KINGSVILLE - Former Mathis star running back Levi Mair is coming back home, but not to join the Pirates, instead to play his college football at Texas A&M-Kingsville.
Mair confirmed this with me on Tuesday afternoon. The bruising back rushed for over 1,000 yard Mathis as a sophomore, before transferring to Lockhart for his junior and senior seasons.
"I picked A&M-Kingsville because of their tradition and the family feel that the program has, plus all of my family and childhood friends will be able to see me play again, said Mair.
This past season he registered 51 tackles in five games, while rushing for rushing for 516 yards on 70 carries.
He told me the Javs are recruiting him as an athlete, because of his size Mair can play a variety of positions so he will have to wait and see where he ends up.
