Aggie player enters portal, retweets interesting Tweet

Ish Harris was kind of an undersized linebacker project that didn't really fit DJ Durkin's system so it isn't really a surprise that he's entering the portal but he liked and retweeted the below Tweet on his way out:

That mindset will definitely be a thing nationwide with NIL deals.

The only schools that should care are the poor ones that can't afford it. You know, like when LSU had Perkins make videos begging for NIL money?

Lots of players will enter the portal even if they have no interest in leaving so that they can get NIL bribes to stay.

There is a "direct to player" NIL program that is being used by several teams, with it they used players to post a message asking the public to support them.

A&M players did the same thing, the poster just conveniently forgot to mention that.

I think he was going to be good. He was fast. Made a nice play or two a week ago. He will definitely be a plus to anyone needing fast blitzing linebackers.

Harris was a three-star LB recruit who did not see game action in 2022 despite starting LBs Andre White and Edgerrin Cooper missing multiple games due to injury. Had he stuck around he likely would’ve had a shot to complete next season.

It’s relevant to point out that none of the three defenders who have announced their transfers this past week (LB Ish Harris, DE Donell Harris, DE Elijah Jeudy) recorded a tackle this season. At least so far, these transfers seem to fall into the run of the mill “players looking for playing time” bucket rather than the “sky is falling Jimbo has lost control of the program” variety.

It was inevitable; I wish nothing but the best for all three players.

FYI you can add RB L.J. Johnson (Good Bull Hunting) to the list:

quote:

The transfer announcements continue to roll in following the conclusion of Texas A&M’s disappointing 5-7 season. But luckily for the Aggies, none of the departures so far have come from a starting player. The latest transfer comes from RS freshman running back L.J. Johnson.

After redshirting in 2021, Johnson was deployed primarily as a short yardage by at A&M in 2022, tallying 39 yards and scoring two touchdowns in 10 carries this season. Johnson appeared to cede primary backup duties to sophomore Amari Daniels and freshman Le’Veon Moss. While running back depth is thin for the Aggies in 2023 (assuming the departure of junior Devon Achane), Johnson was going to have a difficult time carving out a starting role, which is likely what led to his departure.

He is joined in the transfer portal this week by DE Donell Harris, DE Elijah Jeudy and LB Ish Harris. Similarly to Johnson, none of these players were expected to be starters in 2023.

Im with you: anyone bitching about nil and how its done is living under a rock & fairly annoying.

The days of the pious complaints about $ are gone; everyone (who wants to win) is paying & its legal. People who clutch their pearls about nil just need to get over it

If he transferred to LSU, it would just be to have a soft defense that wouldn't beat him up in practice.

This is the stuff that will make the bag men realize what a bad investment NIL is.

A real person in the business would know the details and provide the context for how the A&M deals are structured. It’s out there yet you always leave that part out.

Such a shitty “in the business” poster.
