Texas A&M gets big Wednesday commitment
Texas A&M is coming off of a big weekend securing commitments from highly-touted prospects Ben Malena, Dominique Patterson and Malcome Kennedy. Now it looks as though the Aggie coaching staff has picked up another big one from a prospect with all kinds of potential.
On Wednesday afternoon, Allen (Texas) High School offensive lineman Cedric Ogbuehi confirmed through text message that he has decided to end his recruitment by committing to Coach Sherman.
"I committed to A&M," Ogbuehi wrote on Wednesday.
Though he was on his way out to practice and didn't have time to talk in length about the big decision, he did comment on why he chose the Aggies.
"They were the school who wanted me the most and I felt comfortable there," he said.
The commitment follows a very positive visit to College Station this past weekend for Texas A&M's junior day. The trip ended with Ogbuehi naming the Aggies his favorite but clearly he was more impressed than even he had let on.
At 6-foot-5, 270 pounds, Ogbuehi is still learning the position of offensive tackle but his athleticism gives him all kinds of upside. In 2008, Ogbuehi earned first team all-state honors in just his first season ever playing the position. That upside is what has earned him offers from Kansas, Arizona, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and Baylor.
