Kevin Sumlin has seen some members of his first recruiting class leave for other schools on Wednesday, and he's helped flip some of his own, but the best news he received all day may have been when Trey Williams faxed in his letter of intent to play for the Aggies.

Williams' commitment to the Aggies hasn't really been in doubt since he verbally committed back in April, but given the nature of college football recruiting, and all the flips we've seen already today, Sumlin can move forward knowing he has his running back of the future.

Williams is ranked as the top wingback in the 2012 class by MaxPreps, and the five-star back is ranked #32 over all. He's the highest-rated running back the Aggies have signed since Christine Michael, who Williams could find himself splitting carries with in 2012.

Williams is 5-foot-10 and 176 pounds, but he also runs a 4.37 40-yard dash. Williams' signing combined with that of wide receiver Thomas Johnson give the Aggies a couple new offensive playmakers as they make the move to the SEC.

Tom Lemming called him "the most exciting player in south Texas." Though you don't have to take Lemming's word for it, you can just check out some of the highlight videos.
