"I am going to verbally commit to be an Aggie," Seals-Jones said during a press conference at his high school with his father Chester and mother Buffy by his side.

The announcement came two days after Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel won the Heisman -- the first ever freshman to win the award -- and it makes Texas A&M the current No. 1 in's 2013 recruiting class rankings.

For Seals-Jones, it marks the latest turn in an interesting recruiting process.

After an early decision in February to sign with Texas, Seals-Jones decomitted from the program in June to take a look at other schools.

Schools like Oregon, UCLA, Baylor and others were rumored to make a push, but it was the SEC's Texas A&M and LSU which emerged as the leaders.

As a junior in 2011, Seals-Jones starred on both sides of the ball for Sealy and was named District MVP after racking up over 1,000 yards of offense and scoring 17 touchdowns.

He has been named to the 2012 U.S. Army All-American Team.

A multi-talented player, Jones plays both ways in high school and rarely leaves the field. He has the frame to go up over the top of defenders and make plays vertically down the field.

He is also an effective possession weapon and can bust off shorter routes and use his frame to haul in the ball and keep moving the chains. He has some leaping ability and is built to use on fade routes in the red-zone.
