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.

A few quick notes
I was at Southlake Carroll tonight for the Dragons' spring game. I got a good look at new 2020 TE offer Blake Smith. He worked at both QB and TE tonight and he is a big target for young QB Quinn Ewers. The Aggies seem to be in a good spot in this one coming off the visit and offer. His next step is to figure out a few visits and he will go from there. He is talking about possibly graduating early and he does plan to make his college decision before the start of the season.https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/11288495896484167702020 OL Andrej Karic was also an impressive prospect. He has always had a big frame but he has been on the skinny side. He is now up to 255 with room for more on his frame and it is easy to see the potential. He is light on his feet and he plays with a nasty streak. https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/11288509504232325172022 QB Quinn Ewers threw the ball well tonight. He has the tools college coaches drool over. He threw the ball with zip and accuracy and I have a feeling he will be fun to watch this fall. He plans to camp at Texas A&M, Texas, and USC this summer. https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1128852034248151040

I just spoke with new TE offer Blake Smith
Southlake Carroll 2020 TE Blake Smith (6-5, 245) visited College Station over the weekend with his family and he was offered by the Aggies. https://twitter.com/blakesmith_11/status/1127373508055584768Overall it was a great visit and the Aggies made a strong impression."From the outside looking in I didn't know what to expect, but finally getting to visit there and meeting all the coaches and seeing everything I kind of got a new perspective on everything, in a positive way," Smith said. "I got a really good vibe from them. They checked all of my boxes I wanted to see in a program. It was a great time and a great visit." They visited with coach Jimbo Fisher and coach Joe Jon Finley, and the Smith family is close with Carson Green's family which is a plus.Look for Smith to return to College Station for a visit this summer.He plans to sit down and figure out favorites and his visit schedule after Southlake's spring ball. He does plan to make his college decision before the start of the season.Right now, he is not ready to name leaders or anything but the Aggies are definitely high on his list."They will fit into my top list," Smith said.https://www.hudl.com/video/3/9313341/5c0f3250ff03340530ce3d60

Some late night recruiting notes...
Looch ain't in bed so you shouldn't be either. I've been on the road this week (as has Jason) if you couldn't tell from the interviews, but I have been able to pick up a few quick hitting notes from sources around Houston and east Texas this week. - I wasn't able to do a one on one with 2021 Katy Taylor OL Hayden Conner today, but I did speak with him for a while off camera. The last time he visited A&M, he toured the aerospace engineering department, and he really enjoyed it. They put him in the space shuttle flight simulator and took him through some of the objectives of the course work done in the department. Academics and engineering are going to play a big role for Conner when his decision time rolls around in about a year. A&M is certainly right in the thick of it with their ties to the Katy Taylor program and top notch engineering programs. Conner said he wants to go back and learn more on his next trip to College Station. When I asked specifically what he wanted to do with the aerospace stuff, he said, "I want to be an astronaut. There's height limitations right now, but I always thought it'd be cool to be the first 6-5 astronaut." - A&M will host some visitors this weekend. We will put out a full list tomorrow, but our team has been able to get confirmations on the following:Southlake Carroll TE Blake Smith Gruver TE Jalin Conyers - after state track meetMars (PA) OL Michael Carmody 2021 Pleasant Grove DL Marcus Burris 2021 Pleasant Grove DL Landon Jackson 2021 Hutto DE/OLB Landyn Watson ...and there's likely going to be more. For instance, we've heard Muhsin Muhammad III may sneak in as well as a few more high profile names. - Jason has been all over the Haynes King coverage, but I did have an east Texas source tell me today that, "if I had a crystal ball pick or whatever, I'd put one in for A&M." It's still early, and as Haynes and his dad indicated, they're going to be busy with trips this summer, but it feels like some major stock is going to be put into that upcoming trip to Aggieland.

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.

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.

From this evaluation the team draws a rating for each prospect on a scale between 70 and 100.

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)
