The Texas A&M Football team is lucky to have one of the best committed quarterback prospects in their 2022 class. This weekend, Conner Weigman competed in the Elite 11, having an impressive showing during the most important football camp of his life thus far.

For context, Weigman came into the competition ranked as the 4th-best quarterback in his class. He’s ranked 30th nationally and unanimously considered to be one of the best players overall in his class. Weigman is a guy that most experts would expect to see in NFL Draft talks down the road.

Aggie fans will be pleased to hear that Weigman had an extremely efficient showing. While he wasn’t the most electric player on the field, he was easily the most consistent aside from a slow start.

Weigman’s rough start began at the very beginning of camp, struggling in Wednesday’s workout. He would, however, bounce back and be a consistently strong player for the remainder of the competition.

The Aggie commit was extremely competitive in the pro-day challenge, losing to a quarterback committed to the Clemson Tigers.

Here’s what 247Sports said about his overall performance.

"“Efficiency, efficiency, efficiency.  That describes Weigman’s week and in particular, his Saturday, where he helped Anthracite to the finals.  In one 7on7 game, he attempted 31 passes. The Texas A&M pledge was steady all week.”"

While Weigman was near the top of every competition, he didn’t come in first in any singular contest. That said, he had a strong overall showing, which earned him the 4th spot in the final Elite 11 rankings. This is fitting, as he is the 4th-highest ranked quarterback in his class.

Hopefully, Texas A&M Football QB commit Connor Weigman’s Elite 11 will translate to college football

Weigman will be headed to Aggieland starting in 2022. Right now, Jimbo Fisher will be looking for his new quarterback in a competition between Haynes King and Zach Calzada. In all likelihood, King will be the starter next season.

Weigman is athletic and an elite baseball prospect. He has a strong arm, as most baseball players do. He’s a strong scrambler, able to make plays out of nothing. Like Haynes King, he has strong top-end speed for a quarterback, something reminiscent of the Aggies’ former Heisman winner in Johnny Manziel.

However, the Aggies aren’t necessarily locked into either of those guys. If neither of them are able to become a great quarterback, Weigman could get a shot at instant playing time at Texas A&M.
