In a recruiting stunner, four-star DT Bobby Brown flips away from Alabama Bobby Brown/Twitter

Four-star Bobby Brown (6-foot-4, 282 pounds, Arlington, TX) committed to Alabama back in December, which came after being committed to Texas A&M for almost two months.

On Wednesday’s National Signing Day, Brown made a stunning move, flipping back to Texas A&M and signing with the Aggies.

From 247Sports:

“The main thing was that I finally realized that nobody’s going to play one down for me. I had to make a decision solely for me,” Brown said. “I just took it all to heart and basically made a business decision on where I wanted to play.

“I know where my heart is.”

The move is a much-needed recruiting pickup for new A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher. The school fell behind in recruiting after switching from Kevin Sumlin to Fisher, but now it looks like Fisher is starting to hit a bit of a groove in recruiting at his new school, and getting Brown back in the fold is a big win for the future of Texas A&M’s defense.

Brown is now one of Texas A&M’s five highest-rated commitments for the 2018 class. He is ranked as the No. 17 defensive tackle in the nation by the 247Sports Composite.
