Implication No. 2: The Texas A&M football team will get its leading receiver back for 2022
The receiver position has held a strange storyline over the past couple of seasons for the Texas A&M football team. The Aggies haven’t had a truly dominant WR1. Instead, they’ve seen a handful of players find success, but not separate themselves.
The best example of this is Jalen Wydermyer, who was one of the best tight ends in the country but never had a truly elite season statistically. The Aggie tight end, who recently declared for the NFL Draft, pulled in at least 447 passing yards in all three of his seasons with A&M but never surpassed the 515-yard mark.
Right next to him in the Texas A&M receiving category, you’ll see Ainias Smith who, similarly, accumulated 564 and 509 yards in the past two seasons, respectively. He’s been a rare piece of consistency on an Aggie offense that has been far from consistent.
The Aggie wideout has caught six touchdown passes individually in each of the past two seasons. Again, there are a lot of words to describe Smith — consistent might be the best.
