Since Alex Caruso burst onto the scene in June, Texas A&M has always been associated with his recruitment.

After all, Caruso is from College Station and his father is the associate athletic director at A&M. While other schools came into the mix, the Aggies seemed at the forefront thoughout the summer.

On Wednesday, Caruso made it official and committed to Texas A&M. He confirmed the news to in a text message.

"Love this place," Caruso said. "Was going to be happy for four years." 

The 6-foot-5 shooting guard from A&M Consolidated School (Texas) told us on Monday that he was down to the Aggies and Colorado, and would likely decide this week.

Caruso, ranked No. 55 in’s Top 100, is an athletic wing who is highly effective when driving the lane. He uses floaters and non-traditional finishes at a high rate, and is also very solid in transition.

The Aggies now have two guards for their 2012 class, with Caruso joining J-Mychal Reese.
