Jimbo Fisher and the Texas A&M Aggies added a big piece to their 2019 recruiting puzzle last week when four-star wide receiver Dylan Wright announced his intentions to head to College Station.
“I would say Coach Jimbo (Fisher) and Coach (Dameyune) Craig spending time with me and my family,” Wright told GN regarding the big factors that lead to his commitment. “We sit down and talk about stuff other than football, like what I can do at their school and stuff like that.
“Me and Coach Craig have been talking for a while and we have just been clicking on a whole bunch of different things.
“I was supposed to commit at the Under Armour game, but I was like, what is the point of waiting because I already know where I want to go and there is no reason to keep leading these other schools on.”
Wright had nothing, but positive things to say about Jimbo Fisher.
“Some people feel like Jimbo is a strict dude, or just all about football and stuff like that, but he’s actually cool,” Wright said. “He will sit down and talk with you about stuff. He will talk to you about anything. He’s not one of those coaches that get all big-headed or whatever. He’s really down to earth.
“I knew he was down to earth when I saw his beard. It sounds weird, but most coaches shave, but he just has this look where it’s like, he’s at home and he’s just chilling. It isn’t like all business, he’s just comfortable there and that’s one thing I like about him.”
Wright, (6-foot-4, 213 pounds) from Mesquite (TX) West Mesquite, is among the top-25 wide receivers in the country and is also a top-125 overall talent nationally in the 2019 class.
Wright was asked if he ever thinks about how highly thought of he is on all the national recruiting boards.
“No, because to be honest I still feel like I haven’t done anything yet,” he said. “Last year I only had like 500 yards, so I feel like I haven’t done anything yet.
“I do feel like I should have the stuff I have right now because I’ve worked for it, but I just feel like I need to show people what I can actually do. I think I’m going to do that this year.”
With Wright, the Aggies are getting a strong receiver that describes himself in one word.
