Some 2020 news and notes
As some of you saw on Twitter, new QB offer DJ Uiagalelei would very much like to visit A&M this spring. The exact date has not been determined yet, but the Super Bowl weekend is not out of the question. Additionally, DJ would like to take a tour of Olsen Field and visit with the Aggie baseball staff as he is entertaining the idea of playing both sports, at least for now. Jimbo has background here with Jameis Winston having been a dual sport guy early in his career at Florida St. The Aggies have been active in the state of Washington today. I posted earlier about the pair of 2021's they saw (and offered), but Jimbo Fisher also extended an offer to 2020 WR Gee Scott out of Sammamish, Washington.The visitor list at next weekend's junior day will be loaded, and we'll post the large majority of those names next week as confirmations begin to roll in. I've heard Kentucky based safety Vito Tisdale is a maybe for now, but even if he can't make it, he'll likely find his way to campus soon.I also believe there's a strong chance the Aggies add to their 2020 class next weekend. As always, timing is tough to pin down, but things are definitely trending toward A&M making an addition or two in the next couple of weeks.Lastly, I spoke with signee Layden Robinson about his weekend visit. He measured in at 6-4, 329 pounds, but he did (jokingly) add, "but that was after I ate a whole bunch." He said he spent the weekend with the early enrollees and will start on Jerry Schmidt's workout plan this week. "They want me to play center for sure," Robinson told me. "At one point, they weren't sure if it was going to be guard or center, but they told me this weekend I'd be a center." He also added, "Man, if we could add Javonne Shepherd, this class would be amazing. That gives us two inside guys and two tackles."

Tuesday afternoon recruiting updates
-I'm still not ready to go all in on the Javonne Shepherd to A&M movement. Georgia is making a strong push. Bulldog OL Sam Pittman was in Houston last week to meet with Shepherd as was Jeff Banks either Alabama. I heard Pittman really impressed Shep and those around him. It'll be noteworthy if Javonne finds his way to Athens at some point. While I don't believe he'd go that far away from his support system, it did surprise me how highly thought of Pittman had become to Javonne and others. The Texas visit was still scheduled at last check, as well. -The Aggies are expecting Daphne (AL) CB Christian Williams to visit this weekend, but it's not set in stone just yet according to one of my sources. We've been reporting that this was being worked on, and it sounds like this weekend may be the Ags best shot to get him to town. I've also been told that Devonta Lee remains in talks with the A&M staff to reschedule his previously missed visit. Nothing substantial to report in terms of a trip to College Station yet though, and it sounds like the homestate Tigers are doing what they do.-The Aggie coaches are back on the road. We told you last night about Darrell Dickey heading to California, but we've also heard Coach Fisher is out on the west coast as well. He'll see Aggie legacy Sam Adams as well as 2021 Washington QB commit Sam Huard in the Pacific Northwest. More locally, Terry Price was in Bastrop today to see 2020 DE target Alfred Collins. A source out there also told me TP will return to see Collins play basketball tonight. Mike Elko is in DFW to see the usual cast of characters on the Aggie defensive big board in the Metroplex. -I've heard some 2020 in state linebacker names to really keep an eye on for A&M are Denton Ryan's Drew Sanders (OU commit), Stafford's Rob Wooten, CyCreek's Josh White, and even Ft Bend Hightower's Christian Hood. In terms of upcoming offers, I'd watch for Wooten and White. -I'm working on an update on Dyersburg (TN) LB Chris Russell and will make another thread once I hear back from some folks in Tennessee. I'll also have a few quotes from OL signee Layden Robinson on the heels of his official visit last weekend.

Sunday recruiting quick hitters
I'll start with the Demond Demas visit to Texas as info has started to come out today. I'm not going to dive into the minutiae of what exactly went down, but I'll just say Tom Herman and company didn't do themselves any all. They communicated some things to Demas that he didn't necessarily agree with and did it in a manner which wasn't received too well. As we've stated before, there are different approaches to recruiting happening in Austin and in College Station. Based on my understanding, the reaction to Texas' pitch this weekend was similar to what DeMarvin Leal experienced both in approach and response. If Demas completely shuts out Texas for a while going forward, I would not be surprised, and the Longhorn staff (and others) would have nobody else to blame but themselves. Dameyune Craig has been in touch with Demond and those around him since yesterday. I'll catch up with defensive end commit Braedon Mowry soon after he wraps up his official, but the information I keep getting makes me really feel like he'll end up on campus for the Maroon & White.I heard OL signee Layden Robinson continues to turn heads with his size, athleticism, and presence. I think the Aggies got a real steal here from a Manvel program that has been very good to A&M. I'll grab some quotes from Layden when he leaves town, as well. It's no secret that the Ags will probably go heavy at corner in 2020. If you listened to my interview yesterday with Dwight McGlothern, you know the Aggie staff is targeting him as a swing corner/safety prospect. I remain confident that Shadow Creek stud Xavion Alford will be offered at safety soon, as well. So, where will the 2020 class go at corner? Some in-state names I think will get heavy looks are Jalen Kimber (who I was told is similar to Marcus Banks but further along in his development) and Lorando Johnson out of the Metroplex, Jaylon Jones at Cibolo Steele, and Donald Warnell down in DIckinson. I also had an east Texas source tell me the Aggies remain interested in Jerrin Thompson out of Lufkin as an option in the defensive backfield.

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.”
