Texas might be able to take serious advantage of the turmoil that head coach Jimbo Fisher and the Texas A&M Aggies football program are in next offseason. Texas A&M has a losing record seven games into the 2022 season and only has one win in SEC play.

If Texas A&M continues to struggle on the field, I do believe that its 2023 recruiting class will continue to fall apart. Texas A&M has already lost three commits in the 2023 class since the summer. And I firmly believe that more de-commitments will be on the way for Fisher and the Aggies in the next six weeks or so.

One of the most important Texas A&M commits in the 2023 class that Texas continues to plug away at is the elite five-star Denton Ryan linebacker Anthony Hill. Texas was a top school for Hill before he announced a pretty abrupt commitment to Texas A&M during the summer.

But Hill’s summer commitment to Texas A&M has not prevented Texas’ staff from maintaining contact throughout the fall. Texas will continue to recruit Hill right through the whistle on signing day.

Texas might not need to wait that long, though, to flip Hill’s commitment if the Longhorns continue to experience more success on the field this season than the Aggies. A strong start to the November slate could be more than enough for Texas to keep raising the pressure on Hill to re-open his recruitment.

Hill is clearly the top priority among linebacker recruits in the Longhorns 2023 class. And it’s really starting to look like Texas’ efforts to recruit Hill since his commitment to Texas A&M could start paying off in the near future.

Texas A&M’s future looks anything but certain at the moment. And if the heat keeps dialing up on Fisher and his staff this fall, that will create more rumblings surrounding Hill and the rest of the high-profile commits in the Aggies 2023 class.

A report of potential flip-watch scenarios from Rivals mentions that the Longhorns “could look more appealing” to Hill if Texas A&M continues to falter on the field and on the recruiting trail.
