The Christian Kirk era in College Station is over.
The former five-star recruit has been arguably the team’s best offensive player since his arrival to campus three seasons ago and never surrendered that distinction during his collegiate career. He’s expected to be one of the first receivers taken in the upcoming 2018 NFL Draft.
In his first game as an Aggie, Kirk caught six passes for 106 yards and a score and added another 118 return yards and another score in the 2015 season opener against a ranked Arizona State team. In his final game as an Aggie, Kirk caught 13 passes for 189 yards and three touchdowns against Wake Forest. Those stats are all the more impressive considering he was hurt after getting his ankle rolled up on during a teammate in the bowl game.
Kirk announced the news on Twitter with the following post:
Kirk finishes his Aggie career with 234 catches for 2,856 yards and 26 touchdowns. He was also consistently one of the nation’s best return men during his career as he combined to have over 1,800 total returns yards including one kickoff return and six punt returns for touchdowns.
Without a doubt, Kirk leaves A&M as one of the best players in school history. Check out where he stacks up in the Aggie record book after only three years on campus:
