Some Thursday morning recruiting notes
Last night the Aggies made the cut for Philadelphia (PA) Northeast DE Elijah Jeudy and CB Tyreek Chappell. These two are not necessarily a package deal, but they have played together since the 6th grade, they have a great chemistry, and playing together on the college level is something that would interest both. Chappell has yet to visit Texas A&M, but he did play in the Madden tournament, he loves the weather and the coaches, and he also has family in the Dallas-area. St. James (LA) defensive end Saivion Jones has been speaking with coach Terry Price on a regular basis. The two are starting to build a strong bond with TP sending a few BBQ pics out to the Louisiana standout. Jones has not visited anywhere outside of Louisiana yet, and LSU is going to be a tough one to beat. However, in talking with a source down in Louisiana the Aggies seem to be gaining some ground. I spoke to a few sources on some top linebackers and the Aggies are very involved with some heavy hitters. Hyattsville (MD) DeMatha LB Greg Penn named Texas A&M in his Final 6. Alabama, LSU, Tennessee, and South Carolina also made the cut. He planned to get to College Station before the coronavirus canceled everything, but I look for him to make a trip once the dead period is over. Baltimore (MD) St. Frances LB Jamon Dumas-Johnson and Hollywood (FL) Chaminade-Madonna LB Terrence Lewis also named the Aggies to their top lists and the Aggies are very much in the mix. Several other LBs were planning to check out the Aggies this spring. Dallas (GA) Paulding Co LB Smael Mondon, Charlotte (NC) Hough LB Kaci Seegars, and Fort Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas LB Jaydon Hood all had spring visits planned for Texas A&M. I'm told by sources out in Georgia that Mondon has been a tough read when it comes to his leaders, but the good news for Texas A&M is he has been in consistent communication with coach Santucci, coach Elko, and coach Fisher. Kaci Seegars recently added offers from Missouri, Kansas State, and NC State, but the Aggies continue to be in a great spot thanks in large part to the relationship he has formed with coach Santucci the last few years. In fact, I've heard from some sources the Aggies may hold the lead. He spoke with Santucci this week and he says he definitely plans to visit when the dead period ends. Hood says he is in regular contact with the Aggies and coach Santucci. The two have built a strong bond and he has hit it off well with the Texas A&M linebacker coach. He planned to take several visits this spring, so he has been hitting the virtual tour circuit. Of all the virtual experiences so far he gave highest marks to Minnesota's virtual tour. Kendrick Blackshire and Terrence Cooks are the two uncommitted in-state prospects holding Texas A&M offers and in talking to different sources the Aggies remain in good position with both. If you are looking for a couple of in-state LBs without offers to keep an eye on there are two DFW prospects who come to mind. One is South Oak Cliff LB Jaydon Williams. He is a twitchy undersized prospect, around 185-pounds, but he did visit this spring and he has been one of the hotter prospects in Texas this spring. He just picked up an offer from Texas yesterday. Another in-state guy to keep an eye on is Arlington Martin LB Morice Blackwell. He has been in contact with coach Santucci and the two continue to get to know each other. Blackwell stands in at about 6-foot-1, 200, and has some great tape. An out of state guy I really like is Jonesboro (AR) LB Marco Avant. He just committed to Arkansas and he does not have an offer yet, but he has visited and he fell in love with College Station on his trip. He may be a name to tuck away for later.

Some Saturday quick hitters
Spent my morning and early afternoon at the 7 on 7 event in The Woodlands and was able to catch up with quite a few top prospects and A&M targets. I'll see if I can rifle these off bullet style. - Dematrius Davis told me he still speaks with Darrell Dickey and will very likely take a trip or two to College Station this spring. - Both Landen King and Ben Postma have begun to get to know TE coach James Coley. King is hearing a lot from Oklahoma St, Texas, and Texas Tech. Postma has some Big 12 visits lined up but will also be back in Aggieland in April. - 2022 CB offer Bobby Taylor has been getting a big push from Oklahoma, but he says he'll be at A&M for a practice in April. Taylor told me he's known TJ Rushing since his days at Memphis and is a fan of the way he teaches his corners. - Texas LB commit Derrick Harris Jr did not mention A&M when discussing schools that were still contacting him. - Plant City (FL) WR Mario Williams told me he's trying to line up a visit to Texas A&M. He said the only coach he talks to on staff is Jimbo Fisher. Nothing had been set up to this point in regards to that visit though. - 2022 CB offer Denver Harris says he hasn't set up any spring visits, but it's likely he'll make a trip or two to College Station. - I was told WR commit Shadrach Banks is very close to returning to 100%. Good news there. - Priority CB target Deuce Harmon confirmed with me that he will be on campus tomorrow for a day visit. He said he may take an official visit to Texas A&M soon, but he wasn't totally sure on that yet.- Dallas Kimball CB Ishmael Ibraheem will also be in town soon to watch practice. Oklahoma is a primary competitor, but the folks I talked to made it seem like A&M was right there. - Forrest City (AR) LB Marco Avant has been drawing interest from a few SEC programs with the Aggies being one of them. The 6-3, 215 pounder definitely has the frame of a backer in this conference. - Sounds like recent Baylor S commit Cisco Caston out of Weatherford will be making a quick trip up to College Station tonight to take a tour and visit with the staff.

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.”
