Mastrogiovanni Switches Pledge

The Texas A&M coaching staff is continuing to put the finishing touches on a large 2013 recruiting class. On Sunday, the Aggies added one of the top middle linebackers in the state of Texas. Aggie Websider's David Sandhop has the latest on this newest commit.

The Texas A&M coaching staff continues to fine tune the largely full 2013 recruiting class in the final weeks before signing day. With the decommit earlier in the day from Cedar Hill receiver Quincy Adeboyejo, the Aggies had a spot to offer Dallas Jesuit linebacker Jordan Mastrogiovanni. It was an offer he couldn't refuse.

"Yessir, I committed to A&M," Mastrogiovanni said via text Sunday evening.

After Texas A&M's surprising 11-2 record in its inaugural SEC campaign, the coaching staff has seen renewed interest from several recruiting targets that chose other programs during the past spring and summer. However, the successful run through the SEC even surprised the A&M staff as they filled up the 2013 class prior to the start of the season, anticipating a rougher ride in the fall.

Mastrogiovanni was one of those recruits that inquired about Texas A&M's availability in the 2013 class in recent weeks. But, there were no spots available at the time. That changed on Sunday with the departure of Adeboyejo, and the 6-foot-2, 230-pound middle linebacker took the vacated spot when offered after decommitting from the Oklahoma Sooners.

The Aggie Websider will have more from the Aggies' latest addition in the coming days.
