Could Recent Texas A&M Football Decommit Rejoin Fold?
A huge contributing factor to the sullen affect adopted by so many Texas A&M football fans over the past two weeks has been the effect this short losing streak has had on recruiting. One of the biggest hits was the decommitment of top-100 wide receiver Drelon Miller. Many thought Miller was shortly bound to announce a pledge to the LSU Tigers, and that may still happen. He is certainly trending towards Baton Rouge per many recruiting insiders. However, a surprise emerged today before kickoff: it appears that Miller is in College Station, not even two weeks after announcing he was no longer committed.
Is this something, or are we making too much out of it? Well, it’s not nothing. It’s not too often that you see a guy who has recently reneged on his pledge show back up on campus at the next opportunity. I think, if nothing else, this speaks to the relationships that this staff has formed with a guy like Drelon, and writ large, how good they are at staying consistent through the highs and lows of different recruitments.
Miller’s decision doubtlessly relies in no small part on the performance of the Aggie passing offense. After things started going downhill on that front when Weigman went down, it makes sense that a guy of his caliber would begin to second-guess things, especially with so many teams in his ear. Hopefully the Aggies can show him something different today, but even if not, maybe this coaching staff can continue to make a solid pitch to him during his time in College Station.
