Around Aggieland (8/27)

August 27, 2021

During Friday's edition of TexAgs Radio, the fishbowl's own Richard Zane joined to share updates from the latest in Aggie Athletics as there is plenty to run down the football field to the pitch to the volleyball court and beyond.

On Monday, four Aggies were named to the Associated Press’ preseason All-American teams.

  • Offensive lineman Kenyon Green and defensive lineman DeMarvin Leal were named first-team All-Americans.
  • Running back Isaiah Spiller and tight end Jalen Wydermyer were named second-team All-Americans.

On Tuesday, nine Aggies were named to Preseason Coaches’ All-Southeastern Conference teams.

  • Spiller, Wydermyer and Green were named first-teamers.
  • Leal and Ainias Smith (return specialist) were second-team selections.
  • Jayden Peevy, Leon O’Neal and Smith (wide receiver and all-purpose player) were named third-team selections.

Wednesday morning, Jimbo Fisher named second-year freshman Haynes King the starting quarterback for Texas A&M’s season-opener against Kent State.

  • Third-year sophomore Zach Calzada will serve as the backup.

On Friday, it was announced that sixth-year senior defensive end Micheal Clemons has been suspended indefinitely.

  • The suspension stems from an arrest in Brazos County on Thursday.
