Three high school recruits of the 2017 class have decommited to Texas A&M after a status on Twitter from receivers coach Aaron Moorehead. Tate Martell, 3rd rank dual high school quarterback, announced he was reopening his recruiting after a discussion with his family. He tweeted: “After talking with my family about what is best for my future, I have decided to reopen my recruiting process.”
Moorehead then tweeted shortly after that: “I feel sorry for ppl who never understand loyalty. I can’t really even vibe with u. At the end of the day trust is 💯 & everything else is BS”. Chaos started on Twitter as it seemed his tweet was towards the high school quarterback. He then tweeted that his status was not towards him: “I wasn’t even talking about who everyone thinks I’m talking about. I didn’t even know #badtiming #relevanttho #stillnoloyalty”.
Many did not believe him including two other top recruits. Wide receiver Mannie Netherly, ranked in ESPN’s top 300, decommitted and referenced his “future coach” Twitter post according to ESPN. Then Tyjon Lindsey, another receiver in ESPN’s Top 300, said goodbye to the Aggies as well due to coach’s comments:
“I would like to say thank you to TAMU & fans but due to some tweets subtweeted towards my brother, I will no longer be looking at A&M.”.
Moorehead continued his Twitter rant:
People act like the truth is all the sudden a bad thing. Society is too sensitive. Y’all boys soft. #texastough
I love Texas A&M football. I guard it and respect it with my life. I don’t take that lightly day to day
