After sitting out the entire 2009 season, fullback Brandon Perez will be back in an Aggie uniform this year.
Perez's future was in doubt after last season, his senior year. He suffered an ankle injury which sidelined him for the entire 2009 campaign and threatened to end his career. It turns out he was granted a medical redshirt.
Perez was a grinder for the Aggies under Hal Mumme, often being a blue-collar worker who did most of his damage in the trenches. He would get the occasional carry and was used from time to time as a pass catcher out of the backfield.
The team will also bring back fullback Ronald Opetaia, who was a good player for the Aggies last year. How both of them are utilized in the offense in 2010 remains to be seen, but both should be in the mix as offensive contributors.
