Alabama Texas A&M NCAA Football

Alabama vs. Texas A&M NCAA college football game Friday, Oct. 7, 2017, in College Station, Texas.

Consensus four-star running back Isaiah Spiller, out of Klein Collins, announced his verbal pledge to Texas A&M in a video posted on Twitter Friday.

The 2019 rusher is the son of former A&M tight end Fred Spiller, who lettered in 2000 under former coach R.C. Slocum.

In the video, the elder Spiller tells his son to “Go fulfill your legacy,” before the revelation of the younger Spiller's A&M selection. The video ends with Fred Spiller telling his son, “Continue the legacy,” while both generations wear maroon gear.

Verbal commitments are nonbinding until the player signs a National Letter of Intent.

Spiller rushed for 1,284 yards and 23 touchdowns during his junior season at Klein Collins. The 6-foot, 201-pound back reportedly held offers from Alabama, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Missouri, Oregon, Baylor, TCU and Michigan, among others, according to

“My senior year at Klein Collins, I’ve got some unfinished business,” Spiller said in the video. “There are so many greats that have come before me. But now it’s my time.”

According to, A&M has 22 commits in the 2019 class, including one five-star and 10 four-star recruits. In head coach Jimbo Fisher’s first full recruiting year with the Aggies, A&M holds the No. 2 ranking in the country for the Class of 2019, behind SEC West foe and reigning national champion Alabama.
