The Texas A&M Aggies can add a number of players from their recruiting class of 2018 to their roster when the early signing period begins on Wednesday, Dec. 20.

New Aggies coach Jimbo Fisher will look to sign his first players as the man in charge in College Station. Fisher was hired earlier this month and agreed to the largest contracts in college football history.

According to 247Sports, with 15 commits in the class of 2018, Texas A&M’s incoming class currently ranks fifth in the SEC and 15th in the country.

Here’s everything you need to know about Texas A&M recruiting as the early signing period arrives:

What is the early signing period?

The early signing period is a three-day stretch of time during which recruits in the class of 2018 can sign their National Letters of Intent to the school of their choice. The early signing period makes its debut this year, whereas in all previous years, high school prospects had to wait until National Signing Day in early February to sign their letters of intent. Now prospects who are committed to a school can sign, allowing their recruitments to end while also allowing college coaches to focus on remaining uncommitted target prospects.

When is the early signing period?

The early signing period takes place from Wednesday, Dec. 20 through Friday, Dec. 22, 2017.
