Thursday Recruiting Notes
It has been a busy few days and here are a few notesLet's start with some recruiting.I stopped by Allen earlier this week and the Eagles once again are loaded with talent with standout OL Neto Umeozulu leading the way. He is a top target for Texas A&M and he is developing strong bonds with coach Henson and commitments like Hunter Erb, PJ Williams, and Donovan Green. The Aggies have done a good job recruiting and seem to be in a good spot at this time. He is currently keeping an open mind to his options and he did not name any leaders, but when it comes time to narrow his focus, I like the Aggies' chances. I think the SEC, coach Henson's track record developing OLs, and the trajectory of Texas A&M's program will help the Aggies out and it will be worth watching to see how the relationships with players and commits develop. Here's a link to the interview we posted earlier today.https://texags.com/s/38909/recruit-qa-2022-allen-ol-neto-umeozulu-focused-on-finding-right-fit/25Last week I posted about Texas coming on strong for Pilot Point ATH Ish Harris but it should also be pointed out Texas A&M remains high on his list. In talking to a few different sources, it sounds like A&M, Texas, and Oklahoma are all pretty involved right now. I still like Texas A&M's chances to win this battle though if I'm making a prediction. Coach Price has done a great job laying the ground work, and I also look for the SEC, Texas A&M's defense, and Texas A&M's reputation in Agriculture to play a factor. I spoke to a source last night on Duncanville 2022 DE Omari Abor, and while I would not call Texas A&M the leader I do consider them a legitimate player in his process. I was told Oklahoma, Ohio State, and Texas A&M were three schools to watch closely. I still believe Oklahoma is the team to beat, but it sounds like Texas A&M is trending in a positive direction. I was also told Duncanville 2022 OL Jaylen Early continues to speak highly of the Aggies. Fayetteville (AR) WR Isaiah Sategna just tweeted about announcing some favorites. As we have said for weeks now, the Aggies have positioned themselves well there. I also saw Garland S Chace Biddle's tweet got some people chatting last night. After chatting with some sources, I feel pretty certain he was not talking about his commitment just yet.Now for some 2023sTexas A&M hosted recent 2023 offer Daniel Demery for a virtual tour and Zoom call. The Dallas Parish Episcopal S said it went very well. Coach Price is leading A&M's efforts and Demery said his biggest takeaway from the call was how A&M takes pride in every aspect of every player from their overall well-being to their academics and athletics. It is early in the process but the Aggies have positioned themselves well. Academics will play a big role for him.A new prospect to add to your radar is Ardmore (OK) Plainview WR Morgan Pearson. He currently checks in at 6-2, 220 and he runs in the 4.5s and he has great ball skills and hand-eye coordination. He is also a standout baseball player. He holds football offers from Oklahoma State, Iowa State, and Illinois State. Now, what is intriguing about him is he is originally from Texas, his dad graduated from A&M, and his grandfather was the first African-American Mayor of Hearne. His grandmother still lives in Hearne, and the family is well known and thought of in the community. So, he has a lot of ties to the state of Texas and Texas A&M. If you are looking for some early 2024s to watch, I have a couple of young DLs I could see emerging on Texas A&M's radar. One is Allen DE Zina Umeozulu. He is Neto's younger brother and he currently checks in at 6-4, 200. His length and frame definitely catch the eye. As soon as I walked up I asked who he was and when I learned he was a freshman I started writing. It should be fun to watch him continue to grow and develop. Another is Denison DE Xadavien Sims. At 6-4, 230, Sims already has varsity film. He has little bad weight on his frame and plenty of room for growth over the next few years. He is explosive and he is quick off the ball. This is a guy I could easily see becoming a national prospect. I have a few more notes some of you guys may find interestingYou will not find a much more solid, well-coached, and strong group of guys than that Allen OL. Including Neto, there are four Allen OLs who could easily end up at the FCS/FBS level with OG/C Jackson Newville (6-2, 295), OT Austin Lopez (6-3, 265), and OC Nick Blessing (6-2, 255) all attracting attention. Newville is the one I am most familiar with out of those three since I have seen him at several camps. His height is going to keep him inside, but he is mean and nasty. He is the very definition of a mauler in the middle. He describes his style of play as ambitious because he will not stop. He holds offers from the Ivy Leagues (Columbia, Dartmouth, Yale) and all three service academies. Austin Lopez has the most upside of that next group. He is light right now, but he is an athlete on the o-line with room to grow. He is the guy who finishes sprints first and quickest changing directions. He is the guy chasing the school record in the discus, right now he is throwing in the 160s but he has an eye at hitting 180 before the end of track season. He has yet to receive an offer but Wyoming, Brown, Dartmouth, and Abilene Christian. Then there is Nick Blessing who is an athletic center in the middle of the Allen OL. He makes it look easy firing off the ball and getting down field to pick up blocks, and he has some solid size to go with it. Those guys open holes for 2022 speedster Jaylen Jenkins who is shifty, quick, fast, versatile, and a number of other crazy adjectives. He is already attracting plenty of college attention with UTSA, Tulsa, and Utah State on the board with offers. We have already talked 2024 QBs quite a bit here and I need to put another one on the list. Allen QB Michael Hawkins is another one to watch. He is a 6-1, 175-pound standout with a big arm, a strong football IQ, and coaches also praised his athleticism. His father Michael Hawkins Sr. played went to Carrollton Turner and Oklahoma before playing in the NFL.

