Texas A&M true freshman DE Myles Garrett is expected to play against LSU on Thanksgiving despite sitting out the game against Missouri with an unspecified injury.

Garrett is the school's bets defensive player in just his first season, breaking the SEC record in sacks for a freshman and producing plenty of disruption. He will face off against La'El Collins, one of the top tackle prospects in this class.

Texas A&M freshman QB Kyle Allen completed 24-of-35 passes for 237 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's loss to Missouri.

Allen was also picked in the contest. The five-star recruit had been on a meteoric rise coming into the game, having just vanquished Auburn. The sledding was slightly more difficult against an actual defense. Allen showed impressive arm strength and made difficult throws in the losing effort. On one of his more impressive, he zipped the ball into the corner of the end zone for a late fourth quarter touchdown. We haven't seen anything from the freshman to indicate that the hype isn't real.

Texas A&M and head coach Kevin Sumlin moving senior Cedric Ogbuehi from LT to RT is not the first time such a position switch has occurred.

When Ogbuehi was injured last season, Sumlin moved No. 6 overall pick Jake Matthews from left tackle to right tackle. It was likely due to the same reason as the recent move: Jarvis Harrison shifting from left guard to left tackle instead of the right side due to comfort. Some, like NFL Media's Bucky Brooks, have questioned the true motive behind Ogbuehi's move, but if history is repeating itself Sumlin's reasoning is just.

NFL.com's media analyst Charles Davis noted that while Texas A&M freshman QB Kyle Allen played well against Auburn, he probably isn't assured of the starting job for the 2015 season.

Allen is a five-star recruit, so he certainly has the talent to keep the job. Top-ranked dual-threat QB recruit Kyler Murray has committed to the school and should be rolling into College Station in the spring, though, and head coach Kevin Sumlin is also probably going to check to see if there's any non-alcoholic juice left in deposed starter Kenny Hill. Davis wrote that "it's too soon to say whether Allen is the answer for Texas A&M. All indications are he gave Hill a run for his money during the fall camp competition between the two. Allen showed great promise vs. Auburn" Davis also wrote that "Hill is being challenged in a big way."

NFL Media's Bucky Brooks is not buying Texas A&M HC Kevin Sumlin's reasoning for moving senior Cedric Ogbuehi from LT to RT.

Sumlin previously stated Jarvis Harrison, formerly the left guard, felt more comfortable on the left side, so Ogbuehi basically took one for the team since he has experience at right tackle. We buy it, since the balance, base, footwork and hand placement techniques are similar along the left side. The former scout does not. "Although he is one of the most agile players that I've seen at the position, he didn't consistently display the balance and body control to handle speed rushers or power maneuvers off the edge," Brooks writes of Ogbuehi.

SI.com's Inside Read reported that Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill "often hung out socially" with former Aggies QB Johnny Manziel.

One recruiter said that the sophomore was a "spoiled brat." Hill was suspended for two games for violating team rules and was subsequently replaced by sudden wunderkind freshman Kyle Allen in late October. Inside Read wrote that on the football field, Hill has "had his struggles in three straight losses earlier this season, he is by all accounts a hard worker" and went on to write that sophomore needed to grow up "before his Johnny Football experience completely ruins him." This seems a little unfair to Manziel, given that Hill's problems have cropped up in a season where Johnny Football's sitting on an NFL bench.

Texas A&M HC Kevin Sumlin called senior Cedric Ogbuehi a "team guy" for accepting his move from LT to RT since Jarvis Harrison feels more comfortable on the left side.

"Jarvis is more comfortable over there... There is prestige at left tackle, but Jarvis has a better set over there," Sumlin said. "He works better with his post foot on the right side. So as a team, as an offense, we've made that switch to make our line the strongest it can be." Many like to diminish the value of right tackles compared to left tackles, but we believe there are quality rushers on both sides. Even if Ogbuehi plays on the right side in the NFL, that should not mean his value is less.

Texas A&M HC Kevin Sumlin said that freshman QB Kyle Allen will start over Kenny Hill on Saturday.

This shouldn't come as a surprise to anybody, as the freshman gunslinger looked great in helping to lead the upset over then-No. 3 Auburn. Allen completed 19-of-27 passes for 277 yards and four touchdowns against the Tigers. The performance earned Allen a Walter Camp Offensive Player of the Week honor. Former starter Kenny Hill had been serving a two-game suspension for violating team rules. Hill will be available to play if necessary.

