Aaron Moorehead: A&M assistant coach's tweets push four-star receiver to decommit

Texas A&M receivers coach Aaron Moorehead went on a peculiar Twitter rant on Wednesday night, and a star receiver from Crosby who was committed to the Aggies apparently has used Moorehead’s strong opinions to back out of his pledge.

Five-star quarterback Tate Martell decommitted from Texas A&M after having been committed to the Aggies for two years. Shortly thereafter, A&M wide receivers coach Aaron Moorehead published some tweets complaining that kids these days don’t understand loyalty and accountability. These two events are probably related.


Moorehead then said he wasn’t talking about Martell but that his previous tweets would have been accurate even if he had been. Sure.


Martell visited Ohio State in March and a few days ago he sent a tweet in which he contemplated playing for the Buckeyes. Even if it was just a random Wednesday night rant about how college football recruit-aged kids are untrustworthy, Moorehead’s comments probably don’t improve Texas A&M’s chances of getting Martell, the nation’s No. 1 QB in 2017 per the 247Sports Composite, to recommit to the Aggies.

As an eighth-grader, Martell committed to the Washington Huskies.
