COLLEGE STATION — On a clear afternoon inside the walls at Kyle Field, Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher has a better look at the future of his program. Some parts look as bright as the blue sky that hovered above the stadium. Others were as rocky as the balls being tossed in the 30 MPH winds.
The Aggies concluded spring practice with the annual Maroon and White game. Fisher said following the Maroon team’s 30-24 victory that he’ll have to go back at look at the film before evaluating the team’s outlook entering summer practice.
For now, there are several early impressions that will draw attention until the Aggies return to the field in June. Here are AllAggies.com’s top 10 takeaways from Saturday’s action.
The decision on who will take over for Zach Calzada isn’t going to be decided after Saturday. It shouldn’t either despite the overall performance from King, who might be taking a slight lead moving forward.
King, who initially was named the starter last season, has all the tools to be one of the best passers in college football. His arm strength is second to none. His legs give him the ability to be a threat on the ground rushing.
There’s still an issue he’ll have to correct before the start of next season: turnovers.
In the season opener against Kent State, King threw three interceptions. On Saturday, he threw two more. The first was thrown into double coverage. The second was overthrown, falling right into the hands of defensive back Avery Hughes.
