After the 2022 season, where Texas A&M football’s quarterback room was spread extremely thin, Jimbo Fisher is determined to never have a similar problem again. To that end, the Aggie head man got a second QB commitment for the 2024 class yesterday.
With the commitment of Miles O’Neill on June 14th, Texas A&M football picked up their 4th quarterback since December 19th with the commitment of Marcel Reed. Since then, Fisher has acquired the commitment of Anthony Maddox, who is a part of the 2024 class alongside O’Neill, and transfer Jaylen Henderson from Fresno State. With Connor Weigman and Max Johnson most likely leaving in the next few years, Fisher is loading his quarterback room to be prepared for the exit.
O’Neill is a big-bodied quarterback, measuring in at 6 ‘5”, 220 pounds, and has a huge arm. He excels at the deep ball and has tremendous accuracy, accounting for about 2,500 yards, 28 total touchdowns, and completing an impressive 73 percent of his passes. He seems to prefer to stay in the pocket, but with his size and speed, he has the ability to scramble when needed. He is great at keeping his shoulders upright and stands out on the field due to his size. O’Neill attended Marblehead high school in Massachusetts for his junior season, but transferred to Princeton Hun school for the 2023 season.
O’Neill received his offer from Texas A&M football on May 17th, and since then has taken 2 unofficial visits, including on June 9th, only 5 days before he committed. He still has 2 visits planned for Michigan State on June 16th, and Boston College on June 23rd, who have offered him, but these visits could be canceled after the commitment.
Miles has been turning heads at camps and is a great pick up for the 2024 class to add an arm talent who has fantastic potential. He is currently rated as a 3 star recruit, the 14th best player in New Jersey, and 41st quarterback overall, but with a new season ahead on him, there could be a large jump in his ratings.
