Texas A&M loses commitment form 4-star safety after Jimbo Fisher announced as coach

Things aren’t getting off to a great start in the Jimbo Fisher era at Texas A&M, at least on the recruiting trail.

One of A&M’s top commits, Leon O’ Neal Jr., a 4-star safety out of Cypress Springs, Texas, announced his de-commitment from the school on Friday night following the coaching change.

O’Neal is the No. 7 safety in the country and the No. 8 player in the state of Texas. O’Neal Jr. did imply that he was not down with Texas A&M, so he could eventually end up back in the class once all things are said and done.

Prior to O’Neal’s de-commitment, the Aggies had a top-10 class in the country and the No. 3 class in the SEC.

Fisher officially left Florida State on Friday, and reportedly signed a 10-year $75-million deal with the school.
