Texas A&M Fans Are Experiencing Deja Vu After Star Freshman Gets Arrested Before First Game

The more things change, the more they seem to stay the same the Texas A&M Aggies and their fans.

The Aggies entered the 2022 college football season with extremely high hopes following a legendary recruiting class.

But it didn’t take long for things to go off the rails. The Aggies dropped their second game of the season to visiting Appalachian State, and it was all downhill from there.

Texas A&M finished the season 5-7, missing a bowl game entirely. But that wasn’t all. A number of players from the highly touted freshman class ran into trouble with the law and 31 players in total transferred out of the program.

Among those players were 2022 recruits Denver Harris and Chris Marshall, both of whom were highly touted out of high school and both of whom faced legal troubled.

Well, fast forward a year and it appears the Aggies have not learned their lesson.

Texas A&M freshman wideout Micah Tease was arrested Friday on charges of possession of a controlled substance and a separate charge of less than two ounces of marijuana, according to the Brazos County Jail website.

Tease has since been released on bail after posting a $10,000 bond for the first charge and a $3,000 bond for the second charge, bringing the total to $13,000. He has been supsended indefinitely per the athletic department policy following an arrest, according to an athletic department spokesperson.

Tease, a four-star recruit in the 2023 class, had big expectations heading into his debut season. In the annual Maroon and White Game, he caught a 65-yard touchdown pass from redshirt sophomore Max Johnson to give the White team an early 7-3 lead.

Aggies fans couldn’t believe that history appears to be repeating itself.

The 23rd-ranked Aggies begin their 2023 season on Saturday night against the visiting New Mexico Lobos. But they’re have to do so without Tease at their disposal.
