Jimbo Fisher earning his pay early on recruiting trail for Aggies

Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher

It’s been a little over six months since Texas A&M made one of the biggest splashes of the college football off-season. It was early December when the Aggies opened up their wallets to bring national championship winning coach Jimbo Fisher to College Station.

Despite not having coached a game for Texas A&M yet, Fisher has already made a big impact on the recruiting trail.

In just two months’ time, from when he was hired in early December of 2017 until National Signing Day in early February of 2018, Fisher was able to put together one of the best recruiting classes in the country by any first-year head coach.

Fisher and his staff at Texas A&M were able to sign 13 prospects considered to be four-star talents by 247sports.com in their 2018 class. Not bad for a coach and a staff hired just 60 days prior to signing day.

In fact, those 13 four-star prospects tied Texas A&M with Florida State for the most four-star prospects signed by any first-year coaching staff in the entire country in 2018.

Fisher and A&M have continued their recruiting momentum right into 2019.

As things stand currently, Texas A&M has the No. 2 overall class in the country for 2019. The Aggies have 13 commitments, seven of which are considered to be among the top-300 overall recruits in the nation.

The Aggies received a gigantic commitment, literally and figuratively, in early June from five-star offensive tackle Kenyon Green, (Humble, TX). Green is among the top-five offensive tackles in the country and is also considered to be the No.1 overall recruit in Texas for the class of 2019.

Along with Green, the Aggies 2019 class is headlined by top 10 safeties Brian Williams, (Dallas) and Demani Richardson (Waxahachie, TX), four-star defensive linemen DeMarvin Leal (Converse, TX) and Braedon Mowry (Katy, TX), four-star wide receiver Kam Brown (Colleyville, TX) and four-star tight end Baylor Cupp (Brock, TX).

As the Aggies class currently stands, 11 of the 13 commitments for the 2019 class are from Texas, meaning Fisher and staff are putting in work to own the state.
