Things continue to go from bad to worse for the Texas A&M football program.

The Aggies lost to Florida 41-24 on Saturday. The fifth straight defeat for Jimbo Fisher's program drops it to 3-6 on the season.

Despite the team's struggles on the field this year, the one glimmer of hope had been Fisher's recruiting. But even that is now taking a hit, as five-star linebacker Anthony Hill Jr. withdrew his commitment to Texas A&M on Monday, according to Hayes Fawcett of On3.

"BREAKING: Five-Star LB Anthony Hill Jr. has Decommitted from Texas A&M," Fawcett tweeted. "The No. 1 LB in the ‘23 Class had been committed to the Aggies since July. Hill tells me he plans on taking his recruitment down to signing day."

Hill is ranked the No. 1 inside linebacker in the 2023 class by On3, 247Sports and Rivals. He had been committed to Texas A&M since July.

The loss of Hill's commitment drops the Aggies' 2023 recruiting class to No. 23 nationally in the 247Sports rankings.

Fisher signed the No. 1 recruiting class, which some services had deemed the best recruiting class in college football history, to Texas A&M in 2022, and for a while, it looked like that momentum would carry over to another highly-ranked class in 2023. But the team's struggles on the field are now bleeding over to the recruiting trail.

Fisher figures to have time to right the ship, as Texas A&M would owe him nearly $86 million if it were to fire him following this season. But he better do so quickly, as it's looking like things could spiral out of control in College Station.
