My Three Things
*Right now, I feel the best about Texas A&M's chances WR Chris Marshall, Missouri City (TX) Fort Bend MarshallWR Kojo Antwi, Suwanee (GA) LambertOL Mark Nabou, Seattle (WA) O'DeaDL Jadon Scarlett, Flower Mound (TX) Coram DeoDT Bear Alexander, Fort Worth (TX) BrewerLB Ish Harris, Pilot Point (TX)CB Deyon Bouie, Bainbridge (GA)S Jarred Kerr, Lexington (TX)QB Eli Holstein, Zachary (LA) - 2023*A few questions answered-Yes, Texas A&M is on commit watch this weekend-Yes, I still like A&M's chances with Bryce Anderson even though he is not on the list above.-Tyler Legacy's Jamarion Miller is the current RB target I think the Aggies have the best chance to sign.-Over/Under commitments for the weekend, I'll go with 2. -OL Kelvin Banks is my most important OV this weekend. Not that the others aren't but Banks is at the top of my priority list this weekend.-DE Ernest Cooper IV is the prospect I think the Aggies have a chance to make the biggest move with this weekend. Coming off his OV to Stanford, the Aggies get their shot.-IMG Academy DE Jihaad Campbell is a visitor I don't think is being talked about enough. He seems to be flying under the radar, but the Aggies are squarely in the mix and have the last visit. His other visits? Just Clemson, Florida, Ohio State, and Georgia.*I love the Texas State 7on7 Championships-Wear lots of sunscreen, bring plenty of water, and be ready to take in some of the state's top talents-Texas A&M commitment Conner Weigman of Bridgeland is the top rated QB on hand this weekend-You will not want to miss QB talents Cade Klubnik (Austin Westlake, Clemson) and Garret Rangel (Frisco Lone Star, Oklahoma State)-Garland's Jordan Hudson is the most dynamic receiver in the field, and he can also be a lock-up defender at CB. Lake Travis WR and Ohio State commit Caleb Burton is also must see.-Austin Westlake is my favorite to win it all. Strong QB and an offense suited for 7on7-Frisco Lone Star is my darkhorse team. See Westlake but a little more under the radar-DeSoto has the best WR corp with Oregon commit Stephon Johnson, 2023s Johntay Cook and Dahlyn Jones, and top 2024 Kam Robinson. If QB clicks into place, and they do have talent there, they are more than capable of a big run. The defense is also pretty stout.-Hebron's Takoda Bridges and Lone Star's Ashton Jeanty are two under recruited prospects with skillsets suited for them to make big waves over the weekend.-Uncommitted Prospect of most interest to Texas A&M fans: Bryce Anderson, Beaumont West Brook-Do yourself a favor and go check out these top underclassmenxQB Jackson Arnold, Denton Guyer (2023)xDB Peyton Bowen, Denton Guyer (2023)xDB Ryan Yaites, Denton Guyer (2023)xQB Bo Edmundson, Lake Travis (2023)xWR Ashton Cozart, Flower Mound Marcus (2023)xRB Elijah Jackson, Archer City (2024)xRB Jaylen Boardley, Texarkana Pleasant Grove (2024)xQB Mabrey Mettauer, The Woodlands (2024)xQB Cole Welliver, Flower Mound Marcus (2024)xCB Mario Buford, DeSoto (2024)xWR Jalen Shelley, Frisco Lone Star (2024)xTE Lance Jackson, Texarkana Pleasant Grove (2025)*Bonus: I listed 2023 QB Eli Holstein in the first list, but he is not the only 2023 I feel like the Aggies are well positioned for at this early point in the process. Here's a few moreOL Harris Sewell, Odessa (TX) PermianDL David Hicks, Allen (TX)DL Will Norman, Camden, NJ/IMG AcademyDL Derrick LeBlanc, Kissimmee (FL) OsceolaDL Jordan Renaud, Lewisville (TX)LB Anthony Hill, Denton (TX) Ryan CB Javien Toviano, Arlington (TX) Martin

Notes from my travels
