The Texas A&M Football team has been completely revamped since Jimbo Fisher stepped onto campus to begin the 2018 season. He has brought in some of the program’s best all-time recruiting classes, flexing his ability to maintain an extremely talented team in College Station.
In his first full year as head coach, he was able to bring in the 4th-ranked recruiting class in the country. A large bulk of the roster will be made up of these players. Beyond that, he has maintained top ten classes in each season, with the 2022 class shaping up to be his best yet thus far.
But with strong recruiting comes heavy competition at each and every position. Some players who were promised a certain amount of snaps under Kevin Sumlin are now reaching a point where they’re unable to play as much as desired.
Texas A&M Football has lost a few players to the transfer portal
As a result of this, some of the older players on this team have opted to transfer out of College Station and find opportunities elsewhere. Thankfully for the Aggies, there haven’t been any big-impact players leaving, but losses are losses, and TAMU will have to find a way to patch up these holes.
Most recently, Jimbo Fisher lost one of his own recruits in Shadrach Banks, a former highly-touted wide receiver who was expected to make an early impact. Banks announced that he’d be entering the transfer portal earlier this week.
His transfer has now been followed by two more Aggies who will be leaving the program.
