Joshua Ellison, a four-star defensive tackle prospect out of the 2019 recruiting class, has committed to the Texas A&M Aggies.

He made the announcement on the mean streets of Twitter.

The commitment comes after Texas A&M lost the pledge of four-star quarterback Grant Gunnell.

According to 247Sports, Ellison is the No. 18 ranked defensive tackle.

This continues the trend of new Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher simply eating on the recruiting trail.

Fisher taking the job came as a bit of a shock to many. However, and outside of the obvious allure of money, there is a connection to Texas A&M for the former Florida State Seminoles coach. That comes in the form of Scott Woodward, who knows Fisher from their days at LSU. Fisher was at LSU between 2000 and 2006, coaching under Nick Saban and Les Miles.

The A&M job was open after the firing of Kevin Sumlin . Sumlin was 51-26 in his career at Texas A&M, but the administration had grew tired of Sumlin after his apparent failures to build upon the 11-2 record in his first season at the school.

Fisher was 83-23 in his eight seasons in Tallahassee, including one national title that he won with Jameis Winston in 2013.

In the later winter of 2018, Fisher is currently winning on the recruiting trail, having already secured six hard commits for the class of 2019.
