It didn't take long for Class of 2015 Whitehouse (TX) product Justin Dunning to find a place to play his collegiate football. After a second visit to Texas A&M this fall to watch the Aggies defeat the Mississippi State Bulldogs, the elite safety decided it was time to make a decision.

"Happy to say I just committed to Texas A&M University," said Dunning via Twitter on Sunday. "Glad to be part of the Aggie family."

The 6-foot-4, 200-pound safety became one of the elite prospects in the state of Texas after a promising sophomore campaign followed by several offseason combine performances that left recruiting analysts amazed by his combination of size, speed, and overall athleticism. He registered a 4.41 forty in the offseason along with a vertical jump near 40 inches.

That rare blend of athleticism at such a young age attracted early scholarship offers from every major collegiate program in Texas along with national programs such as Florida State, Notre Dame, and Oklahoma before he even took a snap his junior season.

Scout.com football recruiting analyst Greg Powers ranked Dunning the No.6 2015 prospect in the state of Texas in his preseason rankings. However, Dunning unfortunately suffered a season-ending ACL knee injury early in the 2013 campaign. He's currently rehabbing the knee but is expected to make a full recovery for his senior season in 2014.

Dunning becomes the fifth verbal commit for the Aggies in the 2015 class, and all five are four or five-star prospects according to Scout.com.
