Jimbo Fisher is hot on the recruiting trail, putting out offers to several of the top 2020 recruits he hopes will join Texas A&M football.

When Texas A&M hired Jimbo Fisher, many thought he would be able to continue the successful recruiting the Aggies enjoyed under Kevin Sumlin. That is clearly the case and it’s paying dividends already.

Fisher salvaged the 2018 class to a top 20 ranking despite losing some due to the coaching change. He currently has a top five ranked class for the 2019 season, which is the first class he has a full year and change to recruit. He is also working hard on the 2020 class, which you could see some of that over the weekend as the Ags put out offers to multiple big time players.

One of them was to one of the class’ top recruits, Kendall Milton.

Milton is a running back from California that has at least 37 offers from major programs. Alabama is said to be the favorite for Milton right now. A&M joins Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Tennessee, and Mississippi State as the SEC schools to make Milton an offer. He is supposedly the highest on Bama, USC, Oregon, Washington, Cal and Utah.

A&M also offered Washington, D.C. cornerback Luke Hill, who has offers from Clemson, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kentucky, Virginia and Virginia Tech, among others.

The Aggies also made an offer to one of the better safeties in the class, Nehki Meredith from Virginia Beach. He has received offers from Virginia Tech, Auburn, Tennessee, Penn State, Maryland, and Florida State. Tech is considered the favorite right now.

Finally, A&M made an offer to wide receiver Brenden Rice, whose brother, Qualen Cunningham, just graduated from Texas A&M after four years on the Fightin’ Texas Aggie football team.

Rice is the biological son of Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice. His stepfather, Rick Cunningham, also played at Texas A&M and in the NFL for a time. It’s safe to say plenty of eyes will be on Brenden as he makes his commitment.
