Coveted Houston HS quarterback decommits from A&M
One of the nation's most coveted quarterbacks in the 2019 recruiting class had a change of heart Tuesday, potentially altering plans for a number of the nation's top college football programs.
Grant Gunnell, the No. 2-ranked pro-style passer in the current junior class according to 247Sports, decommitted from Texas A&M just hours after receiving an offer from Ohio State.
The 6-foot-6 high school star from St. Pius X in Houston had committed to A&M last June, but the Aggies have since gone through a change at the top with Jimbo Fisher hired to replace Kevin Sumlin as head coach. Fisher has targeted a number of dual-threat quarterbacks, including senior James Foster of Alabama, who committed to A&M this month.
"After much consideration and discussion with my family, I feel that I may have committed to Texas A&M a little early," Gunnell posted on Twitter. "With the coaching transition, along with other factors, I feel it is in my best interest to reopen my recruitment. While Texas A&M is still very much in play, I feel as if this is the best decision to make at the moment. Thank you and God bless."
Gunnell his thrown for 11,356 yards and 142 touchdowns in three high school seasons.
