Texas A&M Football Breakout Candidate: WR Demond Demas

Speaking of wide receivers, there hasn’t been a more exciting wide receiver prospect than Demond Demas. But after a flood of hype before his freshman season, he would disappear into the shadows of a Texas A&M receiver room that wasn’t particularly great.

In all likelihood, this was due to the fact that he played in an underwhelmingly simple scheme in high school — he had a lot of learning to do when he walked onto campus in College Station.

But a year has gone by, and after riding the bench for 365 days, Demas should be ready to step onto the field. But why does this mean that he’ll have a breakout season?

Well, for starters, the Aggies struggled to create explosive plays in 2020. A large reason behind this is that they didn’t have a speedy, big-bodied guy like Demond Demas who was earning a significant amount of snaps. The team was near the bottom of the conference in 25+ yard passing plays.

This could partially be due to the fact that Kellen Mond excelled without those types of passes. If that is the case, things will likely change now that he’s gone. With a new quarterback will come a new personality for this offensive unit.

If Demas is comfortable with the offense, there’s no reason why he won’t be a top target for Haynes King or Zach Calzada.
