DaMarkus Lodge has decided to decommit from A&M and visit other schools. While A&M still remains an option, the 4-star wide receiver wants to make sure that he spends his college years at the right school. There are a couple of reasons that he may be opening up his commitment.
First of all, he has not yet taken advantage of being one of the nation’s top wide receivers. Currently listed as the 5th best in the nation and the #1 receiver in Texas, Lodge holds scholarship offers from nearly every major program in the nation. By opening up his recruitment, he will be able to visit several different schools and campuses and gain some amazing experiences in the process. As of now, it appears that he is interested in visiting LSU, Ole Miss, Oklahoma, and Baylor. By seeing those different schools, he will be able to compare it to his visits to Aggieland to determine whether College Station is the best fit for him.
Secondly, and probably more importantly, the Aggies boast one of the top wide receiver groups in the nation. It is also one of the youngest groups in the nation led by true freshman Speedy Noil and Redshirt freshman Ricky Seals-Jones. And with the emergence of Josh Reynolds and Edward Pope, the starting lineup for 2015 looks rather daunting for an incoming freshman to crack. Not that DaMarkus is shying away from competition, but perhaps he wishes to be able to be the top receiver at his college of choice.
Hopefully, Lodge gets to really enjoy these upcoming recruiting visits and when all is said and done picks the good guys again.
