My Three Things
*It's not debatable, Texas A&M won Texas - The 2019 recruiting cycle is in the books, and when it came to keeping top Texas talent in Texas the Aggies did it better than anybody. Regardless of the ranking system Texas A&M landed the most prospects in the Texas top 25 (Rivals 9, 247 Composite 8, 247 7, ESPN 9, TexAgs 10, Liucci 44 - 11). For future reference Oklahoma and Texas were the next closest schools, and regardless of the ranking four was the highest number either reached. And just for the record, I'll give Jimbo Fisher and Co. a 5-3 win over Texas in head-to-head battles. We could debate whether a few guys were actual battles like David Gbenda or Erick Young, but I give Texas A&M clear wins for DeMarvin Leal, Kenyon Green, Brian Williams, Demani Richardson, and Dylan Wright and Texas clear wins for Jordan Whittington, Tyler Johnson, and Javonne Shepherd. So, I would say that pretty much puts that whole deal to bed, Texas A&M won Texas.*My favorite story from the 2019 cycle - Last year, I would say being there to video Bobby Brown faxing his LOI to A&M was my favorite, but this year it would be Dylan Wright's announcement. From shooting the announcement video with the TPG team to the surprise release of the video and our coverage, it made me smile for many reasons. First, it was a great evening in Dallas hanging out with Dylan and his family. To have them trust us with the handling of their special moment means the world. Second, the reaction from the fans when the video dropped was off the charts. There was shock and surprise regardless of fanbase, and for the Aggies there was elation. And third, all of the TexAgs crew involved knocked it out of the park. Everything was first class all the way. It was definitely a proud TexAgs moment for me.*Aiming High in 2020 - A few weeks ago, I predicted the Aggies to have a top 3 recruiting class, and I may have overshot since the Aggies are only planning to take about 20 players. Still, I look for this class to be special, and have a higher average star ranking than the 2019 class which is saying a lot. The Aggies will continue to build inside out first (recruit Texas first), but I expect the Aggies to take things to another level with some national prospects. Offers are already out to guys like Sav'ell Smalls, Elias Ricks, Chris Morris, D.J. Uiagalelei, Jaquelin Roy, and McKinnley Jackson, and it is not unrealistic to believe the Aggies will play a significant role in the recruitments of these type of players.

Tuesday afternoon recruiting notes
The A&M staff continues establishing relationships and seeing kids out on the road. Most notably this week, the Aggie head man Jimbo Fisher was hitting targets all across the country. Coach's stops included a trip out west to see a pair of Cali's best players in CB Elias Ricks and QB D.J. Uiagalelei. He also dropped in on TE Darnell Washington in Las Vegas to see how the 6-8, 240 pounder is coming along. As I reported last week, I believe Fisher and Bradley Dale Peveto will see prime 2019 LB target Chris Russell tonight as the Aggies, Razorbacks, and Volunteers all nudge for position as we hit the home stretch. From what I understand, more of the defensive staff, including Fisher, will be in to see Daphne (AL) CB Christian Williams later this week. Jimbo also made a stop at East St Louis High school in Illinois. Mike Elko was in a similar area of the country today as he made stops in Tennessee to see Nashville based corner Keshawn Lawrence and in Kentucky to see Bowling Green native Vito Tisdale at safety. Closer to home, we continue to hear buzz about the Aggies picking up steam in terms of pledges with in-state targets. I'd be surprised if there wasn't at least one guy coming off the board on the other side of this weekend. We'll post our confirmed visitor list a little bit later today. We are still waiting to hear from a few kids.

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.”
