Texas A&M Aggies

Four-star QB decommits from A&M; has visited TCU

One of the top quarterbacks in the country decommitted from Texas A&M on Tuesday.

Four-star quarterback Grant Gunnell (Houston/St. Pius) announced on Twitter that he was backing off his verbal commitment to the Aggies to explore other options. Though he did add that A&M was still "very much in play."

Could A&M's loss be TCU's gain?

It's a possibility. While the Frogs appear set at QB with sophomore Shawn Robinson and star freshman Justin Rogers, TCU's staff has let it be known that Gunnell is a top target in the 2019 cycle. He attended TCU's Junior Day on Jan. 20.

LSU is one school that industry experts seem to believe is the top choice at the moment.

Gunnell was the first commitment for A&M in 2019 but started to look around at other schools one head coach Kevin Sumlin was fired.

He threw for just shy of 5,000 yards and 61 touchdowns, while rushing for 390 yards and eight scores in 12 games as a junior.

The 6-foot-6, 212-pound junior is rated as the No. 49 prospect in 2019, No. 2 pro-style QB overall, and No. 7 player in Texas, per 247Sports.com.
