Bobby Taylor was a four-star player in the Aggies’ No. 1 recruiting class in 2022. He had become the 30th Texas A&M player to enter the portal, which leads all of college football.
Now, though, he plans to suit up for the Ags once again. The second-year player will hope to see his first action in College Station next season.
