4-star JUCO offensive tackle Jermaine Eluemunor has switched his commitment from Arkansas to Texas A&M, according to reports.

Here's Eluemunor making the announcement on his Twitter account:

247 Sports has more from Eluemunor, who was on an official visit to College Station this weekend:

"The atmosphere was incredible," he said. "The people were so nice and everyone was coming up to me and they said hello to me and just treated me like family. The coaches were the same. I barely know these guys, but they gave me hugs and told me how bad they want me and all that. It was just a crazy feeling and they treated me so good."

This is a huge addition for A&M, as the Aggies will be losing Jake Matthews after this season to graduation. He could step in and play immediately, as he reportedly plans to graduate early from Scranton (Pa.) Lackawanna and be available for spring practice.

Though A&M has three other offensive linemen committed, none are exactly of Eluemunor's quality. The 6'6, 300 pound Eluemunor is ranked as the top JUCO offensive tackle this year, and the third best JUCO player in the country, according to the 247sports composite.

Texas A&M's recruiting class has moved from sixth to fourth in the country with Eluemunor's commitment, although they remain third among SEC teams, behind Alabama and Tennessee.
