The Texas A&M coaching staff added to their defensive line haul on Father’s Day as Isaiah Raikes‍, a 6-2, 305 pounder out of St. Augustine Prep in Richland, New Jersey, has committed to the Aggies.

Raikes came on a weekend visit to College Station in April with long time friend and fellow defensive line prospect Fadil Diggs‍, who committed to Texas A&M in May. The A&M staff extended an offer to Raikes while on the visit, and the Aggies rapidly moved up his list. 

Raikes chose Texas A&M out of a final six which also included Penn State, Oregon, Northwestern, Duke and Temple, and he also held offers from the likes of Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Louisville, Minnesota and Baylor, Raikes impressed the A&M coaches with his wingspan, reach, and power. You can view his junior highlights below: 


Raikes becomes A&M’s eleventh overall commitment and the third defensive pledge in the 2020 class. 

We’ll have more analysis and breakdown soon for TexAgs Premium subscribers.

How tall is he? When we first started hearing about him, he was 6'0". Then I saw 6'1". Now, this article has him at 6'2". Every mention of him says he has a good wingspan but it's just curious how his height has increased.

Not doubting theres a little exaggeration of his height, but you do know 17-18 yr old boys can still grow right? And the wingspan negates the lack of height a bit.
Oh I Like That

He was barely 6' when we learned he was a possible target.

Now that he's committed, he's 6'2".

Try to keep up, bro.

Very underrated, is a 4 star all the way. Both of our New Jersey commits this year have 2 telling offers in their region as to how good they are defensively: Penn St., and Pittsburgh. Also, Andre White from PA last year had those same 2 schools after him (among many others) and already impressed in his short time in spring ball. It's a safe bet both Raikes and Diggs will contribute meaningfully in their time here at A&M.

We're not truly big time unless we get the kid's ranking bumped about 600 spots right after he commits
