&M Aggies are on top of the Class of 2022 recruiting rankings. Running back Le’Veon Moss from Istrouma in Baton Rouge vaulted the Aggies to top spot with his commitment Tuesday.

Moss had previously pledged to Alabama but backed off August 12th. He becomes the 18th commitment for Jimbo Fisher’s current class.

Former LSU running backs coach Tommie Robinson, now the Aggies backfield coach, was primarily responsible for the recruitment of the 6-foot, 200-pounder. It had been widely speculated that Moss would eventually end up at LSU, especially following his decommit from the Tide. He took official visits to Texas A&M as well as TCU and Alabama. He unofficially visited LSU.

Moss is the top rated senior running back in Louisiana and the fifth overall prospect in the state. Nationally, 247 Sports ranks him as the sixth best runner.

A very physical, hard nosed and violent runner with great vision and explosiveness, Moss runs a 10.84 hundred meters. 247 Sports compares his skills to former Jennings High star Travis Etienne.

The Aggies have just two players from the Pelican state on their current roster, Edgerrin Cooper from Covington and Jardin Gilbert out of University Lab. They also hold a commitment from Zachary quarterback Eli Holstein for the 2023 class.

Other players of note from Louisiana who played for the Aggies in the past include Speedy Noil (Karr), Noel Ellis (Karr), Richie Bean (John Ehret), Floyd Raven (East St. John ), Patrick Lewis (East St. John), Keldrick Carper (Plain Dealing), Jonathan Stewart (C.E. Byrd), T.D. Moton (Woodlawn-BR), Julien Obioha (Brother Martin), Deshawn Capers-Smith (Warren Easton) and Deshazor Everett (DeRidder).
