A few Monday afternoon notes
-Moultrie (GA) Colquitt Co. 2019 Jay Ward did not take his visit to FSU and instead went to Kentucky this weekend. He does plan to take his official visit to Florida State this weekend though. Ward was previously committed to Kentucky and if he doesn't end up at FSU it looks like he goes back to Kentucky.-It does sound like the Aggies made up some ground on Daphne (AL) DB Christian Williams, however; the Bayou Bengals out of Baton Rouge sure seem to have some growing confidence there. He will take his official visit to LSU this weekend. Talking to a few LSU sources, it also sounds like confidence is up for Amite's Ishmael Sopsher and Devonta Lee.-After Chris Russell's visit to Arkansa it looks like it's Arkansas and Texas A&M for the Dyersburg (TN) LB. He is still scheduled to visit Tennessee this weekend but Arkansas seems to be the main threat according to sources I've talked to. -I caught up with a few underclassemen about the Super Bowl party. Duncanville S Chris Thompson said he does not believe he will be able to make it. EJ Smith said he will not make it either. I noted in the visit thread that 2021 OL Erick Cade and Texarkana Pleasant Grove 2021 DE Landon Jackson will also not be able to attend. -One person planning to make it in for the weekend is recent Texas A&M offer and Denton Ryan 2021 standout Ja'tavion Sanders. Coach Price is leading the Aggies recruiting efforts."Coach Price is a cool man. I've been talking to him for some weeks now. I like him and I'm thinking about going there one day," Sanders said. "First of all their facilities are beautiful, they have a good coaching staff, their football team is good, their track team is good, ect."Sanders picked up an offer from Georgia today and he plans to visit SMU, Texas, and Oklahoma in February. Texas is someone to watch in this one. They have not offered but coach Herman has let him know they want to offer when he goes up to the Longhorns Junior Day and he says his family are Longhorn fans. When the Longhorns offer it looks like they will become a major player here, but regardless of what happens I look for him to look at his options -Carrollton Ranchview 2020 ATH Michael Henderson is planning to get out to Texas A&M this spring. He will visit Texas this weekend and he plans to start taking his official visits in April and make his college decision in July or August."I have some schools that I like more than others, but I'm still open for everybody," Henderson said. "OU is standing out, Texas A&M, Florida, schools like that."He keeps in regular contact with coach Price and he liked what he saw of Jimbo Fisher"I think they're getting better," Henderson said. "I think Jimbo is leading them in the right direction. It's a step in the right direction."If I'm honest here, I'd say OU is my prediction.

Sunday night recruiting notes
I was told by a few sources that the Aggies put their best foot forward for Colquitt Co. (GA) 2019 CB Jay Ward this weekend with the amount of depth in the secondary being a point of emphasis. I was told the visit went well, and it sounds like the Aggies made a nice push for Ward. Going into the weekend I was told by one source close to Ward that LSU and Florida State seemed to hold the edge, but the door was certainly not closed. Coming out of the weekend I get the sense there is some optimism on the Aggies part, but at least one source thought the Aggies still had ground to make up. We continue to work to get more from Ward and we will keep you posted. The Aggies also hosted 2021 QB Eli Stowers today, and he and his family spent a lot of time with coach Fisher and coach Dickey throughout the visit. The Aggies extended an offer this week and we were hearing the Aggies quickly became a program high on his list. I would say the Sunday visit is a pretty clear sign of just how real that interest is, and the word I received is the entire family enjoyed their stay in Aggieland.

