A few Thursday recruiting news, notes, and thoughts
I had the opportunity to hit the road this week and head north this week. The first stop was at Fort Smith (AR) Northside to check in with Texas A&M cornerback commit Dreyden Norwood. He is a legitimate 6-foot, 185, and he is still on the skinny side. His long arms give him some nice length on his lean build and the word "smooth" kept coming up when talking to his coaches. It did not take long to see what that meant. He is a fluid athlete and he easily flips his hips. He is quick out of his transition and while he is quick it looks effortless. Norwood worked at quarterback early in practice, but spent great majority of the day at cornerback. His coaches have seen some standout DBs at Northside over the years and they were raving about Norwood's ability and potential. They know what DBs are supposed to look like too with stud corners Tre Norwood (Oklahoma 2017) and Kiondre Thomas (Minnesota 2016) coming out of the program in recent years, and they feel the sky is the limit for Dreyden.https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1288525876515213313?s=20Arkansas schools are limited in what they can do as far as workouts right now, so they were mostly doing position drills and going over schemes. That said his athleticism showed in drills, and he led the way in post-practice sprints. He has kind of a Scooby Carter type build, and he's as fluid as anyone in the state of Texas in the 2021 DB class. Norwood does not plan to enroll early, but he did have a quick message for the Aggie fans out therehttps://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1288527068062457856?s=20We will have more from him in the next day or so.***************The other stop on my tour was to Beggs, Oklahoma, where I was able to get my first look at Texas A&M priority S target Kendal Daniels. He is all of 6-foot-4 and he now checks in at 190-pounds. One thing I will say is he is not a skinny-framed guy and he passes the eyeball test with flying colors. I did not get a chance to see him workout, but we did catch up for a quick interview which will be posted shortly. As many of you know, he will announce his college choice on Saturday, August 1, at about 6:30 p.m. His finalists are Clemson, LSU, Oklahoma, and Texas A&M. The Aggies have been trending in the last few weeks and it was clear from our conversation he likes what he has seen from the Aggies. Coach Ish Aristide is one big reason the Aggies are a finalists, and it was evident the two have formed a strong bond. Honestly, I'm not sure who I would compare Daniels to, but I have no doubt after seeing him in person and watching his film that he has potential to be a big time defensive playmaker. **********A few other notes Texarkana Pleasant Grove DT Marcus Burris announced a top three of Oklahoma, Texas, and Texas A&M and all three are in pursuit. That said, it does not sound like much has changed from our recent conversation with Burris when he named OU and A&M his top two. I look for his decision to come down to the Sooners and the Aggies in the end. I also hear the Aggies continue to have some positive momentum with DeSoto standout Shemar Turner. I have heard from some sources the pull of the SEC is a positive and he is aware of the success several former DeSoto standouts have had in College Station. There's still work to be done, but things continue to trend in a positive direction. Push comes to shove, I would give the Aggies a bit of an edge right now. In the 2023 class the Aggies hosted Wylie East DE Anthony James for a virtual tour, and he was able to communicate with head coach Jimbo Fisher. He toured the athletic facilities and the dorms and he said the coaches let him know he was a priority for 2023. Texas A&M is a school he has always liked, but they opened his eyes to how Texas A&M has developed DEs and the opportunities Texas A&M can provide beyond football.https://twitter.com/AntJamesII/status/1288663248796028929?s=20

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.
