Jimbo Fisher is preparing to enter his first season as Texas A&M football coach after a lengthy tenure in Tallahassee with the Florida State Seminoles.
On National Signing Day, Fisher’s Aggies finished with the No. 17-ranked class in the nation for 2018, but that hasn’t stopped him from predicting big things on the recruiting trail moving forward.
There have been some concerns about Fisher’s ability to recruit in Texas since he rarely did so during his time at Florida State, but he has the utmost confidence in his staff.
Looking ahead at 2019, Fisher predicts Texas A&M will finish with one of the nation’s top classes.
“We’ll end up being one or two,” Fisher said Wednesday during the National Signing Day 2018, as transcribed by CBS Sports. “I’m talking about 10 guys that are right [there]. I’m talking about first-, second-round draft pick guys. There’s some phenomenal players.”
It will be interesting to see how Fisher fares in his first season leading the Aggies, because that will directly impact his success on the recruiting trail. But if his confidence is any indication, there is nothing to worry about.
Texas A&M kicks off its 2018 campaign on Saturday, Sept. 1 against Northwestern State.
