Notes, Quotes, and Thoughts from my weekend
Top Targets I saw:Argyle DL Jadon Scarlett (2022) - Texas A&M commit Wylie East DE Anthony James (2023) - Texas A&M commit Allen OL Neto Umeozulu (2022) Allen DL David Hicks (2023)Denton Ryan LB Anthony Hill (2023)Longview WR Jalen Hale (2023) The final scores:-Wylie East 19 Mount Pleasant 14-Allen 56 Plano East 30-Denton Ryan 40 Longview 7 -Argyle 45 Nolan Catholic 29Some Recruiting notes -Scarlett and James are solidly committed and active on the recruiting front. Look for both to attend games in College Station this fall. James is planning to visit for Bama.-Allen 2023 DL David Hicks continues to keep in close contact with coach Elijah Robinson, and when I say close contact, I mean they talk daily. He continues to have a high interest in the Aggies.-Allen 2022 OL Neto Umeozulu has been pretty quiet but he cleared up some of the mystery when we talked to him a few weeks ago. I continue to hear a he would like to make a decision soon, but he has wants to take some visits. Whether it's an official or unofficial I expect him to get back to Texas A&M at some point this fall. Others in contention include USC, Alabama, LSU, and Texas.-Denton Ryan 2023 LB Anthony Hill continues to take in the recruiting process. He has a great relationship with the coaching staff with coach Tyler Santucci leading the charge. Everyone is in hot pursuit, but I look for the Aggies to very much be a factor when he starts narrowing his focus.-Longview 2023 WR Jalen Hale, I did not get a chance to catch up with him. Oklahoma has been talked about quite a bit with him, and I look for them to be a factor, but I also think Texas A&M, Texas, LSU, and others will factor into things before it's all said and done.Some thoughts on the game action-Anthony Hill and David Hicks are for real - They are my top two defenders in the 2023 class for a reason and are two of the best regardless of year. The hype is real guys. These guys are violent and relentless. They play with speed, they play with an edge, and they pursue, pursue, pursue. I'm sure they both piled up the stats, but I also don't need stats to tell me they had great games. My eyes saw it. These are two special talents and I highly recommend anyone able bodied football fan to get out to see these guys.

That’s 6-4, 268 on the move@alleneaglesfb pic.twitter.com/JbPQORJdmu— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) August 28, 2021 -Anthony James flashed his potential throughout Wylie East's win over Mount Pleasant. At 6-5, 240 he has some special athleticism and moves in ways a big guy should not be able to do. He saw multiple blockers throughout the night and made his presence felt as the Raiders secured their first win of the season. Overall, I thought he had a solid performance and I look forward to seeing his progress throughout the year.

In only a half of play, his quick first step showed and he was able to get into the backfield and make his presence felt. The injury is not anything serious, Argyle is just being cautious right now which they can do because they have some real talent up frontTexas A&M commit @jadon_scarlett in the backfield for the TFL #GigEm pic.twitter.com/cAY6SZ48Mp— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) August 29, 2021 -Neto Umeozulu continues to be one of my favorites. He plays with a nasty edge as you will see in his game clips. He showed some nifty footwork, picked up blocks downfield, and played with power and strength throughout the night. -Jalen Hale and the Longview offense was pretty much contained by a stout Denton Ryan defense. Hale had a few nice receptions and there is no denying his talent. His size, catch radius, body control, and athleticism are special. More standouts-QB/ATH TJ Washington, Wylie East (2023) - he made a variety of plays and lined up at QB, RB, and WR. Shifty and quick, he finished with 18 carries for 157 yards and a TD.

He is not the biggest but he has a compact build and he is shifty with plenty of speed. He finished with 204 yards and 3 TDs on 9 carries and the KO return gave him 4 total TDs on the night.Jaylen Jenkins (@D1_Jay) made several big plays and here’s one of them.

He rushed for 139 yards and 3 TDs on 9 carries as he helped push the Raiders past LongviewQB Drew Devillier, Plano East (2024) - 19 of 30 for 244 yards and 2 TDs against a stout Allen defense. At 6-4, 195 he was cool under pressure and fit the ball in some tight windows. He committed to TCU baseball over the weekend but keep an eye on this guy.6-4, 195-pound Plano East 2024 QB Drew DeVillier (@DevillierDrew) played some ball tonight.

