Yes, you read that title correctly — the Texas A&M Football team is getting in early on a 2024 QB prospect. That means that the Aggies’ next big quarterback prospect will be graduating high school in the year 2024. With just a single year of high school football, he’s already on Jimbo Fisher’s radar.
Fisher is well-known for offering quarterbacks early, already securing a commitment from a quarterback for his 2023 class. That commitment came last week from Eli Holstein, a 4-star passer from Zachary, Louisiana.
Holstein gives Fisher a strong quarterback commit for every class in his tenure thus far. 2024 likely won’t be an exception.
The Texas A&M Football team is one of few programs with an offer to 2024 QB Myles Jackson
As goes for any quarterback beyond the 2023 class, Myles Jackson out of Long Beach, California doesn’t have too many offers. Right now, there are only a handful of schools who have gotten in on this quarterback thus far.
Those schools are as follows:
- Oregon State
- San Jose State
- Texas A&M
Some of the schools are relatively high-profile programs, but none of them are as big as Texas A&M. Even though Jackson won’t commit for a long time, the Aggie offer had to have felt special for him.
Getting an offer in early could go a long way for a Texas A&M Football team that has done a strong job bringing arm talent to Aggieland historically. 2024 will be no exception, as HC Jimbo Fisher already offered a quarterback prospect from that class as early as mid-June.
Jackson is a pro-style quarterback who stays true to his style. He rarely leaves the pocket, but when he does, he’s extremely efficient as a scrambler. You can tell that he doesn’t naturally scramble, but he’s capable of making off-balance passes.
The main thing that sticks out for Jackson as a quarterback is his ability to fit the ball into a tight window. As a young player, he doesn’t have a particularly strong arm, but that will develop with time.
So far, Jackson looks like a slightly different style quarterback than those we’ve seen recruited by Fisher. The only comparable player would be Zach Calzada, though even a comparison between those two would be a bit of a stretch.
Perhaps Fisher is buying insurance with Jackson, as the Aggies are chock full of dual-threat quarterbacks thus far. He found success with Kellen Mond, who rarely left the pocket, so why wouldn’t he try again?
