When safety Shaan Washington (Alexandria, La./Alexandria) visited Texas A&M this spring, he got a good feeling.

As he talked with head coach Kevin Sumlin, he felt a sense of comfort. Sumlin wasn't pressuring him to commit then and there, but rather encouraging the 6-2, 210-pound safety to visit and talk with other schools and compare them to the Aggies before deciding.

But when it was all said and done, Washington liked what he saw in College Station and verbally committed to the Aggies on Monday, adding yet another defensive player to the Aggies' 2013 recruiting class.
