A Texas A&M staff member talks money to recruits

“We were second in recruiting last year, A&M was first,” Saban said. “A&M bought all the players on their team. Made a deal for name and image and likeness. We didn’t buy a single player. I don’t know if we can maintain that in the future because more and more people are doing it.

Fisher abruptly responded as if Saban’s comments were completely untrue.

The SEC reprimanded both coaches following the incident, and Texas A&M officials approached the SEC about the repercussions of Saban’s actions even after Saban publicly apologized on Sirius XM radio.

“…I really didn’t want to isolate anyone. I apologize for that. But you know, it’s the whole system and is it a sustainable system? And is it really good for college football, I think the name and image and likeness is good for college football., I think my role, our role is to have a program that creates value for the future of the guys, so they focus on education, becoming better people, being a good person, learning habits that will help, succeed and see if they can develop a football career.

It seems Saban’s original comments aren’t fake after all.

The Aggies earned a modern-day record of eight five-star rookies on their way to the all-time best recruiting class in 2022, according to 247Sports.
