We all know how unbelievable the Aggies 2022 recruiting class was, and how high the expectations are for what that class will bring to College Station over the next few years.
The depth on the A&M roster means that many of the true freshmen will have the benefit of coming along slowly, building up to major roles in 2022 and beyond.
But on Monday, Bleacher Report listed 12 Freshmen who are ready for key roles in 2022, and the highest ranked member of the Aggies 2022 class, Walter Nolen was included.
Headlining that group is the nation’s second-ranked player, Tennessee defensive tackle Walter Nolen, who spurned overtures from across the nation to be part of the historic class. While he was never quite able to unlock his massive potential at the high school level, it’s just a matter of time before he lives up to those massive expectations…. You don’t sign a guy like Nolen to watch, so he will have every opportunity to be in the rotation right away, and it will not take him long to seize the job and be one of the top young D-line talents in the SEC.
The Aggies defensive line is incredibly deep, and full of very high level players, so Nolen will have quite a bit of work to get to the top of the depth chart, but if he gets an opportunity, it will be tough to take him back off the field.
