Everything can't be perfect when it comes to the Texas A&M Aggies. One of the few things that didn't go their way is the commitment of quarterback Justice Hansen.
Considered a top 10 pro-style quarterback by 247Sports, Hansen ended up going with the Oklahoma Sooners over the Aggies, according to Bob Przybylo of ESPN. Hansen also had offers from schools such as Auburn, Ole Miss and Arkansas, but it appeared that Oklahoma and Texas A&M were the favorites heading down the stretch.
With the success the Sooners have had over the years at the quarterback position, Hansen was leaning in that direction early on until the Aggies entered the picture. He made an unofficial visit on March 19th to check out the Aggies, according to his 247Sports profile.
This commitment really shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.
In addition to Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M also picked up two solid quarterbacks from the 2013 class in Kohl Stewart and Kenny Hill, both of whom could end up taking over once Johnny Football is no longer around.
As for the Sooners, the quarterback situation isn't nearly as bright as it has been in years past.
Hansen will have the opportunity to compete for playing time right away and could be the future of the Sooners sooner rather than later. Head coach Bob Stoops has had tremendous success with quarterbacks from the Oklahoma area, as both Jason White and Sam Bradford were home-talent kids.
When asked about any pressure Hansen may face, his high school coach Lance Manning told Przybylo that he knows what he is getting into.
“He knows what it means to be a quarterback at OU from Oklahoma,” Manning said. “He’s not going to be afraid of that.”
