The Texas A&M football team’s coaching staff will look to capitalize on 2023’s elite talent pool in the secondary

CB Jordan Matthews (4-star): SEC fans will know the name Jordan Matthews from the two-time All-SEC Vanderbilt wide receiver or, as I like to call it, the only good player to ever play for Vandy. This isn’t that guy.

This Jordan Matthews, however, could make an even larger impact at a much more important football school in Texas A&M. Matthews is a four-star prospect and one of the nation’s best cornerbacks. At 6’0″, he could fill into a role left behind by guys like Brian George and Myles Jones in fast order.

Fisher will look to continue his trend of having strong secondaries in Aggieland with a commitment from this four-star.

CB Tony Mitchell (5-star): Take everything that I just said about Jordan Matthews and amplify it — that’s what you’re getting out of Tony Mitchell. Mitchell is a guy who could play immediately in the SEC, even at a difficult position like cornerback, and be an impact player.

The 6’2″ defender comes from Alabaster, Alabama, and is currently considered a toss-up between Florida State, LSU, and ‘Bama. That said, this prospect’s recruiting has a long way to go and Jimbo Fisher may be the best recruiter in the entire country.

By adding Mitchell, A&M would be locking in guaranteed talent for at least a few more years while they attempt to make a title run.
