You can never have enough depth at the quarterback position, especially heading into a season where the starting job is up for grabs.

That’s the position Texas A&M finds itself this offseason as the competition in College Station is officially on between Zach Calzada, Haynes King and Eli Stowers but the Aggies have reportedly added another potential challenger to the mix.

According to Matt Zenitz of, Texas A&M is adding former Hawaii signal-caller Zach Daniel to the roster this offseason.

Daniel is a Houston native and was listed as a three-star prospect out of The Kinkaid School of Houston during the 2019 recruiting cycle. While he was on scholarship at Hawaii, Zenitz is reporting that Daniel will begin his Texas A&M career as a walk-on.

The Houston native did not register any stats during his time with Hawaii.
