Every team needs a quarterback if they are going to compete in the SEC and Jimbo Fisher and Texas A&M think they have found themselves a good one in Conner Weigman out of Bridgeland (Cypress, TX.) High School for the Aggies recruiting class of 2022.
Weigman is a highly touted 4-star prospect who has torn up the ever-competitive landscape of Texas high school football. He is ranked by the 247Sports Composite as the No. 93 player in the class, the No. 5 dual-threat quarterback, and the No. 16 player in Texas. The 247Sports recruiters are even more bullish on the 6-foot-2.5 inch, 205-pounder, ranking him as the No. 77 player in the country and the No. 4 dual-threat quarterback.
Weigman was named the Offensive MVP of his district this past season as a junior. He passed for over 3,800 yards and 42 touchdowns to just 11 interceptions. He also added 579 yards and an additional nine scores on the ground. One thing to watch with Weigman will be his status as a baseball player. All schools that offered – except Florida – did so with a football/baseball package, but there is some talk that Weigman will be selected in the early rounds of the 2022 MLB Draft. He has, however, stated his desire to play college football over going pro as a baseball player and that will have factored into Fisher’s recruitment here.
The video of Weigman is full of the type of jaw-dropping highlights you would expect from one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the country. His passing is accurate with a strong arm and he has that ability coaches love to scramble behind the line of scrimmage while keeping his eyes downfield, always looking to pass first and run second unless the play is a designed run. When he does run, Weigman is quick to the hole and has plenty of shake in his upper body to beat defensive backs in the open field.
