Elite Underclassmen Camp Notes and Thoughts
Yesterday Brauny and I were in Houston for the Elite Underclassmen Camp at CE King and I had a few thoughts and notes I wanted to share. I'm sure Brauny will chime in as well.-Let's kick things off with WR commit Noah Thomas and CB target Julian Humphrey. Both were in the final group and coming off strong track performances the day before, so I don't think we saw them at the top of their game yesterday. Both are top flight athletes though and there is definitely a lot to like. Thomas has great length and he is just scratching the surface as a receiver. As he adds weight to his frame, he is going to be fun to watch. Humphrey is one of the more well put together DB prospects you will find. In one-on-ones I thought both showed promise. He got caught clutching and grabbing a few times but his last rep he made a great break to challenge a catch. I look forward to seeing both again soon. -The OL/DL was the first group, and 2022 CE King OL Van Wells walked away with the OL MVP. I would say he was the most impressive performer of either group. It is not often where a 1-on-1 receives applause from the crowd but parents and coaches in the stands let him know they appreciated his efforts after a couple of physical reps from his center position. This is not the first time Wells has earned MVP honors at a camp either. I saw him claim MVP honors at another camp earlier this year and I believe he won those honors at another camp in the last couple of months. Wells already has some offers but right at 6-foot-2, his height is the big knock. He is very smart, athletic, and explosive. He actually was an h-back/tight end before moving to center full time last fall. He also played basketball before focusing on football. There is no doubt in my mind this guy is going to be a steal for some P5 at center, and see the field very quickly. He holds offers from several group of 5 programs, but Maryland became the first P5 to offer in mid-April.-The guy who made the biggest impression on me was Colton Thomasson. The 2023 Smithson Valley standout has been working hard the last few years and he has reshaped his body. He checks in at a solid 330 and at 6-7 he wears it well. His flexibility and footwork have improved greatly since I last saw him at Texas A&M's camp between his eight and ninth grade year. I mean, that is to be expected, but it was very nice to see. If he continues to work and progress, I could see him turning into a real Texas A&M OL target in the 2023 class. He was in College Station on Saturday and he enjoyed what he saw and he will be back at camp in June.

Yesterday was the second time I got to see him work in person and the third time I have laid eyes on him this spring and he has some really great tools. He has the frame to add some really good weight and he is pretty lean. His footwork and flexibility continue to catch my attention. I know he is one Brauny has been talking about for awhile and he is definitely on Texas A&M's radar. Another nice rep from @cayden_bowie pic.twitter.com/fVbqpBBoIb— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) April 25, 2021 -On the DL, CE King 2023 DL and Texas A&M offer Dylan Spencer definitely looked the part. He is a big framed, long armed prospect and has plenty of room to grow. He showed some nice quickness through drills and I particularly liked watching him running the L drill showing his burst and flexibility. This was my first time seeing him in person and he definitely made a strong impression.Dylan Spencer (@Trilldyl8) doing damage pic.twitter.com/zitgPY0Lih— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) April 25, 2021 -I was really looking forward to seeing Converse Judson 2023 DL Johnny Bowens and he did not disappoint. Checking in at 6-3, 250, he shows well on tape. He is a d-end but I could see him being a versatile type DL. He only did two reps during one-on-ones, both were at 3-tech. It was the first time he worked there so it was a bit of a learning experience. Still you could see the athleticism throughout and he is a guy I look forward to watching over the next few years. He already has an offer from UTSA and he said Baylor and Texas are showing interest. He also talks to DeMarvin Leal a bit about Texas A&M. I could see him turning some heads this summer on the camp circuit and see him as a P5 prospect.Converse Judson 2023 DE Johnny Bowens III (@D1Bowens) working the L drill. pic.twitter.com/CSjdhpoztM— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) April 25, 2021 -Cy Ranch 2023 DE Ashton Porter also had a strong day. He showed some really nice burst off the edge and looked really good in drills in testing. -McKinney 2024 Xavier Filsaime is a name you guys are going to want to write down. He passes the eyeball test with flying colors and he has precision footwork and routes. He will be a national prospect in his class.Another explosive rep for McKinney 2024 WR Xavier Filsaime (@XEF_19) pic.twitter.com/DQt0zG8Tsu— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) April 25, 2021 -Austin Westlake 2023 WR/TE Jaden Greathouse is one stout looking prospect. He showed well throughout drills and I like the thought of him being an H-back type.-Lucas Lovejoy 2022 TE Omari Murdock continues to impress. He has been working on his feet and routes and it showed on Sunday. He was quick getting out of his breaks yesterday.-Bryan LB Nic Caraway continues to look like a million bucks when he shows up. -Keller Fossil Ridge 2023 RB Landen Chambers continues to catch my eye. He already has some nice size and once again he showed a versatile skillset.-San Antonio Christian OL Ethan Sanders is primed to see his offer list grow this spring. The 2022 standout has the size and he is among the favorite to claim gold in the discus (176) and shot put (58-8) at the TAPPS State Championships. -Dickinson 2023 CB Vernon Glover was a wet blanket yesterday. He stayed in the hip pocket and it seemed like every time I turned around he was jumping up to make an INT. -Addison Trinity Christian 2023 TE Luke Johnston continues to turn heads at 6-5, 225 and he has the makings of a true in-line tight end. Clemson and Georgia have both reached out about him getting to camp and he plans to attend camp at Texas A&M, Oklahoma, and Arkansas as well. -Denton Guyer 2022 LB and North Texas commit Vincent Paige has done a great job of slimming down and becoming more of a true LB. He once checked in at around 230 and now he is more in the 205 range and he is showing better lateral movement and flexibility. He earned LB MVP honors on the day.

