Texas A&M now has nation's No. 1 recruiting class
It was likely an easy decision for Jimbo Fisher to stay at Texas A&M over jumping to LSU, and his ranches were only part of the reason.
After an action-filled first day of the Early Signing Period, Texas A&M now has the nation’s No. 1 recruiting class, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. Entering Wednesday, the Aggies had the nation’s No. 3 recruiting class, but that certainly changed with a monster day.
Fisher and TAMU added 4 top 100 commitments Wednesday, giving the Aggies a major close. Kam Dewberry, Jake Johnson, Enai White, Anthony Lucas and Marquis Groves-Killebrew all committed Wednesday, and that was enough to put the Aggies on top.
Texas A&M finished just ahead of Alabama and Georgia.
The class is highlighted by 3 5-star signees in defensive lineman Walter Nolen, defensive lineman Gabriel Brownlow-Dindy and quarterback Conner Weigman. Five-star wide receiver Evan Stewart is still committed to Texas A&M, but he hasn’t signed as of Wednesday night.
It could get better, too, as Fisher said Texas A&M is still waiting on 5 or 6 guys who have yet to sign.
“We’ve done a great job in my opinion,” Jimbo Fisher said earlier this afternoon at his Early Signing Period press conference. “Got most of the guys that we need. Don’t get everybody you ever want but got quite a few guys left. Still got five or six guys left that will announce that we can’t talk about. But the class is coming together, hitting a lot of needs, a lot of areas, offense, defense, skill guys, big guys, everything across the board. And just very happy and pleased. And hopefully we’ll develop these guys the right way that we can climb to top of college football the way we want to get to. So very excited about this class. And be anxious for the next couple hours, too.”
Below is the breakdown for Texas A&M’s incredible class:
- 4 5-stars
- 19 4-stars
- 3 3-stars
