2025 4-Star out of Dallas (TX) set to release his Top 10 program list

Texas A&M and head coach Mike Elko are still in the market for one or two more linebackers in the 2025 recruiting class after landing 4-star linebacker Kelvion Riggins earlier this month while recently landing in 2025 4-star linebacker Riley Pettijohn’s Top 6 program list.

Speaking of program lists, 2025 4-star linebacker Elijah Barnes out of Dallas, Texas, is coming off his recent visit to College Station last month during one of Texas A&M’s junior days, and by all accounts, the visit was a rousing success while Barnes was able to further his relationships with the Aggies coaching staff.

On Wednesday, Barnes announced that he will release his Top 10 program list on March 1, and out of his nearly 30 offers, the Aggies are destined to be among the ten considered programs.

According to 247Sports Composite, Barnes is currently positioned as the 83rd-ranked player in the 2025 cycle, the 12th-ranked linebacker prospect, and the 14th-ranked player in Texas.

Barnes is set to enter his senior year at Skyline High School. During his 2023 junior campaign, Barnes recorded 65 tackles (57 solo tackles), three sacks, five interceptions, and 12 tackles for loss on the year.

Like Kelvion Riggins, Barnes has a nose for the football, possessing the pursuit speed and understanding of blocking angles in the run game, with the instincts and athleticism to cover the middle of the field.
