The Texas A&M football team has an underrated group of pass-catchers
Last year, the Texas A&M Football team had a strange situation at the wide receiver position. Their leading receiver in Ainias Smith wasn’t really a wide receiver. The next-best pass-catcher was a tight end. The player behind both of them was Chase Lane, who was thought of as the team’s third option leading into the season.
Due to injuries and an opt-out from the team’s leading receiver, the Aggies’ receiving corps was limited in 2020. In 2021, they’ll be at full strength.
The Texas A&M Football team has one of the best returning tight ends in college football in Jalen Wydermyer. He was a strong option in 2020, but 2021 could see him as this team’s leading receiver. But if it’s not Wydermyer headlining the pass catchers of this team, there is a long line of players waiting to step up.
The first of those players is Ainias Smith, who seems to be making more of a full-time shift to the wide receiver position. He’s one of the most versatile players in the country and should be electric no matter where he lines up.
Behind him, you have Caleb Chapman, who looked like he may emerge as a deep-threat and the team’s top receiver before an injury took him out of the 2020 season. I could keep going, the list almost never ends.
The Aggies offense has threatening players at every position. If the stars align, this could be a terrifying team.
