Texas A&M suffers decommitment from 4-star defensive lineman
Texas A&M suffered a loss to its 2023 recruiting class on Sunday when a 4-star defensive lineman withdrew his commitment.
Anthony James, a 6-foot-5 and 245-pound recruit out of Wylie, Texas (Wylie East), announced the news on social media. He has a reported 23 offers, according to 247Sports. He is the No. 16 defensive lineman in this class, and the No. 23 player in the state of Texas.
“There are no assumptions to be made, and no conclusions to be drawn,” he wrote. “I will spend the summer traveling the country and exploring the vast opportunities afforded to me in this once in a lifetime process.”
Projected to be a Power-5 starter, here is some of James’ scouting report from 247Sports:
Measuring in at 6-foot-4 and half along with weighing 248-pounds these are very promising numbers for an emerging player. The 80-inch wingspan, 10- inch hand and size 16 shoes speak to the growth potential that will come as he matures and develops in the weight room once he gets to college. With a good frame that has good development already for a highschool prospect. He is more developed right now in his lower body where you have good definition in his legs. As he hits the weights in his upper body you should see good mass and defined muscles in that area.
