Signing Day rapid fire notes
- Tunmise Adeleye tonight and Bryce Foster tomorrow. You guys are reading the crystal tea leaves and that's great and all but I'll stick with what I've maintained over the past week or so. Have to recruit right up until the finish line, but I feel better about the Ags' chances than I do the out-of-state opposition with the announcements getting closer. If the Aggies close those two out, we're talking about the mother of all coups in not only the trenches but also in the Greater Houston area, something that will pay dividends not only in SEC play over the next three or four years but also during the '22 recruiting race in what could be the most loaded city in the country when it comes to high-end SEC caliber football prospects.- Baton Rouge S Jardin Gilbert has been being bombarded by Alabama and LSU over the past 48 hours or so and it's created a situation where he may not sign during the early period after all. I'd still call the Aggies the team to beat here. Problem is, the Tide and Tigers know it so they've been hammering away in hopes of convincing the four-star defender to extend the process. This will be one worth watching over the next day or two but it's starting to feel like a recruitment that runs into the New Year (at least until his currently-scheduled announcement date of January 2)...one that the Aggies will still have a legitimate chance at winning. Frankly, I don't see the need for LSU to sign another safety but it wouldn't surprise me at all if they weren't just trying to throw a wrench into Fisher and A&M's plans at the last moment in hopes that they can either make room or cause the homegrown product to not sign with a division rival. - MJ Daniels was the only noteworthy loss today. He chose to stay in state, which was disappointing for the Ags but not completely out of left field. I know he wasn't a national top-100 kid or anything like that and some on these boards didn't deem him a must have or a 'big get' but he was a longtime target for Jimbo and Elko so one of the only negatives of an otherwise outstanding day.- Philadelphia pass-rusher Elijah Jeudy won't announce until January 2 and is going to choose between A&M and UGA but his plan was to sign today. I felt great about the Ags' chances entering today. If it works out, he'll be another huge addition along the defensive front and has been a guy not enough folks have talked about. An absolute stud in the front seven and if you add Jeudy and Tunmise to close things out, well, that's as good as it gets for a d-line class.- Credit the Ags for signing all of their committed players on the first day of the early signing period with little to no drama at all. There's something to be said for that, especially when you look around and see what happens across the country every year. It also has a lot to do with where the Aggies are at right now in terms of how they're being perceived by recruits around the state and country. Bodes very well for the upcoming cycle, as well, especially if the Ags can close the season in style.- JoJo Earle is heading to Alabama, a secret that LSU's beat folks let out of the bag as soon as he called Ed Orgeron and the Tigers to decommit this afternoon. Hopes were beginning to escalate in College Station when LSU flipped another receiver earlier today (from Mississippi State) and there was 'panic on the Bayou' over the increasing odds that the Tigers lose their third-highest rated commitment to A&M, as the Aggies have been in consistent communication with the Aledo star for over a week. And then? In steps Alabama, the one program that everyone currently fears in the days and hours before their top targets sign...even teams putting together top-10 classes like the Aggies and Bayou Bengals. Bama swooped in late, used last year's thievery of Jace McLellan from OU as a selling point and also leveraged the whole "You'll be the next Jaylen Waddle pitch. It worked. While I wouldn't call this one a stinging loss for the Ags because it only popped up recently, I get the feeling A&M was really damn close to pulling off the late coup and ripping the nation's No. 48-ranked player away from a division rival so there's no two ways around it - this one stings unless you somehow recover and nab a true outside game-breaker like Brian Thomas in February. And by 'land' him, I mean out-recruit the Crimson Tide and return the favor.- If LJ Johnson Jr stays on his current path and signs in February and LSU and Bama convince Gilbert to push his decision back, we could be heading towards an unusually active January on the recruiting front. Those two plus Louisiana WR Brian Thomas, who will choose between Bama, A&M and LSU (LSU is pushing hard but at some point you have to think the fact that the Bayou Bengals and Bama are loading could come into play) will be out there and the Ags also extended an offer on Wednesday to Auburn commit and state of Florida ATH Tar'varish Dawson, who also plans to sign in February. Expect another name or two to pop up like Dawson's as the Aggies, with about six weeks to work, look around the country at prospects who decided to push back their signing date.The L.J. Johnson recruitment will be one that is at least worth keeping an eye on over the next day or so. He's expected to wait it out but I'm sure Jimbo Fisher and the Ags will make one final push before the early signing period is over.

Signing Day eve - what I'm hearing...
Been on the phones tonight checking on things one final time before heading to bed. Here's what I've got...- The race for Baton Rouge (LA) S Jardin Gilbert looks like it's going right down to the wire. A source across the Sabine River told me tonight that Gilbert was on the phone with Alabama and LSU for a while today and thought the Aggies were going to have one more conversation with he and his inner circle tonight. Tough to say exactly where things stand as all three schools have experienced some level of confidence throughout the recruitment, but I do feel like the Tide and Tigers were playing catch up to A&M going into these final 7-10 days. Remember, the plan is that he'll sign tomorrow then announce in early January. - If I had to make a call on Lucedale (MS) DB MJ Daniels tonight, I'd bet on him staying closer to home. This one has swung in 3 directions all fairly recently, but at my last check, my sources were leaning toward the home state Rebels or Bulldogs. - I've heard a small group of A&M commits continue to work on CyFair RB LJ Johnson Jr. Like we've been saying, we are not expecting LJ to sign or make an announcement early, but I cannot definitively say it won't happen. It'll be something we will monitor into the weekend. One thing to remember here, he's got a high profile playoff game on Friday evening against Katy Tompkins which should be a big time showdown. I could see that playing into his decision to not make a decision in the early signing period, as well. - Had it relayed to me that the Aggie staff has continued positive communication with Aledo WR JoJo Earle throughout the last 24 hours - backing up what Jason has heard in the Metroplex. Similar to LJ, we are not expecting any kind of decommitment from LSU or flip/sign with A&M during this early period. However, I think it's safe to say that the Aggies have unquestionably put themselves in a "must be talked about" spot in regards to Earle's future.

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.”
