Best Case Scenario No. 1

Aggies finish first or second in the SEC West

The Aggies could have a freshmen dual-threat quarterback starting. The last dual-threat quarterback A&M had for the whole season was a skinny kid out of Kerrville, Texas named Johnny Manziel. He took the Aggies to an 11-2 record with a 6-2 record in SEC play.

Getting Kellen Mond on campus could be huge for Texas A&M. He was 59th overall player in the ESPN300 for the class of 2017. Mond is a 6-foot-3 quarterback from IMG Academy in Florida. Kellen was the 2nd overall dual-threat quarterback in the 2017 class. With Mond as the starting quarterback, the Aggies might have an impressive year. With a few heroic efforts from Mond the Aggies could be in position to finish first or second in the SEC West.

The Texas Aggies have a better offensive line than when Johnny Manziel was at school so Mond will have more time to throw the ball. Mond will have receivers like senior Damion Ratley, junior wide out Christian Kirk, and true freshman Jhamon Ausbon. When the Aggie passing game is not going well there is always the running game. Running backs Keith Ford and Trayveon Williams are both returning to Aggieland. The running game had some positive moments last year and they looked sharp in the A&M Spring Game.

There are a lot of good pieces, but a transcendent quarterback can make the difference. If Mond lives up to his billing the Aggie offense will be scary this season.
