UCF sophomore RB Cordarrian Richardson transferred to Texas A&M.

The 6-foot, 248-pounder is only one year and 41 carries into his college career, but he's already generated a ton of news. A longtime Clemson commit, Richardson appeared set to audible to Ole Miss on Signing Day last year before committing to Maryland via the ostentatious display of a weather balloon in outer space. Shockingly, he signed with UCF -- not the Terps -- the next day. Now, Richardson is headed west to join Jimbo Fisher's first roster. He must sit out the 2018 season to satisfy transfer rules. The former four-star recruit will have three years of eligibility remaining starting in 2019.

ESPN Football Analyst Mel Kiper Jr. projects the Falcons to take Texas A&M WR Christian Kirk with the 26th pick in his latest mock draft.

This would be a fun one. As Kiper notes, the Falcons already have an elite top option in Julio Jones, so Kirk could be the "other" option that won't be double-teamed because, well, Julio. He's also a quality punt-returner who has shown the ability to be effective in the slot. After falling from 34 points a game in 2016 to 22 in 2017, the Falcons need to add some punch to the offense. Kirk could be that punch if he "falls" to this pick.

Texas A&M has hired former Minnesota DB coach Maurice Linguist as an assistant coach.

Lingquist's role is not yet determined. He's from Texas, and played college football for Baylor. It's safe to say he'll be working with the Aggies' defensive backs in this job, too.

Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman reports that Arizona will hire Texas A&M OC Noel Mazzone to serve in the same capacity.

It looked late last week like Mazzone might be joining Texas' staff as an offensive quality control coach, but the winds shifted with Arizona hiring former Aggies HC Kevin Sumlin over the weekend. Mazzone has been working as Texas A&M offensive coordinator each of the last two seasons, making him immediately familiar with Sumlin -- their relationship actually goes back to the early 90's, when they both coached at Minnesota. Expect him to bring a similar up-tempo spread attack to Arizona as the kind he was running with Texas A&M. Just how he and Sumlin will mold the offense to fit the sensational Khalil Tate remains to be seen, but both coaches have experience working with dual-threat quarterbacks.

Football Scoop reports that former Texas A&M OC Noel Mazzone could join the Texas staff for the 2018 season.

Bruce Feldman, however, reports that any talk of him joining the staff at this time is "premature." Mazzone was not retained by Texas A&M after Jimbo Fisher moved over to Texas A&M. It sounds like the offer is there for him to join the Longhorns, but that the 60-year-old coach could be waiting for other offers -- possibly a coordinator job -- before joining Texas.

Texas A&M signed four-star 2018 G Barton Clement.

Clement (6'3/304) is rated the 18th best guard by ESPN, and had offers from schools like Auburn, Michigan, Oklahoma and many others. His scouting report entails that Clement is powerfully built and has surprising speed, but will need to work on his hand placement and staying at pad level.

Ole Miss linebackers/special teams coach Bradley Dale Peveto will join the Texas A&M staff, reports Football Scoop.

Peveto spent one year with the Rebels, coming over from LSU after spending time with the Tigers in the same capacity. It's unknown what Dale Peveto's role will be at this time, but considering the Aggies just lost two special teams coaches, it's probably safe to assume he'll have a role in that capacity as well.

Texas A&M officially hired Tim Brewster as the new TE coach.

Brewster has been working with the Aggies for weeks according to Football Scoop, but his title of TE coach is now official. He worked with Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher from 2013-2017 in the same role, and prior to that served as head coach at Minnesota from 2007-2010. He's viewed as one of the better position coaches in the country, and is also well-regarded as a recruiter.

Green Bay Packers DL Jerry Montgomery is joining the staff at Texas A&M.

It's not yet known what Montgomery's role will be with the Aggies, but it's safe to say that he'll be involved with the defense, and likely the defensive line. Prior to joining the Packers, he worked with Michigan and Oklahoma.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Texas A&M has hired Notre Dame DC Mike Elko to serve in the same capacity.

Texas A&M has been pining after LSU DC Dave Aranda as their replacement for Charles Kelly, who is off to Tennessee, but Aranda was taken off the board on Wednesday night when he signed a new four-year deal to remain with the Tigers. The Aggies then turned their attention to Elko with successful result. This hire does not come as a surprise, as Notre Dame HC Brian Kelly alluded to interest from Texas A&M in regards to Elko near the end of December. The Irish held their first eight opponents of the 2017 season to fewer than 20 points. It's a strong, strong hire for Aggies HC Jimbo Fisher and one of the more positive developments we've seen from the program since Fisher came on. Elko helped guide Wake Forest to rank as the No. 20 scoring defense in the country -- with no four- or five-star talent on roster -- in 2016 and was key to turning around what had been a mediocre Notre Dame defense after coming over to South Bend last winter.

Texas A&M junior WR Christian Kirk will forego his final season of eligibility to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Kirk (5'11/200) finished up his Aggies career with a bang, catching 13 passes for 189 yards and three touchdowns in a Belk Bowl loss to Wake Forest at the end of December. He ended the campaign the owner of a 71-919-10 receiving line and also turned in touchdowns as both a punt and kick returner. While Kirk's numbers were relatively modest this year, that can be pinned on Texas A&M playing most of the season with raw dual-threat QB Kellen Mond. As a draft prospect, NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah comps Kirk to Lions WR Golden Tate. Make that Tate "maybe with a little bit of a turbo jet strapped to his back." DJ's colleague, Bucky Brooks, sees some Julian Edelman in the junior's game. A Day 1 selection is not outside the realm of possibility for Kirk.
Jan 2 - 1:48 PM

Texas A&M senior S Donovan Wilson tweeted that he will be returning to school for the 2018 season, presumably because he has received a medical redshirt for the current campaign.

Wilson (6'1/205) sustained a season-ending foot injury during the team's season-opening loss to UCLA. He subsequently underwent surgery on that foot. He put in 55-plus tackles in each of the previous two campaigns. Wilson was expected to take on a large role this season with Justin Wilson off to the NFL. While that did not ultimately play out, he should have a starting role with the team next year unless he's either limited during the offseason or supplanted by younger talent.
Jan 1 - 7:33 PM

Texas A&M junior DT Kingsley Keke will return to school for the 2018 season.

Keke (6'3/319) was kicking around a draft jump, but instead, he'll spend his final season trying to help HC Jimbo Fisher make a dent in his inaugural year down in College Station. This season, the junior defensive tackle posted 54 tackles. He saved his best for last, wrecking Wake Forest with nine stops during the Aggies' loss in the Belk Bowl to close out the year.
Jan 1 - 7:01 PM

Texas A&M freshman WR Jhamon Ausbon finished with 12 receptions, 112 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 55-52 loss against Wake Forest in the Belk Bowl.

Ausbon's 12 receptions would have been a new Belk Bowl record, but teammate Christian Kirk stole his glory with 13 grabs. There will be plenty of time for records and accolades for Ausbon, especially with senior Damion Ratley gone and Kirk perhaps following him out the door for the NFL Draft. Ausbon could be the next great A&M wide receiver, following Kirk, Mike Evans, etc.

Texas A&M sophomore RB Trayveon Williams rushed seven times for 65 yards and a touchdown in the Belk Bowl on Friday against Wake Forest.

Williams had a two-yard touchdown in the first quarter, as the Aggies built a 14-0 lead, but the highlight of his day might have been a 43-yard gallop later in the game. He is a shifty back who will pair with the hammer Keith Ford to give incoming Jimbo Fisher quite the one-two punch in the backfield heading into 2018.
