The college football world is winding down after an exciting season, especially for SEC fans. To put it simply, it’s been a boring offseason thus far. Thankfully, if you’re a Texas A&M football fan, that does not apply in the slightest.

With a recruiting class that could finish as the greatest of all time, there has been no shortage of action since A&M played its last football game in late November. The ending was bitter after a loss to LSU but everything since has been exciting.

But among the flurry of highly-ranked recruits that Jimbo Fisher has pulled into College Station, the biggest news of the offseason may have been the decommitment of five-star linebacker Harold Perkins.

Texas A&M football prospect Harold Perkins decommitted, but still land in College Station when all is said and done

I’ve done into more depth on this, but Harold Perkins’ decommitment is not an announcement that he will not be attending school in Aggieland. In fact, most experts believe that Perkins will still end up playing football for Jimbo Fisher. So why did he decommit in the first place?

To be honest, I don’t know.

The former Aggie commit visited Florida shortly before his commitment to A&M and is visiting both Miami and LSU today (January 28th). In all likelihood, he didn’t want to feel trapped into a decision before putting pen to paper. While his short-lived commitment may not be ideal, Aggie fans should still feel good about the fact that he was willing to commit in the first place.

Today, I’m going to give three reasons why Harold Perkins should commit to the Texas A&M football team.
