Ben Crancer, of Kirkwood, Mo., has given a verbal committment to play for Texas A&M, No. 10 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings.
Crancer, who is ranked No. 3 in the state of Missouri and No. 44 in the 2012 class, had made visits to Florida, Auburn, Mississippi, Wake Forest, Illinois and Oklahoma State.
“Texas A&M had everything I wanted. A great golf program and coaches, a top-rank business school, great tradition and everyone there made me feel I was part of their A&M family,” Crancer said.
This past summer Crancer, who attends Kirkwood High School, advanced to match play at the U.S. Junior Amateur, made the cut at the Western Junior and placed third at the Bubba Conlee.
