Weekend High School Football Thread
It's football time and Brauny and I are out checking in on a few prospects.Tonight I am in Mesquite for Poteet/Texas High. OU commit Seth McGowan leads the way for Poteet, and TE Tristan Golightly is another top prospect to keep an eye on. Texas High is home to 2021 standout LB Clayton Smith. This will be my first chance to see him this fall so I'm pretty excited to check him out.Brauny is also out making the rounds tonight. He will be at Katy Taylor/Cinco Ranch checking in on 2021 key target Bryce Foster. It also sounds like Texas A&M commit Braedon Mowry will be in attendance as well. Tomorrow I'll be back in Mesquite to watch Texas A&M commit Haynes King and Longview take on Mesquite Horn. Brauny will be at College Park/Oak Ridge checking in with OL commit Josh Bankhead Word on the street is Hop will be off the road this weekend as he preps for Alabama's arrival in College Station.

Prime 21 Camp Thread (Post Camp Thoughts, Recruiting Notes, Primer, and Highlights)
Post Camp Thoughts-The Texas QB talent in 2021 is flat out nasty. Behren Morton Dematrius Davis Garrett Nussmeier all showed very well on the day and caught my attention at different points during the camp.-The LBs really jumped out to me. Derrick Harris Jr is making a strong case to be my favorite all-around LB in Texas for 2021. Love the frame, the length, his quickness, and ability against the run and in coverage. He is a stud. Clayton Smith is more of an OLB/edge guy in my mind but he showed he could do some damage in coverage. 2022 Kobie McKinzie is a name to remember and while Jordan Crook has a compact build he is stout, smart, and quick. -FL WR Mario Williams and Allen WR Bryson Green made some highlight reel plays in one-on-ones. It didn't matter what DBs did those two made plays. Isaiah Brevard had a strong showing in 7-on-7 action. J Michael Sturdivant turned plenty of heads with his play. He's a fluid runner with size. Jaedon Wilson started off slow, but picked things up nicely. His route running kept DBs off balance throughout the day. Armani Winfield was also a standout. He just makes it look effortless. As for Skyline WR and Texas commit Quaydarius Davis, he was really good as well. His hands were a little inconsistent, but he brings the swagger, and physical play and speed to the table that is undeniable. He also tries to get a little too cute when he feels like things are too easy and I think that's part of what happened yesterday.-When it came to DBs the names Hunter Washington Jimmy Wyrick and Kavian Gaither kept popping up. All three were in lock down mode throughout the day. I also liked what I saw from Ishmael Ibraheem. At S JD Coffey has added some nice weight and plays with great instincts, and Kaine Williams is an enforcer on the back end. A new name to keep an eye on is Cy Ranch S Romario Noel. His size and physical play were two things that jumped out to me. ***********Recruiting NotesNew Caney LB Derrick Harris Jr - 2021-Texas A&M, Texas, Miami, and Baylor are schools that stand out right now. -the family feeling at A&M stood out.-Coach Peveto will coach you and tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear.-He will be at the A&M BBQ on Friday.Galena Park North Shore QB Dematrius Davis - 2021-Florida State, Texas A&M, Nebraska, Baylor standout right now.-The great offense and Jimbo Fisher being there long term make A&M stand out.-He will visit LSU (July 25), Baylor and Texas A&M (July 26), Baylor (July 27), Georgia, Virginia Tech, Alabama, and Clemson.-He plans to wait until around October to make a decision so he can talk to coaches early in the fall and find out more about their interest.Marrero (LA) John Ehret S Kaine Williams - 2021-LSU, Texas A&M, Alabama, and Florida were a few schools he said have his attention right now.-the facilities, the school, and the coaches stand out about the Aggies-He visited College Station in the spring, it was his first trip, and he said it felt like he was still in Louisiana-No trips plannedSeffner (FL) Armwood WR Agiye Hall - 2021-named his top 12 and they're the teams who pass the ball, put people in the NFL, and have coaches he feels he can trust.-Clemson, Georgia, and Florida were a few schools that stood out from his spring trips.-When it comes to Texas A&M, Jimbo Fisher is his guy and he is building that relationship. -Coach Fisher is cool and he knows what he is talking about.-OU, Texas, LSU, and USC visits are on his schedule, and he plans to visit Texas A&M and LSU during his bye week this fall.Cibolo Steele DB Kaleb Higgins - 2021-He is moving to Folsom (CA) before the fall.-Spent three days at A&M camp this summer and earned an offer-Also holds offers from Baylor and Boston College-No big preseason trips on the schedule right now, planning to visit Texas A&M for the Alabama game with Jaylon JonesLewisville WR Armani Winfield - 2022-Camped at Texas and Texas A&M-How the Aggies greeted him really caught his attention-He likes how close it is to home, that they're in the SEC, and that they throw the ball.-He will visit A&M for the BBQ July 26, he will visit OU for their BBQ.Southaven (MS) WR Isaiah Brevard - 2021 -Excited to compete and learn from Deion Sanders-Worked on his speed and route running this summer -Went to camps at Texas A&M, Ole Miss-Loved Jimbo Fisher and the coaching staff, especially the WR coach, gonna be back up there soonTexarkana Texas High LB Clayton Smith - 2021-Ready to learn from Deion, influences how he played, wants to see how he measured up against competition -Really loved the Texas A&M camp and LSU camp, plans to go back to the LSU camp.-School showing most interest is UT, already been down for a visit and said it was a good place-Likes the coaches at A&M, relationship is still growingFort Worth Nolan Catholic RB Emeka Megwa - 2022-Ready to get better at the camp, focused on his speed the offseason-Went to Alabama and Texas A&M camps-Jay Graham stood out to him at A&MLewisville Hebron RB Isaiah Broadway - 2022 -Excited to brush off the dust at the camp, hasn't been to camps -Schools looking at him are Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M-Hasn't been able to go down to visit but wants to and build the relationships with the coaches-Excited for his upcoming season with his new OCDallas Bishop Dunne LB Jordan Crook -

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)

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.”
