This is the offseason that just won’t go away for Kevin Sumlin and Texas A&M.
Three Aggies were arrested last Thursday. Defensive lineman Gavin Stansbury was arrested on an assault charge, while Howard Matthews and Ed Pope were arrested for failure to appear. Here’s a link to the College Station Police Department Significant Activity Summary.
Stansbury, Matthews and Pope are the latest in a puzzling offseason of off-field misconduct. The first casualty was safety Kameron Miles’ dismissal over a reported theft incident. Defensive lineman Isaiah Golden was arrested for pot and has since withdrawn from the school, although he is expected back by fall. Linebacker Darian Claiborne, who was arrested last December on a marijuana charge, was also arrested alongside Golden for a noise violation. Quarterback Kenny Hill was arrested for public intoxication and was passed out in a planter box. Receiver Ricky Seals-Jones was arrested for disorderly conduct, but he vowed he would fight the charges.
August cannot get here quick enough for the Aggies. The problem is whether Texas A&M will have enough players to fill a complete squad. I’m kidding…kind of.
