No. 6: Texas A&M Football’s quarterback position has a lot of potential
Technically, the argument could be made that Texas A&M’s quarterback position is the weakest on the team. The offensive line will only return one starter, but the quarterback position will return zero starters.
Jokes aside, there is a worrying lack of experience when it comes to this team’s quarterbacks. After three and a half steady years of Kellen Mond, the Aggies will have to remember what it’s like to watch a new quarterback settle into their system.
That said, they’ve had good luck at the quarterback spot historically, finding good production under center from each quarterback in the past decade. This year shouldn’t be any different, as Jimbo Fisher has a handful of talented players to choose from.
As of spring football, there are two players who look like they’re competing for the starting spot:
Calzada has more experience and larger sample size with the Aggies, but King seems to be the favorite for this spot. Last year, King served as Kellen Mond’s backup, only appearing in a couple of games and putting up mixed results.
In all likelihood, he will be named the starter. That said, this staff likely won’t be afraid to interchange these two players if necessary. Expect a lot of excitement in this quarterback competition in the preseason leading up to the 2021 college football season.
