Texas A&M OL Jared Hocker announces plans for the 2021 season
One of the Maroon Goons is off to the NFL.
Jared Hocker, a member of the Texas A&M offensive line, which was a finalist for the Joe Moore Award as the nation’s best offensive line, has announced his plans for next season, which means he’s played his last in Aggieland.
“On and off the field the last four years have been a dream come true,” he wrote on social media. “Ever since I was little, I wanted to play at Texas A&M and it was nothing short of everything I could have imagined. I’m so grateful for my time here and that this school took a chance on a three-star recruit out of a small Texas town.”
A native of North Richland Hills, Texas, the 6-foot-5, 325-pounder started every game for the Aggies this past season at right guard. It comes a year after he started all 13 games at left guard. At one point, that offensive line went four games without allowing a sack midway through the season.
Hocker was a three-year starter for the Aggies, and along with the 23 games of the past two seasons, he started the first eight games of the year as a sophomore in 2018 before he was injured for the rest of the season. Hocker also saw action as a true freshman in 2017, and played in six games with two starts.
