Texas Gov. Rick Perry says his alma mater, Texas A&M, and the SEC are discussing the Aggies possible future membership in the league, according to a report in the Dallas Morning News.

Perry was asked by reporters from the paper on Wednesday about recent swirling speculation surrounding the move.

“I’ll be real honest with you. I just read about it the same time as y’all did. … As far as I know, conversations are being had. That’s frankly all I know. I just refer you to the university and the decision makers over there.”

Perry once served as a yell leader for the university, whose president, R. Bowen Loftin, recently acknowledged that there was “uncertainty” regarding the university’s future membership in the Big 12.

Texas A&M released this statement to multiple media outlets: “President Loftin is committed to doing what is best for Texas A&M not only now, but also into the future. We continue to have wide-ranging conversations regarding all aspects of the university, including both academics and athletics.”

Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe is taking Texas A&M’s possible move “very seriously.”
