A few notes for the late night recruiting junkies
It's been a bit of a busy day. This morning I stopped by John Tyler to see recent offer Kitan Crawford. Check out the video interview if you haven't already. He's making plans to take an unofficial visit Texas A&M in late May-early June. He said he has an official visit to Texas June 28, but I am hearing it is June 21. I've been told by sources it looks like the Longhorns hold the edge right now, but Texas A&M is coming on strong. Look for a summer time decision, but it sounds like the Aggies have a legitimate shot at closing the gap.I closed the day in Longview where I caught up with coach John King and his son Haynes King. They're about to have a pretty busy summer. They plan to take an unofficial visit to Texas A&M at the end of May/early June to meet coach Fisher and check out the program. Then they plan to take an unofficial visit to Ole Miss (the Rebels had a couple of coaches on hand today) and they are working out the details on summer time official visits to Auburn and Tennessee. Haynes plans to make a preseason decision. We will see what happens here but I am told they are well aware of Jimbo Fisher's success developing QBs. The Aggies are also keeping an eye on Longview 2020 DT Sawyer Goram-Welch. He has added offers from Purdue and Memphis to a list which includes Texas Tech, Illinois, SMU, Louisiana Tech, Tulane and others. At 6-foot-4, 280-pounds he is attracting looks on both sides of trenches, and I hear the Aggies could take an interest on the offensive side of the ball.In between John Tyler and Longview, I went out to Texarkana to see Pleasant Grove 2021 DLs Landon Jackson and Marcus Burris. There is a lot of talk about them playing together on the next level, if they both find the right fit at the same place, and both plan to return to College Station this summer.Frisco Reedy 2020 OL Nathan Anderson announced his pledge to Oklahoma. His decision comes on the heels of a recent visit to Norman and an offer from the Sooners. Anderson is noted for his ties to Texas A&M, and the Aggies have taken a hard look. The Aggies were planning to get out to Frisco this week and those plans remain unchanged. We will see what happens after that, but it doesn't sound like his pledge to Oklahoma has changed or deterred the Aggies course of action. The Aggies were in Dallas today checking out some rising talents at Dallas Kimball. Standout 2021 CB Ishmael Ibraheem has received some offers from LSU, Arkansas, Ole Miss, and Georgia in recent weeks and the Aggies are taking a strong interest. It also sounds like coaches took a good look at 2021 RB Brandon Epton. He did not play varsity last fall but people in DFW have been buzzing about his ability this spring. Kimball is also home to 6-foot-5, 190-pound 2022 WR Kyron Henderson, who added Baylor to his Kansas and Illinois State offers.

Tuesday afternoon recruiting updates
With only a few spots left in 2019 and the close of the Dead Period on the horizon, the A&M staff is focusing much of their recruiting efforts on the incoming visitors this weekend as well as turning their attention to some of their top targets in 2020. After checking around the last day or so, I'd downgrade Colquitt Co (GA) CB Jay Ward to doubtful as a weekend official visitor. Now, that absolutely does not mean that he'll never visit College Station, but it will be tough to get him in at the end of this particular week. I do still believe he'll find his way to A&M prior to signing.I've heard encouraging things regarding Braedon Mowry getting his affairs in order. Still work to be done there, but the prospects of Mowry signing are increasing.A new name to keep an eye on at CB is Daphne (AL) standout Christian Williams. Williams is committed to Bama but did not sign with the Tide and has the Aggies at the very least interested to see if they can get him to campus. Still not hearing positive visit feedback out of Florida with Madison County standout and Florida St CB commit Travis Jay. Like I said though, he's a quiet kid. I wouldn't think we'd hear about an A&M visit until right before he got on a plane, but I'd put that likelihood at doubtful as of today. In 2020, two names are currently surging with A&M momentum, and they are Bastrop Cedar Creek DE Alfred Collins and Shadow Creek S Xavion Alford. Collins has ties to Texas (his mom went to school there), but he's visited A&M almost a handful of times and is by no means a Horn lock at this point from the way it was explained to me. Alford hasn't been offered yet, but I had an in-state talent evaluator that told me his film is probably the best junior safety film in the state of Texas. After watching it in its entirety, I'd probably agree. Alford is one of many 2020 prospects that could see an A&M offer come their way as the staff really starts honing in on their needs in the class. Longview DT and A&M legacy Sawyer Goram-Welch will also get a long look as will his HS QB Haynes King.

