Speaking of crowded position groups, defensive tackle might be one of the deepest personnel groups on the 2017 Texas A&M football team. Chevis is a former three-star out of Houston, Texas. He will be returning home to play his final season of eligibility at the University of Houston.
Chevis saw an increased role last season, but with the return of Zaycoven Henderson and Daylon Mack it wasn’t going to get any easier for him to get onto the gridiron. Chevis recorded three tackles in his first two years at Texas A&M, but played in every game last year and racked up 25 tackles and a sack.
Verdict: No impact
If there were a spot on the roster where the team could have afforded to lose a rotation player, it’s probably at the defensive tackle position. That’s tough to say given the impact that Chevis would have made in the trenches this coming season.
Of the players transferring from the program Chevis stands out as the one that is most likely to make a big impact elsewhere. He’s proven that he can make plays against SEC-caliber competition and he has the size to be a force against smaller offensive lineman. He’s a guy that the team will miss for his talent, but his production won’t be challenging to replicate in the aggregate.
