Texas A&M landed its tight end for the 2019 recruiting class when three-star Brock product Baylor Cupp chose the Aggies after an unofficial to College Station for the spring game. Cupp is a former state champion who is a tenacious blocker and an excellent pass-catching tight end. His commitment also represents another head-to-head recruiting win for Jimbo Fisher over Tom Herman in the 2019 class.
Fisher’s program entered the weekend with eight commitments, five of which are members of the initial 2019 Fabulous 55. Cupp is likely to be added to the list when it is updated after the summer evaluation period. Only one tight end, Oklahoma commitment Austin Stogner, made the initial list.
Cupp, a 6-foot-6, 235-pound junior, was recruited by Texas A&M assistant coach Tim Brewster, a name familiar to long-time fans of the Longhorns. The attention for Texas at the tight end position shifts to Jared Wiley, a three-star prospect from Temple.
After a lot of thought and prayer, I have decided to continue my academic and athletic career at the University of Texas A&M! I’m grateful to God for everything! I also want to thank all the universities that have recruited me and formed relationships with me! #GigEm 👍🏼 pic.twitter.com/oWQjhw8X4s
