Greg Little, the top-rated offensive tackle and the No. 2 overall player in the ESPN 300 for 2016, confirmed to ESPN on Monday that he's decommitted from Texas A&M, where he'd been pledged for over a year.
The ship jumping comes less than a week after he told AL.com that he was "solid" with the Aggies.
That's good news for Nick Saban more than anybody. Rumors swirled around Little last week at The Opening camp that he was on the verge of flipping to Bama, and that's where the latest 247Sports Crystal Ball projections have him landing.
But Ole Miss is on his radar -- he's visited Tuscaloosa and Oxford this summer.
"I have already been to Alabama and Ole Miss this summer," Little said last week. "They are two good schools. I like them a lot. I'm going to try to visit both schools again and try to get a better feel for both schools. I don't have any other visits set in stone, but I am trying to go to Auburn and to Ohio State by the time summer ends. I have a good relationship with both of those coaching staffs, so I just want to check out both schools."
Little, The Opening's OL MVP, will be making a return trip to Oxford this weekend with teammate and fellow Opening alum Jaylon Jones. The four-star defensive back really likes the Rebs and has already stated that if he enjoys his time, he just might pull the trigger. Could this influence the big fella as well?
Hugh Freeze could use the tackle help. Laremy Tunsil will be gone after the
NCAA kicks him out for cheatin 2016 NFL Draft and the Rebs missed out on his long term replacement when five-star Drew Richmond flipped to Tennessee the week of National Signing Day back in February.
Nabbing Little to watch Shea Patterson's blind side for three years wouldn't be a bad deal, y'all.
