Germain Ifedi

Despite being one of the lower rated players of the class, Ifedi ended up as arguably the most productive member of the group. After redshirting his first year on campus the lineman would go on to start the next three seasons for the maroon and white. He attained all SEC honors (including being named an All-American his freshmen campaign) in two seasons.

Ifedi then chose to forgo his senior season and declare for the NFL draft where he would become the 4th straight Texas A&M offensive linemen taken in the first round as pick number 31 to the Seattle Seahawks. Ifedi was a tremendous competitor during his time in Aggieland and helped lead an offensive line that saw 5 of its member drafted to the national football league.

A slot receiver, Holmes played meaningful snaps from the moment he stepped foot on campus. The South Lake Carol prospect provided great leadership and depth throughout his four years on campus. Since graduation Holmes has focused on life after football and started a very successful career at Dallas construction firm.
