2025 4-Star LB out of Dallas (TX) is set to visit Texas A&M on Jan. 27

After hosting a plethora of 2025 prospects last weekend, Texas A&M head coach Mike Elko is close to adding his first player in the Aggies 2025 class, as four-star cornerback Deyjhon Pettaway is now predicted to land with the program after his recent visit.

Sticking to defense, more prospects are set to descend on College Station in the coming weeks, including 2025 four-star linebacker Elijah Barnes out of Skyline High School in Dallas, Texas.

According to On3’s Gerry Hamilton, Barnes is expected to visit Texas (Jan. 20) and Texas A&M (Jan. 27) on consecutive Saturdays, as A&M’s bitter in-state rival is coming to the SEC in 2024, making recruiting Texas-based recruits that much more competitive in the coming years.

Barnes is currently positioned as On3’s 77th-ranked player in the 2025 class, the 13th-ranked linebacker, and the 15th-ranked player in Texas, and is set to enter his senior season Skyline. During his 2023 junior campaign, Barnes recorded 65 tackles (57 solo tackles), three sacks, five interceptions, and 12 tackles for loss on the year.
