Midwest City (Okla.) Carl Albert fullback J.D. Runnels has made his school choice.
"He's not here right now," Runnels' mother said Friday night. "He's out celebrating the state championship we won.
"He committed to play for Texas A&M today. He just felt it was the best place for him. He's happy to be an Aggie."
More than just football came in to play for Runnels. "He feels like he can get a good education there too."
Runnels was supposed to visit A&M this weekend. "He is going to reschedule the trip for a later time. There were some activities for the state title celebration going on and we didn't think he should miss those."
