Bobby Brown decommitted from Texas A&M during the early signing period, citing the changing circumstances with the Aggie program. That change, presumably, centers around the ambiguous defensive staff in College Station. Fisher has yet to name a defensive coordinator and had not made a public statement concerning which members, if any, of the current defensive coaching staff will be retained.
While the Aggies took their time hiring a new DC the rest of the country did not slow down their pursuit of the Aggies’ commits. Brown’s decommitment came with the fear that he would sign with another school during the early signing period.
Brown announced Friday morning that he had decided not to sign during the early signing period. That was great news for the Aggies, but it was followed with another step away by Brown.
Brown committed to Alabama on the final evening of the early signing period. He did not sign, leaving the Aggies with a foothold to chip away at Brown’s Alabama pledge. He’s seemed uncertain about his last few steps, making it seem possible that Texas A&M could get him back in the fold.
