Leon O'Neal Jr. fires back at narrative that Texas A&M is 'scared' about realignment
Texas A&M has gone through a range of emotions in the last few days since news came out that Texas and Oklahoma are considering a move to the SEC.
Defensive back Leon O’Neal Jr. showed why the Aggies are not scared about the idea of their in-state arch-rivals and former Big 12 foe Texas and Oklahoma joining the conference they’ve been in since 2012. After a range of stats listed from the 2020 season, O’Neal added on Twitter, “Now tell me who the hell is scared? Stop acting confused like our foundation isn’t strong.”
O’Neal is a key cog for the Aggies as he started all 10 games a year ago, and had career highs in total tackles (48), interceptions (2) and pass deflections (5) on the season … Had seven tackles, two for loss, also picked off a pass and returned it 35 yards in the season-opening win over Vanderbilt.
The Aggies have plenty going for them, and O’Neal simply reminded people what they have to offer, and that could soon include some serious motivation to show who’s the biggest kid on the block in the state and that region of the country.
