Jalen Cone, a four-star prospect out of the 2020 recruiting class, has been offered a scholarship by the Texas A&M Aggies. This news was relayed on Twitter by Stockrisers reporter Jake Weingarten, who also mentioned the offer came after an in-home visit with the staff.
The 2020 class is obviously an important one, as it will be Buzz Williams’ first earnest attempt at bringing top-tier talent to the program. Texas A&M hired him from Virginia Tech after the Hokies’ season ended.
Nearly all reputable recruiting service outlets do consider Jalen Cone a four-star prospect. Not only that, though, as most tend to agree he’s one of the 60 (or so) best players in the entire 2020 recruiting class.
It’s also worth mentioning that some programs, like the Tennessee Volunteers, are letting Cone know it is fine if he wants to reclassify to the 2019 class.
Cone is an interesting point guard prospect for several reasons. The biggest of which might be that he’d be rated higher if he were only a few inches taller. While recruiting service outlets seem to disagree on his exact height, nearly every listing does have him below the six-foot benchmark.
