UPDATE: Cooper plans to announce his college choice Monday on his instagram page. He has not set a time.Make sure to follow the Instagram -rj.coop pic.twitter.com/JTtl23bt0J— Ernest “RJ” Cooper (@RJ_COOPER44) August 21, 2021 **********Arlington (TX) Martin 2022 defensive end Ernest Cooper IV has been a prospect on my personal watch list for quite some time, and a couple of weeks ago he told TexAgs he hoped to make a decision between Stanford and Texas A&M before the end of summer. Well, I'm told by sources he does indeed plan to announce a decision soon. I'm still waiting on the exact timeline and details at this time.He took official visits to both schools in June, and following his official visit to Texas A&M he announced a top two of Stanford and Texas A&M. He has also been vocal about trying to make an early decision and education is a big factor in his thought process. Cooper has played his cards close to the vest throughout his recruiting process and kept us all guessing. I have always thought the Aggies were a strong candidate for his commitment even when others counted them out, but Stanford has been a long time favorite. If I had to pick right now, I'd lean towards Stanford and their academics, but it's a close one in my mind.

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.”
