According to Gigem247, Tyrie Cleveland has decommitted from Texas A&M. The 4-star pass catcher gave his verbal pledge to the Aggies last October. However, he has decided to open up his recruiting process.
“I’m still considering Texas A&M and they’re a school I can see myself at. I just want to open things up right now.”
If there’s one position the Aggies can afford to a lose a commit to, it is at wide receiver. While Cleveland is very talented and will hopefully find that A&M is the best place for him, the Aggies have just 1 senior in their entire 3 deep at the 4 wide receiver positions. For a reference, below is a snapshot of the projected depth chart following spring camp.

Sumlin has recruited incredibly well at this position the past several years. In 2013, he stole coveted 5-star WR Ricky Seals-Jones from Texas. The following year, he dipped into Louisiana and came back with the top WR in the country in Speedy Noil. Then this past recruiting class, he claimed the most polished 5-star of the bunch in Christian Kirk from Arizona. Those three along with Josh Reynolds, the JUCO steal of the decade, make for one of the most formidable wide receiver groups in the nation.
It’s reasonable that Cleveland wants to take a good long look at other school’s during this process. Playing time won’t be handed out and that starting group isn’t going anywhere following the 2015 season. Whether Cleveland rejoins the Aggies or not, don’t expect recruiting at that position to drop off. The nation’s best will continue to come to College Station to play for one of the best offensive minds and some of the most skilled quarterbacks at the college level.
