Texas A&M football recruiting: 3-star LB Landis Durham commits to Aggies


The Texas A&M Aggies have become a recruiting powerhouse since Kevin Sumlin left the Houston Cougars to take over as the Aggies’ head coach.

The Aggies are putting together another star-studded group for the class of 2015. Entering the weekend, they had 13 verbal commitments, including verbal pledges from 5-star defensive tackle Daylon Mack, who is ranked as the country’s second-best defensive tackle prospect and the 12th-best overall prospect in the class of 2015 and 5-star dual threat quarterback Kyler Murray. Murray is the country’s top dual threat quarterback and the 20th-best overall prospect in the class of 2015.

On Sunday, the Aggies landed their 14th-commitment when 3-star outside linebacker/weak-side defensive end Landis Durham gave his pledge to the Aggies.

Sumlin hinted at the commitment on twitter and Durham soon confirmed it.

The 6’2, 222-pound Durham is from Plano, Texas and attends Plano East High School. Durahm may play with his hand in the dirt at defensive end or as an outside linebacker. He is ranked as the country’s 41st-best outside linebacker prospect, the 75th-best overall prospect from the state of Texas and the 621st-best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.

Durham also holds offers from the Baylor Bears, Boise State Broncos, Duke Blue Devils, Oregon Ducks and Texas Tech Red Raiders, among others. He took an unofficial visit to College Station over the weekend and committed.
