Jimbo Fisher has Texas A&M pointed entirely in the right direction as the school will be highly ranked heading into the 2021 season and the Aggies are nailing it on the recruiting trail too. The latest addition to Fisher’s recruiting class of 2022 is West Brook (Beaumont, TX) High School multi-position athlete Bryce Anderson.

Bryce Anderson – a 6-foot, 190 pounder – has been recruited to College Station as a safety, a position where he is expected to excel at the collegiate level.
Anderson is ranked by the 247Sports Composite as the No. 48 player in the class regardless of position. He is also seen as being the fourth-best safety prospect in the entire class and as the No. 12 player in the state of Texas. He committed to Texas A&M over offers from Alabama, LSU, Arizona State, and Texas. Anderson is a huge win for Fisher in the recruiting game.
In the video below you can see why elite schools love Anderson. He has a verified 10.48 time in the 100-yard-dash and he translates that easy top-end speed laterally with an outstanding ability to cut and accelerate. Expect to see some of Anderson on special teams – possibly even as a return guy – as he gets the coaching needed to switch full time to safety after a high school career of splitting time between that and quarterback.
The video focuses on both positions and one thing to take from the offensive highlights is the awareness that Anderson shows. The vision that made him a special quarterback in high school will translate to safety as he is able to read an offense – especially ones with similar schemes – and thus be able to defend what is coming at him. His speed and quickness are also on show here, with Anderson’s ability to change direction on a dime something that will help him translate swiftly to the college game.
