Under Armour Camp Notes
Some quick recruiting notesHumble Summer Creek OL Kelvin Banks has the Aggies in his top 8 and the Aggies are definitely a player. He mentioned the Aggies have been in it from the start, ever since he took his first college visit to College Station. He already has an official visit scheduled to Texas A&M June 18-20 if the dead period ends. He also has a visit scheduled to Oklahoma State. The Aggies have been coming on strong for Arlington Bowie OL Devon Campbell. Where it once seemed like there was no shot, I would say the Aggies are now in the mix. There is still ground to cover IMO, but it is clear he is at least giving the Aggies a look. He likes what he sees the Aggies building in the 2022 class and he likes how coach Henson constantly stayed on him to let him know he was a big priority. Ernest Cooper IV is thinking about getting up to the spring game May 24. He wants to take some visits before coming up with a top group but he said the Aggies would be in his top 5 because of coach Price, coach Fisher, and the athletes they produce. Notre Dame, Texas, and Oregon are three schools he mentioned also coming on strong. I was a little surprised he didn't mention Stanford but that may have just been a simple omission because he did apparently mention them to some other reportersI love Jadon Scarlett. He's so explosive in the trenches and he was great today. He worked inside which is where he will likely project to the college level. Great overall strength and a powerful base. On the recruiting front the Aggies are right there towards the top. I talked to a few people and it sounds like the Aggies are the favorite right now. He is not planning to announce a decision or anything any time soon, but the Aggies are in a good spotRecent Texas A&M offer Derrick Brown of Texarkana Texas High says he is keeping an open mind right now. Coach Price has already made a strong impression. He said coach Price reminds him of his coaches at Texas High in how they speak honestly whether its good or bad. Education is big on his list of factors. He wants to major in Kinesiology and become a coach. He's planning to visit Texas and Oklahoma in the next few months and has an official visit scheduled to Oklahoma for the fall. I bet he ends up making it to College Station too.Rockwall-Heath WR Jay Fair seemed like he was nearing a decision but it looks like he may slow things down as well. TCU and Texas A&M are leading the way right now, but he says he may hold off on a commitment for a few months with Ohio State, Alabama, and Oregon all coming on strong. Pilot Point ATH Ish Harris says the next step is narrowing things down to three. Right now he plans to make a decision this fall. I like the Aggies chances to make the cut and it sounds like Oklahoma and Texas are also in that list. Like I have said since the Aggies offered, I like their chances. He wants to major in Ag Engineering and he's a smalltown guy.Plano John Paul II CB Terrance Brooks is looking at making a decision sometime during the middle or late summer. He wants to name a top 5 in May or April. Coach Rushing has really done a great job building that relationship and the Aggies seem to be in a great spot for Brooks. In addition to the Aggies, Texas, Alabama, Oregon, Nebraska, and Notre Dame are coming strong. Katy Morton Ranch 2023 DL David Hicks likes Texas A&M a lot and he likes how real coach Robinson has been. He is not narrowing things down just yet, but Texas A&M is high on his list. Arizona State, Texas, Alabama, and Oklahoma were other schools he mentioned were coming on strong.Some other quick thoughtsI thought Hunter Erb and Neto Umeozulu both really opened some eyes today, not mine, but some national services seemed to take notice. They were very strong on the day. I came away really impressed with Jarred Kerr who had a big INT in one-on-onesDeSoto 2023 WR Johntay Cook and North Mesquite 2023 WR Cordale Russell continue to impress. Cook has added some very nice weight and Russell looks like a beast.Jay Fair had himself a very strong day running routes.The usual suspects showed out in the trenches. I mentioned Jadon Scarlett above. I thought he was really good but I thought Kelvin Banks and Devon Campbell performed well. Bear Alexander did his thing as well. Overall I thought it was a pretty solid day for the Texas A&M commits Erb was co-OL MVP with Neto. PJ Williams and Donovan Green did their thing and are both headed to the Under Armour All-American game, and it would not surprise me if Anthony James got an invitation in the future either.

