Texas A&M DE Daeshon Hall accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Far from a helpless sidekick to all-world pass rusher Myles Garrett, Hall finished the regular season with 44 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks and a team-high 12 quarterback hurries. An AFC scout told NFL Media in October that Hall is a Day 2 prospect. "I know (Myles) Garrett is the big-name guy but Daeshon Hall is a name that is going to get hot," he said. "I didn't think he had starting potential when he was an outside 'backer. Now that he's bigger and stronger and playing with his hand down, I think he's a different player. I see him as a second-day (Rounds 2-3) guy." NFL Media's Lance Zierlein has the following take: "Hall isn't as strong at the point of attack as guys like Arik Armstead and DeForest Buckner were when they came out, but his ability to rush the passer has teams excited."

ESPN's Craig Haubert noted that Texas A&M four-star 2017 verbal LB commit Anthony Hines possesses "all the traits you look for in a linebacker prospect."

Hines committed to the Aggies at the beginning of December. Haubert writes that the 6-foot-3, 230-pounder could play either inside or outside linebacker depending on how Texas A&M would like to utilize him, writing that he has the requisite size, smarts and athleticism to fit either position. Hines ranks as ESPN 300's No. 1 linebacker in the 2017 class and their No. 84 overall prospect.

Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett said that he will not make a decision on the 2017 NFL Draft until after the Texas Bowl.

Texas A&M will be tangoing with Kansas State in the Texas Bowl on December 28, after which Garrett will make his final decision. The 6-foot-5, 260-pound junior told ESPN that the deciding criteria, here, is heavily dependent on his potential landing spot in the draft, saying, "I want to go top three." In a 2016 campaign that has been marred somewhat by ankle woes (he missed three games), Garrett recorded 32 tackles (15.0 for loss), 8.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.

Texas A&M received a verbal commitment from 2017 four-star LB Anthony Hines.

During his senior season at Plano East High (Texas), Hines was a flat-out terror of a tackling machine. He recorded an almost unbelievable 245 tackles (38.0 for loss) in 11 games. This was the 6-foot-3, 230-pounder's second campaign with at least 200 tackles. Rivals editor Mark Passwaters notes that Hines possesses "remarkable physical tools and intelligence to match." Passwaters' outlet ranks him as the No. 231 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle, No. 9 at linebacker.

Texas A&M S Justin Evans accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

An NFL executive told NFL Media way back in September that Evans would go in the top-20 in the 2017 NFL Draft. "This kid jumps off the tape. He's a better player than (2016 first-round pick) Karl Joseph. He's a ferocious hitter and he can cover a lot of ground. He will be a top-20 pick this spring," the executive said. Evans has 85 tackles, five TFL and four interceptions this season.

Texas A&M sophomore WR Christian Kirk caught eight passes for 107 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 54-39 loss to LSU.

Kirk's 43 yard catch and run might be ruled a lateral, since he caught the swing pass behind or parallel to the quarterbacks, then outran the entire defense along the sideline. We all know Kirk is one of the most explosive players in college football, and he showcased that skill on both of his touchdowns.

Texas A&M offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone told the media on Monday that junior QB Jake Hubenak played with a shoulder injury against UTSA on Saturday.

Per Mazzone, the first pass Hubenak threw all last week was during warmups. "Maybe I shouldn't be telling you guys this but I think it's a tribute to the kid and how tough he was — and a real Aggie," Mazzone said. "Believe me, it wasn't easy for him to throw that ball downfield sometimes, so my hat's off to Jake." If Hubenak (58-of-97 for 811 yards and six touchdowns) can't go against LSU on Thursday, it'll be senior Conner McQueen or true freshman Nick Starkel.
Nov 23 - 6:08 PM

Texas A&M redshirt senior QB Trevor Knight (shoulder) believes he is progressing toward potentially playing against LSU on Thursday.

