Shane Johnson announced that he’s leaving Texas A&M.
On Friday, the preferred walk-on quarterback wrote in a note on Twitter that he’ll leave the Aggies and be eligible immediately at the Football Bowl Subdivision level. He didn’t last long in College Station after announcing his commitment in January.

Johnson, who’s 6-foot-2, was rated as the No. 12 dual-threat quarterback in the 2018 JUCO class, per the 247Sports composite rankings. Before his commitment to Texas A&M, he previously committed to Kent State.
It’s not too surprising to hear that Johnson will explore other opportunities beyond Aggieland. Kellen Mond and Nick Starkel are taking part in a quarterback competition that will decide Texas A&M’s future at the position.
The Aggies are entering their first campaign under coach Jimbo Fisher. They open the season against Northwestern State on Aug. 30.
