Ags, of your talented ‘22 class, who is likely to start or play significantly this season?

Title

Just curious.

That class is going to transfer so fast that they shouldn’t even bother sewing names on the jerseys

I really don’t know...we are replacing over 1/2 the starters on both offense and defense. The opportunity is there for a freshman to step up. But, there is a world of difference of dominating a district high school game, last fall, and lining up against a Miami, Bama, Ark or LSU team every week. I don’t care how talented a freshman may be, playing a veteran SEC team is an adjustment. Last year the Aggie O and D lines didn’t come together for weeks. The QB situation never did. Aggies have only the summer camp and two weeks of the season to set a roster for a tough following four weeks. Miami, Arkansas, always dangerous MSU with the pirates air raid and then Bama.

WR - Evan Stewart will start. We needed a playmaker at WR. Evan has been here since the spring and has showed out from day 1. Chris Marshall and Noah Thomas both look good, but may not be ready early on.

DL - Anthony Lucas made waves in spring camp and will receive significant playing time. I could also see Walter Nolen, Shemar Stewart seeing playing time this season, but will not start. Brownlow-Dindy was here in spring but rehabbing an injury from UA-AA game. LT Overton is 17 years old I believe, but extremely talented. We will see how quickly he picks things up. All of the 5* freshman DL will be in the 2 or at least 3 deep DL rotation this year.

TE - Expect one or more of the tight ends to receive playing time early, if not start. Jake Johnson was the only early enrollee TE and looked really good. Donovan Green and Theodor Melin-Ohrstrom were not early enrollees so they may not be seeing playing time right away. The Swede looks like a monster though and can move.

DB - Antonio Johnson and Demani Richardson have 2 out of the 3 SS/FS/Nickel positions locked down. Jalen Jones should move from corner to the remaining starting position, imo. We have some experienced corners, but if they don’t hold up I could definitely see Denver Harris starting at corner by then end of the year. Jacoby Mathews and Bryce Anderson could also see time in the defensive backfield.

QB - I think Connor Weigman redshirts this year, but starts next year regardless of who starts this year. May get a couple snaps in mop up duty this year.

OL - None
RB - None
LB - None

So we’re thinking Max starts? What’s the consensus on the OL? If Max has no pressure in his face he can look like a budget Trevor Lawrence

O line should be much better this year. Going into 2021 we had 4 new starters on the o line and it took them most of the season to settle in. This year we return 3 experienced guys and have a deeper pool of talent to draw from overall to fill the 2 open spots. May still take them a game or two to gel, but I don't expect the same growing pains we saw last year breaking in 4 new guys at once.

I think Max is the safest option. King has more athleticism (he can fly) but I question his decision making and downfield accuracy.

LT - Zuhn (only 4 games experience)
LG - Spasojevic-Moko (inexperienced but talented)
C - Bryce Foster (great)
RG - Layden Robinson (great)
RT - Rueben Fatheree (great)

I think our run game will be good but pass blocking and picking up blitzes will be more difficult with that more experienced left side of the OL. At least at first.

I’m personally hoping Haynes starts. Run threat, quicker release. Probably a lower floor, but I’ll take the upside possibility. They’re currently alternating days with the 1s.

I'm hoping King pulls it out. The extra speed out of the backfield would be great for keeping opposing defenses honest. And in what little we saw of him last year he was not afraid to take some risks and sling it around the field. We have too many playmakers on the field for a QB to take the safe option for tiny gains 90+% of the time like Calzada did. I'm confident that our defense can bail us out of a couple turnovers a game. I'm sick of seeing our offense stall over and over again because the QB won't take risks.

That's a good summation. Even though he's supposed to be a high school senior, LT Overton has a chance to play, too, I think. The dude is legit. And Enai White is probably too light, but he's making waves, too.

DB: Denver Harris, Smoke Bouie, Jacoby Matthews, and Bryce Anderson all have a chance to force themselves on the field, but DB is deep.

(And Noah Thomas is going to be a star before he's done. It's unreal how he can break with that amazing length.)

Evan Stewart and Harris at the top.

Embarrassment of riches at DL. Many will rotate in and will be ready to rock even late in games bc of the rotation.

Honestly that 2022 class was so loaded I forgot about a 5* DL and all of the DB’s. I edited. I think Denver Harris has the best shot to start at corner by the end of the season (for DB’s).

What is amazing about that class is that the early returns seem to be indicating that we had hits on the top and bottom of the class. Nabou and Thomas and ever Kerr, despite being at the bottom of the class, are turning heads.

That's your offensive scheme, not the quarterback.

It's why Mond did the same thing.

He wasn't even very good at that. He was constantly throwing it way too damn hard for the checkdown receiver to have a chance to catch it and turn up and his happy feet caused him to not even see a lot of guys who were open.
