Notes from the East Texas Combine
The East Texas Combine is one of my favorite events of the year and this year did not disappoint.When it comes to A&M recruiting two names jump to the front of the list. One is Nacodoches 2020 OL Riley Birdwell. The other is Diboll 2020 ATH Herbert Gums. Birdwell checked in at 6-4, 340 pounds. He visited Texas A&M last weekend and is on the Aggie's radar. He grew up a fan of the Aggies because of the culture, and he plans to attend camp this summer. He keeps in touch with offensive line coach Jim Turner on a regular basis and he is also hearing from Louisiana Tech, SMU, and Baylor. Birdwell is known for his strength. He boasts a deadlift of 580, a squat of 655, and a bench of 325. He is a powerlifter in the offseason and his heavy hands were easy to spot in one-on-one drills. I would like to see him keep those hands inside with more consistency, but his feet were more impressive than I anticipated. He has yet to receive his first offer. checked in at 6-2, 240 pounds and he will remind people of Vernon Jackson with his build and position projections. He worked at RB today, but he is being recruited on both offense and defense. He's a guy I could see as a FB/H-back type and Texas A&M is a program he says is showing heavy interest. Look for him to attend camp this summer. He holds offers from Houston (RB), SFA (LB), and Tulsa. LSU is a childhood favorite. -Another Texas A&M note, West Rusk standout and Texas A&M signee Tyree Wilson was in Tyler watching the action today. He turned 18 today and checks in at 6-6, 235. He reports to College Station next week. few guys who caught my attention-OL Devon King, Gilmer (2020) - The 6-3, 300-pound offensive lineman projects to OG, but he will also work on the defensive side of the ball and could emerge as a DT prospect. He has a build reminiscent of Marshall OL Chasen Hines. He's a barrel chested prospect with a powerful base. There were times he stopped moving his feet but he consistently stopped defenders dead in their tracks with great hand position. He is the son of former Daingerfield standout and Kansas State LB David King and he is related to Kendall Hunter and Keontae Burns. He is a high academic kid and he wants to be a physical therapist. He already bench presses 400 pounds and he holds an offer from Texas State. SMU, Texas, and a few others are showing early interest. Look for his stock to rise. Allen Horace, Crockett (2020) - Baylor and Oklahoma State have already offered the 6-5, 225-pound prospect. Both have also offered at different positions. Baylor offered at DE, while Oklahoma State offered at TE. He is also a standout on the basketball court. He did not mention Texas A&M but he is hearing from Houston, Texas, Arkansas, and Oklahoma about camps. He worked at DE during the camp and his length jumps out immediately. He clocked around a 4.8 40 and had a vertical over 30-inches. He's a guy I could see popping up on radars with a strong summer camp season.-RB/ATH TK Hamilton, Waskom (2019) - he took home RB MVP honors and may have been the fastest prospect there with a 4.47 electronic 40. He has the look of a slot WR or a CB right now and there is no doubt he brings some twitch to the table. He checks in at 6-foot, 160-pounds.-S Jerrin Thompson, Lufkin (2020) - Thompson is a rangy S with several offers on the table. Today he just missed DB MVP honors. He currently plans to camp at A&M this summer as well as Houston and Texas Tech.-WR TQ Jackson, Jefferson (2019) - Jackson was the highest ranked and most highly recruited prospect at the event today and he took home overall offensive MVP honors. -QB Jake Smith, Nacogdoches (2020) - Smith was a pleasant surprise. He spun the ball very well and threw with accuracy. He also checked in around 6-3 with a solid build. Look out for this guy, he'll attract some FBS attention his way.

More LB stuff
-The Aggies sent out another junior college offer at linebacker today to Sam Williams from Northeast Mississippi CC. The 6-5, 240 pounder projects to play on the outside of Mike Elko's defense. He's originally from Montgomery, Alabama which means Dameyune Craig will probably have a hand in his recruitment for A&M. He's also got offers from Oregon and Tennessee. The Vols look to be the biggest competitor early on. -Two new underclass names to watch at LB: 2020 Herbert Gums from Diboll and 2021 Vince Sheffield from A&M Consolidated. Various sources have told me both of those kids are being evaluated by a handful of power programs in the region, including A&M.

TexAgs National Average Rating

The TexAgs National Average Rating is a proprietary formula that calculates an industry-wide aggregate rating for each recruiting prospect. The formula includes publicly listed grades, scores, ratings and rankings by national recruiting services, along with a TexAgs rating. Combining the data provides a rating for each prospect, which is then normalized to fit the TexAgs Rating 100-point scale.

The intent of this rating is to provide TexAgs readers with a comprehensive snapshot of how individual prospects rank nationally.

TexAgs Rating

The TexAgs Recruiting team of Billy Liucci, David Sandhop, Jason Howell, Ryan Brauninger and a host of recruiting interns attends more than 75 games each fall and observes and evaluates every major Texas A&M target, as well as most of the top 150 prospects in the State of Texas. From this evaluation the team draws a rating for each prospect on a scale between 70 and 100.

99-100: Elite national prospect (Five-star)

90-98: Elite state prospect (Four-star)

Considered one of the best 30-40 prospects in the state and a top 250 national prospect. Displays the physical skills to be a major early contributor at the collegiate level with high professional potential.

80-89: Quality prospect (Three-star)

Considered one of the best 100 prospects in the state and a top 500 national prospect. Displays the physical skills to develop into a contributor over the course of his college career. Has the ability to become a professional prospect over time with development.

70-79: Solid prospect (Two-star)

Considered one of the top 250 prospects in the state. Has the physical skills to be a potential contributor at a D-1 program over the course of his collegiate career with significant development. Professional potential is low.

Staff Predictions
