The Texas A&M football team’s first scrimmage is in the books. On Saturday, the Aggie coaching staff got its first real look at first-year players like Conner Weigman, Evan Stewart, Gabriel Brownlow-Dindy, and a handful of others.

So far, a couple are standing out.

Unsurprisingly, two players that are impressing are two of the guys listed above — Weigman and Stewart. Both of these players held five-star status in high school and were considered one of the best in the country at their respective positions. It looks like enrolling early at Texas A&M is paying off for both of them.

Freshman QB Conner Weigman is already getting first-team reps with the Texas A&M football team

As mentioned, the Texas A&M football team had its first scrimmage of 2022 this past weekend. While Weigman and Stewart both stood out, the former really impressed Jimbo Fisher, earning first-team reps already. Here’s what Fisher said about Weigman, according to Sports Illustrated’s Cole Thompson.

"“Conner, for his first scrimmage, was excellent. He made a lot of plays and actually got some time with the ones and twos. I thought he handled both those situations extremely well.”"

Weigman is fully in the running to be Texas A&M’s next starting quarterback. As things stand, he’ll be competing against LSU transfer Max Johnson and last year’s original starter in Haynes King — it’ll be an uphill battle.

That said, King comes in with a bona fide resume at the high school level. The former High School Quarterback of the Year won’t lay down easily and should have a good shot of earning the starting role. Here’s a little bit about Weigman via 247Sports’ Gabe Brooks.

"Bona fide rifle when required in the intermediate passing game over the middle of the field. Production matches tools. Almost 9,000 passing yards, 2,000-plus rushing yards over three seasons. More than 1,000 passes in game action provide a valuable foundation for development. Not going to be everyone’s cup of tea due to occasional gambles and unorthodox mechanics/technique at times. Can occasionally dial back the velocity and alter throws for appropriate touch."

Again, he has serious talent.

We’ll continue to watch this storyline progress as spring and summer ball continue. Weigman could be a dark horse candidate to be one of the best players on the roster next year.
