08:22 AM ET 01.20 | Defensive tackle and Texas A&M recruit J.J. Bynum, who committed to the Red Raiders in May, will reportedly follow through on something he's wanted to do since he was a child. He wants to have his mother's last name after she raised him virtually as a single parent. Bynum plans to change his name to Lollar this upcoming week and wants Lollar on his Texas Tech jersey. "My mom's maiden name is Lollar," Bynum told RedRaiderSports.com. "Ever since I was younger, I've always just grown up with my mom and my sister and so I wanted to change my last name when I was little because I had no reason to be Bynum. My mom always told me when I got older I could change it when I was old enough."

Texas A & M Red Raiders? Now that's a new one. Are they in BCS or Lubbock?

I'm beginning to think my first grade teacher was right when she told my mom I couldn't read!

Starr...

He's going to Tech and he's adopting his mother's maiden name.
If he went to A&M he'd adopt her first name too.

Oh, rats.

I was gonna make a smartazz remark about how bad this TTech recruit wanted to be in the SEC...


Seriously, though, I think it's good on the kid to honor his mom this way.
