Is the third time the charm?

Rockaway (N.J.) Lackawanna College offensive tackle Jermaine Eluemunor flipped his commitment from Arkansas to Texas A&M on Monday afternoon, continuing the strong momentum the Aggies have built recently on the recruiting trail.

Eluemunor, a 6-foot-5, 300-pound prospect who is originally from England, chose the Aggies after an official visit over the weekend as Texas A&M hosted Vanderbilt. It is the third team Eluemunor has committed to in his recruiting process, originally choosing UCLA on June 9 before switching to the Razorbacks on July 26.


The Aggies long have been on the hunt for a junior college offensive tackle to help add depth at the position. Texas A&M currently has two upperclassmen starting at the position: senior Jake Matthews at left tackle and junior Cedric Ogbuehi at right tackle.

Eluemunor, who was recruited by offensive line coach B.J. Anderson, can help bridge the gap to the three high school tackles the Aggies currently have committed in their 2014 class -- Kealvin Davis, Zachary Ledwik and Koda Martin -- if he can develop quickly enough.

A host of power programs offered Eluemunor, including Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Ohio State, Oklahoma and USC. He is the Aggies' 17th commitment in the 2014 class and the fourth commitment, regardless of classification, in the last 10 days, joining defensive ends Myles Garrett, Qualen Cunningham and 2015 defensive tackle Daylon Mack.

Eluemunor emigrated to the United States from London in 2009 with little football knowledge or experience. He didn't become a starter on his high school football team until his senior season. In the aftermath, Eluemunor went from unrecruited high school prospect to one of the most heavily recruited junior college offensive tackles, with more than 20 scholarship offers, in the span of about a year.

Eluemunor announced via Twitter that he's shutting down the recruiting process.
