The Texas A&M Football team finished recruiting on a high note in the month of June, securing a series of recruits that will help this class develop down the road. That said, the Aggies’ recruiting streak came to a screeching halt at the end of the month.
TAMU fell short of landing 5-star, top-15 prospect Kelvin Banks. Banks committed to Oregon, while the Aggies were thought of as one of the first teams behind the Ducks in the race for the elite offensive tackle.
This won’t be a huge loss, as Texas A&M already has two offensive tackle prospects in their 2022 class, both highly regarded. This, however, does bring into question who the Aggies’ next commitment will be.
Jimbo Fisher may have just gotten a step closer to that player, with a highly-rated safety prospect narrowing down his list and including the Aggies.

This is a familiar recruiting battle and one that the Aggies have been winning ever since Jimbo FIsher’s arrival in College Station. He’ll look to add this impressive recruit to his class, but a safety already committed could complicate things.
One of the aforementioned commitments at the end of June came in the form of a safety by the name of Jarred Kerr. That said, Kerr plays on both sides of the ball and will likely be a more long-term project at TAMU, while Anderson would be a guy who could see the field immediately. At least analysts think so.
Things get confusing here, as Anderson is actually a quarterback prospect at the high school level. He’s extremely athletic and has the physical tools to be a safety, but has no experience at the position.
Still, Anderson has offers from every college football team a player could dream of, including LSU, Michigan, Texas, Alabama, and Texas A&M. The soon-to-be-safety must be capable of something that we haven’t yet seen yet on his tapes, as he is a wanted man.
Hopefully, the Aggies can pick up this prospect, who could be dangerous on both sides of the ball. If the Texas A&M coaches weren’t satisfied with the versatility of Ainias Smith, they may be getting a player who can do even more.
