Looking Ahead: An in-depth analysis of potential 2021 offensive targets
With National Signing Day in the books, most of the 2020 Texas A&M class seems to be locked down. This means a lot of focus from the program and fans alike will turn to the upcoming class. We take a hard look at some 2021 top prospects and where they stand with the Aggies.

A few Friday notes
Dallas Kimball Ishmael Ibraheem has been firmly on the radar from Day 1 and I was told by sources close to his recruitment Ibraheem has been in contact with coach Rushing and is making plans to visit. I don't believe a date has been set but a March visit is something to watch out for. Texas and LSU are a few schools to watch there as well. The communication has also picked up between coach Henson and Duncanville OL Savion Byrd and I have been told plans for a spring visit are in the works. There was talk he might make the Super Bowl party weekend but the ride fell through. The Aggies recently offered and things continue to progress.The same can also be said for defensive ends David Abiara and Shemar Turner. Abiara recently put the Aggies in his top 7 and he has some family ties to the Texas A&M. It does sound like Notre Dame made a strong move after his recent visit, but he continues to look at his options. With Turner, the Aggies remain in strong contention according to my sources along with the likes of Alabama, LSU, Texas, and others. Also, Royse City WR Ketron Jackson told us he has been in touch with coach Craig and he plans to return very soon.The Aggies have also been active with several out of state targets. One prospect Brauny brought up recently is Scottsdale (AZ) Saguaro OL Bram Walden. I'm told by sources in Arizona that he has kept in close contact with coach Henson, and a visit is in the works for this spring. I don't believe a date has been set, but it sounds promising. Recent OL Connor Tollison of Jackson (MO) will make an unofficial visit to A&M for the spring game the April 17 weekend. I'm told by people in Missouri, coach Henson already has a strong bond with Tollison and has some ties to the area going back to his days coaching at Missouri. One source also said the Aggies are keeping an eye on Blue Springs (MO) OL Beau Stephens. He's another big OL (6-6, 320), with some offers from the likes of Iowa, Arkansas, and Michigan..

