Texas A&M’s annual spring game takes place on Saturday, April 8. Here are some storylines to watch out for from the Aggies.
If Texas A&M and head coach Kevin Sumlin want to again be taken seriously in the SEC West, then the Aggies must find a new quarterback and replace All-American defensive end Myles Garrett. So, it will be easier said than done.
With Trevor Knight now gone, the competition to start under center will be between Jake Hubenak and newcomer Kellen Mond. This spring game will most likely not be the decider, as the battle will continue into fall practice, but having a big and effective game in front of the 12th Man could go a long way.
Here are some things to watch out for as the Aggies take part in their annual spring game on Saturday.
Texas A&M Spring Game Information
Date: Saturday, April 8
Time: 2:00 p.m. ET
Venue: Kyle Field
Replacing the presence that was Myles Garrett on the defensive line is an almost impossible job, but there are other holes to fill in the trenches as well. Daeshon Hall also is gone, and that means a couple of players need to step up if John Chavis’ defense wants to keep improving after struggling a bit defensively in years past. Two players who will want to impress during the annual spring game are Zaycoven Henderson and Kingsley Keke.
Player To Watch
Safety Larry Pryor – The Aggies were bad against the pass last season, finishing No. 91 in the nation by allowing 250 passing yards per game. Pryor will be counted on to step in for Justin Evans, who led the team with four interceptions last season. A lot of pressure will be on him to impress with Mond and Hubenak both throwing the ball around.
