Texas A&M football: 3 way-too-early breakout candidates for 2023
Jimbo Fisher and Texas A&M football desperately need to turn things around in 2023 if the head coach plans on keeping his job.
If the Aggies have another underwhelming season, Fisher may be on his way out, looking for a new job. He has too much talent on the roster, thanks to the best recruiting class of all time last year, to have another bowl-less season.
If Texas A&M is going to turn things around, these guys need to have breakout seasons.
Texas A&M is going to be relying on a new backfield next season with Devon Achane moving on. The Aggies have to find a running back to replace 1,102 yards and eight touchdowns on 5.6 yards per carry and I think Amari Daniels could be that workhorse.
The junior running back played in six games last season and finished second on the team in rushing with 200 yards on 5.6 yards per touch.
While he didn’t quite have the same workload as Achane, he was the most capable runner behind the 1,000-yard rusher. He was the only running back on the team to average more than 5.0 yards per game who’s coming back this year.
There may be a debate about who will be replace Achane between Daniels, Le’Veon Moss, and five-star freshman Rueben Owens but I think the safe and smart choice would be the junior.
Daniels will have a big season.
