2025 Five-Stars Who Texas A&M Football Could Land: WR Jamie Ffrench
The first on this list not from the state of Texas, Ffrench's name may still yet sound familiar. The talented pass-catcher from Jacksonville, Florida was an early commitment to Alabama under Nick Saban; however, following the legendary coach's retirement, he walked back his verbal pledge.
Not only does the retirement of Saban help the Aggies' case here, but the fact that—you guessed it—Holmon Wiggins is now on staff with the A&M portends good things in this recruitment. The in-state schools may be tough to hold off in this one (Florida State is already making a hard charge, if you believe the Twitter scuttlebutt), but poaching Wiggins, as well as two big time recruiters from the Gators staff, can help the case for Texas A&M football.
As with all receivers in the class, but especially those from out of state, a narrative-changing showing from the Aggie offense will be necessary this fall if the Maroon and White hope to have staying power in this recruitment. To that end, OC Collin Klein's work may be just as important as any recruiter directly on the case with Ffrench, and I feel good about him being able to make a case on the field.
Standing at 6'1" and 185 LBs at the close of his junior season, Ffrench is an outstanding route-runner with great athleticism. He's not just a highly-ranked guy due to projection of athletic gifts, in other words.
In this time directly following the decommitment and during a hard push from the in-state Seminoles, you have to watch FSU; if he comes out of this period on the recruiting calendar still uncommitted, though, the Aggies will have a shot.
