Texas A&M Aggies: USC recruiting

Notes: Manning, Savaiinaea visiting A&M 

September, 27, 2012
After hosting two official visitors last week, Texas A&M will host two more this weekend when the Aggies meet Arkansas at Kyle Field. One of them is a defensive tackle target they've had in the crosshairs for some time, Dallas Kimball's Justin Manning.

Manning originally planned to make an unofficial visit to campus when the Aggies hosted Florida in their season opener Sept. 8, but he had a conflict, needing to take his ACT that day. Now he will arrive Saturday for an official visit.

Tom Hauck for ESPN.comESPN 150 defensive tackle Justin Manning wants to get a better feel for Texas A&M this weekend.
The 6-foot-2, 275-pound Manning is a four-star prospect, the eighth-ranked defensive tackle in the 2013 class and 89th overall in the ESPN 150.
Texas A&M, LSU and Texas were long considered the favorites to land four-star defensive end Torrodney Prevot (Houston/Alief Taylor).

On Sunday, Prevot reached a decision -- and it’s a bit of a shocker.

Prevot confirmed to RecruitingNation he has committed to USC. The ESPN 300 end becomes commit No. 18 for the Trojans.

The 6-foot-3, 201-pound lineman chose USC after making two visits to the program this summer. He’s ranked 247th in the ESPN 300 and 19th among defensive end prospects.

Prevot is the third defensive end in USC’s top-ranked 2013 class, joining Kylie Fitts (Redlands, Calif./Redlands East) and recent commit Jason Hatcher (Louisville, Ky./Trinity).
