Texas A&M cornerback Sam McCall set to transfer after limited role

Texas A&M cornerback Sam McCall plans to enter the NCAA Transfer Portal after a limited role in the 2021 season. With new additions to the cornerback group, McCall’s chances of moving up the depth chart were slim.

Sam McCall to Transfer After Limited Role

Sam McCall, the reserve cornerback for Texas A&M, is set to transfer to his third college football program in as many years. According to reports, McCall plans to enter the NCAA Transfer Portal this spring. The next window for the portal will open on April 15 and will last for 15 days.

McCall, who previously played for Florida State, had a limited role in the struggling cornerback group at Texas A&M last season. Despite appearing in 11 games and making one start, he only recorded six tackles and defended one pass.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound cornerback’s lone start came against Ole Miss in November. Due to injuries to other A&M cornerbacks, McCall was given an opportunity to showcase his skills. However, he struggled in coverage, allowing seven catches on nine targets for 152 yards and a touchdown. The game ended in a 38-35 victory for Ole Miss.

With the addition of four scholarship players to the cornerback group through the transfer portal, it seemed unlikely that McCall would move up the depth chart this spring. A&M also has returning cornerbacks who received significant playing time last season. These include incumbent starter Tyreek Chappell, as well as sophomores Jayvon Thomas and Bravion Rogers.

Since the departure of head coach Jimbo Fisher last November, A&M has seen a total of 21 scholarship players enter the transfer portal, including McCall and safety Jacoby Mathews. As of now, the Aggies have a projected scholarship count of 89 for the 2024 season. NCAA rules state that they do not have to meet the 85-player scholarship limit until the first day of the fall semester.

McCall initially joined Texas A&M in January 2022 after a limited role as a true freshman at Florida State. In his eight games with the Seminoles, he recorded five tackles and returned eight kickoffs for 142 yards.

During his recruitment, McCall was highly sought after and received a four-star rating from 247Sports. He was ranked as the fourth-best safety, sixth-best player in Florida, and 47th overall player in the 2022 class. In the 247Sports Composite rankings, McCall received a four-star rating and was ranked as the fourth-best safety, eighth-best player in Florida, and 48th overall player.
