Mike Matthews

Matthews, although not the same caliber of athlete as his older brother Jake, provided phenomenal leadership and consistency at center for the Aggie offense. He started for three seasons and was yet another great Matthews to step foot on Kyle Field.

Most memorable moment: “I am the SEC”

Expectations: Met

Julian Obioha

Obioha was a constant in the Aggie lineup from the moment he got to College Station. The New Orleans native finished his career at Texas A&M and has since gone on to play for the New York Jets as an undrafted free agent.

Career stats: 138 tackles, 4.5 sacks

Most memorable moment: “Team pictures come at the end of the season”

Expectations: Met

Alonzo Williams

Williams was easily the most productive defensive player of the class. The defensive tackle provided a great balance to the Aggie defense as a run stopper and pass rusher. Williams started for three seasons and gave the Aggies a much-needed force in their front seven.

Career stats: 114 tackles (13 for loss), 7.5 sacks, 6 pass deflections, and a forced fumble.

Most memorable moment: 2014 vs. Auburn, red zone sack

Expectations: Exceeded
