Jimbo Fisher does not have a quarterback committed in the 2018 class. The Aggies lone commitment, Cade Fortin, decommitted soon after Fisher arrived and quickly committed to North Carolina. He signed with the Tar Heels during the early signing period, taking him off the board for the Aggies.

Fisher has focused his efforts on two passers: Justin Fields, who signed with Georgia during the early signing period, and currently uncommitted prospect James Foster. A 6-foot-3, dual threat quarterback from Montgomery, Alabama, Foster is the top name on the Aggies’ quarterback board.

The race for Foster looks to be a four team race. Texas A&M got in late, offering Foster on Dec. 4. The Aggies will have to fend off LSU, Alabama and Florida State if they are to secure his signature.

Texas A&M appears to be set at the quarterback position for at least two more years. Nick Starkel has shown promising signs and backup Kellen Mond had his moments. The Aggies don’t have to take a quarterback this year, but they could find themselves in trouble if Mond were to transfer and/or Starkel got hurt next season. Landing Foster will be a priority for Texas A&M down the stretch.