Weekend visitor list and more
Colquitt County (GA) CB Jay Ward has already arrived in Texas and will begin his official visit early tomorrow morning. He has to get back to Georgia early on Sunday so with the 48 hour official visit rule, his clock will start in the morning. I expect Ward to get the full court press this weekend as I believe the Aggies would like to add another corner in this class if possible.Also expected on campus are Katy Taylor DE Braedon Mowry and Aggie OL signee Layden Robinson from Manvel who will be taking his official visit. As I said earlier this week, things are starting to look better and better for Mowry, but there isn't anything concrete just yet. I am getting the feeling that folks in charge are expecting Mowry to be in this class, though. Other visitors on the weekend will include the immensely talented group from Fast Houston with head coach and owner Ro Simon leading the way. Here are just a few of the many expected attendees:Smart Chibuzo - A&M commitDwight McGlothern Xavion Alford Devon Achane 2021 WR Latrell Neville 2021 CB Hunter Washington 2021 CB Mark Wilson 2021 WR John Paul Richardson ...and that's just who I grabbed off the top of my head. I'm sure I'm missing some. I've heard that A&M is still trying to get 2019 Daphne (AL) CB Christian Williams in for a visit, but at my last check tonight, nothing had been set up yet. Keep an eye on 2021 Hutto OLB Landyn Watson. He's been blowing up recently with offers, and I've heard from an Austin area source that the A&M staff is taking a long look at jumping in. Watson is extremely close with other top front 7 defenders in 2021 like Landon Jackson and Tunmise Adeleye.The Aggies shot out an offer to 2020 DB Vito Tisdale in Kentucky. He and Mike Elko have been talking for quite some time now, and the staff made the move to offer today.Lastly, I know Zach Evans not making it in isn't ideal after making plans to head up from Houston, but I have learned that Evans and those near him have remained in consistent talks with A&M staff members and Coach Fisher about rescheduling.

A few Wednesday night recruiting notes
I have a few notes from all over the placeWe'll start in 2019. Colquitt Co. (GA) CB Jay Ward will be in town this weekend on an official visit. I've heard from sources in Georgia that LSU and Florida State lead the way right now, but nothing is set in stone. I was told there is still time for the Aggies to make an impression, so we will see what happens after the weekend.Now for some underclassmen notes. Jimbo Fisher made his way by Denton Ryan today. The Aggies continue to pursue 2020 ATH and Oklahoma commitment Drew Sanders and are trying to get him back down College Station. He is considering a Junior Day visit. Another Ryan Raider of interest is DE/TE Ja'tavion Sanders. We've mentioned him a few times, and today, he received offers from Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. He attended the A&M/Arkansas game during the season and I'm hearing the Aggie's interest is picking up even more. Fisher also made stops at Denton Guyer and Denton Braswell. Both are home to 2021 standouts. Top QB Eli Stowers leads the way for Guyer while Braswell is home to OL Erick Cade who already holds an A&M offer.Denton was not the only place Fisher made appearances. He stopped by Hebron (2020 target Darius Snow) and Jesuit (2020 target EJ Smith)It sounds like the visits will continue tomorrow with plans to check in at Duncanville, DeSoto, and Lancaster. All three are hot beds with taken up and down the rosters but here are the guys who already have offers Chris Thompson Ja'Quinden Jackson Lorando Johnson.The Aggies are also getting ready for a big Junior Day in a few weeks, and I am told True Buzz will be in attendance. Signee Dylan Wright played 7-on-7 for True Buzz and the Aggies have their eye on a few other guys in the group. Dallas Carter 2020 DT Branard Wright, Mesquite Horn 2021 LB Kendrick Blackshire, and Weatherford 2020 QB Ken Seals are a few guys we've talked about quite a bit.Also expected are 2020 CB Ryan Watts (6-2, picked up Arkansas offer today), 2020 ATH Jahari Rogers (grabbed offers from SMU, Boston College, and Texas Tech today), one of the top 2020 APBs in Ty Jordan, 2021 WR Jaedon Wilson (younger brother of former DeSoto APB and Ohio State RB Dontre Wilson), 2021 QB Kaidon Salter, and 2021 WR Deamikkio Nathan. A few 2022s you will want to watch are also planning to make the trip in Lewisville WR Armani Winfield (6-2, already holds Baylor and UNT offers), South Grand Prairie RB Savion Red, and DeSoto RB Chris Henley (6-0, 200).

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.”
