Some quick notes and some new underclassmen
I dropped by Garland Naaman Forest and checked in on Markis Deal, and this one has been trending away from Texas A&M for awhile. He wants to play DL and Texas A&M has been clear they see his future on OL. He named a top four of Arkansas, USC, TCU, and Georgia, but it sounds like Arkansas, USC, and TCU may have the best chances with him. He did not have any official visits scheduled but now that the State Track meet is over I bet he starts scheduling some. Texas A&M offered 2026 QB Kane Archer of Greenwood (AR) yesterday. He checks in at 6-0, 185 and he is already well known by college coaches as one of the top up and coming QBs in the country. In addition to Texas A&M, he also holds offers from Arizona, Arkansas, Michigan, and Missouri.Greenwood (AR) 2026 QB @KaneArcher9 pic.twitter.com/Xf04uLN71C— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) January 29, 2022 ⁦@KaneArcher9⁩ Greenwood Hs(AR) #nxgnmega pic.twitter.com/v0wFwkmwis— QBHitList.com (@QBHitList) January 29, 2022 Now for some new names I could see popping up on Texas A&M's radar down the line.Let's start with Dequane Prevo, a 2026 ATH out Texarkana (TX) Liberty-Eylau. He checks in at 5-11, 165 and is a playmaker on both sides of the ball. He is an explosive athlete with serious speed and quickness. He clocked a 22.6 200m and recorded a 21-6 long jump this spring and projects to CB on defense and WR on offense. He has swagger and confidence to go with his abilities and he is quickly making a name for himself. Halready holds offers from FAU, Houston, SMU, Texas Tech, UTSA, Penn St, Mizzou, and Arkansas St. He vsited Texas A&M in January and the A&M staff is already keeping a close eye on him.Liberty-Eylau 2023 S Tracy Revels vs Dequane Prevo - Round 1@D1Tracy | @prevo_pre | @EarlGill10 | @LibertyEylauAth pic.twitter.com/vDY8TG2L3f— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) April 25, 2022 Liberty-Eylau 2026 ATH Dequane Prevo@prevo_pre | @EarlGill10 | @LibertyEylauAth pic.twitter.com/tlROVSFSoX— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) April 25, 2022 Liberty-Eylau 2026 ATH Dequane Prevo handles the press, and shows the speed and quickness before making the grab@prevo_pre | @EarlGill10 | @LibertyEylauAth pic.twitter.com/Ehi0oT74h2— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) April 25, 2022 https://www.hudl.com/video/3/15055059/6178897d7bd4380918bec7a7Next is Qumonte Williams, a 2025 WR out of Arlington (TX) Lamar. People around the program are buzzing big time about his potential. His mother was pretty well known on the track in her days at Lamar and Qumonte has turned quite a few heads the spring on the field and on the track.Arlington (TX) Lamar 2025 WR Qumonte Williams is already generating big talk around Lamar. At 6-4, 165 he is also turning heads in 400 and as a jumper on the track. #VFND pic.twitter.com/QD3tEDLIci— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) May 6, 2022 North Richland Hills (TX) Richland RB Michael Turner is another 2025 to watch. Turner checks in at 5-10, 190 and brings a unique blend of power, speed, and vision. He played some receiver on the varsity level, but quickly found his home at RB for the Royals. He received his first offer this spring from Colorado, and he has some strong RB bloodlines. His father also named Michael Turner, signed with Wisconsin out of Fort Worth Dunbar.Richland 2025 RB Michael Turner @MichaelTurnerj | @GedKates | @CoachHiles | @Royals_FB pic.twitter.com/fUSms2ZzCf— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) May 4, 2022 https://www.hudl.com/video/3/16328734/61d60cc119b0000220df688eIn the 2024 class, Texarkana (TX) Liberty-Eylau LB Greg London. He checks in at 6-1, 200-pounds and is known as a sideline-to-sideline defender. He recorded over 100 tackles last fall and has offers from Arkansas State, Central Arkansas, and SMU. Interest has also come from Arkansas, Tennessee, Texas A&M, and UTSA.Liberty-Eylau 2024 LB Greg London in coverage @GregoryLondon5 | @EarlGill10 | @LibertyEylauAth pic.twitter.com/M69rkYYdsa— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) April 25, 2022 Liberty-Eylau 2024 LB Greg London@GregoryLondon5 | @EarlGill10 | @LibertyEylauAth pic.twitter.com/0QkClBvcjL— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) April 25, 2022 Liberty-Eylau 2024 LB Greg London@GregoryLondon5 | @EarlGill10 | @LibertyEylauAth pic.twitter.com/RAdWRqQ0d4— Jason Howell (@Jason_Howell) April 25, 2022 https://www.hudl.com/video/3/15518254/613f7a28b53454090cb318b8A couple more to watchLuca Akirtava, 2025 DL, Frisco ReedyFrisco (TX) Reedy 2025 DT Luca Akirtava checks in at a solid 6-3, 250 and he is already turning heads as a disruptive force in the trenches.

