Texas A&M continued its recent excellent run of commitments by grabbing former wide receiver commit Kyrion Parker.

The 6 ft 3, nearly-200 lb player  from Texas had previously committed to LSU before de-committing to play for Sumlin instead.

“I just loved the coaching staff there,” Parker reportedly told 247sports.com in an interview. “Coach Sumlin is a great guy. He’s a down-to-earth coach and he’s funny. It was so welcoming there and I just love the program.”

“Plus the way they run their offense, I think my game fits perfectly into that spread. I also really wanted to play in the SEC because that’s where the best competition is and that’s where you’re going to get better at.”

Parker’s reason for de-committing from LSU was simple: home. He told ESPN’s recruiting site on June 15: “I just didn’t know if LSU was the right fit for me. I wanted to stay closer to my family. A lot of people say when you’re in college, you’re going to need someone to fall back on. That’s really it; I wanted to be closer to family.”

Parker had also had an offer from Mississippi State.
