A few quick notes from a couple of Wednesday stops
I stopped by Lakeview Centennial today planning to see 2021 RB Camar Wheaton. He was not there, he got a root canal today, so I'm guessing my day was better than his. However, I did see a few interesting prospects. One I will be watching is 2022 DE AJ Barton. He checks in at 6-4, 215 and his father, Andre Barton, Sr., played defensive tackle at Ferris State in Michigan so he has some bloodlines. He is also a baseball guy, so he will likely be one of Brauny's favorites. He is still very raw but the length and frame definitely caught my attention. Coaches also talked about his character which is always a good thing in my book, and he has impressed during offseason workouts. https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1131325077356720128Lakeview Centennial's 2021 class also includes a couple of big boys in the trenches. DT Ike Iwunnah (6-2, 250) and OG Rickey Smallwood (6-5, 280) both have a chance to catch the attention of coaches. The next stop was to Bishop Dunne for the Falcon's spring game. I was mainly focused on the underclassmen Jordan Crook (LB) and Landon Hullaby (ATH). Both have received offers from Kansas, Illinois State, Georgia Tech, and USC and today there were coaches in attendance from Texas, Iowa, Tulsa, Oregon, and Wyoming to check out them and other talents.Crook really turned my head over the course of the spring game. He was quick to sift through traffic and he came off the edge with some heat. The most impressive thing was his motor. He was always on the go as you can see below.https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1131339472770146304Hullaby, who has played RB/CB/S for Bishop Dunne and is the little brother of Texas commit Jaden Hullaby , made an immediate impression as he came crashing down from his safety spot to plant a WR in open field and cause a fumble. It was text book. I got to see him play a little CB as well. Very good size, especially for a young guy. Both are guys the Aggies are keeping an eye on right now. ***********Also a few top school lists for you guys just in case you missed themNorcross (GA) Greater Atlanta Christian 2020 LB Choe Bryant-Strother https://twitter.com/ChoeBryant/status/1131243494331289603New Orleans (LA) Warren Easton 2020 OL Sedrick Van Pran https://twitter.com/LXIII_NOVA/status/1131259061972930561Watson (LA) Live Oak 2020 DT Jalen Lee https://twitter.com/jalenlee__/status/1130515735887978496

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.”