He was a disruptive presence throughout and was named defensive MVP for his efforts-DE Michael Madrie, Argyle (2023) 6-5, 245 he has length, athleticism, a strong motor, and a work ethic to go with it. He plays a smart brand of ball and is turning heads of college coachesQuotes"It feels great. We've been working hard for all these months and we finally have it. It all paid off, all the work. The grind we had all summer, all the conditioning, lifting, it all came together. We came with change and we ended with a win." - Anthony James, on Wylie East's win"We performed well. We had a record of giving up in the second half and we pulled through." - Anthony James on Wylie East's performance"I'm not going to lie in the first half I was really nervous. I've never played in front of a big crowd like this. Then the second half I really woke up and started doing what I do best and playing some football." - David Hicks on his first game as an Allen Eagle"I've been waiting on this day. I've been waiting to put some film out for these coaches." - Jaylen Jenkins on his performance"I couldn't do it without my blockers. They're the GOAT. They bring it every week. They go through tough work every day. They go through adversity and fight through and never complain." - Jaylen Jenkins on his offensive line"I'm feeling good. It's just a small little ankle sprain and I'll be back in no time." - Jadon Scarlett on his injury"This D-line is an amazing, phenomenal group of guys, and I can't wait to be able to contribute with them" - Jadon Scarlett on the Argyle D-line

