Coach Mike Elko and Texas A&M Aggies have already had a successful recruiting surge so far this summer but this just might be the icing on the cake. Noah Mikhail, a four-star linebacker from California announced via 247Sports that he will be joining the Aggies in College Station, Texas.

The Aggies continue to add to a star-studded recruiting class that was already ranked No. 9 in the nation per On3 Industry. This comes shortly after Kiotti Armstrong, a four-star tight end, committed to the Aggies. Following the commitment, Texas A&M's 2025 class moved up one spot to No. 8 overall in the nation.

Who Is Noah Mikhail?

Mikhail is a 6-foot-2, 210-pound inside linebacker from La Verne, Calif. Mikhail is ranked as a four-star on all the major recruiting sites and plays for Bonita High School. Mikhail's play style and scheme fit played a huge role in his decision to join the Aggies along with Mike Elko's defensive mastermind abilities, according to Mikhail.

Mikhail's quite the athlete. He also plays a lot of snaps at wideout and running back for Bonita and has produced but his development as a linebacker has earned most of his recruiting attention. Mikhail's athleticism helps him fly from sideline to sideline and exhibit an elite ability to shoot toward the ball through the gaps. Mikhail is known to have a leader mentality and projects to be a possible team captain down the road with serious NFL potential as well.

How Does This Affect Texas A&M?

This might be one of, if not the biggest commitment yet for Elko and the Aggies. Per On3, Mikhail is the second-highest rated defensive commitment they have received thus far. The highest being four-star cornerback Adonyss Currie. However, the Aggies currently hold four total four-star cornerback commitments, meaning the position may not be in dire need of addressing in comparison to linebacker.

The Aggies do hold one other four-star linebacker commitment from Kelvion Riggins, however he ranks roughly 300 spots lower than Mikhail does. This commitment secures stability at the linebacker position going forward.

Mikhail will blend right into this defense and the 2025 class as a whole. He is far and above the best second-level defender the Aggies have reeled in as a commit. He projects to become not only a starter within his first two years, but a team captain by the time he is a junior. A&M continues to log big names all across the defense, but the biggest need until now was inside linebacker.
