Texas A&M's whirlwind week on the recruiting trail continued this week with the commitment of 3-star tight end/defensive end Camron Horry of Katy, Texas.
Horry picked the Aggies over LSU and Houston, among others.
The 6'5", 261-pounder has impressive bloodlines, being the son of longtime NBA star Robert Horry, aka "Big Shot Bob," a seven-time NBA champion.
Horry explained why he chose the Aggies, per Taylor Hamm of 247Sports.
I've been thinking about it a lot lately and I felt like A&M was the best fit for me long term, not just for football. Honestly, it was the Aggie network and how big it is. Even if I go to the pros and play for four or five years, I'm still going to need a job. I know that won't be a problem if I go there. They are so helpful. Plus, I like how they want to use me. They want me to be a blocking tight end but also one who can go out and catch the ball. They have big plans for me. I know a lot of colleges say that but I actually believe what they are saying.
Horry, by his own admission, expects to be on the offensive side of the ball at the next level. He already possesses great size and strength and the frame to add even more weight. His natural athleticism should keep him at tight end and he could have an opportunity to contribute early once he arrives in College Station.
Since last weekend's BBQ event held for potential recruits, the Aggies have pulled in three talented commitments at three different positions. Horry is A&M's 13th commitment to the class of 2017, moving them up to 13th in 247Sports' current class rankings.
