When Oklahoma University looked for a replacement for Lincoln Riley, they wanted a defensive mind. They got one of the best in Brent Venables. But for Gabriel Brownlow-Dindy, it didn’t matter.

The talented defensive tackle came down to Texas A&M and Oklahoma in October before committing to the Sooners as was largely expected. His family had ties to the Sooners and OU had been the presumptive favorite for a long time before A&M made things interesting.

When Riley left for USC and Venables was announced, Dindy didn’t stick around long enough to get to know the new coach. He de-committed from the Sooners Monday night and immediately flipped to the Aggies.

Dindy is A&M’s 21st commit and moves the Aggies to second in the Rivals rankings. He is Monday’s second commit and the second commit from out-of-state in a Texas-heavy class. Still, he will have ties to Aggieland as his family is moving to College Station this year.
