With in-person recruiting re-opening, the Texas A&M Football team is back in the trenches of recruiting, looking to round up a powerful 2022 class. Right now, their class is ranked 10th in the country, dropping a few spots over the past few weeks.

Jimbo Fisher and his recruiting staff will look to take advantage of in-person recruiting by maximizing visits in the month of June. Already, this is beginning to pay dividends for the team based in College Station.

As things stand, the Aggies only have a single cornerback commit in their 2022 class. There are only eight total commits, two of whom are on the defensive end, including cornerback Bobby Taylor II, who has been a huge player recruiter for the Texas A&M Football team.

A 2022 cornerback decommitted from Houston after being offered by the Texas A&M Football team

Aggie camps have been going on for over a week now, starting with kicking camp and continuing with youth camps and high school camps. Last week, a 3-star cornerback recruit attended the high school camp without an offer from the Texas A&M Football team.

When he left, he would have an offer to play football in College Station.

That player is Dorian Friend, a cornerback out of Spring, Texas, a town that may be familiar to TAMU Football fans, as Jimbo Fisher has recruited the area hard.

Friend is undersized at 5-9, 160 lbs but still has room to grow. In all likelihood, he would end up being a starter later in his career, as opposed to a 5-star athletically gifted player in Jaylon Jones, who saw extended time as a freshman.

Friend must have enjoyed his time at the Texas A&M Football camp, as he decommitted after receiving an offer from the Aggies. The cornerback even has a Texas A&M Football shirt on his 247 photo, which can be seen in his recruiting profile.

Even though he isn’t a high-profile recruit, Friend holds some strong offers from schools like Houston, Oregon, and Memphis. That said, his offer from Jimbo Fisher is his strongest by a mile at this point. Fisher and his staff must have seen something they like, as generally, they’ll shoot for higher-rated recruits.

Next. One of TAMU's commits is their biggest recruiter. dark

Again, Friend likely won’t have much of an instant impact if he commits, but don’t be surprised if you begin to hear his name down the road.
