In a short period of time, Texas A&M Football head coach Jimbo Fisher has made a lot of noise within the SEC as a recruiter. On Friday, he added another athlete to a class that was already considered one of the best in the country.
The Aggie recruiting expert picked up a commitment from a 2022 athlete who was previously committed to play for the Georgia Bulldogs. That athlete goes by the name of Deyon “Smoke” Bouie. At the very least, Texas A&M will be getting an athlete with one of the coolest nicknames in all of college football.
The Texas A&M Football team is getting an extremely versatile athlete in Deyon Bouie
Bouie isn’t known for any specific position. On the college football radar, he’s likely known best as a cornerback, though he’s not a bad wide receiver either. The top-50 prospect is one of the more athletic players in the class, even if his height-weight doesn’t jump off of the page.
At 5-11, Bouie is considered the second-best athlete according to 247Sports’ composite rankings, leading the charge for positionless players. He helped his team win a state title as a freshman, putting his name on the map right away.
In all likelihood, Bouie will play cornerback for the Aggies, as Texas A&M already has a handful of wide receiver talent waiting for an opportunity. That said, Fisher has shown that he’s not afraid to play a guy all over the field, so don’t be surprised if we see him taking offensive snaps. Ainias Smith’s versatility is an example of this when looking at current A&M players.
The Bainbridge, Georgia prospect holds offers from a variety of schools including Alabama, Florida, Oregon, Tennesee, Georgia, and others. Bouie is a hot name in college football right now, so Fisher adding him to his class could go a long way.
He’s best known for his speed and quickness in the open field, helping him make big plays defensively and make defenders miss on the offensive end. Bouie became Texas A&M’s third-highest ranked prospect in the 2022 class with his commitment.
There are still a few names that the Aggies are looking to secure for their 2022 class and Bouie may help get the ball rolling.
