Projecting where the top Texas A&M football players will rate in EA College Football 25

In case you haven’t been following along, the college football world—including Texas A&M football fans—has been all abuzz recently at the teaser trailer that just dropped for the new EA College Football 25 game. Dropping the “NCAA” moniker as it appears more and more obvious that the governing body is rapidly obsolescing, there are many things about the upcoming game that signal the dawn of a new era.

With the ability for college athletes to profit off of their name, image and likeness—something that was squarely against the rules at the time the last game came out—now fully integrated into the landscape of the sport, we could see the actual, real rosters loaded into the game. Beforehand, the A&M quarterback wasn’t “Johnny Manziel”; rather, he was “QB #2” (as a sidenote, it’s tragic for A&M fans that the series stopped when it did—there’s basically no doubt that Johnny Football would have been the cover athlete for the next edition).

With that in mind, it’s possible we see the likes of Conner Weigman, Jahdae Walker, and Le’veon Moss preloaded into the game’s data when it is released. Most veterans of the series make it their first move to download the custom rosters on every new file, but it will be kind of cool to see the Aggie players already in the gamefiles.

That said, though, who will be the top dog on the Texas A&M football team when the game finally does get released? Whether the names are in there or not, fans familiar with the roster will have no doubt who “QB #15” or “WR #9” is. 

With this exact question in mind, I’ve decided to go through and rank who I think will be the top five Aggies in the game on the day it’s released. I’m basing my judgments on the memory that the fine folks over at EA can be somewhat swayed by the publicity a given player gets, as well as how many highlights he has put up—and, when all else fails, recruiting rankings. Therefore, this is less a list of how I would rank them, and more how I think a neutral observer who doesn’t pay as much close attention to the Aggies might do.

Let’s jump right in.
