Texas A&M continued its strong recruiting efforts in the Class of 2019 on Wednesday night as four-star forward Tyreek Smith pledged to the Aggies.

The third four-star commitment for Texas A&M in the Class of 2019, the 6-foot-8 Smith is a run-and-jump frontcourt player who is best known for protecting the rim and catching lobs. With the Aggie coaching staff doing so well with a similar frontcourt athlete in Robert Williams, and it is easy to see what Smith could be capable of.

Smith is a bit more raw than Williams at the same stage, especially on the offensive end, but the Aggies are getting a potential double-double threat who should bring a lot of defensive versatility to the next level. Smith joins four-star guards Sahvir Wheeler and Chris Harris so far in the class as the Aggies are bouncing back nicely in this class after a few years without a lot of four-star prospects.