"It's the competitor in me; I feel like I can go out there and play. But is [the injured shoulder] structurally ready? I don't know yet," Knight said. While the 6-foot-1, 202-pound redshirt senior hopes that he will be able to play on Thanksgiving -- he relayed that he is "progressing really well" -- Knight has not yet received medical clearance for Thursday's contest against the Tigers. He initially suffered what was believed to be a season-ending shoulder injury against Mississippi State on November 5. Jake Hubenak will draw the start on Thursday should Knight need more time to heal up, but at the very least, the Aggies slinger looks like he is progressing toward playing in Texas A&M's yet-to-be-determined bowl bid.
Nov 22 - 12:19 PM

Texas A&M senior WR Josh Reynolds caught seven passes for 93 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 23-10 win over UTSA.

Reynolds opened the game's scoring with a 16-yard touchdown grab early in the first quarter. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound wideout has just one 100-yard receiving effort on the year, but he has been a consistent performer overall, surpassing 70 yards in seven of 11 games. He is up to nine touchdown catches with one game remaining on the schedule.
Nov 19 - 3:22 PM

Texas A&M freshman RB Trayveon Williams rushed for 80 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries in Saturday's 23-10 win over UTSA.

This was Williams' best rushing effort since he ripped Tennessee for 217 yards on October 8. Entering Saturday's action, three of his four games since that contest had seen him rush for fewer than 50 yards. The bulk of his damage against UTSA came on a 47-yard touchdown run with 8:31 remaining in the third quarter. For the season as a whole, Williams has now rushed for 956 yards and seven touchdowns through 11 games. He will try to top 1,000 yards in the regular season finale against LSU -- on Thanksgiving no less.
Nov 19 - 3:18 PM

Texas A&M redshirt junior CB Noel Ellis will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery on an upper leg muscle.

Ellis is not a starter, but he has come off the bench over the last two years to make an impact. The Aggies lost last weekend after earning a top four ranking in the College Football Playoff. Ellis had surgery last Thursday.
Nov 9 - 9:08 AM

Texas A&M junior QB Jake Hubenak is expected to start for the remainder of the 2016 regular season.

Hubenak will step up to take the place of Trevor Knight, who has been ruled out for the remainder of the regular season due to a shoulder injury. The 6-foot-3, 195-pound junior has one collegiate start under his belt to date. It came in the Franklin American Morgage Music City Bowl last December. This was after both Kyle Allen and Kyler Murray opted for transfers. In the 27-21 defeat, Hubenak threw for 307 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Assuming he does, indeed, start through to the end of the season, he will face Texas A&M, Vanderbilt and Mississippi State.

Texas A&M redshirt senior QB Trevor Knight will miss the remainder of the 2016 regular season due to a shoulder injury.

This time a week ago, the Aggies were riding high, cresting into the initial Playoff rankings at No. 4. The good times lasted three days before A&M was rudely knocked from its reverie by Mississippi State on Saturday, falling by a 35-28 final. Knight suffered his season-ending injury in the first half of that contest. HC Kevin Sumlin indicated that the 6-foot-1, 202-pound Oklahoma transfer could potentially return for bowl action, though that is far from a given. Jake Hubenak is expected to start Texas A&M's final three regular season games, against Ole Miss, UTSA and LSU. This injury effectively ends Knight's collegiate career, though we shall see if he is able to make a final bowl cameo.
Nov 8 - 2:05 PM

Texas A&M HC Kevin Sumlin would not place an immediate timetable on the return of redshirt senior QB Trevor Knight (shoulder).

"We'll evaluate him and see where he is," Sumlin offered after Saturday's upset loss at the hands of Mississippi State. In that contest, Knight was forced out after sustaining an injury to his right shoulder on a 19-yard touchdown dash in the first quarter. While he did return to the game for a short time, he was pulled for good after falling once more on that shoulder in the second quarter. Should Knight be unable to play in next Saturday's game against Ole Miss, Jake Hubenak would draw the start. Further updates as to Knight's playing status for that date with the Rebs should filter in over the course of the practice week.

Nov 6 - 9:50 AM

Texas A&M sophomore WR Christian Kirk caught seven passes for 144 yards and a touchdown in the school's 35-28 loss to Mississippi State.

Kirk added a 93 yard punt return touchdown just before half, giving the Aggies hope heading into the locker room. He is dynamite anytime he touches the football, and Kirk will enter the 2017 season as one of the top playmakers in the country. He has a touchdown in four straight games.
