Texas A&M junior quarterback Kellen Mond along with junior defensive tackle Justin Madubuike and senior punter Braden Mann will be at next week’s Southeastern Conference Media Days along with coach Jimbo Fisher.
The Aggies will meet the press Tuesday on the second day of the four-day event which returns to Hoover, Alabama, after being in Atlanta last year.
Mond will be one of nine quarterbacks at SEC Media days joining Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa, Florida’s Feleipe Franks, Georgia’s Jake Fromm, LSU’s Joe Burrow, Ole Miss’ Matt Corral, Missouri’s Kelly Bryant, South Carolina’s Jake Bentley and Tennessee’s Jarrett Guarantano. Nine is the most attendees of any one position. There also will be nine defensive linemen. Mann will be the lone kicking specialist among the 42 players. There will be only two tight ends and three defensive backs, three running backs and four wide receivers.
Mond will be the third Aggie quarterback to attend SEC Media Days, joining Johnny Manziel (2013) and Trevor Knight (2016). Mann is the second punter. Drew Kaser went in 2014. Madubuike is the fourth D-lineman joining Julien Obioha (2015), Myles Garrett (’16) and Kinglsey Keke (’18).
