Just like that, a new era will begin at Texas A&M. The Aggies will have to redefine their team after losing their two best offensive weapons, Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel and Biletnikoff Award finalist receiver Mike Evans.
Manziel became the king of college football as a redshirt freshman, claiming the Heisman and leading A&M to a prosperous first year in the SEC. Several talented signal-callers will be vying for his throne, including the No. 1 quarterback recruit for 2014, Kyle Allen.
Evans was always one of Manziel's favorite targets, but he emerged as one of college football's best receivers in 2013. Both will be taking their incredible abilities to the NFL draft.
With the remarkable pair heading out, we'll take a look at the impending battles to be the next in line for starting spots in Kevin Sumlin's prolific offense in College Station.
