The Texas A&M football team had it better than most schools, but the quarterback position was not one with much confidence behind it in 2021. The Aggies kicked off the year with Haynes King under center before a leg injury would knock him out for the remainder of the year.
Zach Calzada came in and after a slow start, earned respect with a win over Alabama. Unfortunately, the offense was not what it could have been in College Station and looked extremely restricted the entire year. Calzada finished the 2021 regular season having completed 56.7% of his passes for 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
Naturally, Texas A&M was one of the first schools to come up when former top-overall prospect and Ohio State quarterback Quinn Ewers entered the transfer portal.
Will the Texas A&M football team even target Quinn Ewers?
The argument can and will be made that the Texas A&M football team is set at the quarterback position despite what this past season told us. Even though it was arguably the least productive passing year this century from the Aggies, there’s more than enough talent ready to take the reigns of this offense.
With Haynes King, the original starter, set to return next year alongside five-star incoming freshman Conner Weigman, there’s no lack of talent on this team. But when the top-overall prospect from a year ago is available in the transfer portal, you go after him.
But will A&M even target Ewers?
Sure. Yes, no, I don’t know. That said, I’m going to be coming up with three reasons why Quinn Ewers should be interested in playing football for Jimbo Fisher in Aggieland.
