Top NDSU receiver Eli Green enters transfer portal; Should Texas A&M football pursue?

After missing out on a couple of their top portal targets at the wide receiver position this cycle, Texas A&M football is searching for answers. The Aggies hosted a pair of highly-regarded transfers, but were surprisingly unable to close on either one of them, leaving the Maroon and White high and dry.

However, just because they missed on their first pass doesn't mean the portal is completely tapped out. For example, there is a possibility that A&M will be able to bring in Ole Miss's Zakhari Franklin, provided his is a graduate transfer.

Now, another target is emerging that A&M could have some interest in. Receiver Eli Green from the dreaded and feared North Dakota State Bison has entered the transfer portal, as of today. Green was the leading receiver for NDSU last year, notching 877 yards on 51 catches, along with four touchdowns. He was a versatile piece as well, recording 128 yards rushing on 14 attempts.

Though Green comes from a lower level, he clearly comes from a championship-level program. The run that the Bison went on over the course of the last decade is one for which it is difficult to find an analogue in the whole sport. They've readily dispatched with more than one Power 5 program, when said programs are foolish enough to schedule a matchup with them.

At 5'11" and 186 LBs, Green isn't the biggest guy, but this could well mean that he is suited to the slot position, where the Aggies have the most need right now. Judging from his game log, Green is just now beginning to play his best football, and Texas A&M football would certainly love if he continued his breakout down south in College Station.
