I stopped through DeSoto yesterday - notes
I had a chance to get down to DeSoto yesterday and as usual the talent is about as top notch as it gets in the state. 2021s Shemar Turner and Byron Murphy II lead the way, which is saying something with P5 commits Jaedon Wilson (Arkansas), Jerand Bradley (Texas Tech), and Samari Collier (Illinois) leading the way. Let's talk A&M targets. We already posted the interview from key Texas A&M target Shemar Turner. He had a Zoom meeting with coach Price last night and it sounds like things went well. He is down to his top five and right now I don't think I would give anyone a lead. He wants to take his visits and decide after he gets that chance. Georgia, LSU, Alabama, and Texas join the Aggies in his top 5.https://texags.com/s/36401/2021-dl-shemar-turner-outlines-next-steps-in-his-recruiting-process2023 WR johntay Cook has also been offered by the Aggies. He is in no hurry with the recruiting process, but receiving the Texas A&M offer meant a lot to him. He is drawing a lot of comparisons to Dontre Wilson around the DeSoto program and he is a smooth, explosive prospect. We will have an interview with him posted soon.https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1276235472772239360?s=20If I have a sleeper to watch in the 2021s it is OL Yakiri Walker. At 6-3, 270 he passes the eyeball test and he led all linemen OL and DL in the first morning session sprints. The first morning session did not include Turner or Murphy. Walker is currently committed to UConn but he has the frame and athleticism to make him a high potential prospect. UConn has a steal right now.Jerand Bradley is a guy I left feeling we have underrated. He has been turning some heads since he arrived at DeSoto. Bradley has great size (6-5, 200), massive hands, and runs crisp routes. There is no question he is going to be a top target for QB Samari Collier, and I think he is currently DeSoto's top receiver. There has not been much talk about him and A&M, but he has SEC ability and is a guy I could see eventually emerging on the radar.https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1276233018760364036?s=20A prospect already on the Aggie's radar is 2023 S/LB Jaden Milliner-Jones. He has been to College Station before and he already holds offers from Illinois State and SMU. He transferred to DeSoto from Mesquite Horn where he was an all-district player as a freshman. He currently checks in at 5-11, 175, but he has a great build that I could eventually see evolving into a linebacker. That said, he moved very well and he was right there at the top of the list when it came to prospects at DeSoto. https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1276202096078045184?s=20Here's a few other young prospects I am taking note of right now. It is early but these guys are generating a lot of buzz in DeSoto.2024 DE Caleb Mitchell - 6-2, 220 - I saw him at a camp earlier this spring and he brings some serious speed off the edge. There is a lot of talk of him making an instant impact on the varsity level this fall.2024 ATH Mario Buford - 6-0, 160 - The offense and defense are currently fighting over him, but wherever he ends up the future is bright. He has speed, size, and is already turning heads with his athleticism. https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1276190652343214080?s=20A few others I was impressed with2022 S Devyn Bobby2023 CB Caimon Mathis 2023 S Jamarion Ravenell 2024 QB DJ Bailey 2024 RB Jaden Trawick was not out there yesterday, but there is already a lot of talk about the 5-11, 190-pound back.

DFW Notes on a Tuesday
Texas A&M has been very active recently in the DFW-area. Several new offers have gone out and today the Aggies were extremely active with offers going out to receivers in the 2021 and 2023 class.The 2021 DFW guys I think the Aggies have the best shot to land1. CB Deuce Harmon, Denton Guyer - The Aggies have been at the top of his list since February but Texas and Oregon continue to make a push. He is narrowing in on a decision.2. ATH Dametrious Crownover, Grandview - The Aggies have been high on his list and his brother Earnest already committed only helps matters.3. DE Shemar Turner, DeSoto - A trimmed top schools list is expected before the end of May, and the Aggies have positioned themselves well in this one. He is not expected to make a college decision in the near future but I wouldn't be surprised if something happens preseason.4. LB Kendrick Blackshire, Duncanville - I have long thought Blackshire would take his talents to the SEC, and Alabama, LSU, and A&M are schools I would say lead the way right now.Just because I didn't put WR Ketron Jackson (Royse City), CB Ishmael Ibraheem (Dallas Kimball), and OL Savion Byrd (Duncanville) in the list don't assume that means things are done. I just like the way things are trending with the others bit better. If you're looking for a super sleeper, Aledo WR JoJo Earle is one to watch. Flipping him from LSU is going to take a lot of things happening, but before he decided the Aggies were closing the gap and among his top schools. If the Aggies can produce on the field and get him to visit College Station, I would say there's a legitimate shot.A few 2022 DFW guys I like the Aggies' chances with early. They are listed in alphabetical order-DT Keithian Alexander, Dallas Skyline - Elijah Robinson is leading the Aggies efforts and the Aggies were one of the first to offer.