National Signing Day 2018: Bobby Brown Flips Back to Texas A&M

The one-time Aggie commit spurns Alabama to re-commit to A&M


They don’t pay him the big bucks for nothing.

New Texas A&M Aggies football coach Jimbo Fisher scored a big win by reacquiring 4-star defensive tackle, Arlington, TX product Bobby Brown.

Immediately following the early signing period, Brown de-committed from the Aggies, the biggest factor being the uncertainty of Fisher’s defensive coaching staff following former A&M coach Kevin Sumlin’s ouster.

The school to which he committed? The Alabama Crimson Tide.

As soon as Fisher got settled, though, he was able to get Brown and several others flirting with de-committing back on campus and eventually won them over.

Brown, himself, fills a big need for the Aggies as they finished at the bottom half of the FBS in nearly every major statistical category. What he can help bolster, though, is a defensive front that sacked the quarterback 43 times in 2017.

Fisher getting Mike Elko to leave Notre Dame to be A&M’s defensive coordinator most likely had an impact on Brown’s decision to sign with the Aggies.

Bottom line: Fisher and his staff had a great day on Wednesday and getting Bobby Brown back on board was the capper.

Congrats to Brown and his family!
