4 star recruit flips from Texas to rivals A&M

Published Add your comment

Texas Longhorns have suffered a blow to their 2014 recruiting class ahead of National Signing Day.

4-star recruit, Otaro Alaka had committed to the Longhorns as far back as April 2013 but has had a change of heart after the coaching change up at the school.

Max Olson of ESPN explained that the 6' 3" Houston native reconsidered his options after Mack Brown resigned.

And despite a home visit from new head coach Charlie Strong this past week the young player chose rival school Texas A&M after building up a strong relationship with their staff over recent months.

Alaka, who attends Cypress Falls High School, is considered the 11th best linebacker in this years recruiting class, and 163rd best overall, according to 24/7 composite rankings.

We can't help but think Charlie Strong's recently publicised player regulations may have impacted on his decision somewhat. 

And Longhorns fans will no doubt be hurting that the Texas native decided to pick their bitter rivals rather than move further afield.