The Sideline View's Lance Zierlein reports that he "spoke to a regional scout" who has graded Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi as a "fourth-round prospect."

"Spoke with a regional scout who said he has 4th round grade on Ced Ogbuehi based on this year’s play. 'You could argue that’s too high.' Yikes," Zierlein tweeted. The 6-foot-5, 304-pound senior has been ranked as the No. 1 offensive tackle by Rotoworld's Josh Norris and many other analysts. Zierlein added in another tweet that Ogbuehi has "allowed 5.5 sacks and 8 QB knockdowns" and "hasn’t been anywhere near the same," and "might have to just stay on right side." Zierlein notes that he can "promise" that he's not going to be giving the Texas A&M prospect "a grade that low."

NFL.com's Bucky Brooks wrote that Texas A&M freshman QB Kyle Allen "set the tone" with his efficiency from the pocket in Saturday's win over Auburn.

"Allen was sensational from the start," said Brooks. The freshman threw all four of his touchdowns in the first-half against the Tigers and ultimately completed 19-of-27 passes for 277 yards. "While some doubted whether Allen was ready to play in a big game after his dismal performance in his collegiate debut against Louisiana-Monroe, he proved he was up for the challenge, and more." Allen was a five-star recruit out of high school and it will be interesting to see how he responds to what is certain to be a flood of publicity over the next week.

Texas A&M freshman quarterback Kyle Allen was named the Walter Camp National Offense Player of the Week for his performance in Saturday's 41-38 win over Auburn.

Against Auburn, the 6-foot-4, 195-pound Allen threw for 277 yards and four touchdowns in the Aggies upset win against the Tigers. Allen made an improvement over his previous outing against Louisiana-Monroe, where he was 13-of-28 for 106 yards, with one touchdown and one interception. The Aggies prospect was a five-star recruit out of high school and his performance against the Tigers is indicative of the freshman's arm-talent.

Texas A&M freshman quarterback Kyle Allen completed 19-of-29 passes for 277 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 41-38 win over Auburn.

The start was a considerable improvement on Allen's first outing. When replacing deposed starter Kenny Hill against Louisiana-Monroe last week, Allen threw for just 106 yards and one touchdown. Against Auburn, he had already eclipsed that line by halftime, as he tossed all four of his touchdowns in the first two frames. Allen was a five-star recruit out of high school and his performance against Auburn is indicative of the freshman's arm-talent.
Nov 8 - 8:06 PM

NFL.com's Bucky Brooks wrote that "there is some intrigue [among scouts] about why [Texas A&M] moved" senior T Cedric Ogbuehi from the left side to the right of the offensive line.

"That's an uncommon move to go from the blind side, the premiere position, to right tackle." Ostensibly, the Aggies moved Ogbuehi to RT to deal with the season-ending injury to Germain Ifedi, but Brooks wondered if there were secondary reasons for the switch. "Does [the move] foreshadow a bigger issue?" The 6-foot-5, 304-pound senior is ranked as the No. 1 offensive tackle by Rotoworld's Josh Norris and many other analysts have Ogbuehi ranked similarly high, so Brooks' note is one to keep an eye on moving forward.

Updating a previous item, Kate Hairopoulos cites sources close to Texas A&M sophomore Kenny Hill's family who say the QB will not be working with Sean Salisbury.

Salisbury said the opposite yesterday. "Salisbury and Ken Hill Sr., the quarterback’s father, had a recent discussion that was set up by a mutual friend... But no agreement was solidified, the source said," Hairopoulos writes. Do not expect Hill to receive outside help during his two game suspension.
Nov 7 - 12:41 PM

Former NFL QB and media member Sean Salisbury will work with Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill.

Hill's family hired Salisbury to help Hill both on and off the field. Hill has completed the first of his two game suspension, which occurred after he was benched in favor of Kyle Allen, and will be sidelined against Auburn. The sophomore was suspended in the spring after being arrested for public intoxication. Of his role, Salisbury said he will "teach him how to approach the off-the-field stuff better. And to work with him on the field. Fix his mechanics, get him going."
