Texas A&M received a commitment from their quarterback of the future in Kyler Murray (Allen, Texas. Allen) on Wednesday afternoon and on Thursday got a weapon for Murray as wide receiver Kemah Siverand (Houston, Texas. Cypress Ridge) gave his oral commitment to Kevin Sumlin and the Aggies.
He chose the in-state Aggies over offers from Texas, Ohio State, LSU and Michigan State, among others, but yesterday’s commitment by Murray effectively sealed the deal for him to head to College Station and become the 12th commitment for the class.
Siverand recorded 25 receptions for 611 yards and seven touchdowns as a junior last season.
It’s official, I’ll be committing to The University of Texas A&M. #Gigem

The 6-0, 183-pound receiver is a four-star recruit, the No. 170 player in the nation, the No. 19 wide receiver and the No. 24 ranked player in the talent-rich state of Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings. With his pledge, the Aggies move up to the No. 4 ranked class in the nation, they were No. 6 prior to the commitments of Murray and Siverand.
Siverand has the ability to line up on the outside, but he is likely to line up in the slot in A&M’s offense to take advantage of his nimble feet and acceleration off the line that he uses to get separation from the defense.
Texas A&M will not turn their focus toward Damarkus Lodge (Cedar Hill, Texas. Cedar Hill) and Christian Kirk (Scottsdale, Ariz. Saguaro), the No. 4 and No. 5 ranked receivers in the 247Sports Composite Rankings. Kirk is a heavy favorite to pick the Aggies while there is a lot of momentum in favor of the team adding Lodge as well who was once believed to be leaning toward the Baylor Bears.
