Texas A&M football wins recruiting battle with Texas for 4-star receiver

Texas A&M football recruiting is starting to pick up over the last couple of weeks, and Jimbo Fisher just won another in-state battle for Troy Omeire.

The 2020 recruiting cycle was nowhere near as hot of a start for Texas A&M football and Jimbo Fisher compared to last year. Where the Spring Game was a major win for the Aggies in 2018 with a wave of top players committing, it was basically the polar opposite in 2019. No players gave a verbal commitment over that weekend.

However, things are starting to swing in the Aggies favor. They had fallen into the 20s in the 2020 class rankings but a few players giving their pledge lately has pushed the 2020 class back into the Top 15.

It started with 3-star tight end Blake Smith, who held offers from the likes of LSU, Alabama, Michigan, Florida State, and Ohio State, among others, and 4-star wide receiver Muhsin Muhammad III, who is the son of former NFL receiver of the same name, joining the 2020 group. These were both major wins for the 2020 class.

The latest was a major win against in-state rival Texas for wide receiver Troy Omeire. The Fort Bend Austin High School product is the No. 92 overall recruit, No. 19 at his position and No. 14 in Texas. Texas and Texas A&M were each in the final four with Alabama and LSU, though it was supposedly only a two-horse race between the Texas schools.

Omeire is a bonafide playmaker and joins an already elite class at wide receiver. Long-time commit Demond Demas is the No. 15 overall recruit and Muhammad is No. 120. Omeire had offers from Texas, Georgia, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Alabama, Auburn, and others.

This was another major head-to-head win for Fisher against Tom Herman, which isn’t new. He’s been picking up huge wins in each of the last two years, his first two full recruiting cycles with the Aggies.
