Once missing Texas A&M receiver wants to play football again

A former Texas A&M wide receiver that was once missing from the program following the biggest win in recent program history reportedly is hoping to get back on a football field real soon. Thomas Johnson, who went missing following Texas A&M’s road victory at Alabama in 2012, is attempting to get in shape for a possible return to football, although it likely will not come at Texas A&M.

Johnson has kept silent and remained out of the public eye since that bizarre sequence of events following the 2012 win at Alabama. He left Texas A&M on his own account and questions about his departure have largely gone unanswered since that time. But The San Antonio Express News recently caught up with Johnson’s mother, and she suggests her son is doing well and is ready to get back to playing football.

“He’s working out, he’s getting in shape, and he shall return,” his mother, Linda Hanks, told the paper. “He told me he wants to play ball again. Football is in his blood. It’s part of his DNA.”

If and when he returns to playing football, he will do so with three years remaining on his eligibility. He would be eligible to play at an FBS school this fall if a program happens to invite Johnson to be a part of the program.

    Is he no longer qualified to get back into A&M?

    He might well still be qualified at A&M, but why would they want him? Really, any school is going to want a lot of questions answered to feels reasonably certain he won’t walk off again prior to committing one of their scholarships to him.

    If he doesn’t expect a scholarship… And can still play… I see no reason why he wouldn’t be with a team.

    If I were him I wouldn’t answer any questions about it either.

    Show them what they want to see on the field.

    So has he been attending class somewhere the past 1 1/2 years? Otherwise, how can he step on the field anywhere?
