Earlier this evening class of 2016 RB Trayveon Wiliams (5-9/190) de-commited from TCU. He announced it via twitter with the following tweet.

Williams has a Sooner offer, but I don't see the Sooners as a fit for him going forward. All signs point to Trayveon heading to Texas A&M and finishing out their running back class for 2016. Trayveon's impending decision does however have an effect on the Sooners going forward.
With Texas A&M likely only taking one more running back in the class of 2016, that would seemingly put them out of the running for Trevor Speights 5-9/195. Speights seemingly sits at or near the top of the running back recruiting board for the Sooners. Wiiliams to A&M would mean Speights to A&M would be off the table. Speights however should visit Stanford in the future.
There is one more wrench that could determine how things fall with the running back position and the Sooners in the class of 2016 and that is current Stanford commit Brandon Stephens 6-1/205. Rumors have Stephens considering a visit to the Sooners at some point.
Here is my prediction as to how this recruiting circle finishes out.
Trayveon Williams - A&M
Trevor Speights - OU
Brandon Stephens - Stanford