Quick OT Recruiting Rundown
Offensive tackle recruiting has been the subject of much discussion so i've done some digging and here's a quick rundownJust a quick note, at this time I have Westlake's TJ Shanahan and Smithson Valley's Colton Thomasson more as interior guys. I look for the Aggies to try and grab a couple of OTs in the 2023 class. Now, let's jump into it, and start with some national names.OT Chase Bisontis (6-5, 290), Ramsey (NJ) Don Bosco Prep - He is probably A&M's best shot right now when it comes the national guys. He lists Texas A&M in his top 8 along with Georgia, LSU, Miami, Michigan St, Ohio State, Rutgers, and Texas. He is making plans to visit Texas A&M unofficially later this month along with Georgia, LSU, Miami, and Texas.https://www.hudl.com/video/3/12871572/61a3de7a4bb31b0accf3cc06OT Samson Okunlola (6-5, 300), Brockton (MA) Thayer Academy - The Aggies may be playing a little catch up but this is one where Addazio's northeast ties could help a lot. Addazio is well connected and has been in communication with Okunlola. The big man has been busy lately between Wrestling and recruiting visits. He stopped through Michigan, Michigan St, and Penn State at the end of March and Rutgers, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon, Florida and Oklahoma are a few who have come on strong.https://www.hudl.com/video/3/13401354/619e5d7af5600a0ac4b63e1fOT Francis Mauigoa (6-5, 330), IMG Academy/American Samoa - Texas A&M did not make his top 13, so they have some ground to cover to be a real player. However, they are not completely out of the mix and if they can get him on campus the Aggies could become a factor. He currently lists a top group of Georgia, Florida, Oklahoma, Texas, Miami, Alabama, Oregon, LSU, Penn State, Ohio State, Hawaii, USC, and Michigan.https://www.hudl.com/video/3/14959888/61567d530dcaca0824f69300Top in-stateRight now when it comes to pure tackles Isaiah Robinson (6-6, 285) is right there at the top of the list. He has had a great spring showing tremendous improvement in flexibility, footwork, and overall mentality. He has been in communication with coach Addazio and they are trying to get to campus for a visit. It looks like May is the most likely time he makes it back to College Station. He has a June OV scheduled to Cal and they're working to get USC and Miami nailed down. The Aggies currently look like a contender for one of the final two visits.https://www.hudl.com/video/3/13261652/61878f556898e50be02c7d26Austin Vandegrift standout Ian Reed (6-6, 290) is right there with Robinson as a top OT in Texas. The Aggies offered on February and he made it to campus in March. A big framed, multi-sport standout with strong athletic genes, Reed has seen his been a hot target for colleges since the end of the season. The Aggies have kept in close contact and he has spoken highly of the Aggie program and coach Addazio. Alabama recently entered the picture after an unofficial visit and he also mentioned he likes what he has seen in Texas and Oklahoma State.https://www.hudl.com/video/3/10131278/61bf895eb019360bac721b1cThings have been trending in the other direction for Garland Naaman Forest OT Markis Deal (6-5, 290). He is being recruited at both OL and DL and the opportunity to play DL is intriguing. The Aggies initially offered as an OL, and have pursued the hardest there. He's a guy who can play both OG and OT on the offensive side. Right now it looks like the Aggies have some ground to cover with the likes of Texas, Oklahoma, TCU, Arkansas, Miami, and USC are a few schools coming on strong.https://www.hudl.com/video/3/9715275/61cf83a6f31de90b9c3ab2faAnother offer to keep an eye on is New Orleans (LA) De La Salle OL Caden Jones (6-7, 305). Texas A&M offered in late March, and he has ties to the Texas A&M program. His uncle Marcus Jasmin was a standout DL for the Aggies and his mother graduated from Texas A&M. He is long with the frame to add plenty of weight and has seen his rock rise this spring. In addition to A&M he has alsk welcomed offers from Florida, Missouri, and West Virginia in the last month.https://www.hudl.com/video/3/12742672/61b6859fbd755f0b9078aa8aThe Aggies are also looking at a few intriguing in-state OT prospects.Melissa OT Trevor Goosby has added 45 pounds since the season and continues to impress with his flexibility and feet. He recently measured in at 6-7, 285 with no shoes on at OU and is starting to see his recruitment hit another gear. He already holds offers from TCU, SMU, and others but Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Auburn, and Alabama are beginning to take a look. He will be in College Station this weekend. He's probably more of a spring eval/camp guy due to his growth, but he is on the radar. He's another multi-sport athlete with a strong athletic family background his dad, Mike Goosby, played in the NFLhttps://www.hudl.com/video/3/14474818/615e47678cdefa0a18200665Southlake Carroll 6-7, 320 OT Drew Perez was in town yesterday. He doesn't have a lot of tape. He moved in from Chicago as a sophomore and played as JV TE. He moved to OT as a Jr served as a back-up last fall, so the tape is minimal. However, he has quickly turned heads at camps and Southlake Carroll coaches believe his stock will skyrocket this spring and summer due to his size and potential. He's also young for a senior. It may take a few games in the fall for his stock to really take off but he is one who could definitely emerge as a top prospect. https://www.hudl.com/video/3/16000394/61941a187bd3670b9c57e0ccRight now the Aggies have some work to do on the National front but i'm not ready to count them out just yet. If they get a few guys on campus and around the team, i think the Aggies can put themselves in prime contention for national name. In-state I think the Aggies have the best shot with Ian Reed.

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)

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.”
