COVID rule gives Fuller one last season of college ball

Under normal circumstances, Travon Fuller’s college career would be over. After redshirting in 2017, he played four seasons in Aggieland, primarily on special teams, and he would now be moving onto the “real world” as a college graduate. But with the NCAA ruling that the 2020 season will not count against players’ eligibility, Fuller has one more year remaining, and he’ll apparently do that somewhere new as a graduate transfer.

Fuller was unlikely to see significant playing time in the A&M secondary in 2021, so it’s good to see him move on and find a program where he can take full advantage of his final year of eligibility. And because he is a graduate transfer, he can go to any program he wants, including within the SEC.

Fuller is the most recent in series of Aggie skill players to enter the transfer portal, including freshman WR Shadrach Banks, senior WR Cam Buckley and senior S Derrick Tucker. None of these players expected to have major roles this coming season, though Banks was still an unexpected transfer given that he was a 2021 signee who just enrolled at A&M in January.

Overall, both the secondary and the wide receiver units bring back their entire starting lineup from the 2020 season.
