Texas A&M football picks up commitment from Iowa WR Jacob Bostick; can former Hawkeye be the depth Aggies need at wideout?

It has been a well-worn topic on this site and in Texas A&M football circles generally that the Aggies have been in desperate need of further depth at wideout. Since Troy transfer Jabre Barber went down with injury in the spring, the outlook has been murky as to who will play where for the Maroon and White.

While the starting lineup still likely remains an open question, Texas A&M football picked up a valuable piece today nonetheless. Former Iowa Hawkeye Jacob Bostick posted on social media that he has committed to Texas A&M football.

Bostick was in Iowa City for two years but didn't record any statistics in his time with the Hawkeyes. Touches for wide receivers have been few and far between for Kirk Ferentz's teams over the years, so that's not extremely surprising, but it does mean he is still something of an unknown factor.

What we do know is that he is tall, lanky, and athletic. Consulting his recruiting page reveals that he has a verified 40-inch vertical and a 3.91 20-yard shuttle time. As I touched on in my article about his visit to College Station, Bostick's comparison on 247 is Aggie fan favorite Josh Reynolds. He certainly has a similar physical profile—if he can match the productive career that Reynolds put together for the Aggies some years ago, then this will be one of the biggest wins of the cycle.

His actual value as regards production, though, is still an unknown, as I said. I wouldn't be surprised to see him earning a role and getting some snaps throughout the upcoming season.

Bostick chose the Aggies over Ole Miss and others. As a transfer, he can join the team right away for summer workouts.
