Aggie Hoops’ 2024 recruiting class is now ranked 11th in the country
Ever since Texas A&M head basketball coach Buzz Williams returned to Aggieland for the first time in nearly a decade as a coach, his vision of turning around a program that had seen better days under every previous regime, but slowly dropped off the map in the final two seasons under previous head coach Billy Kennedy, would take some time, but get to its destination soon enough.
In four seasons with the program, Williams has accumulated a 76-47 record, and 36-28 in SEC play, while guiding the 2022-2023 squad to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since the 2017-2018 season last. One area of weakness that has kept the Aggies from truly reaching their full potential under Williams’ tutelage is recruiting, as multiple players from the 2020, 2021, and 2022 cycles have transferred from the program, while only signing one five-star recruit in guard Manny Obaseki.
However, All-SEC point guard Wade Taylor IV from the 2021 recruiting class has already cemented himself as one of the program’s greatest players. His excellent play on the court has led to one of the Texas A&M and Buzz Williams’s best classes to date, as the 2024 class is currently ranked 11th in the country by 247Sports Composite rankings.
After four-star power forward George Turkson out of Lowell, Massachusetts announced his commitment on Wednesday, he quickly joined fellow four-star forward Rob Dockery, and high-three-star guard Andre Mills (also from Massachusetts), who will likely receive a four-star designation by this time next year. All in all, this is by far the most talented class since the 2021 cycle, as all three prospects will have a chance to contribute as soon as the 2024 season, all possessing the skill sets and mental fortitude needed to excel with the Maroon and White.
