For a stretch in the 2010s, the Texas A&M football team was known as one of the best passing schools in the entire country. The primary contributor to this offense is Johnny Manziel, who cemented himself as one of the best quarterbacks in college football history.

But he didn’t do it alone.

The legendary Aggie quarterback was accompanied by an elite wide receiver in Mike Evans, who has continued his success in the NFL. The former Aggie wideout has followed an All-American selection at Texas A&M with four Pro Bowl selections in the NFL.

Mike Evans was listed as a top-20 all-time wide receiver by Big Game Boomer

This week, Big Game Boomer released its top 100 wide receivers of all time at the college football level. Mike Evans made the cut. Evans was surrounded by talented players in the top-20 such as Calvin Johnson, Amari Cooper, and Michael Irvin.

The former Aggie wideout only played two seasons of college football. That was enough to make a profound impact.

Evans put together a resume that showcased 2,499 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns, 12 of which came in his second season. It’s hard to see a world where anybody surpasses Evans as the greatest receiver in Texas A&M football history.

It’s not all fun and dandy for Mike Evans — the Aggie receiver was recently snubbed from Jalen Ramsey’s top five NFL receivers. Technically, it wasn’t his top five receivers, rather a list of top five players he is tasked to cover. This could lend itself to the concept that Ramsey is only tasked to cover Evans once per year.

The alternative is that he simply forgot Evans, which seems unlikely. Still, it happens from time to time when players are put on the spot.

The fact of the matter is that Evans is one of the more unforgettable wide receivers in the league. In his eight-season career, he has accumulated at least 1,000 yards every single year — nobody else in the history of the league has done that to start their career. During that time, he has caught 75 touchdown passes.

Evans should continue to thrive with the return of his quarterback, Tom Brady.
