Texas A&M’s linebacking corps has been an area of concern, and news on Friday doesn’t help as the Aggies look for more production from the position this season.
Defensive coordinator John Chavis was already dealing with the departures of three of the four top tacklers at linebacker from last season — Shaan Washington (graduated), Claude George (graduated) and Richard Moore (transferred in May).
Now, junior LB Dwaine Thomas, the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Boutte, La. native, will transfer from the school. He made his decision public via Twitter on Friday afternoon.

It’s not immediately clear where Thomas will transfer to.
Thomas saw limited action in 12 games last season, only recording 6 total tackles and 1 tackle for loss. He had a career-high 3 tackles against LSU on last November. He earned a start against Kansas State in the Texas Bowl but only managed a tackle.
As a freshman, he had 3 tackles in 10 appearances.
The Aggies are trying to bounce back from a season that saw the unit allow 441.8 yards per game, 10th in the SEC.
