Top 2019 QB Grant Gunnell de-commits from Texas A&M; remains major target for Oklahoma State, TCU

Grant Gunnell-TCU-Oklahoma State-TCU recruiting-Oklahoma State recruiting

Four-star 2019 quarterback Grant Gunnell, one of the top targets for both Oklahoma State and TCU, de-committed from Texas A&M on Tuesday night.

Gunnell committed to the Aggies in June 2017, but he had been considering other options since Kevin Sumlin was fired in November. He’s now officially back on the market, and the Cowboys and Horned Frogs will be among a horde of programs trying to win his signature.

Oklahoma State was the first Power 5 team to offer Gunnell back in May 2016. According to 247Sports’ Brian Perroni, Gunnell is expected to visit Stillwater “in the near future.” The Houston (Texas) St. Pius X prospect attended a Junior Day at TCU in January and took an unofficial visit to Fort Worth in October.

Gunnell reportedly holds offers from Alabama, Baylor, Florida State, Georgia, LSU and Michigan, among others. His de-commitment came on the same day that he received an offer from Ohio State.

Both Oklahoma State and TCU have recruited well at quarterback over the past few years. The Cowboys signed the reigning Texas Player of the Year in December with Spencer Sanders, and TCU has signed two 4-star passers in Shawn Robinson and Justin Rogers in the past two classes. It’s not clear if the quarterback depth at either school would be a deterrent for Gunnell.

Gunnell is currently ranked as the No. 2 pro-style quarterback and the No. 49 overall prospect in the country in the 247Sports Composite. He threw for 4,936 yards, 61 touchdowns and 6 interceptions in 12 games in 2017.
