For all of his life, ESPN Watch List safety Dylan Sumner-Gardner (Mesquite, Texas/West Mesquite) knew what he wanted to do. He wanted to play college football for Clemson and follow in the footsteps of his all-time favorite football player, Brian Dawkins.

When Sumner-Gardner picked up the offer in June, he immediately gave Clemson his verbal commitment. Sumner-Gardner never expected to get an offer that could look Clemson in the eye. On Wednesday, the 6-foot-1, 190-pound safety picked up an offer from Texas A&M, a program that has been phenomenal with recruiting its 2013 class and is off to a very impressive start in 2014.

While he’s still committed to the Tigers, Sumner-Gardner now has something to think about.
