Texas A&M reportedly loses tight end Blake Smith to season-ending injury
Some potentially devastating news to share out of College Station on Friday as not long after it was revealed that redshirt freshman Baylor Cupp has been lost for the season due to injury, a new report claims the Aggies have just lost another tight end due to injury.
According to Mark Passwaters of Rivals, freshman tight end Blake Smith has also been lost for the season. In a cruel twist, Smith was injured during the same practice that cost Cupp the upcoming season.
“Sources told AY this morning that freshman TE Blake Smith, who was having a very solid camp, has also suffered a season-ending injury — apparently in the same practice as Baylor Cupp,” Passwaters reported on Friday morning.
A native of Southlake, Texas, Smith was rated as a three-star prospect and the No. 24 tight end in the nation for the 2020 recruiting cycle. He enrolled early in College Station following the end of his playing career at Southlake Carroll High School.
Smith signed with Texas A&M over scholarship offers from Alabama and Baylor.
