The Aggie defense can use all of the standout players they can get. Texas A&M defensive back Deshazor Everett seems to be the best defensive player on the field. He splits time between cornerback and safety. With that being said, let’s take a look at his time at A&M.
Freshman Year (2011): Everett was a true freshman for the Texas A&M football team, and saw action during every regular season game. He had three season-high tackles against Texas.
Sophomore Year (2012): He started in 12 of 13 games. Everett missed out on the Louisiana Tech game due to injury. He contributed 56 tackles, which included 31 solo stops. He intercepted two passes for 26 yards, and returned one for a touchdown. He shut down Alabama’s quarterback A.J. McCarron at the goal line during their big 29-24 win. Everett also had a career best six solo tackles against LSU.
Junior Year (2013): Everett started out the season poorly, missing 1.5 games due to suspensions from a targeting call against Rice and off the field issues. Despite that setback he is still one of the team leaders with 31 tackles so far.
Depending on the opponent, Deshazor Everett bounces between safety and cornerback. He is one of the two best corners in the nation. Everett held Alabama’s Amari Cooper for to two receptions for 34 yards.
Everett needs to stay healthy to lead his team to win a national title. He has gained momentum during his years at TAMU and looks to only get better. Texas A&M has great potential to make it all the way to the BCS National Championship, but their defense needs to hold strong to make it happen.
