Texas A&M football head coach Jimbo Fisher completed his 2020 recruiting class with the additions of two signees on National Signing Day.
McKinnley Jackson, from George County High School in Lucedale, Mississippi, is a 6-foot-2, 320-pound defensive tackle. Ranked a four-star recruit according to 247sports.com, he chose to sign his National Letter of Intent with the Aggies over Auburn, Alabama, LSU and Ole Miss.
“He’s a very mature young man, very observant and has a tremendous moral compass,” Fisher said. “He did things the right way and was always upfront.”
The Aggies also received a letter from running back Darvon Hubbard, who, at 6-foot, 195 pounds, was ranked a three-star recruit by 247sports.com. He chose A&M over LSU, Georgia and TCU.
“We loved him; we were on him for a long time,” Fisher said. “We thought the world of him. Of course, you need depth [at running back], but you take him no matter how many backs you have.”
