Texas A&M Football has quickly become one of the best programs in the country at recruiting top talent to play for them. Since Jimbo Fisher has arrived in College Station, each recruiting cycle has been in the top ten. Hopefully, this will help the Aggies as they attempt to reach contender status.

On Saturday, the Aggies became one of the top schools for one of the top receivers in the 2022 recruiting class. Here is that player’s tweet announcing his top 8.


Evan Stewart is a 5-star wide receiver in the 2022 class. He was committed to the Texas Longhorns at one point but decommitted in march. Texas would remain in Stewart’s top 8.

Stewart is an elite playmaker, accumulating over 1600 yards in his past two seasons, adding 16 touchdowns in the process. He could be an elite deep threat for the Aggies, as he is averaging over 18 yards per reception.

TAMU has a lot of competition, as the young receiver holds 36 offers including Texas, Florida, Alabama, and LSU. The Aggies will look to make a push to bolster a receiving room that was disappointing in 2020.

The Texas A&M Football team is coming off of a bad year from wideouts

Texas A&M had strong quarterback play in 2020 and relatively poor wide receiving play, two things that normally don’t go hand in hand. There wasn’t anything outwardly wrong with any of the top receivers on this team, the Aggies just didn’t have a big-play guy.

It looked like Caleb Chapman would show up as that player. At the end of his breakout game, he would go down with an injury that is still affecting him as spring ball begins. he will be back in 2021, so hopefully, this will give the receiving core a boost.

That said, this team could use some energy in the receiving core.