I have been making the rounds lately. On Sunday I was at the Trench Warfare Pass Rush School, and yesterday I visited Keller Fossil Ridge and Denton Guyer.There were no prospects who currently hold Texas A&M offers, but there are a few guys I could see firmly on the radar down the road so let's start there.Denton Guyer 2023 defensive backs Ryan Yaites and Peyton Bowen both stepped up in 2020 when heralded seniors went out with injuries. Yaites stepped in at cornerback when Deuce Harmon went out with injury, and Bowen had to answer the call when S/LB and Florida State signee Jordan Eubanks went out. Both are now firmly planted on college radars and are on track to be the next big recruits out of Guyer. Bowen checks in at 6-1, 185 and Yaites is longer and leaner at 6-2, 175. Both have potential at S and CB. Bowen holds P5 offers from Baylor, Colorado, Georgia Tech, Michigan State, Notre Dame, and USC, while Yaites has been offered by Colorado, Maryland, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, and USC. If I'm predicting Guyer's next A&M target, I'm leaning towards these two. Guyer also has another QB on the rise. After spending the last two years behind Eli Stowers, Jackson Arnold is a guy to watch. The 2023 signal caller checks in at 6-1, 195 and while he does not have a ton of film his arm talent is very easy to see. He can spin it, and in the last week he has welcomed offers from Michigan State, Tulsa, and North Texas. He is also a standout on Guyer's baseball team. Fossil Ridge also has a couple of guys I will be watching closely too. 2023 RB Landen Chambers and 2023 OL Lajuan Owens. I first saw Chambers at a Skys The Limit Training Session with coach Margin Hooks, and at 6-0, 200 he was a smooth pass catcher. He has a running back build and that is his position, but I could see him being an intriguing big back option down the road. Owens is another guy I have seen at a few different camp stops going back to his freshman year. When he is on his game the 6-4, 315-pounder is as strong as any in the 2023 class. He projects as an interior OL, but he has been a standout at OT for Fossil Ridge.I saw a few sleepers who I could definitely see emerging on P5 radarsThe first guy I have to mention is OL Kaden Sieracki of The Woodlands. The 2022 standout dominated any and all comers at Pass Rush School and he is 6-7, 325 with a 78-inch wingspan. He has zero college offers but I expect that to change. His footwork and hand placement was on point, and he was one of the nastiest competitors at the camp. I look for the offers to start finding him because he is definitely worthy.Keller Fossil Ridge CB Stephen Nnadozie already has a Kansas offer as well as the service academies, but I can easily see the P5s rolling in once college coaches have a chance to watch him in person. At 6-1, 175, he is long and lean and a fluid athlete. He transitions well and has speed to go with it. Denton Guyer DL Rowan Briggs is another I like. The 6-3, 240-pound defender already has offers from Memphis and Marshall. This fall he always caught my attention when I went to see Harmon and Stowers play. He always seemed to be disrupting things alongside Baylor signee Cooper Lanz. He is a high motor, high intensity guy.Another one I like who I would classify as a deep sleeper is Keller Fossil Ridge wide receiver Daniel Cobbs. He checks in at 5-11, 170 and he spent the majority of his time at S due to team needs in 2020. He runs the sprints and relays on the track team and is also a triple jumper. He is the younger brother of former Fossil Ridge standout and current Boise State receiver Stefan Cobbs, and the Fossil Ridge coaches see similar potential in Daniel.Now for some new names. TE Si Stovall, Denton Guyer (2023) - 6-2, 240 and he can do it all from FB, H-back, TE, flex TEDE Willie Goodacre, Denton Guyer (2024) - 6-4, 230 and he immediately catches the eye. Still a long way to go but I will definitely be watching his development closely.ATH Noah Mergerson, Keller Fossil Ridge (2024) - 5-9, 150, but when they talk about speed at Fossil Ridge he may be the fastest in the programDE Xadavien Sims, Denison (2024) - 6-4, 230, played varsity as a freshman and he has the look of a future high major SEC-level targetDT Chad Otutu, Pflugerville Weiss (2024) - 6-1, 240, explosive and athletic in the middle. I didn't see him lose a rep on Sunday.