Notes and thoughts from the state championships
Thoughts of importance to A&M fans-Let's get this out of the way, Cade Klubnik put on a show last night. He was gutsy, he was smart, he showed some wheels, he threw with touch and velocity. He flat out got it done last night and he has done it all season long. Now we wait to see what happens on the offer front, but there is no doubt in my mind he made a strong case last night, and over the course of the season. Last night he was 18 of 20 for 220 yards and a TD and he had 17 carries for 97 yards and 2 TDs. -It was a quiet day for Katy 2022 Bobby Taylor and if you are a DB that is a good thing. There will not be many, if any, highlights of him from Katy's big win, but that just means he did his job. As a whole the Katy defense swarmed and disrupted any and everything Cedar Hill tried to do, and that includes severely limiting a Cedar Hill passing game known for its big play ability. -Denton Ryan's defense has more than a few prospects of interest and 2022 DT Bear Alexander and 2023 LB Anthony Hill definitely stood out in my mind. They were both on the attack Friday night. Alexander was quick off the ball, he worked his hands, and he was a consistent presence in the Cedar Park backfield. Then there was Anthony Hill making tackles all over the field, driving guys into the dirt and throwing them out of bounds, and playing with an all-around edge. I also liked what I saw from Austin Jordan on the night. That was a high-octane offensive attack they faced Friday night, and Jordan and the Ryan D were able to keep it grounded for the most part. Alexander had 5 tackles (3 solos, 2 assists), .5 a sack, and 2 pass break-ups, Hill recorded 10 tackles (5 solos, 5 assists), 2 sacks, and a forced fumble which was recovered for a Ryan score, and Jordan had 2 tackles and a PBU on the night. Some thoughts on some highly rated guys - WR JoJo Earle, Aledo - quick, fast, instinctive, he changes speeds as well as anyone in the country. I predict he does well at Alabama, I know I'm really going out on a limb there. Friday, he lined up all over the field for the Bearcats. He worked from the slot, as a wildcat QB, and Aledo does a great job of getting the ball in his hands in a variety of ways. He finished with 6 receptions for 133 yards and a TD and 12 carries for another 91. - DE Ja'tavion Sanders, Denton Ryan - Sanders is a freak on the field. More times than not he has completely altered games with his play on both sides of the ball. His quickness and explosiveness off the edge is elite, and if he is focused and continues to grow and progress the sky is the limit. On the other hand, he has also made ridiculous catch after catch on the offensive side over the course of his career, and on Friday, offense is where he did most of his damage. He led Ryan with 5 receptions for 77 yards and a TD. It will be interesting to see what the next level has in store, but there is no doubt in my mind he is a special talent. -QB Quinn Ewers, Southlake Carroll (2022) - It was not his cleanest night of the year, but he put it all out there and competed. He looked sharp early, but Westlake's defense was able to keep him and the Carroll offense off balance much of the night. There is no question he can make all the throws, and he is one of the top QBs in the country regardless of class. -QB Kaidon Salter, Cedar Hill - Salter has made a career on making big throws in big moments, but Saturday it was not to be. It was a tough day for Salter. He made some questionable decisions and there were a few balls I know he wished he had back. Katy's defense applied the pressure, and Salter and the Cedar Hill offense was unable to find his rhythm. It will be interesting to watch Salter at Tennessee. He is smart, he is a leader, and he has a quick release and a strong arm. He is now on his way to Knoxville to enroll early. -S Bryan Allen, Aledo (2022) - It was a quiet day for Allen. He is a ballhawk on the back end of the Aledo defense and Crosby was mindful of his presence. He finished the day with 2 tackles (1 solo, 1 assist). -ATH Billy Bowman Jr, Denton Ryan - He is headed to Oklahoma as a receiver and he did most of his damage on offense Friday night. He has been a dynamic playmaker on offense, defense, and