It’s that time of the year where the coaching carousel spins, and with that comes players departing. The Texas A&M Aggies fired head coach Jimbo Fisher, and now there comes the question of which players will hit the portal.
One thing’s for sure: The guys below will command plenty of attention.
Texas A&M Players Who Could Enter the Transfer Portal
Moose Muhammad, WR
Moose Muhammad, son of former Carolina Panthers receiver Muhsin Muhammad, was in Fisher’s doghouse since late in the 2022 season. Prior to that, he flashed big-play ability downfield just like his dad.
The Charlotte, North Carolina native had 31 offers coming out of high school, so there would be plenty of suitors for his services. North Carolina feels like a good fit should he put his name in the transfer portal.
Evan Stewart, WR
Evan Stewart’s production doesn’t match his value that he brings to an offense, and a future team would be getting a WR1 who can be an instant impact player. Stewart’s ability to make big plays and come down with 50/50 passes make him a vertical threat for the Aggies.
The problem is they haven’t been able to hit him consistently thanks to an outdated offense prior to this year and injuries to the quarterback position in 2023. Stewart would be one of the top targets in the portal should he enter.
Shemar Turner, DL
Shemar Turner could go pro, but returning to school would help his draft stock immensely. There will be questions he’ll need to answer regardless after this incident against Ole Miss, but the raw talent jumps out on tape.
Turner brings good size to the edge of the Aggies defense, and he’s yet to get to his ceiling. With that potential, another team would be getting a Day 1 starter and someone who will be hungry to elevate his draft stock.
Conner Weigman, QB
Conner Weigman was a part of Fisher’s 2022 recruiting class was ranked first in the country, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he would test the waters of the portal. A healthy Weigman made the Aggies offense different, but injuries knocked him out for the year. Weigman had 979 yards and 8 touchdowns before getting hurt.
Weigman should get plenty of offers in the portal with his potential. He’s a player on the rise who’s yet to hit his ceiling, and we’ve seen enough flashes of his game to know he has plenty left in the tank.
Max & Jake Johnson
A big reason why Jake Johnson signed with the Texas A&M Aggies was because his brother, Max Johnson, transferred to College Station. If Max, the backup to Weigman, decides he wants to find a new home, Jake might follow with him.
Rueben Owens, RB
Texas A&M has multiple options at running back, but it looks like Rueben Owens is the odd man out. He’s still seen plenty of touches (79), but not as many as Amari Daniels (99) and Le’Veon Moss (95). One or more of them is likely to transfer, and it feels like Owens is the top candidate.
Walter Nolan, OL
Walter Nolan’s game has taken off as of late, and he’s been a topic of conversation for the broadcast teams covering the Aggies. At 6’4″ and 290 pounds, he brings great size to the interior of the defense. He’s recorded 7.5 tackles for loss and 4.0 sacks so far this year.
Fadil Diggs, EDGE
Another Aggies defender who could go pro or transfer if he wants. Fadil Diggs is an explosive edge player who’s proven he can wreak havoc on an opposing offense. He stands 6’5″ and 260 pounds, and has 10.0 tackles for loss and 4.0 sacks this season.
