Four-star 2019 S Demani Richardson verbally committed to Texas A&M.

Richardson was reportedly down to Texas A&M, Texas, TCU and Alabama, but ultimately has verbally committed to the Aggies. He currently is ranked the sixth best safety in the class by 247 Sports composite rankings, and 140th overall. He also plays running back for Waxahachie high school in Texas, but most analysts believe he profiles best as a safety. It's just another big get for Jimbo Fisher and company for their already loaded 2019 class.

ESPN college football analyst Booger McFarland appeared on the SEC Network’s Paul Finebaum Show Friday evening and said that Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher agreed that the Aggies were a "soft" team in the past.

"I talked to Jimbo in Atlanta. I told Jimbo point-blank — the same thing I told you guys about Texas A&M the last several years — A&M is a soft program," McFarland said. "Jimbo looked me in the eye and was like, ‘You know what, you’re damn right. We are soft, but I’m going to change that.’" Alright then. This is a pretty blatant shot at Kevin Sumlin and his previous staff. It's also not an uncommon criticism of the Texas A&M program; you just don't usually see head coaches acknowledge it. We kind of with Texas A&M played Arizona this year, now.

FanRag Sports writer Peter Bukowski projects the Seahawks to select Texas A&M Christian Kirk with the 18th pick in his seven-round mock draft for Seattle.

This would be interesting. The Seahawks have Doug Baldwin as a legit top-option, but Paul Richardson is a free agent, and so is Jimmy Graham. The Seahawks obviously need pass-catchers, but they also have huge needs on the offensive line, and potentially running back. They also don't have a pick in the second or third round. "The Seahawks don’t seem to mind having a shorter group of receivers and at 5-foot-11, Kirk is hardly "small," particularly at a rocked-up 200 pounds," Bukowski writes. "If the Legion of Boom’s time is coming to a close, perhaps prioritizing offensive skill talent to build a team around Russell Wilson will be the move."

Texas A&M and Appalachian State have agreed to a match-up for the 2022 season.

The Aggies will play host to the Mountaineers on Sept. 10, 2022. This will be the first meeting between the two teams. This is the second nonconference tilt that has been scheduled by Texas A&M for the 2022 season. They previously locked in a home date with Miami for Sept. 17 of that year.

Texas A&M received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 DT Josh Ellison.

This one was a short enough reach for Aggies HC Jimbo Fisher, as Ellison plies his trade at A&M Consolidated High School in College Station. The 6-foot-3, 300-pound defensive tackle was phenomenally productive as a junior in 2017, registering 97 tackles (7.0 for loss), four sacks and a pair of tipped passes. On 247Sports' composite board, Ellison slides into the fray at No. 302 overall in the 2019 class. After Fisher and company turned in a stellar finish to the 2018 cycle, we fully expect the program to swing hard toward a top-five class for 2019.

Texas A&M signed four-star 2018 ATH Vernon Jackson, who had previously been verbally committed to Alabama.

This one got a little weird, as there was apparently no actual evidence that Jackson (6'3/240) had signed on Wednesday, but Texas A&M has officially announced him as part of the class. He had previously been committed to the Crimson Tide in September, but he didn't sign in the early signing period, and he's flipped his commitment to the Aggies. Most analyst projected him for the defensive side of the ball, but he played quarterback in college, and is reportedly a powerful runner who can punish tacklers. He ranked 21st in 247 Sports composite rankings of the top athletes in the class.

Former Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel announced that he will no longer be using Twitter to interact with Aggies recruits.

Manziel cited "always controversial NCAA rules" in his tweet announcing that he would no longer be hitting up recruiting targets on social media. It's possible that Texas A&M could have gotten into a little hot water down the road had Johnny Football kept up the practice. The NCAA prohibits most contact from former players in relation to recruits being targeted by their alma maters.

Texas A&M signed uncommitted four-star 2018 G Tank Jenkins.

We were dubious of what new Aggies HC Jimbo Fisher had been doing on the recruiting trail with Texas A&M in his limited time at the helm of the ship, but to the program's credit, they've come through with a stellar little haul on National Signing Day. Oklahoma was considered a serious contender to land the 6-foot-3, 325-pound Johnson entering February. He's an excellent run-blocking lineman who plays with consistent power and punch. Also versatile as to which position he will play on the line -- that will come down to how he's able to control his weight now that he's set to hit the collegiate ranks.

Texas A&M signed uncommitted four-star 2018 RB Jashaun Corbin.

Not the first occasion in which Aggies HC Jimbo Fisher has had Corbin in his corner. It's just that the last time, Fisher was head coach at Florida State. The 6-foot, 190-pounder initially committed to the Seminoles last May before later reopening his recruitment. He should be an entertaining watch in College Station, with ESPN's Billy Tucker comping the running back to Alvin Kamara. Corbin's a very real receiving option, one who is sharp enough in that aspect that he could see work out of the slot down the road depending on how Texas A&M plans on utilizing him. On the 247Sports composite board, he lands at No. 261 overall in the 2018 class.

Texas A&M signed uncommitted four-star 2018 DE Jeremiah Martin.

Martin was considering Oklahoma, and also received a strong late push from Washington. Ultimately, he signs with the Aggies, and gives Texas A&M a potential impact edge-rusher. He ranks 15th in 247 Sports list of weak-side defensive ends, and they also ranked him 35th overall in the always loaded state of California.

Texas A&M signed uncommitted four-star 2018 QB James Foster.

This is a nice get for the Aggies, as Foster looked to have narrowed his choice down to Florida State or LSU in the leadup to National Signing Day. Surprise, surprise. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound dual-threat gunslinger should not just be viewed as a runner who occasionally throws the ball -- he's a put-together pocket passer who possesses a plus-arm and a quick release.

Texas A&M received a verbal re commitment from four-star 2018 S Leon O'Neal.

O'Neal decommitted from the Aggies in December, but visited the program three times in December, and apparently saw enough from new coach Jimbo Fisher to recommit to the program. The safety ranks ninth at the position in ESPN's rankings, and 125th overall. Reports indicate he's a hard-hitter with quality instincts, with enough athleticism to help in coverage and in run support.
Feb 5 - 4:34 PM

Texas A&M received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 WR Kam Brown, who had previously been committed to UCLA.

Brown said that he was "strongly" committed to UCLA back in November. It's a good reminder that strong commitments don't mean much in November. Brown is ranked as the 20th best wideout by 247 Sports, and 113th overall. Scouting reports suggest he's an excellent route runner with strong hands, and that he can create separation. Texas A&M is going to have one of the best 2019 classes in the country at this point.

Texas A&M received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 CB Bobby Wolfe, who had previously been committed to Ole Miss.

Wolfe has been uncommitted since July, when Hugh Freeze resigned as head coach of the Rebels. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound cornerback also had offers from Arkansas, Florida, and LSU, just to name a few. He ranks just outside of 247 Sports top 250 (he's No. 251), and he's the 24th best cornerback in the class by their rankings. Another big get for Jimbo Fisher.
Feb 5 - 1:16 PM

ESPN's Gerry Foster writes that uncommitted four-star 2018 QB James Foster could end up at Florida State.

Most analysts believe that Foster's favorite is LSU, but Florida State has made a strong push for the signal-caller, and he made an official visit to Tallahassee this weekend. The four-star quarterback also had a commitment to Missouri at one point, but is no longer considering the school. He'll likely decide between the Tigers and Seminoles on signing day.
