Four-star wide receiver Troy Omeire announced his commitment to Texas A&M with a tweet Saturday, calling it "home." 

The Fort Bend Austin High School product out of Sugar Land, Texas, was also considering joining the Texas Longhorns.

Omeire is set to graduate in 2020. As a junior in 2018-19, according to MaxPreps, he tallied 782 yards and 13 touchdowns on 46 receptions across nine games. 

According to Rivals.com's Mark Passwaters, the Aggies now sport "the best [wide receiver] class in America for 2020" with Omeire, Muhsin Muhammad III and Demond Demas. 

On Wednesday, Demas foreshadowed Omeire's commitment:

After Omeire made it official, Ryan Brauninger of TexAgs.com detailed the lead-up to the decision: 

"Omeire is a bonafide playmaker on the outside and passes every test for an elite, top-end player with flying colors. He camped at Texas A&M last summer with 2019 A&M signees Zach Calzada‍, Demani Richardson‍, Dylan Wright‍ and Chase Lane‍. At that time, Omeire got to spend a lot of time with Dameyune Craig, Jimbo Fisher and Darrell Dickey. Per sources in the know, Omeire became a priority target for the Aggies in 2020 during that camp in Aggieland."

Omeire is ranked by 247Sports as the 92nd-best 2020 prospect in the nation, 19th at receiver and 14th from Texas.
