Addison Says He's Still Committed To OSU

The Internet is burning up with stories that Texas A&M scored a trifecta of commitments during Saturday's spring game day, including the switch of Missouri City (HIghtower), Texas speedster Bralon Addison from his previous pledge to Oklahoma State. But Addison said Sunday afternoon that the Aggies got two commitments but not three because he didn't switch.

"I was there with Matt Davis (Klein Forest quarterback) and Trey (Williams-Dekaney running back) and I guess A&M people may have been confused," said Addison. "We took a picture together and that could have caused the wrong idea. I didn't switch."

The 5-10, 187-pound Addison is one of the fastest players in Texas and has the potential to be a difference maker in a lot of spots on the football field including special teams too.

Last season he played primarily quarterback and put up some impressive numbers with 1,068 rushing yards on 144 carries. He averaged 7.4 yards per carry and scored 15 touchdowns on the ground. He completed 118 of 199 passes for 1,858 yards and threw only three interceptions while connecting for 28 touchdowns.

He is also a standout on the basketball court and could have played college basketball. At Oklahoma State he has talked about starting out as a wide receiver.

As for his recruiting, where his father has had him making some additional visits to schools since he committed to Oklahoma State earlier in February, Addison says he is close to, if not, being finished.

"I think I'm done," he said. "The only other place I might go check out is Arkansas. I'm not doing track (this spring) and this summer I will work out and do this summer track thing. I am going to the Nike Camp on the UH (Houston) campus."

Addison said the Aggies spring game was entertaining and said it was like a lot of college towns, but he did say he is still committed to Oklahoma State and he doesn't expect that to change.
