NFL Media ranks Texas A&M S Justin Evans as the No. 7 transfer player in the nation.

Texas A&M desperately needs Evans, who came from Mississippi Gulf Coast CC, to play well immediately. The school allowed 450.8 yards per game last year, ranking last in the SEC and 104th nationally in total defense. Evans enrolled in January and "was good in spring practice," according to College Football 24/7 writer Mike Huguenin. "He is a willing player in run support and looks to have above-average coverage skills for a strong safety."

Former Oklahoma junior RB Keith Ford will transfer to Texas A&M.

Ford said as much a few days ago, but now it is official. The running back, who was stuck behind Samaje Perine on the Sooners' depth chart, will be forced to redshirt the 2015 season but still has two seasons of eligibility after. Texas A&M already has an Oklahoma running back transfer on the roster in Brandon Williams.

In an interview with GigEm247.com on Tuesday, Oklahoma junior RB Keith Ford noted that he is "leaning towards" transferring to Texas A&M.

"Utah has called me, Louisville is showing a lot of interest and so has U of H. Texas A&M has also reached out to me. I don’t want to leave the state of Texas so I’m kind of leaning towards Texas A&M. It’s not official yet because I still need to talk with the coaches but I am leaning towards Texas A&M," Ford told GigEm247.com The 5-foot-11, 211-pound Ford would have to sit out a year if he planned to transfer, but would have two years of eligibility left. The former sooner is planning to make his decision before June. Ford ran for 369 yards and five touchdowns on 63 carries as a sophomore, and added in 11 receptions for 140 yards and a score.

Texas A&M sophomore DE Myles Garrett will have to show that he can "hold his own better against the power-rushing SEC teams" that proved to be able to negate "his quickness with brute strength," according to NFL.com's Chase Goodbread.

"The next step in Garrett's game will be to hold his own better against the power-rushing SEC teams (read: Alabama, LSU, Arkansas) that negated his quickness with brute strength. If Chavis develops that part of his game, Garrett's immediate future is limitless," Goodbread wrote. The Texas A & M prospect broke Jadeveon Clowney's league record for sacks as a freshman with 11.5. The 6-foot-5, 247-pound showed a ton of explosiveness off the ball last season and has even been clocked at mid-4.4s in the 40 this offseason.

Oklahoma junior RB Keith Ford will transfer, according to Josh McCuistion.

Oklahoma handed down a suspension for Ford on March 30 for academic and team rules violations. The running back started three games and totaled 369 yards and five touchdowns in eight games, but was expected to enter the season behind Samaje Parine on the depth chart. Ford will almost certainly have to sit out a season due to NCAA regulations.

Texas A&M HC Kevin Sumlin said he was never concerned that freshman QB Kyler Murray would spurn the Aggies for baseball.

Murray opted out of the MLB draft earlier this month even though he was ranked by some analysts as a top-30 prospect. Instead of reporting to a minor league camp, Murray decided to play football and baseball for the Aggies. The 5-foot-11, 180-pounder is a five-star football recruit who attended Elite 11 at Nike's headquarters. He's highly athletic and has a whip for an arm and has been called "The Next Johnny Football" for the past few years in high school. Murray will take on the promising Kyle Allen for the starting gig this summer.

Texas A&M added JUCO QB Jake Hubenak to their 2015 class.

We believe Hubenak has one season of eligibility remaining after starting off at Georgetown and transferring to Blinn College, with a walk on stint at Oklahoma State in between. Kyle Allen is still expected to start, and the addition of another quarterback could give Kyler Murray a redshirt season, something Johnny Manziel took his first year with the Aggies.

Texas A&M sophomore WR Speedy Noil has missed spring activities due to off-field reasons.

"Speedy has some things he’s got to complete," Kevin Sumlin said, adding it has nothing to do with medical issues. We are guessing the absence is academic related. After plenty of buzz last offseason, Noil finished his freshman campaign as the Aggies' No. 3 receiver from a production standpoint.

Texas A&M freshman WR Christian Kirk "has been a revelation" since arriving for spring practices, according to Jeff Tarpley.

"He carries himself like an upperclassman and physically he looks like one too," Tarpley writes. "He’s impressed everyone around the program with his work ethic and attention to detail." Kirk has mainly been working in the slot and reportedly possesses great quickness to separate from defensive backs and linebackers. This time last year, Speedy Noil was receiving plenty of buzz. However, with Noil missing time, Kirk could be a focal point in the underneath and intermediate areas.

An SEC offensive coordinator gushed about how good a prospect Texas A&M freshman QB Kyle Allen is to ESPN's Travis Haney.

The five-star recruit lost out on Day 1 starting duties to Kenny Hill, but surpassed him a few months later. He was up and down, but had a sensational end to the season, completing 22-of-35 passes for 294 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in a Liberty Bowl victory over West Virginia. "With the comfort and confidence netted late the past fall, and with depth at running back and receiver, it is Allen’s time to shine," Haney wrote.
May 6 - 9:22 PM

Texas A&M freshman QB Kyler Murray has opted out of the MLB draft and will play football and baseball for the Aggies instead of pursuing professional baseball out of high school.

This means Murray will be able to join the Aggies in the first summer session and compete for the starting job, which is currently being held by Kyle Allen. Murray was one of the nation's top recruits and chose Texas A&M over Texas and other programs.
May 6 - 12:15 PM

Redskins signed Texas A&M RB Trey Williams.

The 5-foot-8, 195-pound Williams played three seasons for Texas A&M, while rushing for 1343 yards and 18 TDs, averaging 6.6 yards per carry. Williams was an effective pass catcher out of the backfield, recording 38 catches for 330 yards and a TD. The Texas A & M prospect Williams also contributed on special teams, as he has excelled as a kick returner, averaging 24.1 yards per return, with 70 returns for 1684 yards on his resume.
May 5 - 3:03 PM

Saints signed Texas A&M WR Malcome Kennedy.

Kennedy (5'11/207) was a two-year starter for the Aggies, collecting 150 career catches for 1,694 yards (11.3 YPR) and 15 touchdowns. He ran 4.62 at the TAMU Pro Day, managing a 31 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-11 broad jump. On the small side and not a particularly explosive athlete, Kennedy's NFL outlook is grim. He also lacks experience on returns.
May 4 - 11:13 PM

The Texans will give Texas A&M RB Trey Williams a tryout at their upcoming minicamp.

Williams (5'8/195) spent three seasons in College Station, finishing his career with 1,343 yards and 18 TDs on 204 carries (6.58 YPC), adding 38 receptions. He returned kickoffs for the Aggies and had a 75-yard return against Alabama in 2014. Williams ran 4.49 in Indy, also shining in the three-cone drill and short shuttle. An elusive scatback with all-purpose tools, Williams can cut on a dime and make an impact on special teams.
May 4 - 9:53 PM

Bengals signed Texas A&M S Floyd Raven.

Raven (6'0/202) was a reserve safety and cornerback in four years at College Station, primarily shining on special teams. He flashed the potential to do more at the TAMU Pro Day, running 4.49 with a 10-foot-4 broad jump and pumping 17 reps on the bench. Although Raven had a largely nondescript college career, his speed-athleticism combo makes him an intriguing project as a potential NFL free safety. He'll start out on kickoff and punt coverage.
