Texas A&M has had its class of 2010 recruiting class wrapped up for weeks now, but Wednesday it became official as the Aggies signed four prospects in the class on the first day of the early signing period.
And in a change of pace, the Aggies under head coach Mark Turgeon signed a class heavy in homegrown Texas talent. A&M received Letters-of-Intent from Houston Bellaire forward Tobi Oyedeji, Dripping Springs forward Daniel Alexander and DeSoto center Keith Davis to go along with the re-signing of Humble Christian Life forward Kourtney Roberson.
"Three in-state guys, actually Kourtney is going to school in Texas which technically makes it four in-state guys for us which we have worked very hard on in recruiting and we just feel good about it," Turgeon said.
