What is shaping up to be another strong signing class for Texas A&M and coach Kevin Sumlin took a hit on Monday, as four-star defensive end commit Mark Jackson flipped to Oklahoma, according to Brian Perroni of GigEm247.
A 6-foot-2, 221-pound prospect from Steele High School (Cibolo, Texas), Jackson originally pledged himself to the Aggies in May. But “constant contact” with Sooners recruiters coupled with a final official visit to Norman, Okla., this past weekend persuaded the talented recruit to change course just two days before National Signing Day.
With the loss of Jackson, who rates as the No. 14 weakside defensive end in the nation, Texas A&M is down to 18 commitments for the Class of 2016, including two other defensive ends (four-star Justin Madubuike and three-star Alton Robinson). The signing class ranks 20th nationally and seventh in the SEC.
