Jahdae Walker Makes Crazy Snag in Bowl Practice Ahead of Texas A&M Football vs. Oklahoma State
Perhaps no player for Texas A&M football had a stronger emergence in the second half of the season than former Grand Valley State WR Jahdae Walker. Walker went from an intriguing addition to a stacked receiver room to one of the feature players at the position by the time the season was done.
Especially in the Ole Miss and LSU games, Walker was invaluable. After dealing with some drop issues earlier on in the season, chiefly against Arkansas, Walker has been catching everything that has been thrown his way in the later games this year.
In that vein, he posted this clip on Twitter earlier in the day today that showcased his incredible catch ability.
It's not the best quality, but if you look closely, you can see Walker, mid-route, reach all the way back behind him to pull in the pass from Jaylen Henderson. This is the kind of play that, were it to happen in a real game, would be fodder for Sportscenter Top 10 pretty much immediately.
Hopefully we see some acrobatic plays like this out of Walker when the actual game comes around. His trajectory is squarely pointed upwards, and the fact that he's making plays like this in practice is further evidence of that.
The Aggies will definitely need him to step up, as well. As I said, the Aggies came into the year with one of the deepest receiver rooms in the nation, and in this game, they'll need to utilize every bit of that depth. Because of a combination of portal entries and injuries, the Aggies are left with only three scholarship receivers for this game—yet, as you can see, the skill level there is still quite high.
