Texas A&M Football is taking advantage of the early signing period. Max Wright is an Aggie and should play early for Jimbo Fisher at a position of need.
Texas A&M Football and the rest of college football are now able to sign high school recruits in December instead of having to wait until the first week of February. One of those signing early is Max Wright.
Wright has been committed to the Aggies since June and some wondered with the coaching change would that change his mind. That did not and to me that’s refreshing.
Who is Max Wright?
A future graduate of Katy Taylor High School in Katy, Texas. Wright had several offers from schools all across the country. Several schools including Alabama tried to sway Wright to change his mind and luckily for the Aggies, he stayed true to his commitment.
According to Rivals, Wright is the 135th ranked player in the country and the 12th best player in the state of Texas. According to 247 sports, he comes in ranked 183rd in the nation and 20th in the state. The crew at TexAgs has Wright as the sixth best player in the state. Regardless of the publication and the ranking, the Aggies are gaining the commitment of a great player, leader and person.
Wright comes in at 6-foot-4 and depending on which site you look at, he weighs somewhere between 230 and 270 pounds. Once the strength and nutrition staff get a hold of him watch out. The Aggies needed impact players and depth at the defensive end spot with Jarrett Johnson and Qualen Cunningham done with eligibility and Justin Dunning retiring from football.
I truly expect Wright to be fully recovered from his second ACL injury and be ready to go in 2018. Do not be surprised if he’s starting by mid-season. The Aggies pass rush disappeared late in the season so a guy like Wright should be fired up about this opportunity.
