A few Wednesday notes and thoughts
*It's not over til it's over attitude - This is not a unique attitude to Jimbo Fisher and his staff, but it is an attitude the Aggies have on the recruiting front. It is also why I always emphasize the fact there is a long way to go when a guy Texas A&M has prioritized seems to start leaning elsewhere. It does not mean it always works out in A&M's favor, but it does mean they don't quit even when things look bleak. There have also been several instances it has played out well. Here's a few from the last few years-When DL Bobby Brown was all but done with A&M and fully committed to Alabama with less than a month before signing day in 2018-When LB Antonio Doyle committed to Mizzou ahead of the 2019 season-When Donell Harris looked like he was all but headed to LSU and then to Florida in the 2020 class-When Akinola Ogunbiyi was committed to Georgia -McKinnley Jackson, Derick Hunter, and several others* LJ Johnson Jr - Does Texas have some momentum? Yes. But, let's not freak out over a few crystal balls. I look for the Aggies to continue to work and remain in the fight for a long time. Coach Fisher and RB coach Tommie Robinson have established a good bond there. You guys know I see Johnson as one of the top priorities for the Aggies in the 2021 cycle, and.losing out on him would be not be ideal. But like I said, there are still plenty of reasons I could see the Aggies being able to swing the momentum back in their favor.*A few guys I could see being offered - I don't have many guys in the 2021 class. I could see OL Cole Carson being a guy to watch though. He has had coach Henson's eye since before the offers started to roll in and before he committed to Arkansas. I've also mentioned Denton Guyer OL Gabe Blair before too. Blair is one of my personal favorites - smart, nasty, strong - but he's on the short side and projects inside as opposed to the OT he's played the last few years at Guyer. If the Aggies look for an interior spot, I could see these guys getting a hard look. In 2022 Brauny has talked about QBs Cade Klubnik and Conner Weigman and LB Justin Medlock. Those would probably be my next in-state 2022s. *A few guys I would like to see offered - I'm beating the drum for DeSoto DT Byron Murphy II (Baylor commit), Austin LBJ S Andrew Mukuba, and Dallas Kimball RB Brandon Epton (SMU commit). Murphy is a wrecking ball in the middle. Mukuba is a smart, rangy, aggressive player on the backend. Epton has a good size, a solid build, and he can be an every down back and contribute on special teams.*A few standouts I've seen recently - I was at the Trench Warfare camp on Saturday and here's a few guys who stood out to me.-OL Lajuan Owens, Keller Fossil Ridge (2023) His feet jumped out to me. He was dancing out there during 1-on-1s and he has some long arms and a nasty streak. He tossed a few guys to the ground with ease.-OL Zavier Leonard, Arlington Sam Houston (2021) at 6-4, 293, Leonard has a flat belly, he's athletic, and he's raw. This is a guy with high P5 potential if he can put the right kind of tape down in 2020.-OL Hunter Erb, Haslet Eaton (2022) big framed, long arms, bends well, light on his feet. I'm quickly becoming a fan. His time will come.-OL Jackson Newville, Allen (2022) mean and nasty and he plays through the echo of the whistle. He trains with former Texas A&M standout Patrick Lewis.-OL Noah Ponce, Fort Worth Nolan Catholic (2023) he's a bit undersized at 6-1, but he is smart and plays with great technique. He's one to watch in that 2023 class.-DE Caleb Mitchell, DeSoto (2024) I know I have mentioned him before, but he is twitchy off the edge and he has people buzzing down in DeSoto.-DL Kaleb James, Fort Worth Nolan Catholic (2023) strong, lean, big framed, I could see him developing into a DT as he continues to grow. -DL Aaron Austin, North Crowley (2022) 6-3, 250 and he has the look of one of those hybrid DLs we have grown to love. He is quick off the ball, he has long arms, already has a stout build, and he showed well on Saturday.

A few notes from today's RB/LB camp in Dallas
I had another chance to see DeSoto 2023 Jaden Milliner-Jones today and I have no doubt in my mind this guy who will be a national recruit. He already has offers from Illinois State and SMU, and Texas A&M has shown some interest. He worked at LB today and could easily grow into a LB over the next few years. Right now I project him as a S at 5-11, 175. Regardless of where he projects, he is fast, physical, and full of potential. Today he was the best overall performer from either session. He was all over the field and he took on the best of the best. He is a high-major prospect who I believe will have offers from across the country in due time.https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1277014820752105473?s=20https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1277010889972088834?s=20The new face that impressed me the most today was Fort Worth South Hills 2021 LB Ca'lub Holloway. I had not seen him in person and he caught my attention from the second he walked into camp. He is a solid 6-1, 215 and he is a twitchy athlete. He is also very aggressive which could be seen as both a plus or a minus. That aggression made him off balance or out of position at times, but it was also nice to see the mentality. Also he had the length and speed to make up for being out of position in most cases today. He is a developmental type guy but this is the type of prospect who is capable of really blowing up. Right now he has offers from Illinois State, New Mexico, and Lamar. https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1277009852234162178?s=20Arlington Martin 2022 LBs Trevell Johnson and Tyrell Johnson - yes, they are twins - are already on A&M's radar. Travell is a little bigger at 6-foot, 195, and already holds offers from Arkansas, Baylor, Ole Miss, SMU, Boston College, and Buffalo. Tyrell is right around 5-11 and 185. Both have some growing to do and they are known for their ability to find the ball. They both showed some nice lateral quickness and change of direction on the day.https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1277046190941581313?s=20Another guy already on Texas A&M's radar is Fort Worth Nolan Catholic 2022 LB/Edge Vincent Paige. He is currently a bit of a tweener at 6-2, 220, but he is at his best when he comes screaming off the edge. He has been a standout performer at DE at a few camps, but his size also has colleges wanting to see how he does at ILB. His lateral quickness and change of direction are both things he has been working hard to improve. Today pushed him and I look forward to seeing how he continues to develop. He already holds offers from Baylor, Cincinnati, UConn, and Syracuse.Then there is 2023 Lancaster LB Noah Boulieu. He is already 6-2, 210 and he has the build you look for in a future linebacker. I liked what I saw as far as his lateral movement and he was able to get deep downfield in coverage. It is very early, but this is a guy I could see emerging on A&M's radar at some point down the line. https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1277014292437614593?s=20On offense, SMU commit and Dallas Kimball RB Brandon Epton continues to be one of my favorites. The guy is versatile, has excellent size, and I think he has high P5 potential. SMU has an absolute steal. Longview 2021 RB and UTSA commit Kaden Meredith is another favorite of mine. He struggled catching the ball with consistency today, but he did have a great deep over the shoulder grab. The Colony 2023 APB Kamden Wesley showed up a little late but he immediately caught my attention. He is not the tallest, but he has a stout build at 5-6, 170 and he is a multi-purpose guy I could even see lining up in the slot. He brings a lot of speed and explosiveness to the table. He was always open and did a great job of adjusting to the ball. I am not ready to say he needs to be on A&M's radar right now but I could see him developing into one over time.https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1276964666401579011?s=20Allen's duo of 2021 RB Jaylen Jenkins (2022) and Jordan Johnson (2021) were also impressive on the day.A couple of 2024 running backs turned my head today. In the first session It was Keiran Patrick-Daniels out of Fort Worth Brewer. In the second session it was Aledo 2024 Davhon Keys. Both showed quite a bit of promise and already have some size to work with.

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.

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)
