Five-star linebacker Harold Perkins announces he has decommited from Texas A&M

Five-star linebacker Harold Perkins announced Monday that he has decommitted from Texas A&M.

Perkins, the No. 1 linebacker in the 2022 class and the No. 4 overall prospect in the country (according to the 247Sports Composite Rating), announced the news on Instagram. He initially committed to the Aggies during the Under Armour All-American Game on Jan. 2 but maintained then that he intended to take visits to other campuses before February signing day. Perkins recently took a visit to Florida, and has an official visit to LSU scheduled, as well as in-home visits with both schools. He also told last week that he is considering a visit to Miami.

Perkins said in his announcement that he’ll make a final decision on Feb. 2.  He said in a statement: “This has been one of the hardest decisions to make, but I will be decommitting from Texas A&M and will announce my decision Feb. 2 at my school.”
