With his first offer in hand, Keller (TX) Fossil Ridge wide receiver Aaron Fisher feels quite a bit of relief. But now the 6-foot-3, 185-pound Fisher plans to move forward so that he may have more options by the end of his junior year.
But still, the first one is a charm.
“I got my first offer recently from Arizona,” Fisher said. “It feels good to get the first one. It is like a big load off of my chest.”
Besides the Wildcats, Fisher is also receiving strong interest from Texas Tech, Boise State, and Virginia. So who does he fell will come next?
“I think either Virginia or (Texas) Tech will be the next schools to offer,” Fisher said. “I am for sure going to Tech’s next junior day, but I do plan to go to some others. There are so many of them, I just need to look over everything and see where I will go.”
Fisher has already been to one junior day at Oklahoma and he left with a strong impression of the Sooner program.
But he hasn’t had very strong communications with them as of lately.
“When I went there, it was pretty amazing,” Fisher said. “They had good facilities and great coaches. They still send me letters but that is about it.”
In his quest to finding the right fit, Fisher admitted that he is looking for a team that favors the passing game. He is not necessarily expecting a spread offense, but he wants some touches.
Of course that is not all he is looking for.
“I want to see what a school’s turnout ratio is for athletes graduating,” Fisher said. “Life after football is important to me because this is my life. When it comes to football, I want a school that is going to throw the ball.
“Spread (offense) would be the best thing, but really I just want a school that puts the ball in the air.”
Fisher, who clocked a 4.44 40-yard time, finished the season with 61 receptions for 1,059 yards and 16 touchdowns. As a return specialist, he averaged over 44 yards a return and scored one touchdown.
