Back in June, Texas A&M thought it had landed a stud wide receiver in Troy Omeire. Fast-forward to today and the Aggies appear to have lost him to another in-state powerhouse.
Taking to Twitter on Friday, Omeire announced that he would be flipping his commitment from Texas A&M to Texas. He said he appreciated the support of receivers coach Dameyune Craig and the Aggies fans.
to coach craig and all my a&m fans i truly appreciate your support throughout my commitment but i will be continuing my journey at the university of texas
247Sports rates Omeire as a four-star recruit and the No. 188 overall prospect in the country. He is the No. 32 wide receiver in the nation, and the No. 29 prospect from the state of Texas.
Over the past two years he has recorded 85 receptions for 1,546 yards and 21 touchdowns. For his efforts, Omeire earned all-district honors in both seasons.

It’s a tough blow for Texas A&M’s recruiting efforts, but yet another feather in the cap of Tom Herman and the Longhorns.
With the addition of Omeire, Texas now has the No. 5 2020 recruiting class in the nation, and the top class in the Big 12 by 247Sports.
Texas A&M, on the other hand, has a respectable 16th-ranked class.
