Aggie coach DeWayne Walker said that the team will move running back Robert Clay to safety.
Clay has had a good camp running the football for the Aggies, although the team is deep at that position. Walker said that he thought Clay could be ready for action when the team squares off against Idaho on Sept. 5, the opener for both teams.
“He's a great athlete and a smart kid,” Walker said. “We think he can pick things up quickly (at safety).”
NMSU is set at safety with Stephon Hatchett, Alphonso Powell and Junior Fasavalu. Walker said that he thought Clay could move into the top-4 in the rotation quickly and could be an immediate contributor.
