Quartney Davis will not see the field in 2016.
The former 4-star recruit will miss the entire season after undergoing ACL surgery, according to the Houston Chronicle’s Brent Zwerneman.
Davis was one of the Aggies’ highest-rated signees, coming in as the nation’s No. 24 wide receiver and the state of Texas’ No. 21 overall prospect, according to 247Sports’ composite ranking.
Twice committed to Texas A&M, Davis rescinded his pledge to the Aggies in December before reaffirming his commitment on National Signing Day. He chose the Aggies over Ole Miss, Oklahoma State and Arkansas, among others.
He was one of three wide receiver signees in Texas A&M’s 2016 class, along with 4-star Clyde Chriss and 3-star Kendrick Rogers. The injury shouldn’t hinder the Aggies too much, as Texas A&M returns Speedy Noil, Christian Kirk, Ricky Seals-Jones and Josh Reynolds.
The news come shortly after coach Kevin Sumlin confirmed that defensive end signee Alton Robinson has been released from his scholarship.
