Texas A&M lost its biggest commitment Monday evening, when five-star offensive tackle Greg Little backed off his pledge to the Aggies, Little confirmed to ESPN.com.
Little, who had been committed to Texas A&M for more than a year, is the No. 1-ranked offensive tackle and the No. 2 player overall in the 2016 ESPN 300.
Little made his decision just six days after claiming he was a "soft commitment" while at The Opening football camp in Beaverton, Oregon. A 6-foot-6, 290-pound lineman from Allen (Texas) High School, he has already visited Alabama and Ole Miss this summer and has tentative plans to visit Ohio State and Auburn before summer's end.
"I have already been to Alabama and Ole Miss this summer," Little said last week. "They are two good schools. I like them a lot. I'm going to try to visit both schools again and try to get a better feel for both schools. I don't have any other visits set in stone, but I am trying to go to Auburn and to Ohio State by the time summer ends. I have a good relationship with both of those coaching staffs, so I just want to check out both schools."
Little, an Under Armour All-American, was the left tackle at Allen for quarterback Kyler Murray, who was a five-star prospect last year before signing with the Aggies in February.
Although Little doesn't have an official list of schools he is considering, he does have more than 25 offers and said he would like to make his final decision Nov. 4, which is his birthday.
Texas A&M now has 13 verbal commitments, including five ranked in the ESPN 300. The Aggies have two other offensive line commitments, Austin Anderson and Colton Prater, but neither player is considered to be a tackle prospect.
