Texas A&M redshirt senior LB Otaro Alaka accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.
Alaka (6'3/240) increased his solo tackles and tackles for loss in three straight seasons leading to a trip to Mobile, Alabama. The redshirt senior has appeared in 53 games for the Aggies after signing with the program as a four-star recruit. The Draft Network's Jon Ledyard believes Alaka's worst trait is his coverage skills, and Ledyard expects him to be a two-down player in the NFL. Hopefully Alaka can show some pass rushing ability at the Senior Bowl. Jan 7 - 11:37 AM

Texas A&M redshirt senior LB Otaro Alaka (hand) has been ruled out for Monday's Gator Bowl.

Alaka (6'3/240) underwent hand surgery at the end of the regular season after logging 79 tackles (14.5 for loss), four sacks and a forced fumble over the course of 12 games played. The redshirt senior linebacker leads the team in tackles for loss. Filling in for him against NC State on Monday will be Buddy Johnson. While Johnson does not offer the same level of experience as Alaka, he has appeared in 11 of 12 games this season and won't be completely green heading into this matchup.

Texas A&M sophomore LB Otaro Alaka will miss the remainder of the season due to a torn labrum that will require surgery.

"It’s been a tough time for him," head coach Kevin Sumlin said. "He dislocated an elbow in fall camp, had a serious illness in the family, came back and… had a torn labrum, about three quarters of it." The four-star member of A&M’s 2014 recruiting class earned defensive MVP honors in the Liberty Bowl win over West Virginia. The Aggies are going to go after a medical waiver. Typically one isn't granted for an injury that occurred this late in the season, but Alaka only appeared in three games so it's theoretically possible.
