Texas A&M clears receiver Demond Demas to return to the team following suspension
Good news to share for the Aggies as receiver Demond Demas has been cleared to hit the practice field to start spring practice in College Station.
If you missed the news from two weeks ago, Demas was arrested for possession of fewer than two ounces of marijuana.
Following that arrest, Texas A&M suspended the former five-star recruit.
“He was suspended from school, they are having a meeting on that – normal procedure, has nothing to do with us, it’s school procedure,” Jimbo Fisher shared during his first press conference of the spring last week. “When that’s cleared up, he’ll be back in action with us.”
Demas made his debut for the Aggies last season, appearing in three games. He did not register any stats last season, which was his first since his junior season of high school — Demas was ruled ineligible for his senior season of high school football after transferring schools.
This spring looks to be very important when it comes to development for Demas as the Aggies are searching for more weapons to emerge around the team’s next quarterback.
With All-SEC tight end Jalen Wydermyer sitting out the spring after suffering an off-the-field injury and Caleb Chapman missing camp due to his continued rehab, Demas should have plenty of opportunities to show what he can do in the first spring camp of his college career.
