As if the Texas A&M Football team needed any more talent at the tight end position, they went out and secured the best tight end in the 2019 class a year ago. That tight end is Baylor Cupp, a 6-7, 240-pound pass-catching fiend.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a tight end in recent memory with the same elite physical traits as Cupp.

Unfortunately, his career would have a setback before it even began in College Station. Just before his first season began in 2019, Cupp would suffer an ankle injury that required surgery, knocking him out for his entire true freshman campaign.

After his return from injury, he would instantly suffer a shoulder separation, knocking him out for his second straight season.

Knock on wood, but as of right now, there is nothing holding Baylor Cupp back from seeing action in the 2021-22 season.

Similar to Demond Demas, a former 5-star receiver who didn’t see any playing time in his freshman season, Cupp is a player who has been largely forgotten about by a sizeable chunk of the Aggies’ fanbase.

That shouldn’t be the case though, as Cupp can and likely will be one of the most dangerous tight ends in the country in a few years. It’s easy to forget that this is a 6-7, 240-pound pass-catcher who can reportedly run a 4.55 40-yard dash. Think about that.

Cupp’s presence could help the Aggies in a huge way in an area where they struggled badly in 2020.
