If you liked what Jimbo Fisher was able to do on short notice with his 2018 recruiting class, just wait until next year.
That’s when the new Texas A&M coach is really planning on getting things done on the recruiting trail, to the tune of the nation’s top signing class.
During a National Signing Day interview with CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd, Fisher revealed that he’s confident the Aggies are going to pass the likes of Alabama and Georgia on their way to the top of the national recruiting scene.
“We’ll end up being one or two,” Fisher said, according to Dodd. “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.”
Fisher’s 21-player signing class ranked as the No. 17 group in the country for the Class of 2018, according to the 247 Sports composite.
So what does he have coming down the line in 2019 that has him so confident in that assessment?
Fisher already has six prospects committed for the 2019 class, which is ranked No. 4 in the nation in the very early rankings from 247Sports. Among those commitments is 5-star safety Brian Williams, who committed to the Aggies last month and is rated as the No. 1 safety in the country.
Williams is joined by the nation’s No. 2 pro-style quarterback in 4-star prospect Grant Gunnell. He is joined by 4-star wide receiver Kam Brown and 4-star cornerback Bobby Wolfe, forming an elite nucleus to Fisher’s second class in College Station. All six of the commitments for Fisher’s 2019 class are from Texas, which is an indication that he’s planning to dominate in one of the most fertile grounds for high school talent in the country.
There’s more out there for Fisher to reel in as well, with 5-star tackle Kenyon Green and 4-star wideouts Theo Wease and Arjei Henderson also considered strong candidates to join the Aggies.
