RECRUITING: Aggie commit will visit OU

Tyler, Texas WR Tyrell Gatewood says he's still committed to A&M, but will take other visits


JH: Are you playing basketball right now?

TG: "Yes, I am playing basketball right now and I am playing pretty well. I play forward for our squad. Last year I averaged 16 points per game, but so far this year I am not sure what I am averaging."

JH: How did the firing of R.C. Slocum effect your decision to go to Texas A&M?

TG: "It has made me second guess it and I am thinking everything all over again. To be honest, it makes me mad that I have to think things over again, but that is the situation and I have to make the best of it."

JH: Will you take other visits now?

TG: "I am going to take my visits now. I will visit Texas and Oklahoma for sure. I may visit LSU as well. I was going to visit Texas A&M this weekend, but that was before I talked to Coach Slocum and found out what happened to him. I am a little upset that Coach Slocum was fired because I went through a coaching change this year before my senior year."

JH: What is your visit schedule?

TG: "I am going to Texas Friday and then to Oklahoma the following weekend. I think highly of Oklahoma because I like how they throw the ball and I love their program. I think the same thing of Texas pretty much."

JH: Should we still consider you a commitment to Texas A&M?

TG: "I haven't talked to Coach Franchione yet. I don't want to say I am not a commitment to Texas A&M until I get a chance to talk to him and meet the coaches."
