Four-star outside linebacker DaShaun White has committed to Texas A&M.

White announced his decision in a video Sunday afternoon on Twitter.

The 6-foot-1, 222-pound White picked the Aggies over Oklahoma, his other finalist. He announced Saturday on Twitter that he would make his decision at noon CT Sunday.

White also has offers from Oklahoma State, Arkansas, Baylor, Missouri, TCU and UCLA, among others.

White attends Richland High School in North Richland Hills, Texas, a suburb of Fort Worth.

White, according to 247Sports Composite, is a top-25 outside linebacker and top-45 overall prospect in Texas.

Overall, White’s commitment gives Texas A&M its 16th in the 2018 recruiting class, which is ranked by 247Sports as 13th in the nation and fourth in the SEC. Among the Aggies’ other commitments are three-star outside linebacker Brian Johnson, three-star weak-side defensive end Tyree Wilson and four-star strong-side defensive end Max Wright.

Texas A&M defensive ends coach Terry Price serves as White’s primary recruiter, while defensive coordinator John Chavis is his secondary recruiter.

White had 114 tackles (18 for loss), three sacks, three pass breakups, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one interception last season as a junior at Richland High.

Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin celebrated the news of White’s commitment on Twitter as he does for every recruit who pledges to Texas A&M.
