On Tuesday, A&M pulled in another high-level recruit.
This time around, Jimbo Fisher secured another top-100 player, this one coming from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the same city that LSU plays in. If you wanted more evidence that Fisher wasn’t leaving for the LSU job, there you go.
The Texas A&M football team’s 2022 class is reaching “untouchable” status, piece by piece
Even after a huge commitment like this, it’s important to remember that this class is far from complete. There are still a handful of five-star recruits that could commit to A&M — a strong finish would really separate this Aggie class.
This commitment from Le’Veon Moss not only gives Texas A&M the coolest name in college football, but it bolsters a class that didn’t have a strong runningback recruit prior to this. If Moss can live up to the name Le’Veon, he’ll be a great runningback. If he can live up to the name Moss, he could become a great receiver.
Jokes aside, Moss is the 5th-best runningback recruit in his class per 247Sports. The Aggies were primarily competing with LSU and Alabama to sign Moss and once again, they won.
Moss is a fast back — he’s not as fast as Devon Achane (who is?), but he has great open-field speed. Like Achane, he’s a track athlete, which has seemed to help players find success in College Station in the past. In his sophomore season, Moss returned three kickoffs for touchdowns.
Similar to Isaiah Spiller, Moss’s strengths come from his vision and fast one-cut ability. That said, his acceleration and general speed looks better than Spiller who, among a handful of strengths, is a relatively slow back.
Moss’s commitment is just another on a pile of already-impressive commits for this Texas A&M football team. The Aggies class continues to improve and with a key runningback set to play in College Station, it’s becoming extremely well-rounded.
Don’t look now, but Jimbo Fisher is shooting to have the number one class in the country.
