Texas A&M closes out #NSD18 with 4-star ATH and former Alabama commit Vernon Jackson

http://bit.ly/2skgM4s


Quote
Boling's Vernon Jackson is one of the most unique athletes in the state of Texas. The 6-foot-3, 245-pound senior can project to almost any position in college. A high school quarterback and linebacker, he is being recruited as a running back, h-back, fullback, tight end, defensive end and linebacker by different programs.

Jackson had been committed to Alabama since mid-September but, after waiting until Wednesday evening to make an announcement, he has now flipped to Texas A&M.

Jackson is the eighth player to commit to Texas A&M on what was a huge signing day for the Aggies. Six of the eight new signees were four-star prospects and two switched from Alabama to A&M.

The Aggies are still awaiting one more decision as junior college defensive end Dorian Gerald pushed back his signing date to Friday.

Jimbo Fisher on Aggies' National Signing Day: 'Texas A&M got a lot better today': http://www.chron.com/sports/aggies/article/Jimbo-Fisher-on-Aggies-National-Signing-Day-12560122.php … via @houstonchron

A&M put the bow on a signing class of 22 on Wednesday evening – although the bow might come off in the next day or two as the Aggies are still in the hunt for a couple of players.

The latest addition was running back Charles Strong of Union County High in Lake Butler, Fla., who inked with the Aggies while new coach Jimbo Fisher was holding his annual National Signing Day press conference.

"Texas A&M got a lot better today," Fisher said of the overall class of 22.

The Aggies had 15 pledges leading to Wednesday, including 10 early signees from December, and added seven "new" players to the mix. Fourteen are on offense and eight on defense.

Fourteen of the players also are from Texas, and three of the out-of-staters are from Alabama.

"(High school) football in the state of Texas is as good as anywhere," said Fisher, adding that A&M also needs to be a "national brand" as he recruits from coast to coast.

Fisher signed a quarterback in four-star prospect James Foster, although the Aggies already have three underclassmen on scholarship at the position in Nick Starkel, Kellen Mond and Connor Blumrick. Fisher said there can't be enough quarterbacks on a roster because of the potential for injuries.

Jimbo Fisher enjoys the bright lights of the big cities near Texas A&M (the bright lights coming from the high school football fields): https://www.houstonchronicle.com/sports/aggies/article/Jimbo-Fisher-exploits-A-M-s-location-while-also-12563386.php … via @HoustonChron

Jimbo Fisher happily pointed out this week it's an "hour to the edge of Houston" from the Texas A&M campus. The new Aggies coach is like many others in Bryan-College Station - pleased to be a conversation away from the bright lights and shopping of the big city.

Only Fisher's bright lights radiate from high school football fields, and his primary treasure hunting involves finding players he believes will give A&M a chance to compete for Southeastern Conference and national titles.

"We're going to saturate this state from one end to the other," Fisher said of his recruiting philosophy in the nation's second-most populous state.

That saturation starts in and around four of the nation's 11 largest cities, and Fisher was well aware of a Texas map's markings when he uprooted from Florida State to take the A&M gig in December.

"There's (Houston), San Antonio, Dallas, that other town … Austin," Fisher said.
