Kevin Sumlin and Texas A&M suffered a setback Wednesday on the recruiting front, when it was learned that class of 2016 star receiver Quartney Davis opted out of his commitment to the Aggies.
Davis announced his decommitment on Twitter, saying:
“I want to Thank Texas A&M and the coaching staff for giving me the opportunity (sic) to be to play for a great program and further my education. I feel like I made my decision too early, it is best that I reopen my recruitment and make sure I choose the best college for me. I’m sure the coaching staff will understand and also everyone that is supporting my decision. It is not an easy decision but I am officially Decommitting from Texas A&M University. I will be taking all 5 of my official visits and will make my final decision after I take all of my visits.”
