DFW Weekly Recruiting Notebook

Another week, another 10 commitments from prospects in the DFW Metroplex. Scout.com recaps the region's week in recruiting for June 16-22.

The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex saw a week of double-digit commitments, starting with another Texas A&M pledge.

Flower Mound Marcus 2015 four-star offensive tackle Keaton Sutherland committed to the Aggies on June 16, picking them over fellow finalists, Arkansas, Baylor, and Ole Miss.

Sutherland (pictured above) is 1 of 10 commitments for Texas A&M since May 1. He's part of an Aggie class that ranks No. 2 in the country in Scout's 2015 team rankings, trailing only fellow SEC West program Alabama.

Later in the day, Rice continued its recent recruiting roll with a bit of a surprise commitment from three-star 2015 defensive tackle Zach Abercrumbia of Dallas Skyline. Abercrumbia has double-digit offers, including several from P5-conference programs.

Keller Fossil Ridge 2015 safety Montrel Wilson committed this past Tuesday to Baylor, choosing the Bears over offers from Arkansas, Illinois, Navy, New Mexico, and UTEP. Also Tuesday, Mesquite Horn 2015 cornerback J.R. Hall announced his commitment to UTEP.

Arlington Bowie 2015 three-star safety Niko Small picked up Tuesday offers from Navy and TCU, which apparently was the offer for which he was waiting. The 5-foot-10, 183-pounder committed Wednesday morning to TCU, which already held a commitment from Small's 2015 teammate, Tony James. Small chose the Horned Frogs over 11 other offers.

Then came a surge of Aggie news this past Wednesday and Thursday.

Cedar Hill teammates DaMarkus Lodge and Richard Moore both announced Thursday commitments to Texas A&M. Lodge is a five-star receiver with more than 20 offers, while Moore is a three-star outside linebacker with an offer list around 20.

Friday brought more five-star Texas A&M news as 2016 offensive tackle Greg Little -- the No. 2 player in Scout's initial 2016 national rankings -- committed to Texas A&M around midday while watching his teammates compete at a 7-on-7 state qualifier tournament at Rowlett. At 6-foot-6, 285 pounds, Little is Scout's No. 1 player in the state's 2016 class and holds more than 20 offers. South Carolina had offered Little a day before his commitment to Texas A&M.

Also Friday, Oklahoma State got a commitment from Duncanville 2015 linebacker Za'Carrius Green. More commitment news followed Saturday when Dallas Bishop Dunne 2015 running back Rawleigh Williams, who had long been committed to Ole Miss, announced via Twitter that he had flipped is commitment from the Rebels to Arkansas, which he was visiting at the time of the decision. Williams picked up a North Texas offer earlier in the week.