I made a few high school stops this week
It was a pretty busy past few days for me with a few stops on the schedule. I dropped in on Wylie East and Lewisville on Monday, and Arlington Martin on Tuesday afternoon. Wylie East 2023 DE Anthony James (@AntJamesII) chasing down the ball@WERaiderFB @CoachJayRose @CoachMarcusGold #GigEm#DUBeast#RecruitRaiderNation#GetOnBoard pic.twitter.com/i0yoVva6Zw— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) May 3, 2021 Monday, I got to see Texas A&M commit 2023 commit and Wylie East DE Anthony James go through drills. He checks in at 6-5, 247 and he continues to test off the charts athletically. They were only in helmets and shoulder pads but he moved well throughout drill work and showed some nice burst and quickness. When it comes to his recruitment, he is scheduled to take a few visits this summer, but especially after his trip to College Station for the Spring game he is very strongly committed to the Aggies and continues to recruit for Texas A&M. I did get to see a few guys who already have Texas A&M offers. Let's start with Arlington Martin DE Ernest Cooper IV. The standout plans to take official visits to all five of his finalists - Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon, Stanford, and Texas A&M - and he was at the Texas A&M spring game. Coach Price has positioned the Aggies nicely in this one. As for practice, his athleticism and size are easy to spot, but it is also really fun watching him lead. He is a seasoned veteran now and is a coach on the field type of guy. While at Martin I also had the chance to watch 2023 CB Javien Toviano. He is a special kind of player and will be used in a variety of ways on offense, defense, and special teams. He is smart, athletic, and he can mix it up with the best of them. He had a great visit to Texas A&M for the spring game and coach Price and coach Rushing have a done a great job of building that relationship. Look for him to visit Aggieland again this summer as well as Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Baylor, Oregon, and maybe Alabama.Arlington Martin 2023 standout Javien Toviano (@Jaaee2saucy_) @Martin_Football @BobWager31 @CoachRPollard pic.twitter.com/G5KjERIlBb— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) May 4, 2021 At Lewisville I had a chance to check in with 2023 DE Jordan Renaud. The 6-5, 245-pound defender should not be slept on as one of the state's top defenders in 2023. He is a national prospect and a guy Texas A&M fans will want to get to know. He was out with a slight injury when I went so I did not get to see him work, but it was good to see him so involved with the d-line even though he was not getting actual reps in practice. Texas A&M was one of the first in-state programs to offer and it is clear Texas A&M and coach Terry Price have made a strong impression. I already wrote the update and if you have not read what he said about Texas A&M I strongly encourage you to read it. Texas and Bo Davis are coming on very strong too and I expect both schools to be a factor throughout his recruiting process, and I would expect him to take his time. LSU, Alabama, and Florida have all recently offered and his offer list is already getting very long. Next offer? I saw a couple of guys I could see the Aggies offering down the road. Let's start at Arlington Martin with 2023 RB Sergio Snider. The 5-10, 185-pound back has been a standout at Nolan Catholic the last two years and is now turning heads at Martin. He runs with a great combination of explosion and balance and I saw quite a bit of power in his running on Tuesday. He played S and RB at Nolan Catholic and he has shown himself to be a versatile threat out of the backfield as well. He already holds offers from the likes of Arizona State, Auburn, Baylor, Nebraska, Oregon, TCU, and Washington and he said he is looking at summer trips to Washington and Oregon. Another guy I would say to keep an eye on is Lewisville 2024 S Jaydan Hardy. At 6-foot, 175, Hardy already has a year's worth of varsity tape under his belt and is quickly establishing himself as one of the top DBs in 2024. Mississippi State and Illinois State have already offer, and he has been in communication with Texas A&M's Terry Price. His dad, Daryl Hardy, was a standout defender at Tennessee and Jaydan has some special tools.There are a few more underclassmen to watch as well. The biggest wildcard I saw this week is Wylie East 2023 ATH TJ Washington. He will likely spend a lot of time at QB but he is also a dynamic athlete who can make plays at RB, WR, or even on defense. Lewisville has several who could emerge over the next few classes. Twin 2023 DBs Cameren Jenkins and Caden Jenkins are on track to turn heads this summer. The Farmers young OL group is also very intriguing. 2023 Scotty Parker (6-1, 310) earned 1st team all-district honors in 2020, and brothers Quaveon Davis and Xavion Davis. Quaveon is a 2023 and checks in at 6-6, 330, while Xavion is 6-3, 400. At Martin 2023 CB Josiah Charles caught my attention. At 6-foot, he has the height and athleticism and he will add the weight. Do not be surprised to see his name start to pop up more on the recruiting front over the next few months.Lewisville 2023 DB Cameren Jenkins (@1Cameren) making it look easy @LHSFball @stujo04 @modle1112 #RecruitLewisville pic.twitter.com/Ha5E07ijyn— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) May 3, 2021 Now for my favorite part, the sleepers, and Lewisville has a great one flying way under the radar. 2022 Tahj Martin checks in at 6-3, 270 and he is a flat bellied, stout, powerful, nasty presence in the trenches. He plays both ways for the Farmers and he plays RT on offense. His only offer is from Texas Southern, but I look for that to change as college coaches get a chance to see his wingspan, athleticism, power, and build. Lewisville 2023 OL Tahj Martin (@Martin2Tahj) doing work in the trenches @LHSFball @modle1112 @stujo04 #RecruitLewisville pic.twitter.com/aZzyEcVp0k— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) May 3, 2021 Lewisville 2022 WR Kye Stone is another to watch. He checks in at 6-2, 180 and he plays the game with a chip on his shoulder. He is physical, fast, and he tracks the ball as well. He has made several plays on the 7-on-7 circuit and has caught my eye at more than a few events so far. Arlington Martin has 2022 WR/TE prospect Myles Hill. He visited Texas A&M with RJ Cooper this spring and he checks in at 6-4, 190 pounds. He is a big bodied guy who I could see turning into a big slot/flex TE type down the road. The guy who really caught my eye at Wylie East was 2022 CB Jason Olford. He is a solid 5-10, 165 and runs the 100 and 200 on the track. He also has some strong bloodlines. His father, Jason Olford, played at La Tech and in the NFL and is now Wylie East's track coach. I didn't mention the prospects committed elsewhere but Lewisville has WR Armani Winfield and Martin has LB Trevell Johnson. Lewisville also has running back Damien Martinez who is committed to Oregon State. I'm not going to lie I think the Beavers got a steal in Martinez. As for the Horns, Winfield did not practice on Monday but has been pretty impressive when I have seen him. It looks like he's rebounded well from a down junior season, and while Johnson is a bit light in the seat he is very active in that Martin defense.

