Nelson switches commitment from Aggies to OU

Oklahoma got a huge late commitment when linebacker Corey Nelson changed a long-term commitment to Texas A&M to come to the Sooners.

Nelson had commented as recently as the weekend that he was a solid commitment for the Aggies.

But he changed his mind since then and will come to Oklahoma, where he appears to be in line with the productive outside linebackers that Bob Stoops has produced during his tenure.

Nelson, a 6-foot-1, 210-pounder who was a three-time all-state selection at Dallas Skyline High School, would be the among the top recruits in the Sooners' class.

It would also represent a devastating loss to Mike Sherman's recruiting class.
