Texas A&M wide receiver Ainias Smith will return for a fifth season with the team, he announced Thursday.
Smith missed the majority of the 2022 season after sustaining a fractured leg during the Aggies’ 23-21 victory over Arkansas on Sept. 24. He is able to return to Texas A&M in 2023 because of the eligibility granted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Let’s run it back,” Smith said at the conclusion of the video he posted on Twitter.
Smith got off to a strong start to the season before being injured. He had six catches for 164 yards and two touchdowns in the Aggies’ 31-0 season-opening victory over Sam Houston. Smith finished with 15 receptions for 291 yards and two scores in four games.
All told, Smith has 127 career receptions for 1,612 yards and 17 touchdowns as well as 67 carries for 384 rushing yards and four scores.
