The right tackle spot on the Texas A&M Football team could see an entirely new face

Right Guard, Layden Robinson: Layden Robinson is the lowest-rated player in terms of his ranking in high school, but he is a guy who is going to work hard every single day. This has paid off for him on and off the field, as he is projected to get the start at right guard and recently won an academic award.

Robinson was a 3-star player out of Manvel, Texas, and was actually the 5th-ranked center in his class. Odd that he and Luke Matthews are better at each other’s positions, but now isn’t the time to start questioning Jimbo Fisher’s expertise. Expect a big season out of Layden Robinson, who could be another leader for this team.

Right Tackle, Jahmir Johnson: This is one position for the Aggies that isn’t set in stone. My best guess is that Jahmir Johnson, a transfer from Tennessee, will be filling this role, but Blake Trainor, a physically imposing 6-foot-7 second-year player could easily steal this spot. That said, you have to assume that Fisher would side with the more experienced player in Johnson in this situation.

Johnson originally signed with Tennessee and actually found some early playing time. He wouldn’t be able to lock down the starting spot but was in line to earn in for the 2021 season. That said, you have to assume that he came to College Station to be the starter.

At 6-5, 300 pounds, he could be another menacing presence on this offensive line. After taking the JUCO route, you can expect him to seize any opportunity that he is given.
