Unoffered names to keep an eye on
As we get ready to undertake a full slate of Texas HS football this week, I thought it'd be a good refresher to list all the names we are monitoring in terms of A&M involvement as the season unfolds. Now, we are not saying all these kids are in-line for offers. Rather, these are kids that with a few weeks of strong tape could put themselves on the Aggie radar. I'll predominantly take care of the greater Houston area guys and leave Dallas up to Howell. Jason, if I miss anyone, feel free to add them. 2021RBAlton McCaskill - Conroe Oak RidgeOLRemington Strickland - Ft Bend ChristianCole Carson - Bogota Rivercrest (Arkansas)Kamron Scott - Converse Judson (UTSA)Canon Boone - Dickinson (Virginia Tech)Gabe Blair - Denton GuyerEzra Oyetade - Garland Lakeview Centennial (Arizona State)Jack Leyrer - Dallas Highland Park (Stanford)Jack Tucker - Argyle (Texas Tech)Tate Williams - Wall (Baylor)TEMason Tharp - Klein (Texas Tech)WRJohn Paul Richardson - Ft Bend Ridge Point (Oklahoma State)Nehemiah Noel - Galveston BallJerand Bradley - DeSoto (Texas Tech)DTByron Murphy II - DeSoto (Baylor)DEJe'lin Samuels - Pasadena Sam RayburnLandyn Watson - Hutto (TCU)LBKeith Cooper - Dickinson SCaleb Ellis - Frisco Independence (Stanford)2022QBCade Klubnik - Austin WestlakeConner Weigman - BridgelandNick Evers - Flower MoundRBJamarion Miller - Tyler LegacyHymond Drinkard - George RanchDamien Brown - LeonardOLCory Hendrix - College StationJihad Lateef - Lubbock EstacadoEthan Sanders - San Antonio ChristianNeto Umeozulu - AllenSheridan Wilson - ArgyleCaden Kitler - Plano John Paul IIErik Gray - AmarilloTETrent McGaughey - Shadow CreekHouston Thomas - College StationCody Mladenka - The Woodlands College ParkOmari Murdock - AllenWRRandy Masters - Shadow CreekJeremy Patton - TenahaKeith Wheeler II - AtascocitaAnthony Black - CoppellDTTre Emory - Mt PleasantKris Ross - North ShoreDETai Leonard - CyFallsDeMone Green - Houston HeightsCurlee Thomas - Fort Worth Nolan CatholicLBTy Kana - KatyJustin Medlock - ManvelOwen Pewee - CyParkNic Caraway - BryanBralon Jones - SpringJordan Crook - DuncanvilleTrevell Johnson - Arlington MartinTyrell Johnson - Arlington MartinCB Eric Hemphill III - BrenhamChandler Rivers - Beaumont UnitedDorian Friend - SpringJalon Peoples - Cedar HillSJacobe Chester - Ft Bend MarshallJaidan Scott - Shadow CreekDylan Dixson - PearlandSherrod Covil Jr. - North ShoreCollin Wright - ManvelKCarter Brown - Pearland Dawson

Saturday morning notes on some 2022's
Went out to Brenham last night to see the Cubs scrimmage against CyPark. I came into the evening knowing a lot about CB Eric Hemphill III and LB Harold Perkins, but I left with two more names I'll be keeping an eye on - one of them very closely. I'll start with those first two, however. Be expecting a short interview with Perkins on the site shortly. We spoke for a couple of minutes after the game so I'll use this space to kind of breakdown what I saw. First of all, he's a supremely gifted athlete. We're talking top tier stuff in terms of his combination of speed, power, fluidity, explosiveness, change of direction, and first step. The best way I could describe him is smooth suddenness. There isn't an athletic box that he doesn't check with flying colors. He played primarily OLB on the evening and glided across the field to be around the football all night. Offensively, he scored the scrimmage's first touchdown on a 9-yard run where he hurdled a defender at about the 5 and waltzed into the end zone. We have in our top 10 in the class of 2022, and he'll stay there comfortably after seeing him play for the first time. This kid has athletic talent coming out of his ears. Perkins video from Twitter's pretty incredible to me that Eric Hemphill only has one offer at this juncture. Yes, he's a little undersized, but this kid can flat out cover. He had an interception during last night that would have resulted in a pick 6 had the refs not blown it dead due to it being a scrimmage setting. His change of direction is fantastic, and he consistently plays with good leverage and technique. I like him a lot as a slot/nickel corner prospect. He's also got great top-end speed. I'd look for that offer list to really expand as soon as the junior tape starts making the rounds. From what I understand, A&M has been in contact with Hemphill fairly regularly.Hemphill video from Twitter ready to know the name Owen Pewee (pronounced Pee-Wee). The 6-3, 200 pound junior outside linebacker is also a talented basketball player, but he's poised to blow up on the recruiting scene on the gridiron soon. UH offered earlier this month, and if he plays in live game action like he did last night, he'll be adding a lot of schools to that offer list shortly. He was all over the field. Long, rangy, twitchy and plays with a mean streak. The CyPark staff told me before the game that they thought they had a hidden gem, and they were right. He won't be hidden much longer with games like that though. I was told by some folks there that the Aggies have started to take more of an interest in Pewee here in the last couple of weeks. Pewee video from Twitter strong first impression came from 2022 Brenham WR Cam Richardson. He's a big framed wideout who is long-striding, fluid runner. He scored on a 3 really long catch and runs last night - each time pulling away from CyPark defenders once he got the ball in his hands. He's got a chance to be a Power 5 player in my eyes.

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.”
