Texas A&M vs. Auburn

Texas A&M’s Jacob Kibodi, right, secures the football as Auburn’s Noah Igbinoghene tries to tackle him in the fourth quarter Saturday at Kyle Field.

Texas A&M sophomore running back Jacob Kibodi entered the NCAA transfer portal Wednesday.

“I still want to play football at a high level and I believe I can do that,” Kibodi said. “It’s nothing against A&M and the coaches. They are good coaches. I love the school. I love the fans and everything.”

Kibodi had 123 yards rushing this season on 31 carries with a touchdown. He had 45 career carries for 270 yards and two scores.

Kibodi saw his playing time increase after sophomore starting running back Jashaun Corbin suffered a season-ending injury against Clemson. He started against Lamar and had 11 carries for 45 yards. He had 15 carries for 59 yards in the next two games against Auburn and Arkansas but had only two more carries, both against Alabama, for 8 yards.

“I didn’t feel like myself,” Kibodi said of his season. “I’m feeling better right now, though.”

The Baton Rouge, Louisiana, native said he is open to playing anywhere.

A&M’s returning running backs on scholarship are true freshman Isaiah Spiller, sophomore Cordarrian Richardson and Corbin.

The Aggies have two running backs committed in the class of 2020: Fort Bend Marshall’s Devon Achane and Deondre Jackson of Stone Mountain Stephenson in Georgia.
