2019 Brock tight end Baylor Cupp makes pledge to Texas A&M

The recruiting process has been a whirlwind for Brock tight end Baylor Cupp. As he went from hidden gem to one of the hottest prospects in the country, offers arrived from near and far with USC, LSU, Alabama, Florida, Texas, Georgia, Penn State, and Nebraska putting scholarships on the table in recent weeks.

Texas A&M extended a scholarship offer in February, and it was pretty clear the Aggies struck a chord with the 6-6, 235-pound standout.

"At first, I was mind-blown because that has always been a childhood dream!" Cupp said. "I love the A&M program, and I have only heard good things about (Jimbo Fisher), and I can't wait to meet him!"

A few weeks later, he was able to meet Coach Fisher and see the Texas A&M program at the Aggies' Junior Day. It did not take him long to figure out College Station was the place for him, and at Texas A&M's spring game, he announced his commitment to the Aggies.

Cupp becomes the only tight end in the Aggies' 2019 recruiting class. He joins wide receivers Kameron Brown and Chase Lane on the offensive side of the ball.

As a junior, Cupp played offense and defense for Brock and helped guide the Eagles to the 3A Division I State Championship game.

I know a guy like this is going to see some serious mismatches in 3A, but, my gosh, the kid knows how to block. In the highlights, he just consistently dominates his assignment.

That was a fun highlight film

Love the play where he makes his first block and then outstrides the RB from behind and then makes a second block on the same run

I guess he's a 3* since he isn't a 5-11 dime a dozen 7x7 champ WR. These recruiting services are completely asleep at the wheel on TEs. I think 6 drafted in first two rounds of nfl draft this year and I expect similar in this year's draft.

WR and DB rankings are probably a little inflated right now because those players get so much exposure at 7x7 games/camps.

the OL/DL camps are happening around this time and we should see some linemen players shoot up the rankings soon.

cupp has been noticed by the big programs across the nation and offered for his services. netting him is a big deal, despite his "3 star" ranking.

This just in: Rivals lowers ranking to 2 stars.

I agree. This kid has a great stride. Great pickup for Jimbo.

Baylor Cupp's film looks great. Defenses can't handle a guy who blocks like a lineman and runs and catches like a receiver. After seeing what Jimbo and Tim Fisher have done with our TEs in just a couple of months we have great potential at the position!

The 1st - 5th plays show me all I need to know. Add 15 lbs and this kid could be the next Kelce or Olsen.
