The Texas A&M Football team took another step towards developing a powerful defense with the commit of Dallas (TX) Kimball High School defensive tackle Justin Manning to the Aggies. Manning is the 33rd commit of the 2013 class.
Considered by many to the be the top defensive tackle as well as perhaps the overall top defensive player in the state, Manning is ranked as the No. 90 recruit in the country by Rivals.com. He’s 6’2″ 275 lbs and runs the 40 in around 5.0 seconds.

As a sophomore, Manning was named district newcomer of the year with 68 tackles, 19 tackles for loss and 5.0 sacks. He garnered double and triple teams as a junior but added 48 tackles and seven sacks.

Many thought Oklahoma was a lock to sign Manning, but David Beaty and the A&M staff continued pursuit.
The Aggies beat out both OU and TCU for his commitment.

No one knows exactly what winning the Heisman Trophy requires. We do have an idea of what you can't do. You can't play just defense. Unless you're Archie Griffin, you can't win it twice. You can't be an offensive lineman. You couldn't win it as a freshman until Saturday night, when Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel snagged the award in a decisive...
