4-star OT Connor Lanfear flips from Texas Longhorns to Texas A&M Aggies


The Texas A&M Aggies earned a big recruit and stole one from their (former) arch rivals, the Texas Longhorns in the process.

4-star offensive tackle Connor Lanfear flipped his committed from Texas to Texas A&M on Saturday after taking an unofficial visit to College Station Friday.

“The moment I tell coach Sumlin today that I’m going to be an Aggie and give my pledge will be the moment of my life to this point,” Lanfear told 24/7 Sports. “I’ll hold that memory for the rest of my life.”

“The environment at A&M fits me so perfectly. I grew up a good ol’ boy and just the environment around the community, the degree plans, the way everyone in the town treats the football players and student athletes, plus A&M being in the SEC and having such awesome coaches, and the recent history of offensive lineman going to the next level – all those things combined made it a perfect fit.”

The 6’5.5, 285-pounder from Buda, Texas is ranked as the 21st best offensive tackle prospect, 32nd best overall prospect in the state of Texas and 203rd best overall prospect in the class of 2015 according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.

Lanfear also held offers from the Florida State Seminoles, Miami Hurricanes and Oklahoma Sooners, among others.
