Last season, the Texas A&M Football team did not have a productive year from its wide receivers. The team’s top receiver in Chase Lane had just 409 yards. Nobody beyond that had over 200 yards.
The point here is that the Aggies will need all of the help that they can get at the receiver position. While they had a veteran quarterback in Kellen Mond in 2020, they’ll be relying on an inexperienced receiving corps to guide a first-year starter in 2021.
Between returning receivers last season, there is a lot of hope in college station. Ainias Smith looks like he’ll be shifting more permanently to the wide receiver position, while Caleb Chapman, the team’s second-leading receiver, will be returning from an injury.
But none of these guys can bring the same level of excitement as one guy on the roster.
During the Texas A&M Football coaches night, Jimbo Fisher complimented Demond Demas
Demond Demas is a name that Aggie fans thought they’d be hearing a lot more of when he arrived on campus. In high school, he was a 5-star recruit, known for being one of the best wide receiver prospects in recent memory.
He may be forgotten about, but Demas is still one of the most explosive athletes in college football. Once he gets a chance, there will be no stopping him in the Maroon and white.
He missed out on playing time in his first season with the Aggies, mainly due to the fact that he played in an oversimplified system in high school — the wideout had a lot of learning to do. But based on some comments by Jimbo Fisher, 2020 might be the year that he steps into the spotlight.
According to Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle, Jimbo Fisher made multiple mentions of Demas during the Texas A&M Football events on May 5th.
Jimbo Fisher revealed a lot of information about the Texas A&M Football team, so hearing Demas receive some praise will have fans excited as ever. If he can step up as a big-bodied, speedy receiver, there won’t be a cornerback in the country who can cover him.
The potential that Demas has cannot be understated. The second-year receiver could easily become one of the best in the country.
