Myles Garrett left Texas A&M early this month so he could go be the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft, or close to it. He wrote a goodbye letter on the Players' Tribune as part of the usual decoupling process for high-end NFL draft prospects who leave early.

Unless you're an Aggies fan, the letter might not resonate with you. But if you're a tacos fan, it hits close to home.

"I would be remiss if I didn't mention something else I'll miss deeply: Fuego, the finest taco dispensary on the planet," Garrett writes. "Those tacos were always there for me when I needed them most. Wherever I end up next, I will do whatever I can to make sure that Fuego opens a franchise in that city. This is something that is very important to me."

Whoa, whoa, Myles. Why did you leave this all the way at the bottom of the letter? Tacos are a vital part of the college experience. You should be lucky that your school has a great taco place on campus. So many don't. This could be the way to land future recruits.

Fuego, by the way, seems to be the real deal. Yelp gives it four stars. If you don't want to take Garrett as his word, will you trust John T.? "Fuego is the best taco joint I've ever been to," he writes in a review. "And The King is the best taco in the world period."

If Sean Spicer said that, I might actually believe him. (Nah.)

It's so good that USA Today profiled it in 2015. It's open 24 hours a day and has breakfast.

Damn, Myles, why are you leaving again?
