Jimbo Fisher is building a quality 2022 recruiting class in College Station. Isaiah Sategna, who committed in March, is just another player that will have a big impact on the Aggies in years to come.

Sategna has been plucked from the back yard of an SEC rival – he went to school at Fayetteville (Fayetteville, AR) High School – and this four-star prospect picked the Aggies over the likes of Arkansas and Auburn.
Sategna is a highly regarded prospect. The 5-foot-11, 170 pounder is rated by the 247Sports Composite Rankings. He’s the No. 248 player in the nation, the No. 36 wide receiver, and the No. 1 player coming out of Arkansas in 2022. The staff of 247Sports like Sategna even better, rating him as the No. 185 player in the country, the No. 27 wide receiver, and agreeing with his ranking as the No. 1 player in Arkansas.
Sategna has a big time pedigree when it comes to speed and that is a trait immediately obvious when watching his film. His father is an assistant track and field coach at Arkansas, while his mother competed for Jamaica in the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. He is a two-sport athlete, running a 10.80-second 100-yard dash as a freshman.
In the video below you can see Sategna taking over games as a junior. He had over 800 receiving yards and eight touchdowns in eight games, posting a ridiculous 21.1 yards per catch. His greatest asset is his speed and in the second play, you can see how Sategna can turn a simple slant route into a long touchdown when he turns on the jets and simply runs away from defenders. The first play is also an example of this as Sategna scores on a kickoff return as he is afforded the space to open up the burners and at that point the result of the play is academic. He is just that fast.
The third play is also important. This one shows Sategna breaking press coverage with a little hip shimmy before running down the sideline for a touchdown. Defenders will look to put a body on him to contain his speed in the SEC, so something as simple as a little hip wiggle – followed by a precise route – will separate Sategna from other burners down the line.
