There may be more people discussing Texas recruiting around the country but their main rival Texas A&M has quietly been burning up the recruiting trail with the class of 2012. The Aggies picked up their nation-leading 16th commitment Thursday night in San Antonio (Texas) quarterback Trevor Knight.

“It's a gut feeling,” Knight told the San Antonio Express-News. “I've been up there three times, and I just saw myself in College Station for four or five years.”

The 6-foot-2, 190 pound quarterback is a threat running or passing, racking up over 2,200 all-purpose yards and 23 total touchdowns as a junior at Ronald Reagan High. Although he grew up a Longhorns fan, Texas has not offered a scholarship and has already snapped up their quarterback for the class in Connor Brewer.

Knight chose A&M over offers from Texas Tech and TCU.

“At all three places I would have been happy," Knight told Gigem247.com. "But Texas A&M was the gut feeling."

This would be the third year in a row where head coach Mike Sherman was able to get one of the top in-state dual threat quarterbacks. Kerrville (Texas) gunslinger Johnny Manziel signed with the Aggies in February as part of the class of 2011.
