A pair of Monday afternoon recruiting notes
- I spoke to a source very near to Ft Bend Marshall RB Devon Achane late last week and over the weekend. If you'll remember, I talked to Achane at the Houston Touchdown Club preseason award ceremony where he was honored as one of the top players in Houston heading into the 2019 season. Also, OL commit Akinola Ogunbiyi told me he'd been working hard on Achane since the pool party. The southwest Houston presence on the A&M roster should help the Aggies. Achane also mentioned how he goes back a ways with Jalen Preston. Achane said he's got his list down to 4-5 schools. He has already taken an official visit to North Carolina, but he did not mention the Tar Heels amongst his favorites. The schools he rattled off were A&M, LSU, Florida State, Houston, and Alabama. It's also worth noting that he did not mention Auburn given that I had recently heard Gus Malzahn had begun really taking an interest in Ft Bend Marshall QB Malik Hornsby. My source did say LSU had picked up communication in recent weeks, but he was confident in A&M holding the lead as the season gets underway. Achane told me the Aggies will for sure get an OV, but he was still working with Darrell Dickey to figure out the best date for him to come to campus. I was told that no coach had formed a relationship with Achane like Dickey had. He's clearly been working on him the most since the Aggies offered back in December. My source said Achane felt like he hadn't done enough homework over the summer to make a decision before the season. Therefore, he'll more than likely wait until all of his visits are done. "When Devon commits, he is done," my source said. "He's not the kind of kid to do it just to do it." - I checked around with a few folks on Blinn JC DT Josh Ellison. First, I can tell you that the coaching staff over there has been extremely high on Josh since he got to campus. In a report by local KAGS sports reporter Mike Lucas over the weekend, Blinn head coach Ryan Mahon called Ellison "a human wrecking ball who can ruin an entire offensive line on one play." In regards to Ellison's future after Blinn, I was told he's still very much in the Aggies' future plans, and Josh still very much wants to be an Aggie. Whether he returns back to Aggieland after one season or two remains to be seen, but whatever the timetable, I think he'll be in Maroon and White at some point.

A few Saturday recruiting notes
New Orleans OL Sedrick Van Pran is set to make an announcement tonight and I have heard from a few sources the announcement could very well be a college commitment. A commitment would be a bit of a surprise considering he has talked about making an announcement at the Under Armour game throughout the process. That said, It sounds like Georgia is the call at this point. Van Pran is a guy I think the Aggies will continue to recruit, but I get the feeling flipping him is going to be tough. The Aggies do have a few things going for them though. He has been in touch with the coaching staff on a regular basis and he has a good relationship with coach Henson and coach Peveto. He also has a strong bond with OL commit Akinola Ogunbiyi. Sticking with the 2020 class, it also sound like the Aggies will receive a visit from Highland CC (KS) CB Brian George this fall. He recently named the Aggies in his top 10, and he has been in communication with the Texas A&M staff. If I had to put my money on it, I would say the A&M/Bama weekend looks like the visit weekend. Texarkana Pleasant Grove 2021 DE Landon Jackson has previously talked about making a college decision as early as early this fall, but he now plans to slow things down and is looking more at decision sometime around next summer. I would not read too much into that since it is still early in the process for Jackson, and everything I have gathered points to the Aggies being in very good shape with him and teammate Marcus Burris. I expect both to visit Aggieland this fall. I have also been hearing the Aggies continue to make inroads at Galena Park North Shore. WR Shadrach Banks has already committed, and the Aggies are high on the list of QB Dematrius Davis and OL Jaeden Roberts. It sounds like there is a good possibility all three spend their college days in Aggieland.Looking at the 2021 class here's a few uncommitted guys I feel good about going the Aggies' wayQB Dematrius DavisOL Jaeden RobertsOL Trey Zuhn OL Bryce Foster DE Landon JacksonDL Marcus BurrisI also like where the Aggies sit for guys like OL Reuben Fatheree, DE Jordon Thomas, LB Terrence Lewis, and CBs Tony Grimes and Ishmael Ibraheem.

Strong in the middle: A&M quietly recruiting an elite group at guard
While recruiting elite receivers and big-name quarterbacks is more exciting for fans, assembling a strong interior line is key to the Aggies' future success. Less visible but just as important, A&M has a strong trio of guards committed in the 2020 class.

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.”
