One of the top recruits from the 2018 class is considering a significant move. Leon O'Neal, a former four-star safety recruit, announced he's entered the transfer portal.

The Texas A&M safety took to Twitter on Thursday night to announce he's in the portal and could take his talents elsewhere. O'Neal was one of the most active recruits and players on social media over the past few years.

Despite that activity, it's unclear why he decided to take his talents away from the Aggies. He did not mention a reason in his post on Twitter, rather thanking the fans and his teammates he spent the last two years with.

"I want to thank Texas A&M for everything," O'Neal said on Twitter. "Every game was one I’ll never forget. Win, lose or draw The 12th man never lost their spirit. I want to thank my brothers for the love and support. Our bond will last forever. I have now placed myself in the transfer portal."

Here's the full post.

O'Neal was the No. 8 safety recruit in the country coming out of high school in 2018. He was the No. 8 player from the state of Texas and the No. 75 player overall in the class.

We'll have to wait and see where he decides to transfer - if he keeps his name in the portal.
