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.

A few recruiting notes on a Tuesday night
This weekend the Aggies host the Arkansas Razorbacks at AT&T Stadium and there will be more than a few prospects in attendance. We will have a running list, but we have already confirmed commitments Caden Davis and Dylan Wright plan to attend. Jeffery Carter and Kameron Brown are also good possibilities for Saturday. Last week, Duncanville 2020 S Chris Thompson said he would be there. Mansfield Timberview 2020 CB Jalen Kimber is a possible as well, and I look for 2021s Jai Jones and Erick Cade to also be in attendance. We will continue to keep you updated as we gather information throughout the week. Two who will not be in attendance are S commits Brian Williams and Demani Richardson. Their absence is not a source of worry though. Williams has a busy weekend with Dunne's homecoming weekend for Dunne, andRichardson has knee surgery on Friday. A few DB notes Oregon commit and JC CB Elijah Blades remains on the Aggies radar. After his official visit my source indicated this one was a long shot due to his relationship longstanding relationship with Oregon DB coach Donte Williams, but the Aggies remain in communication. I also hear the Aggies could very well keep an eye on the JC ranks for help in the secondary even if Blades is not an option A name to watch in the 2020 class is Broken Arrow (OK) 2020 CB Myles Slusher. He is regarded as one of the top prospects in Oklahoma, and he already holds offers from the likes of Arkansas, LSU, and Michigan. He expressed an interest in visiting earlier this fall, and he is a guy who has caught the attention of the staff.A new name to watch One guy starting to heat up in the DFW area is 2021 DE Ja'tavion Sanders. The 6-4, 210-pound standout caught my attention as a WR running routes this spring and then really turned my head as a defensive end last week for Denton Ryan. He is still very much learning the position, but he has a solid build, and he was a constant presence in West Mesquite's backfield Thursday night. He could be recruited as a TE, but I really like his potential at DE. He is on the Aggies' radar, and I look for this guy to attract a lot of attention over the next few years. Below is a quick look at his highlights from last week.

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.”
