Forney (Texas) four-star safety Aaron Flowers narrowed his list of top schools down to 10 earlier in March. Now Flowers knows what day he’ll be committing.

Flowers posted on his Instagram story that he’ll be committing on April 7. His top 10 includes Alabama, Baylor, Louisville, Michigan State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas Tech, USC and Washington.

“It just depends on how bad they want me because that’s really what they think of me,” Flowers told On3 about how one school will separate itself. “At the end of the day, all of the top schools are around the same in athletic ability, from USC to Alabama to Arkansas. They’re still gonna produce as much. They recruit me really hard and that definitely matters. They’ll text me every day and then, how much I can get up there and how close I am with the coaching staff.”

This spring has been a busy one for Flowers who has already visited Arkansas (March 11), Oregon (March 17), USC (March 21) and Alabama (March 24). He also visited Michigan State in January.

Arkansas didn’t make Flowers’ list of 10 but did note that he was interested in the Razorbacks thanks to the last visit.

“It really changed what my top schools are,” Flowers said. “I still may realign my list. If more offers come, I’ll change it. But this visit really changed my interest in Arkansas. I’m really interested in the school and I like it a lot.”

Flowers is the No. 115 overall prospect and No. 10 safety in the 2024 cycle, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He is also the No. 20 player in Texas.

On3 rates Flowers higher than other recruiting services, according to the Industry Comparison. Per the 2024 On300, Flowers is the No. 70 overall prospect in the country, the No. 7 safety and the No. 15 player in Texas.

The 6-foot-0, 185-pounder holds several Power Five offers and the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine currently has Texas Tech with highest chance to land Flowers of the teams who made his top 10 at 17.9%.

Flowers currently has an On3 NIL Valuation of $99K. The On3 NIL Valuation is the industry’s leading index that sets high school and college athletes’ projected annual value (PAV). The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.
