A few notes and stuff from Day 1 of Camp
Alright let's highlight a few of our news, notes, and standouts from today's campNew offerTE Jaden Platt, Haslet Eaton - The 6-5, 225-pound standout earned an offer after a strong camp performance. He stood out from the beginning of drills all the way through to the end, and it was not really a surprise. He has been lighting up camps this spring with an 81-inch wingspan, a 10-4 broad jump, and a 4.8 40 and he has also recently reeled in offers from Iowa State, Texas Tech, and Florida State. He is also pretty new to the position, he moved from QB to WR this fall so he has a lot of upside. The Texas A&M offersDB Bryce Anderson, Beaumont West Brook - Anderson made the trip with several teammates making it his second trip to Aggieland in less than a week. He was able to connect with Bobby Taylor again as well as the coaches. All in all, it looks like the Aggies have some positive momentum going at the moment. DE Ernest Cooper IV, Arlington Martin - He did not camp today but it is notable he was in town to cheer on a few teammates. He will visit Ohio State this weekend and he has plans to take an OV to A&M this summer. CB Laterrance Welch, Lafayette (LA) Acadiana - The LSU commit worked at CB and he is fast and physical. He passes the eyeball test and was in the face of receivers all day long. DB Dalton Brooks, Shiner (2023) - He worked at S during 7-on-7 and worked with the DBs at the camp this afternoon. He showed some nice range across the back end and was able to spend some quality time with and met coach Fisher afterward.DE Jayden Wayne, Tacoma (WA) Lincoln (2023) - talk about turning heads as soon as he walked through the door, that is your guy Wayne. He passes the eye ball test with his size and the athleticism is easy to spot once he goes through drills. He is a different type of prospect and showed very well throughout the day. I would put him as the top performer of the day.DE Dylan Spencer, Houston CE King (2023) - Spencer was the headliner of the DL group this morning. He got the job done in one-on-ones OL Micah Banuelos, Burien (WA) Lincoln Catholic (2023) - An interior prospect he showed quick feet and flexibility and a strong punch to go with it.OL Isendre Ahfua, Seattle (WA) O'Dea (2024) This is another one who just comes right in and commands attention. He goes by the nickname Papa and it is easy to see why he is racking up offers with each and every college visit.Offer Watch There are a few I would guys who showed well today that I could see the Aggies potentially offer down the road, and Houston Thomas and Van Wells, and Micah Bell and Dillon Bell headline that list. Wells is on the short side but he dominated camp like he has all spring long. As an interior/center prospect, he is a high-level prospect. Thomas is a long, lean 6-6, 220 and if the Aggies are going to take a second tight end he made a strong case with his catch radius, body control, and hands all catching the eye. Micah Bell clocked a 4.38 40 and then hit the low 4.4s on his second attempt. Dillon has a stout build and showed a lot of versatility as an offensive playmaker. He was also a standout throughout the day at DT. Washington standout 2023s Jayden Limar and Caleb Presley also caught the eye. Presley is a fluid athlete with good size and showed why several programs have already jumped on board for the CB. Limar showed some real explosion and suddenness while working at RB.If you're looking for a young guy to watch, Melissa 2024 DE Nigel Smith Jr. is your guy. He has the size and the athleticism and already holds offers from LSU, North Texas, UTSA, and Notre Dame. His dad played and SMU, and he is definitely an early offer candidate.Others who caught our attentionRB Marquise Collins, College Station (2023)WR Ashton Simmons, Beaumont West Brook (2024)OL Gage Stanaland, Tuscola Jim Ned (2023)OL Rhett Larson, College Station A&M ConsolidatedCB Tayshawn Wilson, Katy Mayde Creek (2023)S DeJuan Lewis, Pearland Shadow CreekATH Hunter Moddon, Houston Clear Lake (2024)

Expected unofficials and camp names to watch
The final piece to our 5 part June visitor overview takes a look at some of the key names to know that we are expecting to see in College Station throughout the entirety of the month of June as unofficial visitors and/or campers. First off, there are going to be many more names come to campus than we have listed here. There's no way to get a grasp of every single D1 prospect that will be coming to camps. The unofficial visitors are a bit easier to get a hold of, but we'll likely be missing a handful of names, plus or minus. With that said, here's what we've been able to gather so far. It's still a pretty extensive list. If we've got dates of the visits, I'll add those as well.

