The Jimbo Fisher era was a failure for Texas A&M football, and now the Aggies find themselves needing to pivot in a big way.
Fisher leaves Texas A&M with a 45-25 record, which on its face doesn’t look bad. With that said, he could never win a big game, especially against a ranked SEC opponent.
The one thing Fisher did do was recruit. He brought in the top class in the country on the 2022 recruiting trail and the 2024 class he leaves behind is currently ranked No. 10. He had some hype and momentum built up around the program, without a doubt, and now Texas A&M needs to do all it can to preserve that excitement.
According to hot take artist Stephen A. Smith, that’s where Deion Sanders should come into play for the Aggies. He’s obviously a phenomenal recruiter, and with the backing Texas A&M has, Smith believes Sanders can get the elite players he needs to win big at the college level.
“Deion Sanders in the SEC with that vault that they have available to them. With the hawgs that he can recruit. Because he doesn’t have them at Colorado and he ain’t gonna get ’em,” Smith said, explaining why he thinks the Aggies should go after Sanders.
Smith did go on to say that he doesn’t think Texas A&M will make the call. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t want to see it happen, though.
“Texas A&M, Primetime Deion Sanders in the SEC? That needs to happen,” Smith said.
