At his press conference on Sunday in College Station, Jimbo Fisher shed some light on what the Texas A&M kick return unit could look like this season. According to, Fisher said running back Devon Achane is a likely candidate to be returning kicks this fall.

“We’ll return kicks, but it’ll depend on who the team is and what the situation is. We’ll pick our spots,” Fisher said. “We’ll definitely take shots at it, no doubt. I would suspect Achane will be one of the returners.”

A native of Missouri City, Texas, Achane played in eight games as a freshman in 2020. He rushed for 364 yards and 4 touchdowns while adding 5 catches for 97 yards and a score.

Last season, Texas A&M decided to opt for a kick return over a touchback just 3 times (30 total kick return yards in 2020).
