Jimbo Fisher earned a good chunk of his new 10-year, $95 million contract in just his last few months of work. First, his Texas A&M Aggies took down the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide in College Station in one of the biggest wins in program history.
Now, Fisher is building a national championship contender for the future. The Texas A&M head coach solidified not only the top class of the 2022 recruiting cycle, but the highest-ranked recruiting class of all time according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
Let’s meet every member of this legendary class.
Texas A&M’s 2022 Recruiting Class
Fisher tied up the bow on his all-time recruiting class by inking five-star defensive lineman Shemar Stewart out of Miami, Florida on February’s national signing day. Stewart is the seventh (yes, seventh) five-star recruit to pledge his services to Texas A&M. The others are quarterback Conner Weigman, defensive linemen Walter Nolen and Garbiel Brownlow-Dindy, wide receivers Evan Stewart and Chris Marshall and cornerback Denver Harris.
Out of the rest of Fisher’s 29 signees (including LSU transfer quarterback Max Johnson), 19 are four-stars and only three are three-stars. It’s safe to say the Aggies will be loaded on both sides of the ball in the coming years.
I’m not going to dive deep into how 247Sports‘ algorithm works when it comes to calculating overall points for team rankings, but know anything over 300 is incredible.
Texas A&M’s point total this year? 328.59. Alabama came in second at 322.29.
Compared to other insanely talented recruiting classes that have gone on to have success at the NCAA level, Texas A&M is above the them all. At least on paper.
