Ainias Smith Scores Third First-Half TD for Texas A&M Football
Late in the first half against South Carolina, Texas A&M football has begun to put things together offensively. Max Johnson looked lost at first, and the Aggie run game was pretty much headed nowhere. On the last three drives of the half, though, Texas A&M football has found something, scoring on each drive. The last of those three scores was courtesy of Ainias Smith, which you can see below:
What a play by the super senior for Texas A&M football. Ainias comes wide open on a deep crossing route, and Max delivers the ball right on target. 0 streaks down the sideline, evades multiple defenders, and powers through a tackler into the end zone. Texas A&M football fans can forget just how good this guy is, due to his injury late last year and the passing game’s recent struggles since Weigman went down, but Ainias has no problem reminding us nearly every game that he’s that guy.
This play could help the Aggies both on and off the field, it seems, too. A guy who the Texas A&M football staff has pitched on being the one to take up Smith’s mantle is reportedly in attendance today in recent decommit Drelon Miller. Lots of people had Miller penciled in to change his pledge to the Tigers, yet he is in College Station today. All I’m saying is that for as little action as Smith has gotten over the last couple of weeks, when Miller’s decision to change his pledge was purportedly made, a play like this really helps.
