Jimbo Fisher continues to put on a recruiting clinic at Texas A&M. On Monday, the Aggies landed a commitment from one of the top kicking prospects in the country, five-star recruit Tyler White.

The 6-foot-5, 200-pound Texas native announced his decision via social media.

"After a great visit with Coach Fisher and Coach Eric Russell I have received a full football scholarship offer to Texas A&M!!" White tweeted. "With that being said, I'm proud to announce that I am committing to continue my academic, football and pursue my baseball career at Texas A&M!!! Gig'em."

White reportedly also had offers on the table from the Texas Longhorns and Miami Hurricanes. The two-sport athlete is the Aggies fourth commitment in the 2023 class.

Tyler White kicked at nearby Southlake High School. According to kicking scout Chris Sailer, the five-star recruit is the "ideal drame" for a D1 kicker and has a "big time" future.

Tyler is a big time high school punting and kicking prospect, wrote in a scouting report. He is big, tall, strong and athletic. Tyler has an ideal frame for a D1 Punter. His punting is a major strength. ... His best balls are measuring 50+ yards, with 5.0+ hang time. He has a big time future as a punter with continued hard work.

Sailer went on to gush over his kicking ability as well:

He is also a fantastic kicker. Tyler hits a great ball off the ground on field goal. He gets the ball up well and has 55+ yard range. His kickoffs are strong for his class. Tyler is a competitor that thrives under pressure. He improves at a steady rate each time we see him. I look forward to seeing what the future holds.

Another good get for Jimbo and the Aggies.
