No, lack of breakaway speed at the high school level equals a possession receiver at the college level. He benefited a lot from playing on the same field as Thomas Johnson.
Your quote is that he "WAS" a good possession receiver, not that his abilities translate to possession receiver in college. Possession receivers generally get first downs, not touchdowns. They generally average less than 12 yards per catch, not more than 20.

If your quote, "He was a pretty good possession receiver" is referring to his college potential, then I think that everybody would be glad to have a pretty good possession receiver on their college team.

Why are there so many aggy posters on orangepower? I was fine with it when we had 1(fig), but lately they seem to me multiplying and reproducing at an alarming rate.

Insecurity after losing 4 years in a row to a program that has obviously passed them.

Sorry, but we didn't run away from anything. We simply moved to another conference. texas is the one who refuses to play us in any sport. If anyone is running away from competition, it is texas.

A&M won more conference and national championships its last five years in the Big 12 than any other conference school. This idea that we were leaving because we somehow couldn't compete is laughable.
Really?

I didn't look up National Titles (but you should say thank you to your outdoor track program), but I did confernce titles.

And I'll admit they may not be accurate because of my source, but you can correct me, right?

He stated last five years and football was 1998 and it was definitely an upset. Many Aggies skew things to make themselves feel better. It is an Aggie pride thing I believe. Being in the Big 12 has elevated many of the sports for ATM just not football. Not competing within their own region moving forward will reverse that trend. The best part is UT telling ATM they would never play them again if they left and after leaving ATM is acting like UT is the one that is afraid. UT is just following through on a promise which is provides irony.

Aggies always have and always will think their school is better than it is. Especially in Academics. It's the 5th best school in the state and they act like it is the best.
