News & Notes from OL/DL camp
Headed down to Houston for the HawgPen OL/DL camp yesterday morning. There were a handful of top-flight prospects there competing, including a pair of big time 2022 A&M targets in DE Malick Sylla and OL Kelvin Banks. Here are some key takeaways and some video from the workout...- I'll start with Sylla. To be frank, this kid is as good looking of a DE prospect as I've ever seen. The only other kid I saw with this much upside as a junior-to-be was DeMarvin Leal. Sylla is 6-6, 235 with a massive wingspan, high waist, and broad shoulders. He'll hold 25 pounds fairly easy. His drill work was probably more impressive than his physical measurables though. He was fluid, explosive, and showed an elite change of direction and explosiveness. In 1-on-1's, he used that quickness to exploit oversetting offensive lineman and then used his length and dexterity to bend the edge a couple of times. In terms of his recruitment, he said he talks to members of the A&M staff constantly. Whether it's Jimbo Fisher, Terry Price, MIke Elko, or Elijah Robinson, somebody is making sure they reach out to Malick each week. He said he loves talking with TP and is excited by the comparisons they're making to Myles Garrett. He said TP's resume speaks for itself, and he could definitely see himself playing under Price's tutelage. The only person who got the best of Sylla (and everyone else he went up against) was Summer Creek OL Kelvin Banks who turned in one of the better camp performances I've ever seen from an offensive lineman. He was flat out dominant, and it didn't matter who lined up across from him. I told Billy and Jason after the camp that we probably need to start discussing this kid as a top 10 player in the state in that loaded junior class. He combined power with outstanding lateral ability and patience to consistently stifle guys like Sylla, Texas commit Jordon Thomas, and rising 2022 DL Anthony Holmes Jr. Banks won the OL MVP. Check out the video. told me A&M is one of his top choices right now. He said he would be talking with Josh Henson this week, and that the Aggie OL coach always makes it a point to reach out to him after he sees more video of Kelvin popping up on Twitter. Banks mentioned his tight bond with Kameron Dewberry and how often Kam talks about the two of them playing together at the next level. I suspect the Aggies will be a key player for both Banks and Dewberry throughout the entirety of their recruitments. - Speaking of Anthony Holmes, the Spring Westfield product took home DL MVP for his performance. While he's a bit undersized still, he flashed exceptional quickness to go along with surprising power. He's an interesting kid. If he can put on some good weight, I like him as a tackle making, sideline to sideline interior DL prospect. Lastly, here's a name to keep an eye on: 2023 Katy Taylor ATH Dylan Spencer. He's coming over to Houston after spending his freshman year at West Orange-Stark in the Golden Triangle, and he checks in at 6-4, 235. He played WR last season, but he's starting to make the transition to defensive end and caught the attention of all the media members there. Big upside on this kid.

Tuesday morning recruiting quick hitters
- I checked in with some sources on long time WR commit Shadrach Banks, and it still sounds like he's all-in with the Aggies. I was told he's having productive, upbeat conversations with the coaching staff. - A north Houston contact of mine told me that A&M is in a nice spot early on for 2022 CyPark LB Harold Perkins. I was also told Perkins, Kameron Dewberry, and Donovan Green are all close and converse quite a bit about their futures. I'll have an interview up with Dewberry today, but he did tell me after the interview concluded that "A&M is way up there on my list." My source on Perkins also added that he believed Perkins' athletic traits were elite on a national level and thought the kid was a top 5 player in the state in 2022. - Checked around yesterday on where A&M stood at corner with Tony Grimes trending favorably toward North Carolina. The names haven't changed, but A&M continues to be the pace setters for Tyreek Chappell and are doing admirable groundwork with MJ Daniels. I was also told that Dreyden Norwood is a bit tougher read, but Mike Elko and TJ Rushing are in there trading blows with a handful of teams around the region. - Speaking of trading blows, that's how A&M's standing with Desoto DE Shemar Turner was described to me. Howell has been all over this one, and I'll let him comment further if necessary, but it sounds like Alabama and LSU are going to go the distance in this one with the Aggies. - 2022 name to know: Spring Westfield DL Anthony Holmes Jr. He's a big defensive end that could wind up as an interior prospect, and he's got some real twitch and explosiveness to his game. We've talked about how loaded 2022 is, but it is a little light at defensive tackle.

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)

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.”
