Texas A&M Football RB1 Isaiah Spiller only has room to improve

Even though it feels like Isaiah Spiller has been around forever, he’s only entering his third season with the Aggies. In his first year, he came close, but couldn’t crack 1,000 yards. In year two, he would surpass that total, even in a shortened season.

He stuck around for 2021, which means that he has big plans for the upcoming season. In his first two years, his yards per carry saw a slight increase, but that number could skyrocket in 2021, even if he’s sharing touches with other players from an extremely talented tailback room.

That said, as mentioned previously, we could see his numbers regress slightly to start out the season. With almost an entirely new-look offensive line, it’ll take some time before these runningbacks have the same type of space that they saw last year.

Chemistry between ball carriers and offensive linemen is real, so we should see production skyrocket by the end of the season as they build a relationship.

That said, Spiller is among the best runningbacks in the country. He’s already popping up in the first round of a handful of 2022 mock drafts and could easily become this team’s highest drafted player in next year’s draft.

But he’s not the only talented guy on this unit.
