Kellen Mond’s Texas A&M career was excellent, but his predecessors were better
Kellen Mond has nothing to hang his head about when looking back at his NCAA Football career. As the 108th overall prospect in his class, he joined the Texas A&M football roster and made some noise.
But he may be a step behind some A&M legends.
It’s hard to say that Mond was a better quarterback than some of his predecessors in College Station. We’re talking about the school that housed Johnny Manziel, one of the greatest players that ever stepped foot onto a football field.
Look further down that list and you won’t receive any clarity. From Ryan Tannehill to Gary Kubiak, this school has been elite at the quarterback spot. Kellen Mond was the most recent, but he was part of a great system that has produced incredible talent.
That said, he should still find his name on the top ten all-time quarterback list for Texas A&M.
Looking at the Aggies’ all-time quarterback statistics, Mond is near the top in every single category. Yes, this is largely because he has been the passer for TAMU for four years but there is something to be said about that type of longevity.
In the passing yards category, Mond will find himself at the top of the list with 9,661 yards. It’s not close either — he holds the top spot by over 1,500 yards. He is also the Aggies’ all-time leader in passing touchdowns with 71, four ahead of Jerrod Johnson.
So while he may not have been the flashiest player in the world, he has given this school four incredible years under center.
In fact, he may have developed into the Aggies’ best NFL prospect in years.
