Texas A&M DT Shemar Turner officially announces his return for the 2024 season

On Monday, it was reported by multiple outlets that star Texas A&M defensive end/defensive tackle Shemar Turner was slated to return for a final season in College Station after a career-high 2023 junior campaign.

As we say in the journalism game, nothing is official until it’s truly official. Still, on Wednesday night, Turner followed the rest of his fellow Aggie teammates’ announcements while partnering with A&M’s official NIL representative, Texas Aggies United, stating Gig ‘Em Ags” in a post on X.

After recording 33 tackles, 6 sacks, 10.5 tackles for loss, and 2 forced fumbles last season, Turner earned a second-team selection and finished fifth in sacks and eighth in tackles for loss.

Shemar Turner’s return to the Aggies’ defensive line is not just important due to his quality play but to make every transfer player’s transition that much smoother, having a veteran who has been through every up and down with some familiarity of Mike Elko’s defensive scheme is an absolute steal for a program looking to shock it many detractors.

Other Aggies to declare for the upcoming draft in April include Layden Robinson, Ainias Smith, Earnest Crownover III, Max Wright and Christopher Russell Jr.
