On Wednesday, Fort Bend Kempner offensive guard Akinola Ogunbiyi announced his decommitment from the Texas A&M Aggies:
THANK YOU TEXAS A&M!!!!!— AKI ® (@AkinolaOgunbiyi) March 6, 2019

The 6’4, 310-pounder committed to the Aggies last June on the same day that he received his offer from the Longhorns and several days after visiting College Station.
Since then, he’s taken multiple visits to other schools, including a visit to Austin for the Junior Day last month. Last October, Ogunbiyi told Burnt Orange Nation’s Joe Hamilton that he was interested in Texas and in contact with co-offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Herb Hand.
However, the most important recent visit that Ogunbiyi took was to Oklahoma in late February. While on that visit, Ogunbiyi was photographed making the horns down hand sign as 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions flowed in for the Sooners.
So, since Texas now has three offensive line commitments in the 2020 class and remaining targets like Chad Lindberg and Dameion George considering the Longhorns, it’s unlikely that Ogunbiyi is still a significant target.
And if the Crystal Ball predictions bear out, Texas can expect to face off against Ogunbiyi in the Cotton Bowl in coming years.
