After a slow start to June in terms of recruiting, the Texas A&M Football team has quickly become unstoppable. After a trio of commits this past week, it became clear that Jimbo Fisher’s process has been paying off for the 2022 and 2023 classes.
On Saturday, Texas A&M received another commitment from another extremely versatile player.
That player goes by the name of Ish Harris, listed as a 6-3, 195-pound runningback in the 2022 class. Harris, however, is not limited to the runningback position. Despite being listed as a tailback, Harris is an elite linebacker prospect as well. Realistically, he should be listed as an athlete.
2022 Texas A&M Football commit Ish Harris will be playing linebacker in Aggieland
Ish Harris’s recruitment was announced on Twitter. Here is his recruitment video from Saturday afternoon.
Despite being able to play runningback, Harris will be playing linebacker at Texas A&M. That’s not a theory, rather a quote from Harris himself. Here is the full excerpt in relation to his commitment.
"“God has put me in a position to finally do what I want to do, and now, I’m a Texas A&M linebacker.”"
This will be another huge boost to a Texas A&M linebacking core that looks more dangerous by the day. Harris will join Martrell Harris as Jimbo Fisher’s second linebacker commit of a quickly growing 2022 class.
Harris will bring speed and quickness to the Aggies’ defense, something that is clearly a priority based on the players that have committed thus far. The Pilot Point runningback/linebacker can play all over the field and is a multi-sport athlete, running track and playing basketball at the same time.
It’s unclear if he’ll play any other sport at TAMU.
Harris’s offer sheet is extremely impressive, with offers from Oklahoma, Miami, Texas, Michigan, and a handful of other schools. Beating out that list of teams is starting to become a trend in Aggieland, as Texas A&M is absolutely destroying the recruiting trail lately.
Let’s hope Jimbo Fisher isn’t done here, as his hot week has been extremely exciting after a relatively long dead period in recruiting.
The return of in-person recruiting should continue to pay dividends throughout the summer.
