One of the top quarterback recruits in the country is back on the market. The No. 2 pro-style quarterback de-committed last week.

Grant Gunnell, a four-star quarterback, backed off his commitment to Texas A&M. He thinks he committed too early and with the Aggies making a coaching change, he felt it was best to open it back up.

“I feel that I may have committed to Texas A&M a little early. With the coaching transition, along with other factors I feel it is in my best interest to re-open my recruitment. While Texas A&M is still very much in play, I feel this is the best decision to make at the moment,” he wrote.

Gunnell is drawing interest from nearly every program in the country. Three schools appear to stand out, though.

LSU, Oklahoma State and Arkansas are believed by most to the be three favorites right now, if he goes elsewhere. Many 247Sports experts actually expect him to end up back with the Aggies.

Texas A&M still leads the "Crystal Ball." Oklahoma State, LSU and Arkansas all have predictions, too.

Gunnell's parents went to Arkansas, so the Razorbacks might actually be the favorite. New Arkansas coach Chad Morris is certainly making him a priority. Other schools are trying to get involved, too. Gunnell reportedly has plans to visit Ohio State.
