The top QB recruit de-committed from Texas A&M tonight.
The No. 2 pro-style quarterback recruit in the 2019 class is back on the open market. He might not be for very long, though.
Grant Gunnell, a four-star quarterback out of Houston, de-committed from Texas A&M. He had been committed to the Aggies since last July.
That commitment came during the Kevin Sumlin era, though. Texas A&M has since fired Sumlin (who’s now at Arizona) and hired Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher.
Gunnell, a 6-foot-6 quarterback, announced his de-commitment on Twitter. “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.
While Gunnell’s decision is obviously understandable, the timing here is…interesting. Just hours earlier on Tuesday, the top recruit shared some other recruiting news.
“I am extremely Blessed and Excited to receive an offer from Ohio State University!!” he announced on Twitter.
Does this mean Ohio State is now seriously in play? It’s hard to think otherwise…
Thank you for everything Aggieland. pic.twitter.com/BDafr4rPer

Gunnell, the No. 49 overall recruit in the 2019 class, also holds offers from Alabama, Florida State, LSU, Michigan, Nebraska, Oregon and many others.
Ohio State has just one commit in the 2019 class right now – and he’s not a quarterback. The Buckeyes’ lone commit for ’19 is four-star offensive tackle Doug Nester.