Wednesday Recruiting notes and stuff
A few recruiting NotesIt should come as no surprise the Aggies made the cut for Denton Ryan 2022 DT Bear Alexander as he released his top 16. It has been said here, but I'll say it again, I expect the Aggies to be in the thick of this one to the end. Coach Elijah Robinson has made Alexander a top priority since Alexander's freshman year and the two have formed quite the bond. Alexander has also said several times the Aggies are high on his list and we know he has been watching the Aggies do their thing on the field this fall. It's still very early for a prediction, but right now I do like the Aggies' chances to win out in the end. So buckle up and stay tuned. (TX) 2022 speedster Brenen Thompson is announcing his top 12 schools tonight at 7 pm. Texas A&M has been keeping in close communication and have let it be known he is a high priority. I haven't been told one way or the other if A&M will make the list but I do like Texas A&M's chances to make the cut today.Brauny has been saying to keep an eye on LSU 2022 S commit Bryce Anderson, and now I am saying to LSU 2022 S commit Bryan Allen is worth watching. Even before the latest coaching changes at LSU, Texas A&M has been keeping in touch with Allen. Texas A&M was very high on him before his LSU commitment and they never let up, but he has been pretty locked in with the Tigers. I am now hearing from DFW sources the Aggies definitely have his attention and that consistent communication, his relationship with the coaches, and the Aggies' play on the field are all playing part in his interest. So go ahead and put Allen down as a guy to watch.Put North Crowley 2022 DE Aaron Austin down as a name to know. He picked up his first two offers from New Mexico and SMU in the last two days and I think his stock is about to see quite an uptick. His new tape shows some violence in the trenches at a legit 6-3, 250. I saw him at a Trench Warfare Showcase in August and he caught my eye. Here's what I had to say then."DL Aaron Austin, North Crowley (2022) 6-3, 250 and he has the look of one of those hybrid DLs we have grown to love. He is quick off the ball, he has long arms, already has a stout build, and he showed well on Saturday."All he did since then was help lead a stout North Crowley defense and played a big role in guiding North Crowley to a 7-4 record and its first playoff win in 17 years. He finished with 49 tackles, 4 sacks, and 10 TFLs in 10 game. Below are his highlights and I recommend watching them. few thoughts from the state championshipsThere was not a lot of recruiting news to be had from the 4A-2A State Championships this year, but there were a couple of guys who caught my attention.Let's talk about the football family known as the Brooks. 2023 ATH Dalton Brooks is one guy who really caught my eye this year and he may very well end up the best prospect of this Brooks family. He is a weapon all over the field on offense and defense and he's a factor on special teams. He has good size at 6-1, 175, and athleticism to go with all that versatility. Definitely put him down as a name to know. He already holds offers from Texas and Arkansas.As for his brother, 2022 DT Doug Brooks, I really love as a player. I mean he is a boss for Shiner. A true-blue stud. That said, I see him as a tweener prospect at 6-foot, 265, and I don't see him as a DT at big P5. He has a Houston offer and I think that's the level he's going to end up playing. Now for their cousin, Hallettsville 2021 RB and Texas signee Jonathon Brooks. I have to say I was very impressed. He runs with great vision and balance and he was tough, tough, tough. We have him ranked No. 73 in the state and I could make a good case for him to be bumped up another 20 or so spots. Good get for the Longhorns. Carthage LB Kip Lewis made plays all over the field for Carthage and he showed well in coverage. He flies to the ball and he packs a punch when he gets there. Good size at 6-3, 200. Very intriguing ball player with speed and instincts. I think FBS interest will find him very soon. Franklin 2023 ATH Bryson Washington did not disappoint. Great size and athleticism for a young guy and he played well on both sides of the ball. There's no doubt in my mind he has a D1 future.Gilmer 2023 ATH Rohan Fluellen also caught my attention. 5-11, 170 he was a fluid athlete and made plays on both sides of the ball. He scored both of Gilmer's early touchdowns and was a presence on defense and special teams. My final 4A-2A and private school prediction results4A D1 Argyle - win4A D2 - West Orange-Stark -Let's make that Carthage - easy call, should've been my first call3A D1 Brock - They knocked out Brock and are rolling so I'm going Jim Ned - held on3A D2 Canadian - pulled it out2A D1 Refugio Give me Shiner - yep2A D2 Mart got to the title game but Windthorst pulled off the upset specialTAPPS D1 - Fort Worth Nolan Catholic - They got to the ship but Parish Epsicopal pulled out the rematchTAPPS D2 - Dallas Christian - Made it to the ship Austin Regents knocked them offSo not so well. I had five original picks make the title game and went 2-3 with the TAPPS schools brearking my heart and Mart getting upset. I went 3-0 in my re-picks after WOS, Refugio, and Brock were knocked out, so there's a silver lining I guess.Original picks - 2-7Revised picks - 5-4Let's see how I'm doing in 6A and 5AThrough the first two rounds only three of my semifinalists have been knocked off, but one of those was Ennis. Are you kidding me Ennis, you were supposed to win state. So here's what we are looking at and I have revised my picks on those who were knocked out. 6A D1 Region I: Arlington MartinRegion II: DuncanvilleRegion III: North ShoreRegion IV: WestlakeChampionship Game: Duncanville, North ShoreChamp: Galena Park North Shore6A D2 Region I: Denton GuyerRegion II: Cedar HillRegion III: KatyRegion IV: Converse Judson VandegriftChampionship Game: Cedar Hill, KatyChamp: Cedar Hill5A D1 Region I: Amarillo Tascosa Lubbock CoronadoRegion II: Denton RyanRegion III: ManvelRegion IV: Flour BluffChampionship Game: Denton Ryan, ManvelChamp: Denton Ryan5A D2 Region I: Lubbock CooperRegion II: Ennis - AledoRegion III: FB MarshallRegion IV: Liberty HillChampionship Game: Ennis Aledo, FB MarshallChamp: Ennis AledoEnjoy your Wednesday

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.”
