My Three Things
*Not done yet - Maybe I am crazy but I still think there's a realistic possibility the Aggies reel in OL Akinola Ogunbiyi and CB Ryan Watts. I wouldn't say those guys are flipping any time soon, and they may not ever, but I can see them both in Texas A&M's 2020 class when the pen meets the paper.*Momentum building? - Last week in this column I said I thought the Aggies could see the action pick up significantly over the summer months, and I'll go a step further this week. I predict the Aggies to add double digits to the class this summer. I do include Fadil Diggs in that number, so I am saying the Aggies land at least nine more to the class before the end of August. I will also say it is likely at least one of those is not a guy we are talking about right now.*A few spring thoughts from my travels-RB Seth McGowan is as impressive as it gets on and off the field.-Cedar Hill OL Courtland Ford is in for a monster senior season-We knew Denton Ryan's Drew Sanders was an incredible athlete with high potential on defense. He looked locked in on defense when I saw him this spring, and it was scary good. -I had my questions after the Opening Regional, but South Oak Cliff 2021 LB Jai Jones has the look of an SEC ILB this spring.- Kendrick Blackshire's lateral quickness has drawn some questions, but he looked just fine to me the other day. -Duncanville is the deepest team I have seen so far. -Denton Ryan was ahead of schedule last year and looks like a team ready to get over the hump. -Pleasant Grove had the most intense practice pace I've seen this spring.Bonus Thought: There's lot of big time players competing at the state track meet this weekend. Just to name a few there's CB Jaylon Jones (4x100) QB Eli Stowers (high jump), OL Bryce Foster (shot and discus), RB Camar Wheaton (4x100), WR Devon Achane (4x100, 4x200, 200), QB Malik Hornsby (4x100), CB Kitan Crawford (4x100), Billy Bowman Jr (4x200), Aledo and Lancaster's 4x100 teams.

Recruiting nuggets right on time for dinner
We'll post the list for this weekend soon, but commitments Kameron Brown and Baylor Cupp on there. Brown also plans to be in College Station for the Aggies match-up with Kentucky next week. Coppell 2021 WR KJ Liggins said he will be in attendance on Saturday. These guys join Dylan Wright, Caden Davis, 2020 S Chris Thompson, and South Oak Cliff 2021 LBs Jai Jones and Jalen Jones on the list. Jeffery Carter is listed as a maybe.I also hear, still waiting to confirm, that Mesquite Horn 2021 LB Kendrick Blackshire will be there. Lancaster 2021 WR Majik Rector hopes to make this this weekend, and 2020 DT Brenard Wright did not know if he would be able to attend or not. Before you guys ask the following guys said they will not attend this weekend for various reasons. Mansfield Timberview 2020 CB Jalen Kimber has family obligations and will not be at the game. 2021 DE Landon Jackson will be busy with Pleasant Grove's homecoming. Duncanville's Marquez Beason and 2020 ATH Ja'Quinden Jackson, Hebron 2020 S Darius Snow, and Cedar Hill Trinity Christian 2020 CB Dwight McGlothern said they will not be in attendance. Denton Ryan 2020 ATH Drew Sanders has been manning a LB spot in the middle of the Raiders' defense this fall, and with his size and measurables he has the makings of one of the top overall prospect. Brauninger reported earlier that he visited A&M this summer, and Terry Price has stayed in contact and is leading the Aggies efforts there. He remains committed to Oklahoma, and the Sooners have built a strong bond with him and his family. I still see this one as a bit of a longshot, but he did mention the Aggies along with Georgia, Houston, and Oklahoma as schools keeping in touch. He does not have plans to return to Aggieland at this time, and I do not expect him at the game Saturday. That said, it is something to keep an eye on in the future.Fort Bend Bush 2020 ATH Kenneth Phillips is an LB prospect to watch. Coach Linguist has been in touch with the 6-2, 195-pound standout and SMU, Tulsa, and Kansas State have also expressed an interest. He is playing quarterback and linebacker for Bush and he has 17 tackles, 4 sacks, an INT through 3 games this fall. He is close with Erick Young, and he has been to College Station a few times already.Another name to keep tucked away is South Oak Cliff 2019 DE Steven Parker. He has been wrecking shop off the edge for South Oak Cliff with 13 sacks in 3 games. His academic situation is something teams have been monitoring and that situation has improved and appears much clearer. That improvement has colleges taking another look. He is currently committed to Texas Tech, but I've heard from one source it would not be surprising to see him reassess his options.

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.