special teams throughout his career and I have no doubt Lincoln Riley will get creative in the ways he involves Bowman. He finished with 4 receptions for 62 yards, and a 6-yard carry in Friday's 59-14 Ryan win. Some top Performances that stood out in my mind Many were already mentioned. JoJo Earle, Cade Klubnik, Anthony Hill, and Bear Alexander all had big performances. Here are a few more. RB DeMarco Roberts, Aledo - All he did was rush for 254 yards and 6 TDs on 31 carries. That's it. That is all he did. And he made it look easy on his way to offensive MVP honors. He is headed to Lamar. S Ty Marsh, Denton Ryan - Marsh's strip of Josh Cameron late in the second quarter was a game changing moment. Cedar Park was threatening to make it a game, Montgomery comes down with a huge reception, and Marsh strips it away and steals any and all momentum Cedar Park had going into haftime. He finished with 6 tackles (5 solos, 1 assist), a TFL, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, 3 PBUs, and an INT. He was named defensive MVP for his efforts DE Cal Varner, Katy - Varner was a man on a mission Saturday afternoon. The future Rice Owl recorded 3 tackles and 2 TFLs and was a constant presence. His big highlight though was the pick six to put Katy's final points on the board. The catch and 15-yard TD return shut down any and all hopes of a Cedar Hill comeback. He deserved to take home defensive MVP honors and he did. S Dalton Jackson, Katy - He led the swarming Tiger defense with 4 tackles (3 solos, 1 assists), a forced fumble, and 2 PBUs. The future Arizona Wildcat seemed like he was in on just about every tackle though. ATH Reggie Branch, Crosby - Mr. do-it-all, did all he could on Friday. Aledo proved to be too much, but Branch has no reason to hang his head. He finished with 11 carries for 72 yards and a TD, and he recorded 4 receptions for a team leading 79 yards. CB Michael Taaffe, Austin Westlake - I will be honest I was pretty ignorant of Taaffe's abilities before Saturday, and my goodness were my eyes ever opened. He got it done on both sides of the ball and his one-handed pick of Ewers was a real head turner. Great eval by the Rice Owls, they got a good one. WR Brady Boyd, Southlake Carroll - Boyd was my MVP for the Dragons. He came out of the gate hot and he never let up. He finished with 12 receptions for 190 yards and 2 TDs. There is no doubt in my mind he could see the field early at Minnesota. Prospects to know CB Jaden Allen, Aledo (2024) - Aledo needed an early defensive stop and it was Allen who came through with the PBU to force it. He also had a PBU deep over the middle. He has speed, feet, and hips and he is not afraid. RB Owen Allen, Southlake Carroll (2023) - Allen has been on the scene since starting as a freshman for the Dragons, and that will continue as his career progresses. He is slippery fast, with great vision and quickness and he is a weapon in the passing game. RB Seth Davis, Katy (2023) - Saturday was my first chance to see Davis in person, and he was nothing short of impressive. In fact, he took home offensive MVP honors for leading the Tiger offense with 14 carries for 123 yards and a TD. WR Jaden Greathouse, Austin Westlake (2023) - big bodied, great hands, and he led Westlake with 5 receptions for 103 yards and a TD. RB Kalib Hill, Denton Ryan (2023) - A tough, downhill runner, he finished with 15 carries for 98 yards. At 6-foot and 200-pounds he is already a load for opposing defenses. TE Jason Llewellyn, Aledo (2022) - His size, athleticism, and ability to block and catch are going to catch plenty of attention. He finished with 2 receptions for 24 yards but he showed he could be a versatile weapon. TE RJ Maryland, Southlake Carroll (2022) - Long and lean he made several highlight reel receptions. His ability to adjust to the ball definitely caught the eye. He checks in at 6-4, 205 and he lined up at receiver for Carroll. OL Connor Robertson, Austin Westlake (2022) - What is not to like about a big, physical mauler on the offensive line. He finishes strong, he picks up blocks downfield, and he has a lot of good tape. Look for his stock to continue to rise.

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

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.”
