Scattershooting Recruiting: Surveying A&M targets as 2020 focus narrows
After a fairly quiet spring, the recruiting wheels are likely to turn a little faster for the Aggies in the coming months. Billy takes a closer look at where A&M stands with a long list of their key targets on both sides of the ball.

Top in state target schedules visit
According to a source in Athens, highly regarded offensive lineman Garrett Hayes will visit Texas A&M next Thursday to meet with Jimbo Fisher and Josh Henson. The Aggies are among the favorites here with Oklahoma and Arkansas continuing furious pushes as well.

A few recruiting notes on a Wednesday afternoon
Offensive line coach Josh Henson was in Athens this morning to check in on Garrett Hayes. Hayes continues to give the Aggies a long look and there are talks of a possible unofficial visit in the near future. We will continue to keep you posted on that, and I am told the Aggies are among his top schools. I did hear from an East Texas source that it looks like OU and TCU are in line to receive official visits. He just returned from his Arkansas visit, but it sounds like he is taking his time with the process right now. I stopped by Denton Braswell yesterday to see 2021 OL Erick Cade and it sounds like Henson will be there today to check in with the big guy. He plans to camp at A&M this summer. Henson is also expected to stop by Frisco Reedy while he is in the DFW area to see 2020 Nathan Anderson who just committed to Oklahoma. As I mentioned the other day, the Aggies have been watching Anderson closely and I do not expect his commitment to change that. Coach Joe Jon Finley was in Southlake yesterday checking in on red hot TE prospect Blake Smith. Smith said the visit went well and he will be in College Station this weekend on an unofficial visit. He has received offers from Washington, Baylor, LSU, Miami, and Nebraska in the last week and a half. A name I have been hearing pop up more and more in regards to Texas A&M is Lancaster 2020 RB Tre Bradford. He checks in at around 6-1 and 190-pounds right now and he is known for his speed and power. He was a sprinter for Lancaster's track team in past years (which means he can flat out fly, like 4.4 40 fast), but he focused on football this offseason and has added 20 pounds of good weight. I have also heard from sources in the DFW area that Chris Thompson and Texas A&M have been in recent communication, and that there continues to be interest. I would say there is still a long way to go on this one, but it is something to watch down the line especially if he makes it in for a visit which I have heard is a possibility.I caught up with some sources in the northeast today to get more of a feel for what the Aggies are getting in Fadil Diggs. He checks in at about 6-5 and around 240-pounds, but is still skinny and long. The terms "raw" "versatile" and "great athleticism" were used to describe what he brings to the table. Diggs is a high upside prospect who plays MLB and TE in 7-on-7 and has shown he is more than capable of dropping into coverage. As for how things went this weekend at the Rivals Camp, I was told he got most off his wins on pure athleticism and did not have to show much to get his wins. Take that to mean he made it look real easy out there.

A slew of miscellaneous recruiting notes - Tuesday evening
The Texas A&M staff continues to comb the state and the country evaluating players and building relationships with HS coaches. Jason had an update this morning on OL coach Josh Henson who was making the rounds in Houston. LB coach Bradley Dale Peveto was on the east side of Houston as well today with stops at Dickinson and Clear Creek among a host of others. He's also been by Dayton (RJ Orebo's little brother Donovan Orebo is a 2022 prospect) and all through the Golden Triangle. My southeast Texas sources say Peveto is becoming a pretty common guest. BDP is from Orangefield so it makes sense that he's got strong ties to the area. From what I know, Peeve hit Nederland, PNG, LCM, West Orange Stark, Port Arthur Memorial, Beaumont West Brook, and Beaumont United. He's expected to make the rounds through Louisiana tomorrow.Staying in state, WR Coach Dameyune Craig was at A&M Consolidated today to see Devin Price. I was out there, too. I don't know if it's because he's TP's son or if it's that he's a local kid, but if his name was Devin Peters from North Shore, I think there would be a ton more buzz about this kid. He's really stinking good, and he keeps growing. He made 2-3 catches today that are on par with the best the state has to offer. Here are a couple of clips. what I know, some of the big powers in the region (Arkansas, Oklahoma, Auburn) are balking because they believe it's a foregone conclusion that he'll be an Aggie. Devin is still sticking to his timeline of making a summer decision. He continues to talk to the A&M staff very consistently. Mike Elko and Elijah Robinson have hit a whole host of states this week and will continue to do so tomorrow. Elko has been in Louisiana, Tennessee, and Kentucky today and will head to the northeast tomorrow with Robinson to see Fadil Diggs, Isaiah Raikes, and one of the top safeties in the country, Jordan Morant. One stop Elko made today was with Vito Tisdale. Now, while Jason has heard that a commitment to Kentucky is likely in the near future, I heard today that Tisdale has plans to visit College Station in early June. It'll be very interesting to see how that plays out. Another out of state safety prospect the A&M staff would like to see in Aggieland is Antonio Johnson. He was scheduled to make a trip earlier this month, but there was a fire at his house that threw a wrench in a lot of his plans. A&M has built some solid relationships with both Johnson and Tisdale, but it's important, like it always is with out of staters, that they get them on campus to give themselves the best chance possible. Muscle Shoals (AL) LB Jackson Bratton remains committed to the home State Crimson Tide, but he's keeping his eyes open. It's no secret that the Bama depth chart is crowded at the linebacker spot. I think the Aggies get him back on campus. I was told today by an out of state source that A&M is actually recruiting Memphis (TN) big man Omari Thomas as a defensive lineman. He joins Raikes, McKinnley Jackson, and Jaquelin Roy among the group of interior out of state DL the Aggies are currently in the running for. I continue to hear things swing back and forth for Ft Bend Austin WR Troy Omeire. I think, based on what I've heard, there are folks around him who would like to undoubtedly see him in Aggieland. I also believe there are some Texas influences in there, as well. One thing I'm sure of though is that Omeire hasn't missed many days in the weight room this offseason. He's a big dude. was able to get some more info on Athens OL Garrett Hayes from a source in east Texas today. It sounds like things currently are between Arkansas and A&M. Hayes has really enjoyed the time he's spent getting to know Josh Henson and the talks he's had with Jimbo Fisher. Even with his mom's ties to A&M, the decision sounds like it will be all Garrett's, as it should be. He's also up to 295 from 275 since he's had to quit trying to make weight for power lifting.

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.
