Recruiting notes - Wednesday afternoon
- Not trying to pile on with any bad news, but I think it's important that we update ya'll on current recruits being courted by other schools. I mentioned a little bit of it on TexAgs Radio this morning, but I figured I'd give some more specifics on the boards. Jayvon Thomas - TCU sounds like the main contender, as of now. He visited Ft Worth last weekend, and they're doing all they can. Our sources feel like the Aggies can hang on. Bravion Rogers - LSU and Texas are pushing. It sounds like he might even be in Austin this coming weekend. My sources in La Grange thought A&M had enough of a lead to withstand anything in the immediate future. I believe he'll sign with the Aggies but not without a fight. TJ Shanahan - Haven't heard much on specific suitors, but he's one I think could schedule a visit late in the cycle. He met with the coaching staff at length last weekend, and he seems pretty locked in at the moment. If anyone were to jump up here late, keep an eye on LSU and USC. Daymion Sanford - He'll visit Oregon this weekend and likely OU next weekend. Two sources in Katy thought the Aggies were safe here and had built a lead that would be nearly impossible to overcome. David Hicks - Same as Sanford in terms of visits, and I think Texas and Alabama are also sneaking around. It feels like getting him back to College Station before the early signing period is growing in importance by the week. Chase Bisontis - Tough to read because he's in New Jersey and doesn't do a ton of media, but this one feels like it's going to take a massive effort to hold. Finding a way to get him in for a game would be a big deal. - I've heard great things about the official visit of Converse Judson DL Johnny Bowens last weekend. I'm working to get him on the phone to get some quotes, but our sources felt like the Aggie coaching staff did a great job with the family. It sounds like staying close to home would be ideal for everyone involved. - We saw a running back offer go out today to Picayune (MS) standout Dante Dowdell. I've heard some current names also under evaluation at the position are New Caney's Kedrick Reescano, Midlothian's Deago Benson, and Montgomery (AL) Catholic's Jeremiah Cobb. A source in Florida told me today that the Aggies remain in contact with Cedric Baxter Jr., but I didn't get the feeling there was any momentum behind it. - Still a long way out, but we have heard that TCU is also after 2024 A&M commit Dealyn Evans.

Texas A&M hosted recruits for a football game at Kyle Field for the first time in 42 days on Saturday. With just six weeks until the December signing period, Ryan Brauninger provides a look at A&M's recruiting efforts on the offensive side of the ball in the class of 2023.

Some thoughts on the 2023 recruiting class…
As I stated in the stickied article and on Twitter, it was important to get Bravion Rogers back into the class, regardless of how it all went down. This is still a national 100 prospect and a kid that possesses the requisite skill set to be an early impact player at the collegiate level. He was a kid that felt like a must-get at the start of this recruiting calendar, and the Aggies needed to land him. Shortly after his abrupt exit from the class back in early August, I spoke with multiple sources in the area who were confident that the LSU overtures would be short lived and that he'd be back with the Maroon & White rather soon. They were right. Kudos should go to TJ Rushing and Jimbo Fisher. Much like the Gabriel Brownlow-Dindy pursuit last year, the A&M coaches didn't overreact or burn any bridges when Bravion backed away from his verbal pledge. They stayed consistent with their communication and messaging. This staff is full of really talented recruiters who understand the importance of 1) establishing connections and building relationships and 2) playing the long game. It's why you don't panic in the recruitments like this one, or Johnny Bowens, or even David Hicks in the face of OU's momentum. September could wind up being the most impactful month of the calendar for A&M's recruiting efforts. It started with today's recommitment, but there is so much more on the table. Now holding 10 verbal commitments, it isn't out of the realm of possibility that the Aggies add to that number by nearly a handful by the end of the month. It goes without saying that the Miami weekend is big. We anticipate that it's going to rival last year's Alabama weekend in terms of both quality and quantity in the visitor's list. What kind of impact could an electric atmosphere for a night game at Kyle have on a specific kid or two?Standout WR Hykeem Williams is expected make a decision later this month, and we still maintain Austin Westlake OL TJ Shanahan's recruitment could come to an end in short order even though he's not set a specific day/time for an announcement. I know y'all hate hearing it, but there's still very much a chance this 2023 recruiting class, while being smaller in number, can still deliver a similar impact to last year's historic group. Now, I'm not saying A&M will finish number one overall, but I am saying they could close on a class that continues their ascent up the elite talent ranks in college football. Just look at the list of players that the Aggies are still in contention for. They won't land all these, but you get the idea. QB Malachi Nelson RB Roderick Robinson RB Jeremiyah Love RB Rueben Owens RB Cedric Baxter Jr. WR Zachariah Branch WR Hykeem Williams WR Andy Jean WR Anthony Evans WR Micah TeaseWR Jalen HaleOL TJ Shanahan OL Caden Jones DL David Hicks DL Johnny Bowens LB Derion Gullette LB Tausili Akana DB Peyton Bowen DB Javien Toviano DB Tony Mitchell Finally, as we've stated numerous times, we are hearing enough to make us believe a couple of key 2024s could be ready to come off the board in relative short order.

Monday afternoon recruiting notes
- I recently mentioned the Aggies still being on the periphery for Orlando (FL) RB and Texas commit Cedric Baxter Jr.. Well, based on a conversation I had today, it's sounding more and more like A&M will get him on campus at least once between now and signing day. I'm being told Baxter has his eye on a handful of unofficial visits throughout the football season, and College Station is a spot they've got circled. Furthermore, it's looking like he will hold a few official visits for December. The Aggies are in the mix for one of those, as well. Florida, Miami, and Georgia are also in the discussion. - Staying in Florida, the Aggies continue to hold firm with WR Hykeem Williams according to a Sunshine State source. Florida State is the biggest mover with Miami and Georgia still battling to stay in the race. However, my source thought Kyle Field at night might be enough to slam this one shut. As I've said before though, I anticipate Williams taking more visits regardless of what school he chooses later this month. - A pair of 2024 names I've heard good reports about this week in terms of A&M's standing: Waco Connally CB Kobe Black and Lake Belton WR Micah Hudson. I anticipate both of them making trips to Aggieland soon with Black being very much a possibility to show up on this coming weekend's visitor list. - Here's a name that came across my radar today that we haven't mentioned too much this cycle: Oklahoma City (OK) WR Micah Tease. It wouldn't surprise me to see him visit A&M - perhaps in an official capacity - soon. He's currently committed to Arkansas. - We still feel good about the Aggies potentially adding to their list of commits in short order. - I received more evidence today that the Miami game visitor list is going to be ridiculous. We already knew that, but there are kids across the state and country calling the Aggies trying to figure out a way to get to Kyle Field for that one. - Remember when Malachi Nelson visited over the summer and how long that trip stayed under wraps? I'm thinking we'll see that happen 1 or 2 more times with other kids this cycle. It's definitely at least worth mentioning again. Like I said above, A&M is fielding a bunch of phone calls from interested parties from coast to coast.

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)

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.”
