Man of few words knows what he wants

Aggie hoops coach Mark Turgeon pulled off quite the commitment just a few weeks ago after David Loubeau took an unofficial visit to A&M. After an official visit this weekend for the Oklahoma State game, how firm is his commitment? Aggie Websider visits with the blue-chip recruit.

In September, Coach Mark Turgeon and the new Texas A&M staff pulled off a major coup when Westlake Prep (FL) forward David Loubeau returned from an unofficial visit to the Lone Star state and verbally committed to the Aggies.

The 6-foot-9, 215-pound four-star prospect, rated No. 78 nationally by Scout.com, made a return trip to College Station on his official visit this past weekend. Loubeau was able to take in his first Texas A&M football game on his visit, a 24-23 nailbiter that went down to the wire. That unique game atmosphere certainly caught his attention.

"It exceeded my expectations," Loubeau said. "The crowd and the fans were incredible, it was electric. I'm looking forward to playing in front of the A&M fans."

Along with experiencing the 12th Man, Loubeau mentioned the time hanging out with his future teammates was the highlight of his trip.

"I had a great time with the team. I felt comfortable with them," Loubeau said. "I spent a lot of time with Deandre Jordan, Bryan Davis, Denzell Bowles, and Joe Jones."

Asked if the official visit solidified his commitment to the Texas A&M program, Loubeau was short but very clear about his intentions.

"I will sign with A&M next month," Loubeau said.

He may not be a man of many words, but he knows what he wants—to play for Coach Turgeon and the Texas Aggies.
