The Texas A&M football team began fall practice Friday in preparation for their road-opener against South Carolina on Aug. 28. It was readily apparent that there have been some changes to this team since the end of the 2013 season.
The 2014 version of the Aggies will be younger than their 2013 counterpart, but more experienced and more talented. Head coach Kevin Sumlin and his staff have done an excellent job turning the roster over and replenishing it with SEC-level talent.
The Aggies look like an SEC football team now. Whether or not that translates to more victories on the field remains to be seen. The absence of Johnny Manziel and his confident demeanor at practice is apparent.
This is a new team with new players waiting to step up and make their mark on the program. This is a look at some of the first impressions from the first couple of day of the Aggies' fall camp.
