A&M freshman quarterback hopeful unafraid to speak out on race-related issues

Ever since four-star prospect Tyreke Smith went to an Ohio State football camp, many have talked about the shirt he wore.The defensive end rocked a white shirt that said "I hope I don't get killed for being black today," which inevitably drew a ton of angry comments on Twitter (Pro tip: Never tweet at recruits). Smith told elevenwarriors.com he wanted to "wear the shirt because I wanted to bring attention to the epidemic of blacks being killed at an alarming rate."Smith clearly isn't shy about speaking out on the issue. And neither is Texas A&M true freshman Kellen Mond. Mond, like Smith, is...

Ranking Texas A&M's best players: Nos. 15-11 ask whether Hubenak, Starkel or Mond are the Aggies' best option

Almost all of Texas A&M's top 10 players have cemented themselves as legitimate college football athletes. Outside that list consists of much more uncertainty. Monday's article (Nos. 25-21) highlighted experienced players who weren't proven. Tuesday's list (Nos. 20-16) comprised of players lacking both experience and validation.The next five consists of players with variations of the two aforementioned categories. Despite their differences, they each have one thing in common — their high expectations. Here's a look at A&M's best players outside of the top 10.15. Kellen Mond, QBMond...

Howard's 12 Ks, Merrill HR help TCU oust Aggies from CWS 4-1

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Roommates Brian Howard and Ryan Merrill are going to have plenty to talk about around their apartment whenever they and the rest of the TCU Horned Frogs return to Fort Worth.Howard matched his career high with 12 strikeouts in seven-plus innings. Merrill, playing before friends and family in his hometown, homered to start a three-run third inning and the roomies helped keep the Frogs' season going with a 4-1 win over Texas A&M in a College World Series elimination game Tuesday."Big Game Howie," as Howard is known around the program, flummoxed the Aggies with pinpoint...

Ranking the players on Texas A&M's roster: Nos. 20-16 feature experienced players with much to prove

Monday's first group of Aggies (Nos. 25-21) featured experienced players who weren't proven at this point, such as Daylon Mack.Up next is a bunch that lacks in both categories. Each athlete should receive starting roles this fall, but none of them are completely proven just yet. Despite the uncertainty, Texas A&M will ask a lot out of these players in 2017.20. Damion Ratley, WRAlthough he was buried in the depth chart early on, Damion Ratley received many opportunities. The receiver dropped passes, couldn't get open and didn't contribute in any other way. Since Speedy Noil, Ricky Seals-Jones,...

Ranking the best players on Texas A&M's roster, Nos. 25-21: Could Aaron Hansford become a primary receiver?

Ranking the best players on Texas A&M's roster isn't an easy task.Several key players from both sides of the ball departed after the 2016 season. What remains is a group mostly comprised of potential.A&M's defensive end, receiver, quarterback, and linebacker positions are inexperienced. Therefore, some players will be based on hype — instead of proven skill — in SportsDay's top 25 rankings this week for the Aggies.To start off the list, here is Nos. 25-21 below. Unlike a couple other groups, this bunch actually possesses experience. Validation is something each of these players...

Texas A&M's future nonconference schedules: No Longhorns, but plenty of other big-name programs booked

Texas A&M's future nonconference schedules: No Longhorns, but plenty of other big-name programs booked

There tends to be a pattern when SEC teams organize nonconference schedules: only one out of the four opponents is a tough Power Five team.Texas A&M's schedules from 2015 and onward certainly fit that mold. It is a smart way for teams to take a break from the daunting SEC with easy contests. Each season until 2025, the Aggies possess a schedule under this category. The Aggies seem willing to venture into any conference and face any team; that is, besides the Texas Longhorns. The other side doesn't seem eager to pull the trigger either, although rumors continue to circulate about a revival...
