2025 4-Star CB Deyjhon Pettaway details his visit during Texas A&M’s junior day

Amid all the news surrounding Texas A&M head coach Mike Elko’s tight grip on the transfer portal, already gaining 22 players in the last two months, Elko and his now complete staff hosted a long list of 2025 prospects this weekend, including four-star cornerback Deyjhon Pettaway.

According to On3, Pettaway is currently positioned as the 22nd-ranked cornerback and the 31st-ranked player in Texas. Entering his senior season at Paetow High School in Katy (TX), the rising defender shares a deep connection with Texas A&M, as his brother is Aggies linebacker Daymion Sanford, who will be competing for a starting position in 2024.

In a recent conversation with AggiesToday, Pettaway detailed his visit, providing a future outlook for a Texas A&M program under new management.

“Man, the new staff is great. You can really tell they want change, the conversations hold more meaning and weight. They have the teaching, resources, mindset, and mentality to win.”

While Pettaway’s instant connection with his brother Daymion stands out the most, Mike Elko has already embraced A&M’s culture, wiping away the consistent mediocrity and shattered hopes that plagued former head coach Jimbo Fisher during his last two seasons at the helm.
