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.
