Four star defensive line prospect Damian Square from Houston Yates High School made it official for the second time when the former Texas A&M commit announced on a local television sports talk show that he will play his college ball at Alabama. The Aggie Websider spoke to Square shortly before the announcement Saturday.
"It looks like I'm going on the road to Alabama. It's about the program history and Coach Saban won't take long to get the program competing for national championships."
Square's final choice came down to the Crimson Tide and the home state Aggies. So what pushed the 6-foot-3, 265-pound defensive line prospect to choose Alabama over Texas A&M?
"It's nothing against A&M. They were my first love," Square said. "I just see a better opportunity at Alabama. Maybe A&M will get it done, but I know Coach Saban and Alabama will get it done."
The Houston native has gone back and forth throughout the recruiting process since committing to Texas A&M back in early February following a junior day visit to College Station, but he indicated his recruitment may end today with his announcement.
"I think I'm through with recruiting," Square said. "I'm happy with my choice and I'm looking forward to my senior season."
