Going into the 2022 football season, Aggies Wire will be looking at each scholarship player listed on the Texas A&M roster.
Over the preseason, each profile will cover where the player is from, how recruiting websites rated them coming out of high school, and what role they will play for Jimbo Fisher this season.
Reuben Fatheree is entering his sophomore season as the starting right tackle for the Aggies, looking to build off what was a successful freshman campaign during the 2021 season. Hailing from Richmond, Texas, Fatheree was a two-sport athlete at Foster High School, participating in football and basketball, a trait that headman Jimbo Fisher looks for the most when looking at recruits’ athletic history. Fatheree played four varsity seasons for Foster at the left tackle and right tackle position, earning First-team all-district selection as an offensive tackle during his 2017 freshman season, and First-team all-district honors at offensive tackle during his 2018 sophomore season. After committing to Texas A&M on June 1, 2020, Fatheree went on to start 9 out of 11 games during the 2021 season at the right tackle position, making his first career start against Arkansas on Sept. 25th. At the end of the season, he received the Offensive Top Newcomer and Most Improved Award, along with the Freshman Aggie Award for strength & conditioning at the team’s annual football banquet. Reuben Fatheree is going into the 2022 season with high expectations coming his way, and after what we all saw in 2021, expect him to take the next step in his development.

Depth Chart Overview
Reuben Fatheree (Sophomore) is currently projected as the starting right tackle on the offensive line in Texas A&M’s pro-style offensive, led by Head Coach, Jimbo Fisher, and Offensive Coordinator, Darrell Dickey. Fatheree is in a first-team offensive line group that includes left tackle, Trey Zuhn III (Redshirt Freshman), left guard, Jordan Spasojevic-Moko (Redshirt Sophomore), center, Bryce Foster (Sophomore), and right guard, Layden Robinson (Redshirt Junior).
Let’s be real, Reuben Fatheree is a skyscraper of a man, standing at 6-8 and weighing in at a whopping 320lbs, and looking more like a 250 pounder. With many taller offensive tackles having issues with balance, heavy feet, and general quickness out of their stance, Fatheree is the antithesis of those commonalities; Fatheree is relatively quick and light on his feet in both the passing and run game and consistently exhibits great recovery skills against more athletic and pass rush savvy defensive ends. in open space, Fatheree is a violent run blocker with the potential to be one of the better pins and pull blockers at the next level due to his speed and athleticism. Due to his huge frame, Fatheree still has room to add healthy weight and continue to get stronger going into the 2022 season. Look for Reuben Fatheree, Bryce Foster, and Layden Robinson to elevate their game this year and potentially become one of the best offensive line trifectas in the country by mid-season.
