National Signing Day is approaching and Texas A&M football is looking to land one of the top-five classes in the nation. Who’s left on the board?
Finishing 2020 with one of the top-five classes in the country is exactly what Texas A&M hired Jimbo Fisher for. Sure, there’s more to it such as winning the SEC and contending for national titles, but the Aggies brought him on to shrink the talent gap between Texas A&M and the top of the conference and he’s doing just that.
The Aggies are currently ranked No. 6 in the class of 2020 and are just a couple of big signees away from pulling a top five group.
Who are the top remaining targets for Texas A&M?
As we’ll see later on this list once again, running back is a position which Jimbo Fisher wants to fill in the 2020 class and seems to be one of need with the departure of Jashaun Corbin and two young, relatively unproven backs leading the way.
Darvon Hubbard may not be the highest-rated guy in the class, but he’s someone who could help out in the first couple of years — maybe not as a true freshman. He’s ranked the No. 545 player and 40th-best running back, according to 247Sports. He’s got decent size at 6-foot-0 and 195 pounds and has room to grow in all phases.
Texas A&M seems to be the favorite for Hubbard’s services and it would be a nice addition to the class. He is, however, taking one final visit to LSU before National Signing Day, but Jimbo has been in to see him recently and he’s currently the coach to beat.
The Aggies could use another back and Hubbard may be a 1-2 year project but he has the potential to be special.
