Speedy Noil Chooses His Jersey Number


Devante “Speedy” Noil has chosen the number he wants to wear for the Aggies. The five star recruit from Edna Karr High School in New Orleans wants to wear number two. Are the Aggie faithful ok with Noil’s choice with Manziel leaving for the NFL after last season? Should that even matter? No one can take away what Johnny Manziel did for the university however, all numbers get re-issued all of the time.

Gabe Bock on twitter tweeted out this early this morning: Fri. Topic: Speedy Noil is apparently wearing #2. Are you FOR or AGAINST A&M allowing Manziel’s #2 to be worn immediate after leaving? Why?

For Noil it could be less about wearing the number that Manziel wore and more about wearing the number he wore while torching defenses as a dual-threat quarterback. This past season alone he passed for 2,235 yards while adding 1,345 on the ground. Noil is a playmaker and in a few years no one will be making a big deal about the number. However, I want to know what the 12th thinks about his selection?

    I like it. It shows his confidence, to be willing to draw the comparisions that will be made.
