Notes and Thoughts from the All-American Bowl
I spent the last few days in San Antonio at the All-American Bowl and as I head back to DFW I wanted to share a few thoughts and wrap up my experience.Let's start with the final few spots in the 2020 class. This week I had the chance to see a few of Texas A&M's final few targets. Covington (LA) LB Edgerrin Cooper's plans will be known on Saturday. He will choose between Texas A&M, Utah, and LSU, and he has already signed his LOI. In San Antonio this week, the Aggies seemed to have most of the buzz, and I'll go ahead and say my prediction is he picks the Aggies. He took his final OV to Texas A&M, and it seemed to make a genuine impression on him. I would say Utah is the Aggie's biggest competition.Lucedale (MS) George County DT McKinnley Jackson is the highest profile of Texas A&M's final targets and it is clear coach Fisher, coach Elijah Robinson, and several members of the class have bonded really well. He has already taken OVs to Auburn and Alabama, and LSU, Ole Miss, and Texas A&M are currently slotted to get his final OVs in January. He continues to keep everyone guessing. I like the Aggies chances but I would not call the Aggies his favorite or anything like that. Ole Miss did take a hit when coach Luke was fired, and since Luke is at UGA the Bulldogs are trying to get in the mix. The Bulldogs are currently outside of his top five and right now he does not plan to take an OV there but you can never count out UGA. LSU and Alabama are probably the two biggest threats to the Aggies right now, but I have a feeling this thing is going to be up in the air until he puts pen to paper. The final possibility is Mobile (AL) St. Paul OL Brady Ward. He is a big guy with some potential and he has seen things pick up a bit over the last few months. He says he plans to take OVs to Texas A&M and Miami in January and he will sign in February. Florida could also receive a January OV too. Honestly, I don't see Ward at A&M, I just don't think the numbers will work out there. The buzz seemed to be around Miami this week, but I wouldn't count out Florida. Another program to watch is Auburn. He connected with Chad Morris when he was at Arkansas and he continues to talk to Morris' son Chandler. If the Tigers come through with an offer I could see them becoming a player. Now for some stuff on the Aggies signees. All of them have been impressive and have been recognized throughout the week as standouts. Yesterday, Muhsin Muhammad III jumped out to me. He runs smooth, crisp routes and makes quick adjustments to the ball. He does not mind getting physical either. He lined up both inside and outside throughout yesterday's practice and even worked on punt and kickoff return. LB Antonio Doyle is the most vocal of the Aggie bunch. He has been a lot of fun to watch if for nothing else just because he really seems to be enjoying himself. He hardly ever comes off the field during LB drills. He's working at MLB and OLB in the West's 4-3 and he has done a great job of grasping the defense and making the calls. Physically he's also pretty imposing and he has been a consistently strong competitor on the field.S Antonio Johnson has been the biggest standout of the Aggie bunch since arriving in San Antonio. His range and instincts at safety have been impressive and he will absolutely lay the wood when he comes to lower the boom. DE Donell Harris has also been a big standout. His speed and quickness have been well known, but he has shown a variety of moves and more strength and power in his game this week. Both Johnson and Muhammad are heading to College Station right after the game to begin their careers at Texas A&M. Overall Texas A&M's group has shined very bright over the first few days in San Antonio.Now for a few thoughts after seeing some of these national names for the first time.Notre Dame WR signee Jordan Johnson was the most impressive WR I saw while out there. He had DBs twisting and turning, created separation, caught contested balls. He did a little bit of everything. The Irish got a good one.Five-star CB Kelee Ringo was the most dominating defender in one-on-ones yesterday. He is a big, physical DB, and I don't think I saw him lose a rep yesterday.LB Noah Sewell is just different. I think TexAgs is going to look real smart for putting DE Alfred Collins in the top 5. That dude has such a high ceiling and he is already really good.Ohio State signee OL Paris Johnson is has been my favorite OL at this event. Big framed, flexible, strong, and light on his feet. Alright, that's all I got. I'm headed back to DFW.

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.”
