Jimbo Fisher is bringing a new offense to Texas A&M Football. The receiver position is wide open with no upperclassman on the roster. Who will step up?

Texas A&M Football is starting a new era with Jimbo Fisher coming over from Florida State where he won a national championship in 2013. His offense will be very different from the offense we’ve seen since R.C. Slocum was let go in 2002.

Over the last 16 years, we’ve seen a spread option attack from Dennis Franchione, a pro-style offense with multiple sets from Mike Sherman and a form of the air raid from Kevin Sumlin. Fisher will bring back the tight end and fullback. Franchione and Sherman used both at times, but Sumlin was a more conventional spread attack with three, four and sometimes five receivers in the game at a time.

Fisher had to recruit both positions to prepare for his new offense, but the good thing for him is the receiver unit is stacked. The problems that he and receivers coach Dameyune Craig have are not a secret. The unit is talented, but very young and to some extent inexperienced even though many of them played in 2017.

Let’s breakdown how I believe the depth chart will look moving into fall camp. Based on what Fisher ran at Florida State, I will use a three receiver set.
