Texas A&M made a big move to upgrade their 2021 offensive line on Friday with the addition of JUCO OT Jordan Moko, and they got even more good news on Saturday with the commitment of Tennessee graduate transfer OT Jahmir Johnson.

Johnson battled injuries during his time in Knoxville, but started 17 games over three years for the Volunteers, including five starts at left tackle in 2020 (one of which was the game against Texas A&M). He provides much-needed experience to an A&M offensive line group that will look to replace four seniors from the 2020 squad. The rest of the group will be relatively young, with just two juniors, and Johnson as the only senior.

The offensive line was one of the few obvious weaknesses for a 2021 Aggie team that returns 9 of 11 defensive starters and a running back and receiving corps that returns everyone. With those units locked in, the success of the team next season will be largely determined by the play of it’s new starting quarterback (either Haynes King or Zach Calzada) and this new-look offensive line.
