It hasn't always been an easy road for Honolulu (Haw.) St. Louis wide receiver and Texas A&M commit Jeremy Tabuyo. A knee injury derailed his junior season and put his college dreams in jeopardy. One year and a lot of hard work later, he is reaping the rewards.

"It's an honor and privilege to be one of the few that are selected and recognized to play in an All-American game," said Tabuyo. "It's a dream come true for me. Growing up I always dreamed of playing in one of the biggest games with the best players across the country."

Tabuyo is happy with his season so far, both individually and as a football team.

"I think as a team we definitely matured more on and off the field this year as compared to last year," said Tabuyo. "I'm proud of how we are playing as a team, and playing with effort no matter what the score is. We still have a chance to go to the playoffs. We need to beat Punahou, which is our last regular season game. And need for another team to beat them as well."

"This season I think I'm playing great as an individual. Eleven months ago I had ACL surgery and my stats are better than last years," said Tabuyo. "So far in nine games I have 44 receptions for 722 yards and 11 touchdowns (10 receiving)."

Tabuyo committed to Texas A&M shortly after receiving the offer this summer and hasn't wavered since.

"I am still solid with my commitment to Texas A&M, and I will stay that way," said Tabuyo. "I love the coaching staff there and the direction that the program is going. I think it will be a great fit for me."

"I'm still planning to take my official visit during the weekend of November 24th when A&M plays Missouri," said Tabuyo. "The final game of the regular season."

Most programs have backed off Tabuyo since his commitment to the Aggies, but he is still hearing from a few.

"Since I committed to Texas A&M, most of the schools that have been contacting me and sending stuff have stopped," said Tabuyo. "It was pretty amazing the effect it had once word got out. Now just a handful of schools are contacting me or still sending out mail or emails. I'm still hearing from Kansas, Oregon State, UCLA, Washington State, Missouri and UNLV."
