The impressive early group of defensive backs committed to the Texas A&M Aggies in the 2019 recruiting class took a hit on Tuesday evening when Houston Madison cornerback Bobby Wolfe decommitted:

Perhaps Wolfe could make the same choice as fellow Houston-area defensive back Leon O’Neal did in the 2018 class and recommit to the Aggies — he’s certainly leaving that option open — but for now, the 6’2, 180-pounder is officially back on the market.
Interestingly enough, O’Neal had tweeted his thoughts on the future for A&M not long before Wolfe went public with his decision.

Noted Twitter user Tim Brewster, fellow outspoken SEC advocate who also spends time recruiting for Texas A&M, didn’t immediately offer any thoughts advocating for Wolfe to play for any of the other seven conference schools officially involved in Wolfe’s recruitment.
We suppose that’s only mildly surprising given his strong affection for the nation’s best college football conference.
He did have an unrelated thought on trust on Tuesday, though.

Thanks, Coach. We’ll be sure to check in with you at some point in the future for more fire takes from #TheStation and, of course, SEC cheerleading.
Wolfe originally joined the nation’s No. 1 safety, Brian Williams, in committing to the Aggies back in early February, before National Signing Day, but his pledge lasted just a little more than a month.
A Junior Day produced Wolfe’s decision while in the #TheStation about a week after the Aggies offered, marking as well the second pledge for Wolfe, who was committed to Ole Miss for several months last summer.
“I just want to open my recruiting back up and enjoy the process a little more,” Wolfe told GigEm247. “I feel like I closed it too fast.”
The consensus four-star prospect is a national recruit with close to 30 offers, including one from the Longhorns, who could well receive consideration from Wolfe as he moves forward with his recruiting process.
Whether or not Wolfe decides to visit Austin in the coming weeks could help determine the likelihood of Texas emerging as a contender for his services.
One of the fastest-rising prospects in the Lone Star State since late December, Wolfe is ranked as the No. 197 prospect nationally, the No. 18 cornerback, and the No. 26 player in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
