Former Oregon commit Mohamed Diallo backed off of his Ducks pledge this week, and has already signed elsewhere.

Mohamed Diallo is a junior college standout at Arizona Western, but originally comes from Toronto. He's the No. 50 junior college player in the country, and the No. 14 defensive tackle.

Diallo backed away from Oregon on Tuesday, a few weeks after former Ducks head coach Willie Taggart left for Florida State. That decommitment also followed a visit to Texas A&M. Now, he's officially an Aggie, after signing with Texas A&M during the early signing period.

He announced the decision today.

Diallo was pursued by some other SEC programs, including Alabama and Ole Miss. He also serves as a potential replacement for four-star defensive tackle Bobby Brown, who flipped from A&M to Alabama earlier this week.

Texas A&M now has 15 commitments in the 2018 class, 10 of whom including Diallo have signed to play for the Aggies next season. The class is ranked 22nd in the country and eighth in the SEC, by 247Sports.
