Wednesday night recruiting notes
The staff continues to search for offensive line options in the 2022 class. With two big commits already in the boat in Hunter Erb and PJ Williams, I would say Kam Dewberry, Kelvin Banks, Neto Umeozulu. and Devon Campbell are top priority guys, and Duncanville's Jaylen Early is in the mix as well. An out of state name I've been hearing more and more is Alpharetta (GA) King's Ridge Christian OL Dayne Shor. The 6-6, 300-pound standout recently put the Aggies in his top 10, and he has talked about taking an official visit to College Station in the past. I've heard some buzz surrounding Alabama and Oklahoma recently with Georgia coming on as well, but some Georgia-area sources have told me the Aggies are also right there in the mix.'re also seeing that next tier of o-linemen continue to grow and a new name I've heard on Texas A&M's radar has been Austin Akins OL Nikolas Hall. I would put Hall in that next group with the likes of Cole Hutson, Johnny Dickson, Timi Gagophien, and Connor Robertson right now. He is a big OT at 6-5, 290 with some very nice junior film, and he has been impressive in a few camp stops this spring. The Aggies extended a new DL offer this week to Owasso (OK) DL Chris McClellan and he has a Zoom meeting planned with the staff for this week. He was excited to receive the offer and he said there is a real possibility he visits in the future. Madison (MS) Madison-Ridgeland LB Stone Blanton announced his top seven tonight with the Aggies making the cut. Coach Santucci has been recruiting him for a couple of years now and the Aggies continue to build a strong relationship there. You can expect baseball to also play a big role in his decision considering he is a top prospect on the baseball diamond and he is currently a Mississippi State baseball commit. In addition to Texas A&M and Mississippi State he listed Ole Miss, Louisville, Oregon, Stanford, and South Carolina as his top choices. He has already started setting up some official visits and I could definitely see him making a trip to Aggieland in the future. Aggies are known to tap into the northeast every now and then and in the 2021 class the Aggies tapped into Philadelphia (PA) Northeast for a couple of defensive targets. Today the Aggies extended an offer to 2023 DE Kion Wright. At 6-2, 220 Wright is a guy to watch off the edge. He is well versed about coach Elijah Robinson and the Texas A&M program and he was excited about the opportunity. He said both Elijah Jeudy and Tyreek Chappell have also educated him about the dawg-like mentality it takes to be a part of the Texas A&M defense.

Monday evening recruiting notes
A few things here in the DFW. A name I continue to hear the Aggies are showing a lot of attention right now is Jadon Scarlett. The Flower Mound Coram Deo DL had a monster season with 62 tackles (42 solos, 20 assists), 6.5 sacks, 20 TFLs, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in six games. He had a call with coach Price last week and the two have formed a strong bond. There has not been much talk of Scarlett, but do not sleep on him as a target.Another DFW guy who has developed a strong bond with the Texas A&M staff is Cole Hutson. We've made note of his strong relationship with coach Henson more than a few times and that has not changed over the course of the season. He is currently taking his time with the process but he does have a few plans. Right now, he plans to hold off on a decision until he can take a few visits, and Texas A&M is a school he plans to visit. He hopes to check out schools close to home which I would assume means the Texas schools and maybe a few closer regionals. Regardless of his timetable, the Aggies have set themselves up nicely.A name we have mentioned here before that I'm hearing more buzz on lately is Haslet (TX) Eaton OL Hunter Erb. The 6-7, 300-pound OL has been a hot name the last few months and I'm told he has the eye of the A&M staff.In the 2023 class there was some serious thought Wylie East DE Anthony James might make a decision as early as February. Well, I have been told not to expect anything quite that soon, but the Aggies do appear to be in a strong position for the 6-5, 230-pound defender with a 4.69 40 time. Now for a quick out of state note, Madison (MS) Madison-Ridgeland Academy 2022 LB Stone Blanton has been keeping in close contact with coach Santucci. The Aggies continue to have his attention and he hopes to visit this spring to visit the campus and see a baseball game. Blanton is currently a Mississippi State baseball commit but he is taking a long, long look at his football options right now. He continues to keep his options open but it is safe to say the Aggies have his attention. Another out of state of note, Kissimmee (FL) Osceola 2023 DE Derrick Leblanc (6-5, 240). He already holds an offer and the Aggies made his top 10. He is planning to visit as soon as he can, and he and his family have been in close communication with the Texas A&M staff. I've been told Terry Price's BBQ has his attention too. I have not heard of any other ties, but there is a real interest and it is worth watching.

A few Out-of-state prospects to watch in 2022
Since Jimbo Fisher's arrival in Aggieland, Texas A&M has reeled in some big out of state targets, and even with a loaded in-state 2022 class, it is a safe bet the Texas A&M class will include some key out-of-state targets. In fact, just yesterday, Suwanee (GA) Lambert WR Kojo Antwi named the Aggies in his top eight along with USC, Alabama, Ohio State, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, and Oregon, so here are a few out-of-state prospects to watch as the focus shifts more towards 2022. QB Ty Simpson, Martin (TN) Westview - QB has been a big question when it comes to Texas A&M's 2022 class and Simpson is a guy who continues to emerge. He camped at Texas A&M in 2019 and coach Fisher's son Trey currently plays for Simpson's dad at Tennessee-Martin. The Aggies made his top 10 but the competition is fierce with Clemson, Ole Miss, and Tennessee also hot on his trail. His top 10 includes Texas A&M, Clemson, Ole Miss, Oklahoma, Texas, Auburn, Florida, Tennessee, Alabama, Tennessee-Martin. OL Jacob Sexton, Edmond (OK) Deer Creek - A legit 6-5, 300, Sexton is considered the top OL in the Sooner State so look for Oklahoma to be heavily involved in his process, but I would not count out the Aggies either. One reason, Josh Henson, he has strong ties in Oklahoma has created quite a few waves across the college football landscape and that has not been lost on recruits. In addition to the Aggies, Sexton holds offers from the in-state Sooners and Cowboys as well as the likes of Alabama, Notre Dame, Stanford, Nebraska, Tennessee, Texas, and Northwestern. DE Shemar Stewart, Opa Locka (FL) Mongsignor Pace - Outside of Texas, Florida has been Texas A&M's most fertile recruiting ground since Jimbo Fisher's arrival. Stewart is a 6-5, 235-pound elite defensive end, one of the top prospects in the country, and he has an interest in the Aggies. Stewart is probably the longest shot on the list but Elijah Robinson and Terry Price have shown they can go head-to-head with anyone in the country for anyone in the country. The Aggies made his top 10 along with Penn State, Miami, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Clemson, Ohio State, Alabama, and Arizona State. LB Stone Blanton, Madison (MS) Madison-Ridgeland Academy - A 6-foot-2, 220-pound, downhill-running, slobber-knocking, sideline-to-sideline linebacker. One of the top prospects in the southeast, and the Aggie's next big target in the state of Mississippi. Coach Santucci has been hot on Blanton's trail since the beginning of the 2022 recruiting cycle and the the two communicate on a regular. Blanton is currently committed to play baseball for Mississippi State, but his football recruiting has taken off since he made that choice. He is openly exploring his football options, and I look for the relationship with Santucci, a stout defense, and the SEC to help Texas A&M's efforts.

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.”
