Texas A&M Football Week 2 Star No. 3: DE Micheal Clemons
Micheal Clemons was awfully quiet in his Week 1 performance, wouldn’t you say? As a result, we got a larger dose of DeMarvin Leal and a look at some freshmen, including Shemar Turner, who had a great first career game.
But why didn’t we see much of Clemons. Well, the primary reason would be because he didn’t suit up at all for the game. After an arrest in the week leading up to the Aggies’ home opener, Clemons was arrested and suspended.
Fortunately, his suspension has ended and he will be back on the field, giving the Aggies the experience that they were expected on the defensive line to start the year.
Last season, Clemons was having a great year before hitting the deck with an injury. The now 6th-year senior had 4.5 tackles for loss and four sacks in just five games in 2020. That said, he hasn’t played a complete season in the entirety of his career — it looks like this year was no exception to that.
Texas A&M will be happy to have their defensive leader back though, as Clemons is the oldest active player on this team. He’ll keep a relatively young defensive line organized throughout, especially considering the continued absence of McKinnley Jackson, who was supposed to fill in for Bobby Brown III.
Look for Clemons to be all over the field making plays on Saturday.
