Texas A&M has recruited a lot of local players the last few classes and that trend continued Monday night with the addition of 6-foot-9 center Isiah Jasey. The native of Killeen, Texas is considered a three-star prospect from Rivals.com in the Class of 2017.

A 240-pound big man who can rebound and protect the rim, Jasey is solid finishing inside, but he doesn’t have much range and isn’t good from the free-throw line. Jasey will take some time to develop, but he has the size and athleticism to eventually make a difference for the Aggies.

Jasey joins three-star guard T.J. Starks, also a native of Texas, in the Aggies’ Class of 2017 recruiting efforts. Recruiting in the state of Texas has been especially interesting with the addition of Jamie Dixon at TCU and Chris Beard at Texas Tech. The Aggies also lost assistant coach Kyle Keller to Stephen F. Austin as well.

Recruiting of in-state kids will be an interesting race with Baylor, SMU, Texas and Texas A&M all doing so well recently and those other schools likely seeing an uptick in recruiting since they have new coaches.
