Coaching changes are always a part of the recruiting process, and can unfortunately throw a wrench into a prospect's process. That was the case for defensive lineman Christian Lacouture (College Station, Texas/A&M Consolidated), who had been committed to Texas A&M for quite some time.

The Aggies staff was let go, and Kevin Sumlin was brought in as the new head man. That changed things for Lacouture and his commitment.

"When I committed to Texas A&M about a year ago, I committed in January 2011, I was very solid," he said. "But with the coaching change I didn't think it was right to stay committed while I was taking visits. It would be better for me to do it this way, and get to know them and some other programs better."