A few Wednesday afternoon recruiting notes
This morning I was able to get out to Denton Guyer to check in on Texas A&M commits Eli Stowers and Deuce Harmon. Both looked great going through drills and the new coaches were singing their praise. Stowers continues his road to recovery and he is making great progress as he makes his way back to 100-percent. Today, he did all the drill work, and he is even doing weighted squats now. He has also added some great weight. He typically moved from football straight into basketball and then to track, so he was always on the go. The rehab workouts have allowed him to add some nice bulk to his lean frame, and he currently checks in right around the 220-pound mark. https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1275835221758410754?s=20Harmon has also added some weight to his frame. He is now up to 200 pounds and the important thing is he remains as fast, quick, and fluid as ever. He has always been noted for his work ethic and I'm pretty certain he has not missed a training session even while he quarantined this spring. https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1275833089940430848?s=20Guyer is going to be loaded with talent and in the 2021 class the Wildcats also have LB Jordan Eubanks (Florida State) and DE Cooper Lanz (Baylor) headed to Power 5 programs. A guy I have brought up before is OL Gabe Blair. He has been a starter for Guyer at tackle the last few years but due to his size he projects to the interior. Blair is a gritty, strong, stout, smart, powerful ball player in the trenches and if he was just two inches taller he would have everyone in the country on him. As it is he holds a P5 offer from Virginia Tech as well as Group of 5 offers from Tulsa, Tulane, Arkansas State, ULM, UNLV, and North Texas. We have mentioned him before as a potential OC/OG prospect for Texas A&M.CB Darious Goodloe, OL Knox Boyd, and S Jaden Fugett are also drawing plenty of college attention in Guyer's 2021 class.In the 2022 class BJ Phillips and Jace Wilson are a couple to watch. Wilson just picked up an offer from Kansas. He is the younger brother of Kansas basketball player Jalen Wilson who was a top national basketball recruit out of Guyer in 2019. Jace stands in at 6-5, 195, and he is one lean, fluid athlete. I expect him to end up being a big target for Stowers this fall. Phillips is a stout back who brings plenty of power to the field at 5-11, 220. His uncle is NFL CB Adrian Phillips who starred at Garland before heading to Texas and the pros. Another name to tuck away is WR Jason Carter. The 6-4, 185 receiver transferred in last fall and adds some nice size to the Guyer receiving corp.In the 2023 class I give you Jackson Arnold, Si Stovall, and Jacob Fritz. Arnold is the next in line at QB, and is most remembered for having to step into the State Championship game after Stowers went down with his knee injury. He checks in at 6-1, 190 and he can flat out spin it. Today he showed a big arm and also has the accuracy to go with it. Stovall is a TE/H-back who currently checks in at 6-2, 230. He is a versatile weapon capable of lining up in the backfield, on the wing, in-line, or in the slot. He is the son of Guyer OC/OL coach Mitch Stovall. Fritz is a raw 6-4, 270, but he has some tools to work with and it sounds like he is not done growing. He moves well for a big man and he is a guy I will have my eye on as he continues to grow and add strength. ************Philadelphia (PA) Northeast CB Tyreek Chappell tweeted out his top nine as he approaches his July 4 commitment decision.https://twitter.com/chappell_tyreek/status/1275583619994718215?s=20After talking to several sources, the Aggies have put themselves in a great position thanks in large part to the efforts of Elijah Robinson, TJ Rushing, and Mike Elko. In early May he released a top five of Texas A&M, Tennessee, Michigan, West Virginia, and Pittsburgh, and in talking to a few different sources Tennessee and Michigan seem like the main competition. I have also been told he is intrigued with the idea of playing in the SEC. Sticking with the cornerback position, Fort Smith (AR) Northside CB Dreyden Norwood continues to keep in close contact with the A&M coaching staff and I am told by a few sources Texas A&M is one of the top contenders right now with Coach Rushing is leading the Aggies' efforts. In addition to the Aggies, Arkansas and Georgia are also schools generating a buzz in Norwood's recruiting process.

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.”
