Coach Schlossnagle and his staff continue to dominate the recruiting in the Lone star state while sprinkling in a healthy mix of a couple high quality, low mileage, cold weather arms. Coach Schlossnagle has an industry wide reputation for the development of arms and it shows at the top of this class with the 2 Blue chip top 100 level arms in Williams and Rerick. Certainly, he hopes and expects this group to be vying for multiple trips to Omaha over the next couple of years. 

Working through this class a common theme becomes evident, all these players possess big talent with huge remaining projection. The 6-foot-4 southpaw, Cooper Williams headlines the group with his polished 3-pitch mis and lively running fastball that should get north of the 95 mark potentially before he even steps foot in College Station. Drew Rerick is a big physical power right-hander that gets well into the mid 90’s and has big spin traits to a tight two-plane slider. May be regarded as one of the best prospects in a very long while out of North Dakota. Two exceptionally athletic primary outfielders in Erickson and Kiel II follow up the big arms, Erickson has true 5 tool type characteristics as a mid 6’s runner with well above average juice and a.469 batting average across 2023 PG events. Kiel II is an elite running (6.31 60-yard) switch hitting outfielder that possesses big time juice from the right side in particular and may have the highest ceiling of anyone in the signing class. Wyatt Sanford may be the most “ready to roll” prospect in this Aggies class with a smooth left-handed stroke that’s got no shortage of thump and is a sound well-coordinated defender that should remain to the left of second for the duration. Two left-handers outside the top 5 in the class are very intriguing to me. The first is Bryce Navarre who has huge spin traits and one of the best breaking balls in the entirety of the 2024 class. Max Arlich is the other with his big durable build and high-quality command of the FB/CH. Elbert (Trey) Craig may be a position-less hitter but that type of power is a tool few in the class can match and has a real chance to be a key run producer down the line. 

 
Overall, this group has the makings of being one we look back at as the core group for the ushering in of the Schlossnagle Regime at A&M and one that has limitless upside. I’d bet on this illustrious staff’s ability to develop and the culture and tradition of winning to grab a firm hold of this talent and mold them into something special. This class may have a handful of “right away” type contributors but also quite a few that may come on strong after a bit of seasoning to the SEC level and pace of play. Look for the group of 2024 Aggies to contend year in and year out for the conference and more. Gig ‘Em.
