Reason No. 2: Harold Perkins will be joining one of the most talented rosters in college football
Part of the success of the Texas A&M football team feels like it has been built on the idea that the Aggies’ class is already elite. It’s easy for the best players in the country to want to join teams that have proven talent on their roster.
While A&M hasn’t necessarily had ideal results on the field, the talent is there. In fact, the argument could be made that A&M could have been an SEC title contender if not for a handful of injuries that derailed their 2021 season.
In 2022, Jimbo Fisher has reloaded. Heck, even the word “reloaded” doesn’t describe how much the Aggie head coach has bolstered his roster.
Jimbo Fisher’s 2022 recruiting class currently stands atop 247Sports’ rankings. That’s not even the best part, either. The best part is that this class is, pending a commitment from Harold Perkins, ranked as the greatest in recorded history, surpassing Alabama’s 327.76 ranking from last season.
Outside of that class, however, is nothing but talent in College Station. Every single Fisher-recruited class has been ranked in the top ten and the 2023 class looks like it could flirt with the top spot again.
Perkins should want to join a winning ensemble.
