Thursday Recruiting Notes
It has been a busy few days and here are a few notesLet's start with some recruiting.I stopped by Allen earlier this week and the Eagles once again are loaded with talent with standout OL Neto Umeozulu leading the way. He is a top target for Texas A&M and he is developing strong bonds with coach Henson and commitments like Hunter Erb, PJ Williams, and Donovan Green. The Aggies have done a good job recruiting and seem to be in a good spot at this time. He is currently keeping an open mind to his options and he did not name any leaders, but when it comes time to narrow his focus, I like the Aggies' chances. I think the SEC, coach Henson's track record developing OLs, and the trajectory of Texas A&M's program will help the Aggies out and it will be worth watching to see how the relationships with players and commits develop. Here's a link to the interview we posted earlier today.https://texags.com/s/38909/recruit-qa-2022-allen-ol-neto-umeozulu-focused-on-finding-right-fit/25Last week I posted about Texas coming on strong for Pilot Point ATH Ish Harris but it should also be pointed out Texas A&M remains high on his list. In talking to a few different sources, it sounds like A&M, Texas, and Oklahoma are all pretty involved right now. I still like Texas A&M's chances to win this battle though if I'm making a prediction. Coach Price has done a great job laying the ground work, and I also look for the SEC, Texas A&M's defense, and Texas A&M's reputation in Agriculture to play a factor. I spoke to a source last night on Duncanville 2022 DE Omari Abor, and while I would not call Texas A&M the leader I do consider them a legitimate player in his process. I was told Oklahoma, Ohio State, and Texas A&M were three schools to watch closely. I still believe Oklahoma is the team to beat, but it sounds like Texas A&M is trending in a positive direction. I was also told Duncanville 2022 OL Jaylen Early continues to speak highly of the Aggies. Fayetteville (AR) WR Isaiah Sategna just tweeted about announcing some favorites. As we have said for weeks now, the Aggies have positioned themselves well there. I also saw Garland S Chace Biddle's tweet got some people chatting last night. After chatting with some sources, I feel pretty certain he was not talking about his commitment just yet.Now for some 2023sTexas A&M hosted recent 2023 offer Daniel Demery for a virtual tour and Zoom call. The Dallas Parish Episcopal S said it went very well. Coach Price is leading A&M's efforts and Demery said his biggest takeaway from the call was how A&M takes pride in every aspect of every player from their overall well-being to their academics and athletics. It is early in the process but the Aggies have positioned themselves well. Academics will play a big role for him.A new prospect to add to your radar is Ardmore (OK) Plainview WR Morgan Pearson. He currently checks in at 6-2, 220 and he runs in the 4.5s and he has great ball skills and hand-eye coordination. He is also a standout baseball player. He holds football offers from Oklahoma State, Iowa State, and Illinois State. Now, what is intriguing about him is he is originally from Texas, his dad graduated from A&M, and his grandfather was the first African-American Mayor of Hearne. His grandmother still lives in Hearne, and the family is well known and thought of in the community. So, he has a lot of ties to the state of Texas and Texas A&M. If you are looking for some early 2024s to watch, I have a couple of young DLs I could see emerging on Texas A&M's radar. One is Allen DE Zina Umeozulu. He is Neto's younger brother and he currently checks in at 6-4, 200. His length and frame definitely catch the eye. As soon as I walked up I asked who he was and when I learned he was a freshman I started writing. It should be fun to watch him continue to grow and develop. Another is Denison DE Xadavien Sims. At 6-4, 230, Sims already has varsity film. He has little bad weight on his frame and plenty of room for growth over the next few years. He is explosive and he is quick off the ball. This is a guy I could easily see becoming a national prospect. I have a few more notes some of you guys may find interestingYou will not find a much more solid, well-coached, and strong group of guys than that Allen OL. Including Neto, there are four Allen OLs who could easily end up at the FCS/FBS level with OG/C Jackson Newville (6-2, 295), OT Austin Lopez (6-3, 265), and OC Nick Blessing (6-2, 255) all attracting attention. Newville is the one I am most familiar with out of those three since I have seen him at several camps. His height is going to keep him inside, but he is mean and nasty. He is the very definition of a mauler in the middle. He describes his style of play as ambitious because he will not stop. He holds offers from the Ivy Leagues (Columbia, Dartmouth, Yale) and all three service academies. Austin Lopez has the most upside of that next group. He is light right now, but he is an athlete on the o-line with room to grow. He is the guy who finishes sprints first and quickest changing directions. He is the guy chasing the school record in the discus, right now he is throwing in the 160s but he has an eye at hitting 180 before the end of track season. He has yet to receive an offer but Wyoming, Brown, Dartmouth, and Abilene Christian. Then there is Nick Blessing who is an athletic center in the middle of the Allen OL. He makes it look easy firing off the ball and getting down field to pick up blocks, and he has some solid size to go with it. Those guys open holes for 2022 speedster Jaylen Jenkins who is shifty, quick, fast, versatile, and a number of other crazy adjectives. He is already attracting plenty of college attention with UTSA, Tulsa, and Utah State on the board with offers. We have already talked 2024 QBs quite a bit here and I need to put another one on the list. Allen QB Michael Hawkins is another one to watch. He is a 6-1, 175-pound standout with a big arm, a strong football IQ, and coaches also praised his athleticism. His father Michael Hawkins Sr. played went to Carrollton Turner and Oklahoma before playing in the NFL.

