SAN ANTONIO, Texas — Ross Blacklock is down to three schools on the eve of his decision.
The four-star defensive tackle from Missouri City, Texas, will decide between Texas A&M, TCU and Houston on Saturday during the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Regardless of which school he chooses, he still intends on taking an official visit to TCU on Jan. 22.
Blacklock, who recently removed LSU from his list of top schools, is considered a heavy lean to TCU, as a majority of 247Sports’ Crystal Ball predictions peg him committing to the Horned Frogs.
But it would appear the Aggies are also in good standing with the 6-foot-4, 314-pound senior, who took an official visit to College Station on Dec. 11 and received an in-home visit from coach Kevin Sumlin the week prior.
Blacklock says Sumlin and staff have pitched to him the idea of lining up next to former five-star defensive tackle Daylon Mack. He would play either the one, two or three-technique, as opposed to what he played at Elkins High School.
“As long as I blow stuff up, it’s fine,” Blacklock said.
Blacklock is rated as the No. 28 defensive tackle in the country, per the 247Sports’ Composite Rankings.
