Texas A&M Football makes 4-star 2022 cornerback’s exclusive top-7
Jimbo Fisher has taken no time off on the recruiting trail for the Texas A&M Football team. He has been working relentlessly to bring in the best talent possible, and it continues with the 2022 class.
One of the positions that the Aggies are relatively secure at is cornerback. That said, there’s always room for improvement, which is exactly what Fisher will look to do in every season as head coach. To do that, he has to continue to load his roster with top talent.
In doing so, he is seeking to get a commitment from a highly-regarded prospect in the 2022 class.
The Texas A&M Football team just made St. Francis CB Cam Johnson’s top-7
The most recent player to show extended interest in the Texas A&M Football team is Cam Johnson, a 4-star cornerback out of Baltimore, Maryland.
The three schools that seem to be in the lead for Johnson are Maryland, Virginia Tech, and, most notably, Boston College, which holds a distinct lead in this race. That said, the Aggies’ have the best defense among any of these teams, which has to be a huge selling point for the Aggies.
Currently, the Texas A&M Football team has the 8th ranked recruiting class in the country, third in the SEC. Even though rankings don’t matter too much, they’ll look to climb upward to have as much talent as anybody.
Jimbo Fisher’s 2022 class currently has one cornerback commit at the moment in Bobby Taylor out of Katy Texas. Adding Johnson could turn this class into a promising one for the secondary.
Cam Johnson would likely be more of a long-term project, who would earn playing time after hitting the weight room for a few years. Here’s 247Sports’ breakdown of the 2022 cornerback prospect:
“Good frame with length but needs to add strength and mass. Athletic with loose hips. Most comfortable as field corner in press coverage. Is able to turn hips and run with receiver across the field. Has speed to cover down the field. Physical tackler. Can cover slot or wide. Needs to develop in weight room. Has tendency to rock while backpedaling, which slows ability to drive on balls thrown in front. Must work on being physical down the field. Multi-year starter at Top 20 program. Day 3 NFL draft potential.”
Clearly, Johnson is a priority prospect for the Aggies. If they can secure his commitment, they may be able to replicate success in the secondary that we saw in 2020 and will likely see in 2021.
