As National Signing Day draws near, the Longhorns and Aggies hope to finish with strong classes

National Signing Day is one day away, and Texas A&M and Texas are on the verge of pulling in highly-rated classes. The Aggies are currently slotted at No. 7 in 247Sports's composite rankings, while the Longhorns are ranked 15th.

Texas A&M is coming off a surprising first season in the SEC in which the Aggies won 10 games and defeated national champion Alabama at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa. Riding the momentum, head coach Kevin Sumlin is poised to finish with a top-10 class. The Aggies have an astounding 31 players committed in the class of 2013, including eight who have already signed National Letters of Intent.

A&M's top commit is five-star athlete Ricky Seals-Jones. Seals-Jones stands 6'5 and weighs in at 230 pounds, and 247Sports rates him as the No. 2 player in Texas and the No. 2 athlete in the Class of 2013. Seals-Jones is projected to play wide receiver for the Aggies.

Texas's class isn't ranked as high as A&M's, but the Longhorns still have solid talent set to make the move to Austin. Four players have already signed, and 11 players are pledged to make it official Wednesday. Five-star offensive guard Darius James leads the way, as 247Sports lists him as the top guard in the class. At 6'6 and 320 pounds, he should provide a big boost to the Longhorns' offensive line.
