Lincoln Riley in Oklahoma, but was laid off when the head coach left for Los Angeles and pledged to the Trojans just days later. Can he disengage a second time? What will ultimately happen is not yet clear, but Nelson’s interest in Texas A&M is “real,” according to 247Sports director of recruiting Steve Wiltfong.

“The big news was this weekend—and Greg Biggins was on top, my colleague, the national analyst from out of the West— Malachi Nelsonthe No. 2 player overall in the Top247, quarterback, long-time USC commitment, and longer-committed Lincoln Rileycommitted to Lincoln Riley in Oklahoma and then stopped and switched to USC when Lincoln Riley He took his game to Pac-12 and Southern Cal, Malachi Nelson Pops on a visit to Texas A&M,” Weltfong told Hiring Whiparound Wiltfong. “I talked to some people who have spent time with Malachi. Just from a Texas A&M angle, I think people think it’s going to be hard for Texas A&M to flip Malachi Nelson From USC and its ties to Lincoln Riley His love for this crime and certainly his ties to the area and help USC build this class.”

Texas A&M doesn’t have a quarterback in the 2023 class, and Nelson would be quite the way to add to that.

He committed early in Oklahoma, then the University of Southern California. So she never went through any process. And now, from my vantage point, I see a young man who is just going through the process – drip Is, and crosses the endpoint. No doubt he still loves Coach Riley, and he still feels like he has a lot of potential there, but let’s see if there is a better option. I had a look at A&M.
