Cy Ridge wide receiver Kemah Siverand became the latest high school standout to commit to the Aggies.
Siverand's decision came one day after the Aggies got the verbal commitment of one of the top 2015 quarterbacks in the state, Kyler Murray from Allen High School.
Asked if Murray's commitment played into his own, Siverand messaged CSN Houston that it definitely gave him more confidence in his decision. Less than a day before Murray verballed, Siverand had released his top schools, in order. In that list, Texas A&M was the leader, followed by Ohio State.
With College Station much closer to home than Columbus, Ohio, the main reason for his decision, according to Siverand, was that it was a lot more accessible for his family. It will be easier for them to be there for his games.
Siverand is coming off a junior season where he caught 25 balls for 611 yards, an average of over 24 yards a catch. He had seven touchdowns receiving. On top of that, Siverand carried the ball 13 times for 163 yards.
Siverand was one of the most hotly-recruited athletes in the area, attracting offers from not only the Aggies and Buckeyes, but also such schools as Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Texas, TCU, Missouri, LSU, and many more.
