Just read an article on him over on GigEmNation, I like what I hear from him in the fist half of the article.
"The feeling is strong enough to fend off overtures from other programs. TCU reached out to Claiborne in recent weeks, making an in-home visit in an effort to get the 6-foot-1, 220-pound three-star linebacker up to Fort Worth, Texas, for an official visit. Claiborne thought about it briefly, but decided against it because of what he has waiting for him at Texas A&M.
"They just want me to come up there at least for an official visit," Claiborne said. "They really wanted me to. I was going to go but I changed my mind....I'm not going to bring that much drama. We already have a big class and I'm not trying to lose my spot.""
But some bits in the second half have me concerned if we lose Wallerstedt.
"Plus, Claiborne has a strong relationship with Texas A&M linebackers coach Matt Wallerstedt, who recruited him. He likened it to the bond he has with his high school coach at Port Allen. Guy Blanchard. In addition to the Aggies' SEC membership and proximity to his home state, that was one of the biggest reasons Claiborne originally chose the Aggies.
"Me and Coach Wallerstedt just bonded," Claiborne said. "We have a bond like me and my head high school coach have a bond. I need that connection away from home too and he just filled that spot."
Should we be worried about Claiborne's status if Wally leaves for TT?
Your will to win will define you tomorrow.
No, I don't think Claiborne will bolt but worth keeping an eye on.

When Taylor interviewed him at the O/D Bowl, he also mentioned his relationship with Wallerstedt as being what has kept him solid on A&M
Biggest comment in there, the point has been made that Cobra don't play, you want in, you better be all in.
Your logic is boggling my mind
