The Texas A&M football team’s spring game is still over a month away. Heck, spring practice hasn’t even begun, with the first practice being scheduled for March 7th, kicking off Texas A&M football for the 2022 calendar year.

As usual, there is a lot of hype surrounding the program. The Aggies are currently landing in the top ten of nearly every way-too-early ranking system, with the record-breaking 2022 class looking like a driving force behind this.

And with new players, Aggie fans will be learning new faces. Which players will be stepping into a larger role and who should we keep an eye on?

These are three way-too-early Texas A&M football players to watch during springtime

Conner Weigman, Fr. QB

The most obvious player to keep an eye on in this cycle is Conner Weigman, who will be coming in as a freshman and immediately competing for the starting quarterback job.

Weigman was the High School Quarterback of the Year in the nation and could give A&M an extremely high ceiling under center, something they were missing out on with Zach Calzada as the starter last season.

During the spring game, we’ll get a good grasp on two things — Weigman’s chemistry with the team and his ability to adjust to the Aggies’ system.

Caleb Chapman, Sr. WR

I have been on the Caleb Chapman hype train for a long time with little-to-no reward. This isn’t a knock against Chapman, who has looked elite when healthy. But the issue with Chapman is just that — his health.

The Aggie wideout has the potential to be this team’s top receiver. His combination of height, speed, and general athleticism may not be matched in the SEC. That said, he has shown no ability to stay healthy whatsoever.

During spring football, we’ll get an idea of whether or not Chapman is truly back to full health and where he stands on the team’s depth chart.

Bobby Taylor, Fr. CB

I tried to get creative with my third pick, so the freshman cornerback Bobby Taylor may not be the name you were expecting to see here. That said, Taylor probably has the best work ethic of anybody on this roster and will be a huge locker room guy — his presence will be big over the next few years for this football team.

With a couple of returning senior cornerbacks and some younger talent beneath them, Taylor likely will not see too many snaps early. That said, we can see what type of energy he is going to bring to the field in the spring game.
