Jimbo Fisher announces that he's made a decision on his starting quarterback
After weeks of competition between Haynes King and Zach Calzada, coach Jimbo Fisher on Wednesday announced that he has made a decision.
Fisher has named King as the starting quarterback for the Aggies, he told ESPN 97.5 in Houston, Jeremy Branham reported.
King played in 2 games in 2020, and completed 2-of-4 passes for 59 yards and a TD, also with 1 interception.
This is the first time since Fisher has been at Texas A&M that he won’t have Kellen Mond at quarterback.
Last week, Fisher explained that part of the decision factored in how each player communicated on the field and their body language.
“That stuff is just as important to me as is the other parts of it,” Fisher said. “You start getting those things when you start getting comfortable in what you’re doing and that means knowledge of what’s happening. Both guys are making progress.”
