It’s hard to find fault with the Texas A&M football team 2022 recruitment class. The Aggies’ record class has seven five-star engagements and set a national record for overall class rating. It’s the best freshman class in college football history.
And it may not happen there.
The Aggies still have a few last-second goals on the board, including a player who was originally a 2023 goal before reclassification. This player is Lebbeus Overtona five-star defensive lineman who is now one of the top players overall in the Class of 2022.
Texas A&M football team at risk of losing this five-star defensive lineman
It’s hard to believe that Jimbo Fisher could add more talent to his 2022 class. As mentioned, it’s already the best class ever – what more could you ask for?
The answer to this question would be “five star 2022 DL Lebbeus Overton”.
As things stand, Texas A&M is the undisputed leader in Overton recruiting. There are three crystal ball predictions for Overton — two for A&M and one for Oklahoma. That said, Oregon could be breathing down the necks of these schools.
Steve Wiltfong speculates that Overton might consider the Ducks as a team to join. Here is what he said.
“Right now, we see the Ducks as the school best positioned to beat the Aggies.
New head coach Dan Lanning is the reason. Overton and Lanning got really close when Lanning was Georgia’s defensive coordinator and Overton is excited now that Lanning is in the corner office. He saw himself dating Eugene and helping Lanning set up this program.
Overton loves Oregon’s young staff, he enjoyed the on-campus vibe when he official in March, and the Nike ties also make a future out West attractive.
As a 6’4.5″, 265 point defensive lineman with a prototypical build for the next level. No matter how stacked the A&M class is already, Overton would be a huge addition.
Target Aggie comes from a footballing family – her dad played at Oklahoma and her brother currently plays at Liberty. His mother was a “standout” volleyball player in Kentucky. The advantage here goes to his father, who was an AD partner at Texas A&M for a decade between 1999 and 2009.
Even though Texas A&M’s 2022 class looks virtually complete, it would be a great field for Jimbo Fisher.
