4-star QB Grant Gunnell decommits from Texas A&M

Grant Gunnell

One of the supposed keystones of Texas A&M’s 2019 recruiting class isn’t so sure about his commitment.

Four-star quarterback Grant Gunnell is reopening his recruitment after being committed to Texas A&M for eight months. He specifically cited the coaching transition as one of the reasons for his decision, which he announced on Twitter late Tuesday.

Gunnell (6 feet 6, 212 pounds), from Houston St. Pius X, is the second-ranked pro-style quarterback in the nation for the 2019 class and is a top-50 prospect overall. He has nearly 40 offers, a number that could grow further upon his decommitment.

Texas A&M remains in the running to sign him, but other major programs are now in the hunt as well. That list includes Ohio State, which offered Gunnell on Tuesday. Other SEC programs with offers for Gunnell are Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, LSU, Mississippi State, Missouri, Ole Miss and Tennessee – more than half the conference. He is scheduled to be in Baton Rouge on Friday on an unofficial visit.

With Gunnell’s decommitment, Texas A&M is down to five pledges for the 2019 class, a list headed by five-star safety Brian Williams of Dallas Bishop Dunne.