Some Saturday Recruiting Stuff
Friday afternoon Garland 2022 S Chace Biddle announced Texas A&M extended a scholarship offer, and it is an offer that quickly caught his attention."I was very excited like it's a dream come true," Biddle said. "I've always liked Texas A&M and so does my family so it was just great hearing him say I got an offer."The hardworking mentality and the family feel of the program both standout to him, and he also has a favorite Texas A&M memory."The game they went against LSU (in 2018)," Biddle said. "That was a game for the ages."He has yet to really build a bond with the Texas A&M coaching staff, but he is looking forward to it and he currently does not list anyone at the top of his list. Texas, Oklahoma, and Nebraska are the programs he says are coming on the strongest right now.This is a guy I thought would get an offer sooner or later especially with the Aggies recently offering his Garland teammate Jordan Hudson. After talking to him it is pretty clear there is some real interest in Texas A&M and I have heard from different people the Texas A&M offer is one he has been waiting on. I could definitely see the Aggies being a player in this recruiting process.https://www.hudl.com/video/3/11568704/5de1ddcff55fe20c60d8876d***********McKinney North 2021 WR JJ HenryI had the opportunity to watch him work the other day and the speed and quickness are hard to miss. He checks in at 5-10, 165 and he has the Aggies' attention as a slot receiver.Coach Craig is leading the Aggies efforts and he has been showing quite a bit of interest. Henry talks to him on a regular basis and the two have started to build that relationship. "Cool" is the word Henry used to describe coach Craig as the two get to know each other. The SEC is a plus for Texas A&M in this one. Henry likes the idea of competing against the best and he knows the SECs reputation for competition and player development speaks for itself. I do not look for him to make a decision anytime soon. Henry is talking with several schools right now and he would like to take some visits when they are allowed again. He has taken a virtual visit to SMU and he is talking to Texas A&M about take a virtual visit in the near future.If you ask me Henry's timeline seems to fit pretty well with Texas A&M's approach to WR recruiting right now. ***********Offer watchEdmond (OK) Sante Fe 2022 WR Talyn Shettron is generating quite a bit of buzz and I am hearing the Aggies have taken an interest. The 6-3, 170-pound standout picked up an offer from Texas last week and also holds offers from Arkansas, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State. Plano John Paul II CB Braxton Myers is a 2023 to watch and I would also include Dallas Parish Episcopal S Daniel Demery and Dallas South Oak Cliff CB Malik Muhammad on that short list as well. All three are already pulling in high level P5 offers.*******************Getting an early dose of 2023It was not intentional, but the last few weeks I have gotten a nice dose of 2023. I have seen Texas A&M offers Anthony Hill (LB Denton Ryan) and Anthony James (DE Wylie East), and I have seen standout WR AJ Jayroe (Plano Prestonwood), WR Bruce Mitchell (Dallas Parish Episcopal), TE Trey Wilson (Garland Lakeview Centennial), ATH TJ Washington (Wylie East), S Daniel Demery (Dallas Parish Episcopal), WR Jalen Hale (Longview), and DL Kaleb James (Fort Worth Nolan Catholic). Some of these guys already have some big offers, and all of these guys seem primed for big offers in the very near future. When I saw Anthony Hill yesterday it was easy to see he has matured physically this spring and summer. He has slimmed down and grown a bit and looks like he is ready to go for this fall.Seeing Anthony James in person for the first time Thursday was a bit of an eye opener too. His length is the first thing that jumps out and he brings an explosiveness in drill work. He also has a lot of room to grow and fill out as he continues to get stronger.AJ Jayroe is a guy I have already talked about quite a bit. His size and frame make him standout at 6-4, 175, but then you see how fluid an athlete he is and it is truly a unique package. Kaleb James is another who is just on another level physically right now. He has very little body fat on his 6-4, 230-pound frame and he has really been working on his feet and flexibility this spring and summer.Trey Wilson is a standout on the basketball court too at 6-4, 230-pounds and he is primarily a TE for Lakeview Centennial. He has dabbled on the defensive side and it intrigues him a too, but his big soft hands make him a dynamic playmaker on offense. Daniel Demery is as polished as they come in the 2023 class. He is a rangy safety with great instincts and athleticism. Offers are already starting to pour in. I like him at S but he also has some high-end potential at WR too. Watching him go through drills at DB, it is easy to see what he brings to the table at S.Jalen Hale, Bruce Mitchell, and TJ Washington also showed some nice flashes. Hale was a freshman on Longview's varsity and is also a talent on the basketball court. Mitchell turned quite a few heads last year at Parish Episcopal and has some very nice upside. Then there is Washington who could project to a either side of the ball, but I like him in the slot for now. ***************A couple of Bryan High standoutsYesterday at the FBU a couple of Bryan High prospects caught my attention. The first was ATH Duwayne Paulhill. He checks in at 6-0, 205 and he passes the eyeball test. He plays S and RB for Bryan and last year and earned honorable mention all-district honors at S. I could see him developing into a very nice LB prospect. The next one who caught my attention was Nic Caraway. The 6-foot-4, 260-pound standout moves very well and could project to a number of positions. Personally, I like what he does on the defensive line. The highlight reels also show some nice flashes of potential, check them out below.https://www.hudl.com/video/3/11673732/5dc759296655910d0465c95ehttps://www.hudl.com/video/3/13224625/5e9231331761d605889435d9

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.

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.”
