Why the Aggies have a great signal-caller
The SEC might be the deepest conference for quarterbacks in 2019. One of the best in the conference this upcoming season is Texas A&M's Kellen Mond.
In fact, the signal-caller comes in at No. 3 in Athlon Sports' SEC Quarterback Rankings.
Here's why: Jimbo Fisher is one of the best quarterback gurus in college football, so it was no surprise Mond showed marked improvement last fall. After sharing the job with Nick Starkel in 2017, Mond started all 13 games for the Aggies last season and threw for 3,107 yards and 24 touchdowns. Those totals represented a significant increase from the 1,375 yards and eight passing scores in 2017. Additionally, after completing just 51.5 percent of his throws in ’17, Mond connected on 57.3 in ’18. Mond also finished second on the team by rushing for 474 yards and seven touchdowns in 2018. With one of the SEC’s top receiving corps at his disposal, along with another offseason under Fisher, Mond should earn a spot on the All-SEC team by the end of 2019.