Santa's got recruiting notes
First off, Merry Christmas, y'all. I hope your day has been filled with the joy and laughter with loved ones that makes this time of year so special. Also, if you're not putting your potato salad on top of your gumbo, you're living life completely wrong. Now, some recruiting stuff...-The Dead Period ends Jan 11th. As many of you know, North Forest OL Javonne Shepherd is expected to take an official visit that weekend. A&M signee and long time friend Kenyon Green will be in town, and I believe Layden Robinson will make the trip, as well. Here's my advice on Shepherd: let this thing run its course, and don't get too caught up in the day-to-day swings here. I honestly believe Javonne is pretty conflicted heading into the final month. The waves in momentum here will come to an end when pen meets paper in February. In the meantime, Shepherd seems like he's gotten himself back into outstanding shape. Good for the kid, regardless of where he signs. Another likely visitor is Amite (LA) ATH Devonta Lee though I haven't gotten that Jan 11th weekend confirmed. Whether he shows up in College Station at the end of the Dead Period or not isn't nearly as important as him showing up any time before NSD #2. Remember, Lee camped in Aggieland last summer and spent a ton of time with Mo Linguist and Mike Elko. This is also a recruitment that Jimbo Fisher has sunk his teeth into. There's still a hill to climb, but make no mistake, this staff is going to make a full fledged pursuit of one the best Louisiana has to offer. There's been another name pop up at cornerback in the last week. Madison (FL) standout Travis Jay could find his way to campus next month. The 6-1, 185 pound Florida St commit obviously has some familiarity with the A&M staff and chose not to sign with the Seminoles during the early period. I've been unable to gauge how legit and reciprocated the interest is here yet on either side, though. For now, I'd just put it down as a name to watch.Another out of state stud that didn't sign with the school they committed to was DE Nathan Pickering out of Seminary (MS). Pickering remains committed to Miss State but was part of a group of 8 commits that didn't sign early with the Bulldogs. Very early on in this cycle, Pickering conjured up a pretty serious relationship with Terry Price. Now, there's a super long way to go here, and I'd put the likelihood of this kid ending up at A&M right between slim and none on Christmas Day, but it was a name floated to our team recently. If the kid shows up in College Station, we'll let you know. Some 2020 and 2021 names that will likely end up at A&M junior days after their performance during the playoffs and/or state title games:2020 Shadow Creek S Xavion Alford 2020 Shadow Creek DE/OLB Alec Bryant 2020 Longview DT Sawyer Goram-Welch 2020 Longview QB Haynes King 2020 Bmt West Brook OLB Jay Bell 2021 North Shore QB Dematrius Davis 2021 Duncanville OL Jadarius Thursby2021 Aledo ATH Hampton Fay 2021 Aledo ATH JoJo Earle Staying with the underclassmen, I feel very comfortable calling Texas A&M the strong, early leader for Newton DE James Sylvester. I've talked to a couple of coaches around southeast Texas and beyond who have expressed to me Sylvester's desire to play for Terry Price. I expect to see the Aggies go hard at corner in the 2020 class, as well. Howell's guy Jalen Kimber looks like a high priority guy as is Dwight McGlothern. There are plenty other names out there in state, and the staff will certainly draw the attention of a couple of national guys, as well.Last thing: I met another kid that looks like he'll be in the mix in that ridiculous 2021 OL class in state. Ft Bend Christian big man Remington Strickland was visiting family in the Golden Triangle this week, and I ran into him in town down here. He's 6-4, 285 and has started receiving some serious Power 5 interest. Extremely high academic kid. Just another monster to add to that already loaded group of O-Linemen.

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

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.
