LA DB Floyd Raven to Texas A&M..Wait...Maybe Not? (Updated)

Submitted by DGDestroys on January 24th, 2011 at 6:48 PM

From TAMU's Rivals Twitter

Lose one 4 star (Willingham) add another: Reserve La. East St. John DB Floyd Raven has committed to Texas A&M.

Coulda been an early-impact guy at safety...oh well. 

EDIT: Maybe not...?

East St. John 3-star safety Floyd Raven told me he did not commit to Texas A&M, despite reports saying otherwise

Despite reports Louisiana DB Floyd Raven confirms to Scout.com he has not committed to Texas A&M.

Given that it wasn't clear that he was ever going to get to Ann Arbor for a visit, this isn't that big of a surprise.   It will hurt more if McClure doesn't go blue.

Does anyone know if he'll still visit?

If we can (I'm pretty sure) take leilon willingham from tamu we can take raven.

Oh, and has anybody thought about how awesome Leilon Willingham's name is?

It may just be me, but I'm not really against trading TAMU Raven for Willingham.. Seems like we need the LB more at this point, but it's still too bad. He could've been a big time player for us. Hopefully McClure comes, though

I would agree with you, but it seems like the staff is done recruiting DB's.

Raven is better than some of the guys we already have committed, but the staff chose to honor our prior commitments. If we still want room for a QB, DT, RB, and OLineman, we can't really take any more commits outside of these positions.

Bob Lichtenfels (?) reports that East St. John 3-star safety Floyd Raven told him that he did not commit to Texas A&M, despite reports saying otherwise.

Both Ole Miss rivals/scout sites are reporting that it's a rumor.. wouldn't be surprised if it happens though, A&M has been on Raven for a while, even while he was committed to Ole Miss.