-OL Cole Hutson, Frisco - he hit it off with coach Henson and the Aggies are in on this one early. Look for his stock to take off.-RB Emeka Megwa, Fort Worth Nolan Catholic - Big back who has been on A&M's radar for years. -WR Armani Winfield, Lewisville - Dameyune Craig has made a strong connection with Winfield and his family.New offersMcKinney North 2021 WR JJ Henry has received several offers over the last few months, and he's a guy I brought up as a guy to watch in early March. At 5-foot-10, he is a slot known for his speed and quickness. North has a wide open offense and he absolutely lit it up this fall. He recorded 71 receptions for 1,419 yards and 16 TDs on his way to district co-Offensive MVP honors. He is keeping an open mind to the process, but in talking to some sources Florida State and Arkansas are a couple of schools to watch. His relationship is in the early stages with coach Craig, but he was excited to receive the offer. "I will always have a good reaction when it comes to receiving an offer, but this one was good too!" Henry said via Twitter. "Just to know that I have another option close to home."https://www.hudl.com/video/3/6878628/5de41bc03df4a60cf8e555e4DeSoto 2023 WR johntay Cook picked up an offer from the Aggies today as well. The 6-foot, 170-pound standout has received offers from Nebraska, Illinois, Arkansas, Oklahoma State, and Tulsa since the start of 2020. https://twitter.com/johntay04/status/1262841214115684352?s=20"I was extremely excited when I heard the news," Cook said. "The hard work is starting to pay off, but I still have a lot to prove!" "The first thing that comes to mind when hearing Texas A&M is the tradition, how good the program is, and also they have a great coach in Coach Jimbo Fisher."It does not take long talking to people in DeSoto to find out this guy has some real juice. He is a playmaker with the ball in his hands. Dontre Wilson is a good comparison. He is explosive, quick, and he has some top end speed. He also could play defense, but it is really hard to take the ball out of his hands.https://www.hudl.com/video/3/13212276/5dc5e8cad21b9e0ebc56d66eI hear at least one more DFW standout could receive an offer today or in the very near future, so keep an eye out.Other Recent DFW offersATH Caleb Johnson, Greenville (2021) - things are still very early in his recruiting process (https://texags.com/forums/25/topics/3110245)WR Phaizon Wilson, Lancaster (2022) https://texags.com/forums/25/topics/3112135/replies/56555656WR Evan Stewart, Frisco Liberty (2022)https://texags.com/forums/25/topics/3112895OL Cole Hutson, Frisco (2022)https://texags.com/s/36189/2022-frisco-ol-cole-hutson-eager-for-a-chance-to-visit-aggielandPotential offersIf you're looking for who could be the next to receive an offer from the Aggies there are a few intriguing possibilities, and I am hearing a few more could have some offers soon.Frisco Independence S Caleb Ellis is a guy Liucci has mentioned a few times and he appears to be firmly on A&M's radar. On the offensive line we have touched on Highland Park OT Jack Leyrer, but there are a few guys I like on the interior. In talking to some DFW sources Denton Guyer OL Gabe Blair and Garland Lakeview Centennial OL Ezra Oyetade are a couple of guys who could be sleeper candidates on the interior. Blair has been a starting tackle for Guyer since his sophomore year and while he is not a prototypical tackle at 6-3, 300, he is mean, nasty, strong, and smart. Oyetade is another who projects as a center/guard type prospect, and he shares many of the same traits as Blair. Both of these guys are vicious in the trenches.https://www.hudl.com/video/3/9563353/5e30e87c578eaf1288045c7dhttps://www.hudl.com/video/3/11064633/5d7aaa92a676b3181036c3d9In the 2022 class Plano (TX) John Paul II CB/DB Terrance Brooks is a guy to watch. He has received offers from FIU, Texas, and LSU in the last two days, and his father is Texas A&M Hall of Famer and NFL safety Chet Brooks. The Garland duo of WR Jordan Hudson and S Chace Biddle are two more to keep an eye on and we have mentioned them before. At 6-1, 190 Biddle is a physical player with range and speed on the back end, while Hudson is a physical 6-foot, 180 who has strong hands, attacks the ball, and has some speed to go with it. https://www.hudl.com/video/3/11336637/5df2e41c6899960b04002d36https://www.hudl.com/video/3/11568704/5de1ddcff55fe20c60d8876dhttps://www.hudl.com/video/3/11568745/5e73cd86dfd9da1a9cb4f498
