Creed Humphrey, a 4-star center from Shawnee High in Oklahoma, committed to Texas A&M on Wednesday.
He released the following statement on Twitter:
Humphrey, who stands 6’4″ and weighs 301 pounds, is considered the No. 3 center, the No. 4 prospect from the state of Oklahoma and the No. 300 player in the class of 2017, according to 247Sports.
Greg Powers of Scout.com broke down Humphrey’s game:
While rated as a center Humphrey is big enough and powerful enough to be considered as an option to play either guard position in college as well. He is quick off the ball and very powerful at the point of attack. Once he gets his hands on you it is pretty much over as he plays with balance and leverage giving him even more of an advantage because he is usually so much stronger than the man across from him. On tape, Humphrey is very effective as a run blocker and he generates a lot of strength from his lower body, which allows him to finish blocks with authority.
That combination of versatility and power should make him a valuable addition to the Aggies offensive line down the road.
And his commitment continues what has been an excellent recruiting class for the program, which ranks No. 7 in 247Sports’ composite rankings. Humphrey will join fellow 4-star recruit Grayson Reed (offensive tackle) and 3-star additions Carson Green (tackle) and Adrian Wolford (tackle) in a strong offensive line class.
The Aggies are expected to have two seniors on the offensive line for the 2016 season—Avery Gennesy and Jermaine Eluemunor—which means there will be openings immediately for Texas A&M next season.
While more experienced players will be expected to fill those voids, the Aggies’ young crop of offensive linemen could make a quick impact if they impress heading into the 2017 season.
