Texas A&M is one of the major programs on a roll early in the recruiting process and kept up the momentum from a big weekend with a commitment from Dallas (Texas) offensive tackle J.J. Gustafson on Monday.

"I've been going to A&M games since I was one or two years old," Gustafson told Rivals. "I've always loved the atmosphere at Kyle Field. I've been to camps there too. I liked the coaching staff. I enjoy College Station too."

The 6-foot-6, 275-pound tackle held offers from schools such as Arkansas, Oklahoma, Stanford and Texas Tech. Gustafson was considered an A&M lean for most of the recruiting process with several family members having attended the school but waited to see what new coach Kevin Sumlin brought to the table before committing.

"I really like the A&M staff," Gustafson said. "I am getting a feel of the team and staff and where the depth chart is. I am discovering the A&M philosophy going forward and how they see their season is shaping up."

The pledge gives Texas A&M seven commitments in the past three days and give the program 12 total for the class of 2013. Gustafson is the second offensive lineman of the bunch.
