Despite reports, 4-star outside linebacker Corey Nelson (Dallas Skyline High School) says he remains committed to Texas A&M and will sign with the Aggies.
Nelson told TexAgs.com via text, “I’m not committed to OU and I will remain an Aggie. It’s my future. Report that please. Tell everyone I’m through with recruiting and I will remain at A&M. It’s my future.”
Thursday night, OUInsider.com reported that Nelson had committed to OU. It’s unclear if Nelson temporarily changed his mind or never changed his commitment in the first place.
Despite being committed to A&M for months, Nelson took an official visit to Norman last weekend. The Sooners were confident enough in their chances that defensive coordinator Brent Venables followed that up with an in-home visit.
But Nelson apparently has decided to stick with the Aggies, though this one may not be over until he signs on the dotted line Wednesday.
Nelson is rated the No. 12 outside linebacker in the country by Rivals.com.
* In other news, Texas picked up a pair of 5-star verbals Friday. The first was defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat, who announced he would be signing with Texas over OU and Houston.
Later in the day, West Chester Lakota West (Ohio) linebacker Jordan Hicks, the No. 1 outside linebacker in the country, also revealed he had committed to Texas over Ohio State and Florida.
