A short bio on Jimbo Fisher



Fisher has already welcomed a new recruiting class, taken on pro day for the outgoing Aggies, and looking ahead to this weekend's Maroon & White spring practice game.

On Monday, Eyewitness Sports sat down with Fisher. Among the topics he took on, Fisher addressed the status of Manvel-product, senior tackle Koda Martin. Last week, Martin came down with heat stroke at practice and ended up in intensive care.

Fisher says Martin's health is coming up positive.

"Koda's doing fine. He's recovering very well," said Fisher. "They're gradually working things back in that he'll be back to slightly work out and do things. But he's in great spirits. Everything is well, and everything should be 100 percent recovery."

For the incoming 2018 recruitment class, Fisher is welcoming 23 new commits, eight of which are among the ESPN 300 top recruits.

The Maroon & White Game is set for Saturday at 4 p.m. Fisher makes his Aggies coaching debut on Aug. 30 when Texas A&M welcomes Northwestern State.
