Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher recently spoke about five-star quarterback signee Conner Weigman and his plans for the two-sport athlete.

According to Fisher, Weigman's plan is to focus on football first and then get into baseball. Per On3:

“Yeah he’s in football right now, that was his choice,” Fisher said.

“When I first signed him I assumed he would stay and play baseball. Because he’s a significant baseball player and could be a very high draft pick. But he’s impressed me from the get-go saying, ‘coach I want to be a football player first, then play baseball.’ He told me his plan of coming in and not doing baseball, so he could learn the offense, go through fall ball, and then come back like a normal freshman and be able to both, which would be great. I’ve had multiple guys do that, whether it’s track here, or baseball somewhere else I’ve been. Jameis [Winston] was a great example of that. He could have been a first or second-round baseball guy just like he was for football, and the same for Conner. But he wants to be a football guy first and wants to play baseball and I respect that.”
