The momentum of the 2018 Texas A&M football recruiting class might have been the most fascinating National Signing Day story. How did the final class grade out?

The furious National Signing Day finish orchestrated by new Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher was nothing short of spectacular. Fisher inherited a partially filled class weeks before the Early Signing Period. He took it from 10 early signees to a full class of 23 players when all was said and done.

Entering the week of National Signing Day the Aggies held the No. 35 class in the nation. In the span of little more than 48 hours the Aggies picked up commitments left and right from some of the nation’s most highly regarded blue-chip prospects. The run started with the recommitment of safety Leon O’Neal two days before National Signing Day. It ended with the signature of 4-star running back Vernon Jackson the day following National Signing Day.

Fisher hired the last member of his staff in late January, making the final surge all the more impressive. For Aggies, this top 20 finish will likely be the lowest they see their classes ranked during Fisher’s tenure in College Station.

Texas A&M picked up several big names on National Signing Day that should make an impact on the field in short order. How did the Aggies’ 2018 recruiting class grade out?
