Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher took Florida State to the promised land during his time with the Seminoles, but now it looks like he's taking their recruits too.

On Wednesday, 4-star DE prospect Derick Hunter announced that he was flipping from Florida State to Texas A&M, in turn giving Fisher's Aggies a huge boost to the Class of 2019.

Hunter is the No. 19 Strong-Side DE in the country, though he can also play DT, and is the No. 39 prospect from the state of Florida, according to to 247Sports.

The addition of Hunter now has Texas A&M as 247Sports' No. 3 recruiting class in the country, while Florida State have yet to break into the top-10.

In an interview with 247Sports following the announcement, Hunter spoke glowingly about the school and the stadium.

"What won me over [with] A&M, I feel like I needed to separate myself and grow," Hunter said. "I feel like A&M is the right fit for me personally to grow and become a better player and leader."

"It felt like the stadium was shaking the whole game. That's all I can say," Hunter said. "I never expected A&M to blow me away like that."
