Texas A&M Aggies Football: 3 Second-Year Players Poised for Stardom in 2023

Jimbo Fisher may be coming off a 5-7 season with Texas A&M football and attempting to stay out of the firing line this offseason, but he has a wealth of talent at his disposal.


The Aggies brought in one of the top recruiting classes in school history in 2022, and those players will have a chance to revive the program.


Which trio of those highly anticipated 2022 recruits will have the largest effects on the club and emerge as stars in 2023?

#3. Le'Veon Moss, Running Back

Le'Veon Moss is a popular running back among Aggies supporters, and now that Devon Achane is no longer on the team, he has a chance to shine.

Although Moss was the third option in the backfield last season, Amari Daniels is set to take over as the starter. Moss finished with 114 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries. Due to LJ Johnson's departure, Moss now has a wider window of opportunity to succeed as the RB1 or RB2.

#2. Shemar Stewart, Defensive Line

Shemar Stewart joins a long list of productive defensive line additions for the Aggies over the past couple of years.

Stewart participated in all 12 games as a true freshman and finished with a respectable 23 total tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, and 1.5 sacks. He was reliable in his first season with the Aggies, but I believe he's about to burst onto the College Station scene as a true superstar.

I wouldn't be surprised in the least if Stewart passed the senior and seized the lead position. There's a reason Stewart, a five-star recruit and the No. 9 overall prospect in the 2022 class, was given such high ratings right out of high school.

#1. Conner Weigman, Quarterback

Conner Weigman is without a doubt the most gifted quarterback on the Texas A&M squad, and he was in 2022 as well. This isn't even a hot take at this point.

Max Johnson simply never seemed like the quarterback of the future, while Haynes King received the starting nod to begin the season but later went to Georgia Tech. Weigman finished with 896 yards and eight touchdowns in what was the greatest season of the three Aggie quarterbacks. Even though his accuracy was only 55 percent on 132 attempts as a true freshman, he didn't throw a single interception.

It's actually not surprising that Weigman had such a successful first year because he was the second-best quarterback in the 2022 class and a five-star recruit. I envision him throwing for over 3,000 yards and 20 or more touchdowns next season if he wins the position, making him one of the top young quarterbacks in the nation.
