Allen offensive tackleÂ Greg Little, the No.Â 2 overall recruit for the class of 2016, decommitted from Texas A&M on Monday.
This comes less than a week after competing at the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, OR at “The Opening.” Little was outstanding in the professional-like training program and was awarded the Offensive Lineman MVP for his efforts.
The news was announced around 5 p.m.Â on an article by national recruiting analyst Damon Sayles on Bleacher Report.
In the article, Little’s mother explains the reason behind the change of heart.
“At the time he committed, he knew that was the place he wanted to be,” Little’s mother explained regarding Texas A&M. “Fast-forward [to now], he felt it was too early in the process to commit. Because this is such a life-changing event, he feels he has to go through the recruiting process to evaluate where he wants to go.”
After the decommitment, a lot of schools will be circling Little’s name on their recruiting whiteboard.
A LOT. 27 schools to be exact, have offered the lineman a scholarship.
Of those 27, Alabama seems to be the front-runner to land the 6-6 310 pound recruit. Little visited the Tide on June 9th of this year and announced his plans for a second visit this past week.
In all Little has visited Ole Miss, Texas, Oklahoma (Junior Day), Texas A&M, LSU, and Alabama.
247sports.com lists Alabama as a 57% favorite to land Little whiles the Aggies are listed at 33%.
Little and his Allen Eagles will open the season on August 28th against QB Shawn Robinson and the Denton Guyer Wildcats in the newly re-opened Eagle Stadium.
