Texas A&M suffers its first decommitment in the wake of the Jimbo Fisher hire


Texas A&M has suffered its first decommitment since announcing its hiring of former Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher.

Four-star safety Leon O'Neal Jr., announced his decision to decommit from the Aggies on Friday via Twitter.

"I do not stand 100% with the coaching change as of now," said O'Neal, who has been committed to the Aggies since June.

The Cypress, Texas native ranks as the No. 7 safety and No. 78 overall prospect for the 2018 national recruiting cycle, according to the 247Sports Composite.


O'Neal has received offers from 33 schools and has Oklahoma and Clemson listed among his favorites alongside the Aggies, according to 247Sports.

Fisher agreed to a deal with Texas A&M on Friday, as first reported by Wayne McGahee of the Tallahassee Democrat.

Fisher will take the position immediately and not coach in Florida State's regular season finale against Louisiana-Monroe.

Former head coach Kevin Sumlin was fired by A&M last Sunday afternoon.


Sumlin finished his tenure with a 51-26 record (25-23 in the SEC).
