College football recruiting rankings: Texas A&M locks up No. 1 class of all time on National Signing Day 2022

Texas A&M officially captured the No. 1 recruiting class in college football history after five-star defensive lineman Shemar Stewart committed on 2022 National Signing Day. His verbal pledge and forthcoming signing will push the Aggies past 2021 Alabama into sole position of the top spot with an unmatched 328.59 points in 247Sports Composite. 

The class features a nation-leading seven five-star signees, all of whom rank among the top 25 players in the country. Defensive lineman Walter Nolen was the biggest prize of the class, ranking No. 2 in the 247Sports Composite rankings as the top FBS signee in the nation. With Stewart and Nolen joining Gabriel Brownlow-Dindy, Enai White and Anthony Lucas, the Aggies have arguably the greatest defensive line recruiting class in history. 

Offensively, quarterback Conner Weigman is the first five-star signee at that position for Texas A&M since Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray. He joins wide receivers Chris Marshall and Evan Stewart as five-star offensive signees in the recruiting class. The Aggies boast the nation’s No. 1 defensive lineman (Nolen), No. 1 tight end (Jake Johnson), No. 2 receiver (Stewart), No. 2 quarterback (Weigman), No. 3 interior lineman (Kam Dewberry) and No. 4 cornerback (Denver Harris).

“It’s something special when all those top players want to play with each other,” Stewart said on CBS Sports HQ.
