Texas A&M Football Recruiting

2022 Ponchatoula (LA) five-star S Jacoby Mathews signs with Texas A&M

Jimbo Fisher has reeled in a big one today as Ponchatoula (LA) safety Jacoby Mathews‍ has signed with Texas A&M.

Widely considered one of the top overall defensive prospects in the country, Mathews chooses the Aggies over finalists Florida and LSU, and he held offers from schools across the country.

A one-time LSU commit, Mathews brings a rare blend of size and speed to the back end of the defense. He is extremely physical and should provide some uneasy crossing routes for opposing wide receivers. Mathews has played all over the field as a high school prospect and has flashed elite playmaking traits on the offensive side of the ball as well. Long, rangy and very athletic, Mathews checks every box (and then some) when you’re talking about an SEC West defender.

You can view Mathews’ senior tape below.

Mathews joins Denver Harris‍, Deyon Bouie‍, Bryce Anderson‍, Bobby Taylor‍ and Jarred Kerr‍ in one of the nation’s best defensive back recruiting classes, and he is the 29th commitment in Texas A&M’s historic 2022 recruiting class.

Stay tuned. We'll have more reaction and breakdown for TexAgs Premium subscribers soon.

If I watched Jimbo's presser today, I'd come play for him, too.

The defense is getting scary. If they can keep most of these guys together and not headed to the NFL after a couple of years, I think more than one national championship is possible. The other interesting thing to see will be the gravity that this recruiting class has on the 5-stars in next year's class. If I'm a 5-star, I want to go play with these guys and win titles and raise my NFL stock.

So the big question now is does Perkins want to look like an idiot by going somewhere else and watching these guys win titles he could have been a part of if he just stuck with his commitment?

Well I see Perkins signed with LSU. He now gets to watch this A&M class do all that they are going to do. And since he went to LSU, he is going to get to watch them up close every year. I think he listened to his uncle and will regret it after a year at LSU. I bet he is portal material in 2023.

Maybe. Especially if B Kelly plays "Bump 'n Grind".

Kelly has never been able to win a big game. Even with all the free shots he got at Notre Dame. Nothing but a string of double digit losses. I would like to thank LSU for hiring him as their coach.

I tend to agree and if that happens hopefully we won't take him then. Let him go play for Old Miss... They deserve each other.
