(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By KRISTIE RIEKEN AP Sports Writer No. 10 Texas A&M needed someone to step up following the graduation of several key receivers. The Aggies found their man in Malcome Kennedy, a former quarterback from a high school in the state's smallest classification. He is flourishing in his third season and has become a favorite target of Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel. Coach Kevin Sumlin has been impressed with his improvement and says he has worked to become ''a complete player.'' Kennedy is second on the team with 19 catches for 218 yards. His four touchdowns lead A&M's receivers as the Aggies prepare for Saturday's game at Arkansas. He has given Manziel another option when defenses focus on fellow receiver Mike Evans, who is third in the nation with 143.8 yards receiving a game.
