The Texas A&M football team entered an early offseason this year after dropping out of the Gator Bowl fewer than two weeks ago. Thankfully for Aggie fans, this won’t be a normal, boring offseason though. In fact, Jimbo Fisher’s elite recruiting should pay off and make this one of the best offseasons in Aggie history.
Speaking of bests in Aggie history — A&M’s 2022 recruiting class could be cut off as is and it would be the best of all time. Heck, Fisher’s class is on its way to becoming the greatest recruiting class of any college football team of all time.
But in order to achieve that status, A&M still needs a couple of dominos to fall. When I say dominos, I mean a duo of elite commitments that could happen in the near future.
These three Texas A&M football targets could propel the Aggies’ 2022 class to God-tier
As things stand, the Texas A&M football team has the top class in the nation according to virtually every recruiting service. 247Sports rates their class at 325.14, a number that is virtually impossible to catch by any other school. Make no mistake, this team will have the top 2022 class no matter what happens.
The question that remains is simple — could this class improve even more? The answer isn’t so rhetorical, it’s a simple yes. As things stand, there are still a couple of outstanding recruits who are looking for a college football home.
5-star LB Harold Perkins
I’ve spoken about Harold Perkins before, but I cannot emphasize enough how important he would be to this class. The five-star linebacker out of Cypress, Texas is an incredible athlete and could fill a linebacker spot that will be left open by Aaron Hansford.
As things stand, the linebacker position is a *very* relative weak spot for the Aggies. Their top commitment in the second line of defense is four-star Martrell Harris who, to be fair, who be the top recruit for most college football teams.
Perkins joining A&M would give the Aggies their sixth five-star commitment. He plans to announce his commitment on January 2nd.
5-star DL Shemar Stewart
I’m going to sit here and tell you about the ninth-ranked recruit in the country who may end up coming to Texas A&M as the fourth-highest-rated commitment on the team. That’s how elite the 2022 class is right now.
Stewart is a jaw-dropping 6’6″, 272-pound defensive lineman who can play virtually all over. Think DeMarvin Leal with more height and mass. It’s a scary thought.
The Aggies already have a handful of elite defensive line commits — if Jimbo Fisher pulls Stewart, this unit would have the potential to be the greatest college football has ever seen. No doubt about it, there wouldn’t be an offensive line in the country that could stop them.
Stewart will also announce his commitment on January 2nd.
