A few DB notes
-Go ahead and put Deuce Harmon down as a mid-term enrollee. He will graduate in December and he plans to room with longtime friend and teammate Eli Stowers in College Station. -Many of you saw Bluefield (WV) standout CB Isaiah Johnson listed the Aggies in his top 8 along with USC, Oklahoma, Texas, West Virginia, LSU, Georgia, and Tennessee. He was offered in April and he has formed a strong connection with the staff A&M staff and some of the recruits. He participated in the Madden Challenge earlier this spring and he has played 7-on-7 with Tony Grimes as well as some of the Miami guys. From talking to different sources, it does not sound like he is in a hurry to make a decision. In fact, I would expect this one to go into the fall or winter based on what I've heard, but the Aggies have positioned themselves well to stay in this recruiting process. -I continue to hear things are progressing well with Fort Smith (AR) Northside CB Dreyden Norwood. He keeps in close contact with the Texas A&M staff and I have even heard another virtual visit could happen in the near future. I would give Arkansas the edge right now, but after his first virtual visit he said the Aggies have made their way into his top 2 or 3 and it is safe to say the Aggies continue to make their presence felt.

Tony Grimes top 4
As many of you have probably already seen, the top corner target in the country, Tony Grimes, included the Aggies in his top four schools - which jived with what we had heard and what Howell had reported. I'll admit that I've been a bit more pessimistic about A&M landing Tony than the other guys on staff, but I was told that Mike Elko, Jimbo Fisher, and TJ Rushing have made up some serious ground from where they were at after Mo Linguist left for the NFL. Elijah Robinson has also had a hand in keeping the Aggies at the forefront. Assuming visits get back to normal, I could absolutely see a scenario where the Ags get Grimes and his family on campus on multiple occasions. Dre Bly is running this recruitment for UNC, and he's done a great job. The Tar Heels and Aggies join Georgia and Ohio State to round out the list.'m aware there was another thread on this, but we wanted one to get stickied so it didn't get lost down the boards. When the number one player at his position in the country includes A&M in a top 4, we want y'all to see it.

A few DB notes
-Denton Guyer CB Deuce Harmon created quite the stir with his Instagram post in Austin yesterday. There is no doubt the Longhorns have been making a push since offering and when a prospect turns up on a visit anywhere it is certainly something to watch. That said, after talking to a few sources I still feel good about the way this one is trending and where the Aggies stand among his top schools right now. -Virginia Beach 5-star CB Tony Grimes is nearing the announcement of his narrowed list on May 31, and Liucci, Brauny, and I have heard there is a good chance the Aggies make the list. On another note I have been hearing Ohio State and Georgia seem to be fading a bit. They could both still make the list, but it sounds like this one is trending away from both at least at the moment. One school I continue to hear making a big push is North Carolina. -We have mentioned a few guys to keep an eye on at the DB position, Mississippi Gulf Coast CC CB Jadarrius Perkins is a guy who has emerged as a prospect to watch since the Aggies extended an offer a couple of weeks ago, and he plans to narrow his list soon. Coach Rushing has done a great job developing a relationship there even before the Aggies extended the offer and I look for the Aggies to remain in the mix. When I spoke to him after he received his offer, he said he currently plans to make his college commitment in July. I have also begun to hear the Aggies are working their way back into the mix for Fort Smith (AR) Northside CB Dreyden Norwood. He announced a top five of Arkansas, Georgia, Missouri, Notre Dame and Oklahoma in late April, but in talking to some sources in Arkansas, Texas A&M and Norwood have remained in communication and the Aggies are making up some ground. There's still work to be done here. I would say Arkansas and Oklahoma are the two I'm watching the closest, but the Aggies do not appear to be done just yet.

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.”