I hope you guys wanted more Thursday recruiting notes
Earlier this week the Aggies did an in-home visit with Pilot Point LB/ATH Ish Harris and I was told the Aggies knocked it out of the park. Harris and his parents were on the call along with Pilot Point recruiting coordinator Travis Marsh. Coaches Terry Price and Tyler Santucci led the Aggies efforts. I was told Mikado Hinson made a strong impression and overall it went really well. The Aggies made his top five and like I've said before I think it comes down to Texas A&M, Texas, and Oklahoma, and I continue to like the Aggies' chances. Last night the Aggies hosted Duncanville OL Jaylen Early for a Zoom meeting. Early's family was on the call and coach Henson led the meeting. Early said the Aggie Network and the facilities stood out the most on the visit, and Texas A&M did their best to show him and his family there is no place like Texas A&M. Overall it sounds like the meeting was a positive, and like I said yesterday, it looks like the Aggies have positioned themselves nicely to make the cut when Early trims his list.I highlighted Dallas South Oak Cliff 2023 CB Jayvon Thomas in Around Texas earlier today, but I wanted to drop a quick note here. He is on Texas A&M's radar and after watching his tape I could see him quickly rising up the Aggies recruiting board. He has received several offers over the last few weeks with Baylor, Oklahoma, and USC among those. Texas and Texas A&M are both looking hard right now. He is already generating quite a bit of buzz at South Oak Cliff since his arrival. Those guys know a thing or two about nationally ranked CBs and I have been told Jayvon has the tools to be the best they have had in a long time. You guys may have noticed Liucci picked Carrollton Creekview TE Sean Sallis in the TexAgs Offensive fantasy draft yesterday. He has emerged on the Aggies radar over the last few weeks. Coach Coley has been in communication with the 6-5, 220-pound standout. Sallis has always been a receiving threat for Creekview but he has worked hard to diversify his skillset as a tight end and he has bought into the idea of being an all-around tight end over the last couple of years. He finished the 2020 season with 34 receptions for 605 yards and 10 TDs in 8 games. We are not expecting the Aggies to take a second tight end but if they do, he is a guy to watch and as Billy mentioned his stock is on the rise. Minnesota, Maryland, and UConn offered in February and Florida State, Texas, and Clemson are among those who have stepped up their interest.On Sunday the Under Armour Camp comes to Texas and there are going to be several Texas A&M targets in attendance. Five commitments will be on hand with TE Donovan Green, OL Hunter Erb, OL PJ Williams, CB Bobby Taylor, and DE Anthony James (2023) all representing Texas A&M. In regards to targets keep an eye on the trenches. In addition to the commits, targets Kelvin Banks, Kam Dewberry, Neto Umeozulu, Cole Hutson, Jaylen Early, Devon Campbell, Johnny Dickson, Harris Sewell (2023), and Isaiah Robinson (2023) will all be in attendance. On the defensive line Bear Alexander, Jadon Scarlett, Ernest Cooper IV, Derrick Brown, Jordan Renaud (2023), David Hicks (2023), and Avion Carter (2023) join commit Anthony James. The secondary will also be one to watch with several key targets in attendance. CB Bobby Taylor is dealing with a knee which has slowed him this spring so he may not workout, but Terrance Brooks, Bryce Anderson, Jarred Kerr, Jamel Johnson (2023), Javien Toviano (2023), and Daniel Demery (2023) each already hold scholarship offers and are key Texas A&M targets. At the offensive skill positions WR Jay Fair, RB Tavorus Jones, and Texas 2023 RB commit Rueben Owens join Texas A&M TE Donovan Green.Linebacker will also be well represented with targets Ish Harris, Kip Lewis, and Anthony Hill (2023) planning to be on hand for the action.

Interesting in-state offer ('22)
The Ags have officially moved on Texas High (Texarkana) OLB/DE Derrick Brown. The 6-4, 200-pounder is considered an OU lean (the Sooners inked Clayton Smith from the same program in December). Texas and now A&M should be considered players in this race, as well, as Terry Price and the Ags have been recruiting Brown behind the scenes. This is one of those you hope extends into the late spring or summer if your A&M.

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.”
