The SEC’s biggest winner during Wednesday’s National Signing Day was Texas A&M. The Aggies signed a dozen prospects during the frenzied day, several of which the program had to beat out fellow SEC programs to land.
Here’s a complete list of the players A&M signed Wednesday:
When the dust had settled, the Aggies finished with the No. 17 recruiting class in the nation for 2018, which ranks No. 6 in the SEC. Not bad considering the Aggies entered the day ranked 10th in the league in recruiting. Even better when you consider Fisher had to assemble an entire coaching staff while at the same time recruit for the Aggies.
While the good news Wednesday was certainly cause for celebration in College Station, Jimbo Fisher says Texas A&M fans should expect much more in 2019. The Aggies have already landed six 2019 commitments — which include one five-star and three four-star prospects — and the say Fisher tells it, several more elite commits are on the way.
Here’s what Fisher said Wednesday about Texas A&M’s 2019 recruiting efforts, per Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports:
“We’ll end up being one or two,” Fisher said. “I’m talking about 10 guys that are right [there]. I’m talking about first-, second-round draft pick guys. There’s some phenomenal players.”
Considering what Fisher and his staff were able to accomplish in such a short period of time, next year’s recruiting class with a full year to build could pan out to be a special one in College Station. Fisher certainly seems to think so.
