Smart Chibuzo headed to Aggieland with a head full of steam...and a headset?
Despite outsizing his peers from an early age, A&M offensive line signee Smart Chibuzo didn't get serious about football until his junior year. Now physically dominant and brimming with confidence, he's ready to make his mark at Kyle Field.

Midnight McKinnley musings (and other Class of 2020 thoughts)
Not a lot new to report that we haven't already said or haven't already been saying. As of midnight tonight, everything I'm hearing still adds up to things looking pretty promising for the Aggies when it comes to Lucedale (MS) defensive tackle McKinnley Jackson. Look, I get it, it's Alabama. And Nick Saban. On National Signing Day. Yep, anything can happen and I still would not call this anything better than 60/40 on my confidence meter in favor of the Maroon & White and it might be even closer than that. I'm not saying Jackson is locked up as an Aggie but what I'm saying is that folks in College Station went to sleep tonight feeling good about where things stood. Long way to go until that LOI comes in, however, and Saban and the Tide aren't backing off and have been trading blows with Jimbo Fisher and the Aggies into the wee hours. At the end of the day, if the Aggies pull off what many have felt was an unthinkable coup, it will be due primarily to the incredible job DT coach Elijah Robinson has done in terms of building an airtight bond with the coveted interior lineman.If the Ags are going to pull off a Signing Day win in a head-to-head matchup with Bama for the services of the most coveted unsigned defensive prospect from smack dab in the middle of the Deep South, this is the way things have to be set up for it happen. Stay tuned. Neither ending would shock me but I'm sticking with my A&M pick here ladies and gents.As for Darvon Hubbard, all signs and intel still point to the Arizona tailback signing with the Aggies tomorrow. Nothing has changed a bit since last week's in-house with Jimbo Fisher and Darrell Dickey.And how about this final result if the Ags are able to close things out with Jackson and Hubbard in the morning?The Aggies will have signed the best player in Texas in Demond Demas (if you watch football and have a damned clue what you're talking about you know this) and the state player of the year out of New Jersey (Fadil Diggs) and Mississippi (McKinnley Jackson).As far as the A&M board was concerned - from wire to wire, mind you - the Aggies believe they signed the best WR (Demas), QB (Haynes King), ATH (Devon Achane), OG (Akinola Ogunbiyi) and CB (Jaylon Jones) in Texas. Never mind the fact that Achane was disgracefully underrated by Rivals and King took an inexplicable drop in the rankings while Texas signee Hudson Card climbed and climbed despite missing a good part of his senior season with an injury. Again, at the end of the day, the Ags signed their top in-state target at six different positions, including tight end Blake Smith.Per the composite rankings, the Ags will have signed the No. 1-ranked prospect out of Mississippi (Jackson), Illinois (Antonio Johnson) and Arkansas (Chris Morris). They also inked the #8 player in the state of Florida (Donell Harris), the #5 player in Louisiana (Edgerrin Cooper), the #3 player out of Missouri (Antonio Doyle), North Carolina's #7-ranked prospect (Muhsin Muhammad), the #4 (Fadil Diggs) and #9 (Isaiah Raikes) ranked New Jersey products and inked top fifteen talents out of Arizona (Darvon Hubbard) and Tennessee (Dallas Walker).Speaking of the composites, a half dozen A&M signees will have come from the national top-100 if they sign McKinnley and twelve will rank among the top 159 prospects in the country. All told, a class with Jackson and Hubbard included would likely finish 6th nationally, giving the Ags last year's No. 3 overall haul behind just Georgia and Bama and this year's No. 6 class, trailing only the Dawgs, Tide, Clemson, Ohio State and LSU and edging out Auburn and Florida and likely holding off the annual surge from a rankings-adjusted and blatantly-inflated group out of Austin (what they've done this year is almost as out in the open and as shameful as the January deck-shuffling we witnessed in 2019).All told, the Ags' Class of 2020 is already an exceptional one, one that compares very favorably to the 2019 group that saw a half dozen true freshmen start and play well this fall. Here's what is as exciting as anything I've seen in a while when it comes to Texas A&M's recruiting efforts: The Ags have stacked elite-level classes that are worthy of being mentioned with all of the annual playoff contenders and they've done so before Jimbo Fisher's program has turned the corner on the field. Imagine if the Ags open up the 2020 season with a 7-0 mark heading into Auburn or make a legitimate run at an SEC West title? Then consider the fact that Fisher's recruiting machine just added one of the nation's true alpha recruiters in James Coley and ripped Marshall Malchow away from that same Georgia program...one that has stacked top three classes for four straight seasons. This is merely the tip of the iceberg, folks

All Greater Houston teams announced
The Houston Chronicle released their all area team today, and plenty of future/current Aggies were recognized. https://twitter.com/houstonchron/status/1217882865221980161?s=21RB Devon Achane continues his torrid run of awards/honors as he's named offensive player of the year. OL signees Josh Bankhead, Akinola Ogunbiyi, and Smart Chibuzo were chosen on the second team. A lot of underclass A&M targets made the cut, as well.

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)

Considered one of the best prospects in the nation and a likely difference-maker at the collegiate level. Displays all of the physical skills to be a future All-American with potential to be an early-round NFL draft pick.

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

The predictions represent which school each staff member believes will ultimately sign the recruit, and the confidence meter represents his level of certainty in that outcome.

Example #1

If the predicted school is Texas A&M and confidence is set to “High”, then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Texas A&M and I feel very certain about that.”

Example #2

If the predicted school is “Alabama” and confidence is set to “Low,” then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Alabama, but I’m not very certain about that.”
