When ESPNU 150 Watch List defensive end Christian Lacouture (College Station, Texas/A&M Consolidated) committed to Texas A&M in late January 2011, he did so because of the coaching staff.

Kevin Sumlin, however, was not the head coach at the time. Mike Sherman was. Lacouture has yet to really get to know the new A&M staff, and he felt his commitment was something of a disservice to A&M and other schools interested until he had a chance to further bond with that acquaintanceship.

Lacouture decommitted from A&M on Friday but said the Aggies still are high on his list. The 6-foot-5, 260-pound defensive end also said that Michigan, LSU and Missouri -- three schools who have offered -- are in the hunt, as well.
