Outside linebacker Brandon Mahoney has decommitted from an earlier pledge from Oklahoma to choose an offer from Texas Tech, ESPN's Billy Tucker reports.

Mahoney becomes the third commit that Texas Tech has plucked away from Oklahoma so far, but potentially the biggest. Tucker is ranked as the nation's No. 13 prospect at outside linebacker, according to ESPN Scouts Inc.

Mahoney, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound linebacker, also considered Arizona, Kansas, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M.
