2024 4-Star CB Selman Bridges places Texas A&M among his Top 9 program list
Texas A&M football head coach Jimbo Fisher was vocal this past week about how this team is “hungry” heading into the season, and that same aggressive mentality has carried over into the recruiting trail. On Thursday morning, it was announced that four-star cornerback in the 2024 cycle, Selman Bridges, finalized his Top 9 program list, which includes Texas A&M.
The 6-4, 170lb defensive back out of Temple and No. 5 CB in his class has received a number of offers from Power Five programs and has an official visit set with Arkansas on June 16. In addition to the Razorbacks, Selman has a particular interest in Texas and USC, according to the 247Sports tracker.
Texas A&M offered Bridges back on January 17 and he made an unofficial visit to College Station on January 28.

Like many other football players that have made their way through College Station, Bridges is another multi-sport athlete that could bring his versatility to the Aggies on the gridiron. Outside of football, he’s also competed in basketball and track and field. Bridges averaged 4.1 points and 3.9 rebounds across 34 varsity games in his sophomore basketball season while running 200-meter times of 22.91, 23.09, and 23.13.
That versatility translated over to the football field as he finished his junior year with 46 tackles and two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown. In 2022, he helped Lake Belton finish with an 8-3 record and a Texas 5A D-I first-round playoff appearance.
Bridges currently has no Crystal Ball predictions, but the inclusion of the Maroon and White in his Top 9 programs list builds some encouraging momentum for A&M nonetheless. With six current commits for the Aggies in the 2024 cycle, here’s to hoping Bridges becomes the next addition for Texas A&M’s future.
