On Wednesday night, the 6-foot-4, 247-pound prospect officially decommitted from the Seminoles, he confirmed via text message.

"I never got a chance to look around [the whole campus]," said Davis, who visited Aggieland for the Maroon-and-White spring game in April.

Arizona State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Texas are the other programs who have offered Davis thus far. He originally committed to Florida State on March 19.

Last month, Davis said getting a Texas A&M offer would be a "game-changer" in his recruitment, citing the Aggies' proximity to his home, their membership in the SEC and their recent success. He landed an offer for them Sunday night after his camp performance.
