After clearing up some academic issues preventing him from enrolling in school prior to the fall semester, star guard Kobie Eubanks will attend Texas A&M.
According to Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com, Eubanks is going to be eligible to play basketball for the Aggies on Dec. 19 in a Big 12 game against Baylor.
"I want to be a part of something special," Eubanks told Goodman on Tuesday. "I visited there and really loved the players and the staff. I think they have something special going on over there."
Eubanks was originally scheduled to play basketball at the University of Alabama, but Matt Zenitz of AL.com reported in August that Eubanks had not been cleared by the NCAA. Goodman's report adds Eubanks originally did not achieve qualifying test scores over the summer.
Alabama's loss turns into a huge gain for Texas A&M and head coach Billy Kennedy, as the school picks up one of the top recruits in 2015.
According to 247Sports, Eubanks is a 4-star prospect and the 96th-ranked player overall. He's listed at 6'5" and 212 pounds, and he is a terrific scoring wing who is comfortable shooting from the outside.
Landing Eubanks is the latest coup for Kennedy, who is slowly turning Texas A&M into one of the nation's most intriguing programs. The Aggies now have the sixth-ranked recruiting class for 2015, per 247Sports, and they are coming off of a 21-win season last year.
The Aggies are returning their top two scorers from last season, Danuel House and Jalen Jones, and they now add a prolific scorer in Eubanks to one of the nation's best recruiting classes. The stage is set for Texas A&M to make its first NCAA tournament run since 2011.
