The Cotton Bowl is nearly a month away but Thursday, Oklahoma lost to Texas A&M.

The Aggies picked up a commitment from Dallas Kimball defensive tackle Justin Manning, the younger brother of former Sooners standout DeMarcus Granger.

Manning (6-foot-2, 275 pounds) picked the Aggies over OU and TCU. He also had offers from a large list of other schools, including LSU, Arkansas, Kansas State, Miami, Tennessee, UCLA and Michigan.

Manning is ranked sixth nationally at his position and No. 90 overall by Rivals.com.

The Sooners have 14 commitments for the 2013 class. None are defensive tackles.
