Four-star offensive lineman Akinola Ogunbiyi’s recruitment has come full circle. The Sugar Land (Tex.) Kempner product is once again a Texas A&M commit.
Ogunbiyi had been committed to the Aggies from June 2018 through the beginning of March before backing off his pledge. He then verbally committed to Georgia in April.
However, Ogunbiyi switched things up again today, flipping from the Bulldogs back to A&M. He says this decision is final.
“My recruiting is 100% over. I will be playing football and attending The Texas A&M University!!!” Ogunbiyi tweeted.

Recruiting often takes bizarre twists and turns, but situations like Ogunbiyi’s are pretty rare. You don’t often see a prospect recommit to a program after they decommit.
However, it looks like Georgia’s loss is A&M’s ultimate gain. Ogunbiyi is the No. 11 offensive guard in the 2020 class and the No. 42 rising senior in the state of Texas, according to 247Sports’ Composite Rankings.
Texas A&M’s 2020 recruiting class currently ranks sixth in the SEC and 11th nationally.