A few notes from today's RB/LB camp in Dallas
I had another chance to see DeSoto 2023 Jaden Milliner-Jones today and I have no doubt in my mind this guy who will be a national recruit. He already has offers from Illinois State and SMU, and Texas A&M has shown some interest. He worked at LB today and could easily grow into a LB over the next few years. Right now I project him as a S at 5-11, 175. Regardless of where he projects, he is fast, physical, and full of potential. Today he was the best overall performer from either session. He was all over the field and he took on the best of the best. He is a high-major prospect who I believe will have offers from across the country in due time.https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1277014820752105473?s=20https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1277010889972088834?s=20The new face that impressed me the most today was Fort Worth South Hills 2021 LB Ca'lub Holloway. I had not seen him in person and he caught my attention from the second he walked into camp. He is a solid 6-1, 215 and he is a twitchy athlete. He is also very aggressive which could be seen as both a plus or a minus. That aggression made him off balance or out of position at times, but it was also nice to see the mentality. Also he had the length and speed to make up for being out of position in most cases today. He is a developmental type guy but this is the type of prospect who is capable of really blowing up. Right now he has offers from Illinois State, New Mexico, and Lamar. https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1277009852234162178?s=20Arlington Martin 2022 LBs Trevell Johnson and Tyrell Johnson - yes, they are twins - are already on A&M's radar. Travell is a little bigger at 6-foot, 195, and already holds offers from Arkansas, Baylor, Ole Miss, SMU, Boston College, and Buffalo. Tyrell is right around 5-11 and 185. Both have some growing to do and they are known for their ability to find the ball. They both showed some nice lateral quickness and change of direction on the day.https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1277046190941581313?s=20Another guy already on Texas A&M's radar is Fort Worth Nolan Catholic 2022 LB/Edge Vincent Paige. He is currently a bit of a tweener at 6-2, 220, but he is at his best when he comes screaming off the edge. He has been a standout performer at DE at a few camps, but his size also has colleges wanting to see how he does at ILB. His lateral quickness and change of direction are both things he has been working hard to improve. Today pushed him and I look forward to seeing how he continues to develop. He already holds offers from Baylor, Cincinnati, UConn, and Syracuse.Then there is 2023 Lancaster LB Noah Boulieu. He is already 6-2, 210 and he has the build you look for in a future linebacker. I liked what I saw as far as his lateral movement and he was able to get deep downfield in coverage. It is very early, but this is a guy I could see emerging on A&M's radar at some point down the line. https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1277014292437614593?s=20On offense, SMU commit and Dallas Kimball RB Brandon Epton continues to be one of my favorites. The guy is versatile, has excellent size, and I think he has high P5 potential. SMU has an absolute steal. Longview 2021 RB and UTSA commit Kaden Meredith is another favorite of mine. He struggled catching the ball with consistency today, but he did have a great deep over the shoulder grab. The Colony 2023 APB Kamden Wesley showed up a little late but he immediately caught my attention. He is not the tallest, but he has a stout build at 5-6, 170 and he is a multi-purpose guy I could even see lining up in the slot. He brings a lot of speed and explosiveness to the table. He was always open and did a great job of adjusting to the ball. I am not ready to say he needs to be on A&M's radar right now but I could see him developing into one over time.https://twitter.com/Jason_Howell/status/1276964666401579011?s=20Allen's duo of 2021 RB Jaylen Jenkins (2022) and Jordan Johnson (2021) were also impressive on the day.A couple of 2024 running backs turned my head today. In the first session It was Keiran Patrick-Daniels out of Fort Worth Brewer. In the second session it was Aledo 2024 Davhon Keys. Both showed quite a bit of promise and already have some size to work with.
