Pride on why he chose Texas A&M

“My relationship with Coach Jimbo goes back since 12 years old,” Pride said. “ I used to play baseball with his son Ethan so that’s how long I’ve had a connection with him. And just keep visiting the last 2 times just brought back the great memories.”

“I would say the Head Coach Jimbo and Coach BGA,” Pride said. “They are looking to start me at corner first and develop me there.”

The Sunshine State defensive back joins coach Jimbo Fisher and the Aggies’ top 20 class in the 2024 team rankings. He is accompanied by Dealyn Evans, Debron Gatling, and others.

Pride ranks as the No. 101 player in the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He also tabs in as the No. 8 safety and the No. 17 player in the state of Florida.

He currently has an On3 NIL Valuation of $111K. The On3 NIL Valuation is the industry’s leading index that sets high school and college athletes’ projected annual value (PAV). The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.