Sunday recruiting notes & quotes
- While a lot of attention will be rightfully given to the in-state O-Line haul in 2021, I have been able to pick up a few notes on some out of state targets that A&M looks to be in good shape with early on. I'll start in the desert with Scottsdale (AZ) native Bram Walden. While the early favorite is Oregon, Jimbo Fisher and Josh Henson have been quietly forming a solid foundation with the 6-4, 285 pounder. It also helps that Walden plays a Saguaro HS - home of Aggie great Christian Kirk. I haven't yet heard of a definitive visit being set, but it absolutely wouldn't surprise me to see Walden make his way to campus at some point this spring. - Another highly touted big man that I think will find his way to College Station in the coming months is Fairfax (VA) OL Tristan Leigh. I don't know that any prospect on the east coast has seen their stock rise more since the end of the football season than Leigh. While it will be really tough to pry him away from somewhere like Clemson or even Alabama, I was told that Tristan and his family have a huge affinity for the state of Texas. Leigh's favorite team has always been the Dallas Cowboys, and I heard the family looks forward to getting to the Lone Star State any time they can for vacation or football. Leigh and Josh Henson have been talking more and more on the phone in recent weeks. - Don't be surprised to see Oklahoma State be a real player for North Shore OL Jaeden Roberts. If you'll remember, Roberts and his family moved to Houston from Kansas about a year ago, and one of his best friends from his time up there (Joe Michalski) looks like he may be able to grab a starting role next year from what I was told by a source familiar with the Okie St program. Roberts stays in pretty regular communication with A&M still though, and the Aggies will continue to recruit him as an interior OL prospect. - I spoke with Miami (FL) S Kamren Kinchens via text over the weekend. The Northwestern HS product told me he is in the process of scheduling a trip to Texas A&M. While he was unsure of the date and what type of visit it would be (official or unofficial), he was positive that he wanted to see what Aggieland had to offer. With the state of Texas being thin at safety in 2021 and A&M's growing presence in south Florida, Kinchens is a kid that could have some staying power on the Aggie radar this cycle. - I had a chance to catch up with 2022 DB offer Bobby Taylor who was one of the few rising juniors to be invited to last weekend's Super Bowl party. The Aggies offered Taylor back in October, and he's starting to grow rather familiar with the coaching staff and College Station, in general. Here's what he had to say about his latest visit..."I really enjoyed the defensive meetings with the coaching staff. That was my favorite part of the day, hands down. I love football. It's natural for me. So, when given the opportunity to down and talk about the game, it gives me chills. Talking with Coach Elko and Coach Rushing was fantastic. It doesn't get any better than those two guys.""I learned a lot about the Aggie Network...about the Fortune 500 companies that Aggies are involved in. Football won't last forever, and when it's over, you have to have something to fall back on. It's so easy to build those connections, too. It can be something as simple as taking a picture or shaking a hand to get the whole thing started.""The coaching staff at A&M is just full of real, genuine guys. They're grounded and keep it real. Of course, when you play football you want to win, and those guys can make that happen. They complimented me on my press and man coverage skills. I love playing man. It just doesn't get any better than that. Me and the coaching staff agreed though that I know to work on my weaknesses which is playing off man. So, this spring I plan on working hard and perfecting it."...pretty well-spoken 16 year old. - An interesting RB name to keep an eye on in 2021 is Darius Hale from Pearland. Darrell Dickey made a couple of stops through there in his voyages through south Houston since the end of the season, and Hale is a kid that has caught the eye of a lot of college coaches. While his offer list isn't super lengthy just yet (Baylor, Houston, Utah State), he's intriguing because of his advanced strength and projectability as a power back. At 5-10, 215 pounds, Hale's low center of gravity and lower body mass make him a handful for tacklers. He was also in College Station last weekend for the Junior Day event. "Coach Fisher and Coach Dickey said they liked what they saw on film. They told me they intend to continue to recruit and evaluate me heavily going forward. Coach Dickey is a great dude. We have an outstanding relationship," Hale told me following the visit. "I got to really see how important the running back is to their offense and how big of a role it plays into what they want to do."

Recruiting update - coaches hit the road and more
As expected, the A&M coaching staff hit the road with fervor today as the focus has turned to recruiting as we head into summer. Here's what we've been able to pick up from a few sources about a few expected stops...- Gruver (TE) Jalin Conyers will get a visit from Joe Jon Finley this week. The Aggies will likely push to get the Panhandle prospect into College Station for a visit later this spring or in the early summer. Conyers went to Austin for the Longhorns' spring game. - Defensive ends Coach Terry Price will hit Mississippi this week. He'll check in on the junior college conference out there as well as stop in to see Lucedals (MS) standout McKinnley Jackson. Today, I was told to expect A&M to be in the final group of schools for Jackson. We haven't heard much on McKinnley since the calendar turned to 2019, but it sounds like the Aggie coaches have been working all they can. A source told me today that Jackson will visit A&M this summer. Other top contenders are Clemson, Alabama, and LSU. - It sounds like Mesquite Poteet RB Seth McGowan is starting to finalize his visit schedule. According to a Dallas are source, A&M will get their official in May or June and are likely the only in-state program to get an OV. Georgia, USC, and Oklahoma will also get officials from what I know. - A&M DC Mike Elko was in the Metroplex today to check in on a handful of players. Denton Ryan ATH Drew Sanders and Little Elm CB Ryan Watts are two Oklahoma commits that Elko checked in on. As we reported last week, he was also in to see rising DB Christian Gonzalez out of The Colony. Tomorrow, a coach in the Hill Country tells me the Aggie DC will see Alfred Collins, Princely Umanmielen, and commit Jaylon Jones. - New 2021 OL offer out to 6-4, 270 pound Saguaro (AZ) OL Bram Walden. That's Christian Kirk's alma mater and one of the premier programs out in the desert. He's also got offers from Auburn, LSU, Michigan, Oregon, Oklahoma St, BYU, and Arizona State.

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.
