I believe TAMU is pressing. They recently dropped a couple more recruits and they may have accepted the reality that Derrick Griffin isn't going to qualify.

Is Texas A&M, TCU, Baylor or even Oregon in SportsDayHS defensive MVP Daeshon Hall’s future? According to coach, no one – including Hall – knows

In recruiting parlance, Lancaster four-star defensive end Daeshon Hall is a “soft verbal.”
What that means is that Hall is still committed to Washington – where he switched his pledge in June after de-committing from Texas – but is still entertaining other options. Hall took a visit to College Station last week to visit Texas A&M, his fourth official visit. Its one of a few big-name programs that are calling on the 6-6, 230-pound Hall – No. 18 on the SportsDayHS area recruiting rankings – in the last few weeks. After losing several pledges from its small class, Oregon has even entered the fray. TCU is still in the mix.
Lancaster coach Chris Gilbert said that Hall – much like his two high-profile teammates Demarcus Ayers and Dakota Austin – is still very undecided.
“He’s has a good time everywhere,” Gilbert said. “All those places that want him are good places. I’ve told him ‘Don’t worry about it.’ He’s the kind of kid that wants everyone to be happy. He’s got great relationships with all those coaches that have recruited him, and he doesn’t want to disappoint anybody.”
Hall was scheduled to take his final official visit to Baylor this weekend, but that’s uncertain at this point, according to Gilbert. Hall has come down with the flu, and in Gilbert’s mind, is already overwhelmed with his options.
“I really think he’s kind of tripped out,” Gilbert said.
“It’s a lot of pressure. But I try to tell him it’s good pressure. They’re all great schools. He can’t make a bad decision.”
Gilbert said he’s uncertain whether Hall, Ayers or Austin will make up their minds before National Signing Day (Feb. 6). But he’s ready for the decisions.
“Sometimes, I think [the coaches] get recruited just as hard as the kids,” Gilbert joked.

>>>He was talking about visiting some other schools a couple of months ago, but changed his mind and shut it down.
Besides Washington and Texas, Hall holds offers from USC, Texas A&M, Notre Dame, Missouri, West Virginia, Baylor, Oklahoma State, TCU and more.
Lancaster 2013 defensive end Daeshon Hall originally committed to the Longhorns in late February, after visiting Austin for one of the Horns’ junior days. However, the 6-foot-6, 220-pound Hall later decommitted from Texas in June and committed to the Washington Huskies the next day, citing reasons of wanting to be closer to his family. The Washington native has since had some second thoughts about that commitment and is beginning to look around.
“I’m still 100-percent to Washington, but I’m fixing to take some visits. I’m going to visit OSU, Texas A&M and LSU. I’m also going to West Virginia on December 1st,” Hall said.
---Also some info on 2014 cornerback Nick Harvey:
Ranked No. 67 overall and the No. 9 corner in the nation by 247Sports, Harvey has a grade of 95, making him a four-star prospect.
“I’m kind of open to everybody,” he said. “Texas A&M, LSU, Texas, Baylor, Houston and Virginia are the ones recruiting me the hardest though.”
