The Texas A&M Aggies may be 3-2 and unranked so far in the 2018 football season, but they’re killing it on the recruiting trail, and we all know that’s what really matters. With the decommitment of Georgia pledge Jadon Haselwood, the Aggies have claimed the top spot in the 247 Sports 2019 Team Rankings.

Jokes aside, and whether or not you think A&M will finish in the top spot (they likely won’t), Jimbo Fisher is proving his worth on the recruiting trail, gaining commitments with as much or more fervor than his predecessor.
