Just weeks removed from announcing his decommitment from Texas A&M, Fort Bend Kempner offensive guard Akinola Ogunbiyi has shifted his focus to a group of Power 5 programs.
On Wednesday evening, the four-star prospect dropped a list of his top six schools that he’ll be mainly interested in the rest of his recruitment. Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Texas A&M were all named in Ogunbiyi’s list.
Unfortunately for the Longhorns, they didn’t make the cut.

Ogunbiyi earned an offer from Texas the same exact day that he decided to make his verbal pledge to the Aggies in June.
This past season, Burnt Orange Nation spoke with Ogunbiyi and he implied that he still had interest in Texas and that he had been in contact with co-offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Herb Hand.
The Longhorns have made great strides on the recruiting trail so far this cycle, particularly on the offensive line with three commitments at the moment and in strong position to land guys like Chad Lindberg and Dameion George.
Unless the Longhorns coaching staff feels that it is necessary to jump back in the mix for the 6’4, 310-pounder, things between Texas and Ogunbiyi are likely over.
