RIVER RIDGE, LA (WVUE) -

John Curtis tight end Glenn Beal signed with Texas A&M Wednesday. The final four fighting for his services were Texas A&M, Tennessee, Ole Miss, and Alabama.

"It was close and it came down to the wire," Beal said. "Last night around 10 o'clock I kind of knew where I wanted to go. When I went there for a visit, (I liked) the environment, the coaches, the people around the program, and the history behind it was phenomenal," Beal told the Times-Picayune. "That's why I chose Texas A&M."

LSU was in the running for LSU, but Beal had other ideas.

"I just felt leaving the state of Louisiana would be best for me. Help me grow as a person on and off the field," said Beal.
