College Football News Preview 2020: Top Texas A&M Aggies Players
Best Texas A&M Aggies Offensive Player
QB Kellen Mond, Sr.
Is this the year when Mond makes the big jump up into SEC greatness? Alabama will have a new starting quarterback – at least, it’s not Tua – and LSU and Georgia will have a new guy, too. Mond is one of the conference’s veteran presences, going into his fourth year as the main man, with 52 career touchdown passes, 7,379 yards, and coming off his most accurate campaign.
A runner, he has 18 career scores and 1,315 yards, saving the day in the bowl win over Oklahoma State to close out last year. That’s all well and good, but now he has to be a difference-maker in every game. The second half of the season is a bear, but the experience will be there to handle it.
2. WR Jhamon Ausbon, Sr.
3. RB Isaiah Spiller, Soph.
4. TE Jalen Wydermyer, Soph.
5. WR Demond Demas, Fr.
Best Texas A&M Aggies Defensive Player
LB Buddy Johnson, Sr.
Several Aggie defenders could arguably be in this spot, at least in terms of talent. But the 6-2, 230-pound Johnson is going to be the leader everything is worked around, coming off a team-high 77 tackles with a sack and 9.5 tackles for loss.
By A&M standards, he wasn’t a superstar recruit, and he might not do anything flashy, but he earned his stripes as a strong reserve, and worked his way into the starting spot on the inside as a junior. Tough, strong, and big, he’ll make a whole lot of plays inside the hashmarks.
2. LB Anthony Hines, Jr.
3. S Demani Richardson, Soph.
4. DE Tyree Johnson, Jr.
5. DE Demarvin Leal, Soph.
