Recruiting didn't slow down in the month of June as many prospects shortened their lists and made commitments throughout the Southeastern Conference. Jason Howell breaks down the latest news from around the SEC.

What to watch for this weekend...
There's been a lot of content this week on the site (Jason has been killing it) so I wanted to make a post to kind of consolidate some of the recruiting stuff and give y'all a quick snapshot. CommitmentsIf you set the over under at 1.5, I may take the over. Given the current momentum with guys like Baylor Cupp, Marcus Stripling, Akinola Ogunbiyi, Kendal Septs, Chris Thompson and Bryce Foster, I just think the Aggies make a couple of additions either during or right after the weekend. Storylines-Will Kenyon Green make it to campus?-Where will the Aggies sit with DeMarvin Leal and Adisa Isaac after their official visit weekend?-Who is this year's Max Wright and Jordan Moore? -Can the Aggies make a big move for David Gbenda and become the clear leader? Same with Branson Bragg -Do out of staters Nakobe Dean, Christian Harris, and Makiya Tongue make it into town?Five guys we feel like A&M is in a good spot for...This is an addition to group of players listed in the possible commitment group. Aledo DB Jeffery Carter FW Southwest WR Nnamdi Adim-Madumere Ft Bend Bush CB Erick Young Houston Madison CB Bobby Wolfe Katy Seven Lakes DE David Ugwoegbu Other notes-One of the first names to get a strong look very soon is San Antonio Jay QB Jacob Zeno. Don't be surprised to see Darrell Dickey and/or Jimbo Fisher in the Alamo City to see him. -North Forest studs Javonne Shepherd and Demond Demas will be at Alabama this weekend, but A&M is working hard to get them back on campus soon. -I said the other day that recent offer Myron Warren would visit soon, and a Louisiana source tells me it'll likely happen within the next couple weeks.

Late Tuesday night recruiting update
-I was told tonight that Braedon Mowry had a very productive, extensive conversation with Terry Price today. -A source out West tells me that California QB Ryan Hilinski may be close to shutting things down, and I hear the Aggies cross division rival South Carolina is the leader. -A Louisiana contact told me tonight that Southern Lab LB Christian Harris and ATH Makiya Tongue have spoken highly of the Aggies recently. Of the two, my guy felt like Harris was the more likely of the pair to end up out of state. I've been told Tongue wants to play wide receiver while many view him as a defensive player. -I think we have sort of glossed over how highly the staff thinks of Nnamdi Adim-Madumere. He's been getting the hard sell from Jimbo Fisher and Tim Brewster. Should the Aggies land him, we continue to hear it'd go a long way with Jeffery Carter in Aledo. -Look for Starkville (MS) LB and LSU commit Zach Edwards to make a visit to A&M soon. -Up front, I feel comfortable adding highly touted Connecticut OL Jack Stewart to next week's visitor list. I said last week that he's been really receptive to Jim Turner and Lee Grimes, and it sounds like he's made plans to be in College Station for the spring game. -I mentioned Tyrone Brown as an emerging linebacker prospect last month, and I've heard he's going to get a strong look this spring. -A new DB offer went out earlier tonight to Edna Karr (LA) standout Devin Bush. He currently holds offers from just about every power program in the country, and folks in the Bayou believe he'll stay home and play for the Tigers.

A few defensive recruiting notes
-I spoke with Cinco Ranch LB David Gbenda a little bit. The Aggies were one of his first big offers, and he's seen his stock soar since. He'll make an enormous leap into our next top 100 rankings. He's going to visit Texas this weekend, but the Horns have yet to offer. He hasn't set a date for his A&M visit, but the trip will take place sometime this spring. I feel comfortable calling the Aggies the early favorites here. -Staying at linebacker, the A&M staff has poured out offers across the country, but I've heard the two most responsive/communicative prospects reside across the Sabine River in LSU's backyard. Baton Rouge University Lab teammates Christian Harris and Makiya Tongue have been in pretty regular talks with the A&M staff. I was told by a source that Tongue in particular really had a good time at A&M last month. -A DFW source told me last night that things are trending considerably A&M's way for Aledo DB Jeffery Carter. I'll always defer to Jason when it comes to guys from the Metroplex, but my source had been in contact with Carter recently. -Reaffirmed what I thought about Detroit (MI) ATH Jaren Mangham being recruited at LB. I think he'll come back to A&M this summer and possibly camp with the Aggies. -I can confirm Looch's report about the Ags being in much better shape with Marcus Banks than most previously thought. -Not on defense, but Jordan Whittington told me a little bit ago that he still hasn't decided on plans for the weekend. I'll start a new thread when he tells me what's going on.

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 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.

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.”