High School notes and thoughts from my weekend
Games I saw so we can set the stage. Denton Ryan 17 Highland Park 7Southlake Carroll 59 Euless Trinity 35Cedar Hill 27 Rockwall-Heath 24Duncanville 56 DeSoto 28 Texas A&M targets Let's start with Texas A&M signee Shemar Turner. He is a bad, bad dude in the trenches. He plays with an edge. He is explosive and violent. He is a high intensity, high effort guy, and when you combine that with his physical gifts it's a rare combination. Saturday night he was locked in and he made some strong plays. It was not always flashy as he held the edge or took on blockers, but he had several splash plays in there too. Unfortunately, DeSoto ran into a superior team in Duncanville. It is what it is, nothing to be ashamed of. Turner ended his career leaving all on the field. On the other side of the field, Duncanville 2022 DE Omari Abor handled his business. He flashed quickness off the edge and worked out of a two-point as well as a three at different times in the game. Regardless of how he charged forward, he brought it. He was a constant threat to the DeSoto backfield. He is regarded as one of the top DEs in the state and I can definitely see why. He was active, he is versatile. He has wide shoulders and a skinny waist to go with some long arms, and he has very little bad weight on his frame. Staying on the defensive side of the ball, Denton Ryan 2022 DT Bear Alexander is the guy I was most excited to see this weekend. He did not disappoint either. He is in much better shape than when I saw him this summer, and he is a big problem for Ryan opponents. He is capable of eating space and blockers in the middle, and just as capable of splitting those blocks and making the play. We have him underrated, but I look for him to push his way back up the rankings soon. I saw other Texas A&M targets I saw over the weekend but these three definitely stuck out in my mind. Other names Texas A&M fans need to know are Duncanville 2022 OLs Jaylen Early and Cameron Williams, Denton Ryan 2023 LB Anthony Hill who played both RB and LB, DeSoto 2023 WR Johntay Cook, and Denton Ryan 2022 CB Austin Jordan. All hold Texas A&M offers and all are considered to be among the best in their class. Quick Takes Denton Ryan's defense is the fastest, most physical defense on the high school scene right now. Ja'tavion Sanders gets a lot of the pub and he deserves it, but it is a total team effort. These guys fly around the field and they are looking to knock your head off. Since Bear Alexander's arrival, he has added another dimension to the middle of the defense. More on that later, but for my money give me that swarming Ryan Raider defense. Quinn Ewers put on a show Saturday. It was a quick and efficient effort. He had the lefty throw and dropped some dimes to Brady Boyd, which made plenty of highlight reels, but to me, it was the effortlessness he operated the Carroll offense. He finished the day completing 35 of 39 passes for 450 yards, 6 TDs and 1 INT. It was a strong performance from beginning to end. It feels weird to say it when he had 23 carries for 204 yards and 2 TDs, but the Dragon defense did a good job of keeping Euless Trinity RB Ollie Gordon contained for much of the day. Gordon showed he is going to get his, and his abilities kept the Trojans within striking distance, but the Southlake defense keyed on him and clogged his running lanes as well as anyone I saw this fall. Ja'Tavion Sanders is just a different kind of ball player. His one-handed TD to kick things off for Ryan was a thing of beauty. He could make plays on either side of the ball on college level. The ceiling is higher in my mind for him to be an explosive edge threat in the Big 12, but he would also be a mismatch and special athlete at tight end. Regardless, I look forward to seeing his future, he has an opportunity to be . Every time I see Kaidon Salter I see a gutsy performance. When the game is on the line and he is under center there is always a chance for Cedar Hill. He has a great feel for the pocket, he keeps his eyes downfield, and he can sling that ball a mile with the flick of his wrist. I cannot wait to see the rematch between Guyer and Cedar Hill just so I can see the two of the gutsiest, never-say-die QBs the state has to offer in Salter and Texas A&M commit Eli Stowers. Speaking of gutsiest, never-say-die QBs, I would put Salter and Stowers right up there with Dematrius Davis of North Shore. I don't know how I would rank them in that specific category, but I can tell you if you have one of them leading your team, needing a score to win, you cannot go wrong. Duncanville's Roderick Daniels is one bad dude. He is a fierce competitor with plenty of speed and quickness and he has been a playmaker since his sophomore year at Duncanville. He had 8 receptions for 267 yards and a TD for a 33-yard average receiving on Saturday night. Above all those receptions, his biggest play of the game was his punt return where he got popped, the ball shot across the field, he regained his bearings, turned on the speed, chased down the ball, and then turned the corner on a very fast DeSoto squad. That is truly different. He is going to be fun to watch at SMU and I predict he finds the field very early as a freshman.

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.”
