Standing on the sideline at The Opening Finals in Frisco, Texas,A Dylan WrightA is holding court.

247Sportsa€™ No. 69 overall player in the country isna€™t participating at The Opening due to an injury, but plenty of players come over to chat up the four-star receiver. Wright, at 6-foot-4, is an imposing physical presence and comes with a personality to match. On this day, hea€™s talking to a reporter about the state of Texas recruiting while making bold statements. Most of them revolved around what the state of Texas could be in college football if the top athletes stayed home. But one of his quotes, in regards to first-year Texas A&M head coachA Jimbo Fisher, stands out because it came mostly unprompted.

a€œHea€™s building something that will change the whole thing,a€ Wright told 247Sports.

Wright said this a few weeks before shocking many in the recruiting industry by committing to the Aggies. Only a single Crystal Ball prediction projected it, and Wright had previously been considered a Longhorn lean.

I wrote anA in-depth piece about the recruiting war thata€™s ongoing in the Lone Star State between Texas and Texas A&M last week. Dona€™t expect that to end soon. But it's also important in the present to acknowledge the significant swell Fishera€™s created in Texas. The Aggies own the nationa€™s No. 3 overall recruiting class in the 2019 cycle with Wright's commitment. Theya€™ve owned the state, too. Texas A&M holds 11 verbal pledges from the statea€™s top 30 overall prospects, including four of the top 11.
