Texas A&M added to its already large and loaded 2013 recruiting class on Tuesday by landing a commitment from athlete Cameron Echols-Luper (Auburn, Ala./Auburn).

At Auburn, the 5-foot-10, 180-pound Echols-Luper is the starting quarterback and has led the Tigers to a 16-4 record and accounted for nearly 5,000 yards of total offense in the last two seasons according to head coach Tim Carter, but in College Station, Echols-Luper will likely play receiver.

With a 40-yard dash time in the 4.4-second range, Echols-Luper should fit in well in the Aggies' Air Raid-style offense. The scheme is designed to get the ball to playmakers in space and thrives on having speedy skill position players, like head coach Kevin Sumlin and offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury had at Houston.
